Women tend to reach orgasm more quickly during masturbation than with a partner, a new Journal of Sexual Medicine paper reports.
After analyzing data from 2,304 women, researchers found that the average orgasm latency time during masturbation was 8 minutes. During partnered sex, the average time was 14 minutes.
However, more than half the women said that orgasms with a partner were more satisfying.
In general, women who reported orgasm difficulties needed more time when they were with a partner, but not when they masturbated.
The authors also discussed possible reasons for longer orgasm latency time during partnered sex and further differences between women with and without orgasm difficulties. Read more.
