Beducated Talks Masturbation May, Bridging the Orgasm Gap through Solo Exploration

In celebration of Masturbation May, Beducated, the world’s largest digital sex education platform for adults, is shedding light on a crucial topic: the potential of masturbation to close the orgasm gap between men and women.

Recent findings highlight a significant discrepancy in orgasm frequency during partnered sex,

with 85% of men reporting they orgasm “every time” or “most of the time” compared to only 46% of women. However, this gap nearly vanishes when it comes to solo sexual activities, with 86% of men and 88% of women achieving orgasm during masturbation.

A pivotal 2022 study from Spain supports these findings, revealing that women with a higher level of solitary sexual desire tend to experience greater orgasm satisfaction in sexual relationships. Conversely, women who hold negative views about masturbation often report fewer orgasms during partnered encounters. 

“That isn’t surprising – greater sexual self-knowledge and comfort with one’s body and needs will obviously lead to better sex.”

The benefits of self-pleasure extend beyond balancing the scales of sexual satisfaction: it em- powers individuals with sexual self-knowledge, enabling them to identify their pleasure zones and preferred methods of stimulation, communicate their likes and dislikes and set healthy boundaries to foster confidence in the bedroom.

Beducated encourages individuals to embrace and explore the benefits of masturbation, not only during Masturbation May, but as a continual practice for improving sexual health and relationships.
