Infographic: Rates of Orgasm by Sexual Orientation and Gender

Much has been said and written about the "orgasm gap," or the idea that men tend to have far more consistent experiences with orgasm than women. However, the vast majority of the research on this topic to date has focused on heterosexuals, which begs the question of how sexual orientation might factor into this equation. In other words, is there still an orgasm gap between men and women who are either gay or bisexual? For a look at the answer, check out the infographic below, which features data from a new study just published in The Archives of Sexual Behavior.

The results suggest that an orgasm gap exists across sexual orientations; however, whereas the gap between heterosexual men and women is 30 percentage points, it drops to 22 for bisexuals and just 3 for gays and lesbians.
