Thank you very much for your interest in our study on orgasm frequency and partnersex. We ask you kindly to read through the following information on the background of this study, terminology, and general things you need to know. Please confirm your participation below.
Background and Study Goal
light on a significant gap in orgasm frequency in partnersex across
different sexual orientations and genders. In females in heterosexual
partnersex, anorgasmia (the inability to reach an orgasm) is
especially common and a leading topic of interest in sexual medicine. Latest
numbers suggest that female orgasm occurs approximately 30% less frequent
than male orgasm in heterosexual partnersex. The study at hand wants to
investigate upon this finding as well as on possible reasons for it. We are aware that sexuality as well as the experience and the understanding of an orgasm are very personal. We do not want to suggest that the experience of an orgasm is a necessity for sexual pleasure or sexual health. Nevertheless, results could contribute to a more balanced and equal understanding and
experience of sexuality for all. Please note that throughout the survey part of this study, there are no wrong or right answers. It is your personal experience we are interested in.
It should take approximately 15 minutes to complete this survey.
This is a research project being conducted by Lenya Koechlin, a medical student at University of Basel, and under the direction of PD Dr. med. Gideon Sartorius and Prof. Dr. sc. nat. Daniel Haag-Wackernagel. If you have questions or comments about the study or the procedures, you may contact email@example.com.

Our study is
based on medical, biological, and sociocultural theories of
sexual pleasure and orgasm. We understand sexuality and gender to be a
shared product of biology and culture. Whenever possible, we refrain from
using the terms woman and man and refer to people
with vagina, respectively biological women, and people with penis,
or biological men, instead. Otherwise, woman and man
also include transwoman and transman. The umbrella term non-binary
stands for all gender-identities that are not aligned with the two-gender
system (agender, genderfluid, demigirl, etc.).
referred to as a sexual activity with another person.
