How important are orgasms to Belgians? In honour of Orgasm Day (tomorrow, 21 December) we just had to find out. What’s the easiest way to reach the big O and do women really fake it that often? Our survey among more than 5,000 Belgians shows that over three quarters of Belgians would prefer a 30-minute orgasm to a lifetime supply of their favourite snack food. Although we’d rather turn down a snack than an orgasm, that does not mean that every time you hit the sheets should end with a climax.
The battle of the sexes
For 63.7% of men ‘classic’ intercourse is the easiest way to climax. That figure is only 41.9% for women. The percentages for oral sex (34.6 vs. 23.4%) and masturbation (18.6% vs. 9.4%) on the other hand are higher for women.
Gearing up to have more powerful orgasms? Belgians seem to know all about it: 68% of women and 60.7% of men claim they’ve had a full body orgasm.
Fake it ‘till you make it
Is honesty the best policy in the bedroom? According to our figures, especially women dare to fake it. Almost half (47.1%) of women admit to having faked an orgasm before. Women above 50 (38.5%) seem to pretend less than younger women (50.7%). If you thought faking it is only for women, you’re wrong. 11.9% of men have pretended to reach the finish line.
Belgians love to give
Belgians seem to find it very important to be able to sexually satisfy their partners. Not being able to do so would bother 9 out of 10 Belgians. Almost all Belgians indicate they are willing to learn how to satisfy their partners better.
Paprika ridged crisps vs. 30-minute orgasm
There’s no doubt orgasms are considered important, but how important exactly? Our survey shows that 77.6% of Belgians would prefer one single orgasm of 30 minutes to a lifetime supply of their favourite snack food. Mainly women get tempted by the thought of their favourite snacks. 25.9% of women and 18.9% of men would prefer a lifetime supply of paprika ridged crisps, American cookies or gummy bears. Although we’d rather turn down a snack than an orgasm, that does not mean that every time between the sheets should end with a climax. Our survey shows that only 36.3% of Belgians think that orgasms are the most important part of sex.
