(Newser) – Figures may not lie, but people do—especially, it seems, when it comes to sex. The most comprehensive study of Americans' sex lives since 1994 finds a strange "perception gap" related to orgasm: While 85% of the male respondents said their latest sexual partner had an orgasm, only 64% of the women reported having an orgasm in their most recent sexual event, notes AP.

The study, funded by the makers of Trojan condoms, also found relatively high condom use among young people and low use among men aged 50 and older. Also interesting: Rates of condom use among black and Hispanic men were significantly higher than for whites, which may mean HIV-AIDS awareness programs are making headway in communities more heavily affected by the disease.
