E98: Lesbian and Straight Women - Who Has Better Sex, and Why?
Recent studies show that there is a big orgasm gap between men in women: roughly 65% of heterosexual women orgasm in partner sex, compared to an overwhelming 95% of heterosexual men. What's really interesting though is that lesbian women's orgasm rates are very close to those of heterosexual men at 85%. On today's episode, Dr. Valeria and sex coach Sarah Martin talk about some of the reasons why orgasm rates are so much higher in lesbian women, and what contributes to their superior sexual satisfaction compared to heterosexual women.

Something for everyone
I have listened to many episodes in this series and find the conversations interesting and helpful. Some are less engaging than others with a bit too much agreement between presenters. I found the 6 episodes, finishing with E53, on sexuality and spirituality the most interesting. Keep up the great work!
