Women Aren’t Happy With Their Sex Lives, New Study Says

Here are the top five areas women are struggling with.

Leading menstruation tracker app, Flo Health, releases its “Unlock Your Orgasm” program.

According to Flo’s latest study of 1,500 women from ages 18 to 55, “More than half (58%) can’t say they are fully satisfied with the quality of their orgasms, while 62% can’t say they are fully satisfied with the frequency,” the brand shared.

As the World Health Organization shares, “positive sexual health is fundamental to a woman’s overall well-being.” However, shame and lack of comprehensive sex education limit women’s access to care, which has harmful implications on wellness.

Casey Tanner, Flo Medical Expert, Certified Sex Therapist, and collaborator on Unlock Your Orgasm, commented: “Unlock Your Orgasm isn’t the standard sex ed course that leaves you feeling awkward or gives you a couple of condoms and sends you on your way. This program represents a paradigm shift in sexual education. By offering personalized support and resources, we take a look at the tools that have been used previously to measure a ‘good sex life’ and replace them with personalized ways of attuning to your sexuality. We’re empowering women worldwide to prioritize their sexual wellness and experience fulfillment on their own terms.”

Here are the top five sexual wellness areas women struggle with most, according to Flo’s study.

Orgasms: More than half (58%) can’t say they are fully satisfied with the quality of their orgasms, while 62% can’t say they are fully satisfied with the frequency.

Shame and stigma: 1 in 4 (24%) women find sex shameful.

Libido: 46% want to learn more about what turns them on.

Communication: A third (33%) of women want to better communicate what they want to their partner.

Self-pleasure: 7 in 10 (70%) women say they enjoy masturbation and self-pleasure, and yet 17% never set time aside for it.
