(Newser) – A new study out of the Kinsey Institute finds that lesbians have more orgasms than their straight or bisexual peers, reports the Huffington Post. Study participants were asked to report the percentage of times they climax with a familiar partner, and the differences among women were surprisingly large:

  • Heterosexual: 62%
  • Bisexual: 58%
  • Lesbian: 75%

So what gives? Researchers speculate in the Journal of Sexual Medicine that it could be because lesbian sex tends to last longer, reports the Toronto Sun. Or maybe, they write, it's that "lesbian women are more comfortable and familiar with the female body and thus, on average, are better able to induce orgasm in their female partners." Whatever the reason, the 75% rate for lesbians still trails men of all kinds, with straight guys reporting a rate of 86%, gay men 85%, and bisexual men 78%. "Yet another glass ceiling for womynkind to shatter," observes Callie Beusman at Jezebel.

Why the press, DC, Hollywood, and colleges want to promote the gay lifestyle is beyond me.. They have better sex, kids, relationships, home, jobs, and what ever, yet I have never met a group of more anger people in my life. Give me a break.
