Preferences in sex vary among individuals. While some go for long foreplay, others may opt for a quicker approach. A leading UK sex toy company conducted a survey to explore the sexual satisfaction levels of men and women across different age groups a while ago. Here are some interesting findings from the 'Sexual Happiness Study.'
• Nine out of 10 men reported experiencing orgasm during sexual intercourse, compared with only seven out of ten women. This conclusion was drawn from surveying 3,000 individuals in the UK, US, and Australia.

• Thirty-percent of women surveyed expressed their dislike for feeling self-conscious during sex. Similarly, women also voiced concerns about inadequate foreplay, difficulty achieving orgasm, and interruptions during intercourse.
• Insufficient foreplay significantly contributes to dissatisfaction among women. Foreplay is like an appetiser before the main course and is crucial for fully enjoying sex.

• Women may experience body confidence issues post-childbirth, often fixating on their appearance. No woman wants to hear criticism about her physical appeal. Even if a man refrains from lying to appease her, he should prioritise making her feel comfortable and loved, with all her imperfections included.
• Bragging about sexual prowess is off-putting to women. No woman likes to hear how you perform in bed and with how many women you have had sex before.

• Continually asking a woman if she has reached orgasm is disappointing to them. This question may stem from the man’s curiosity fuelled by misconceptions about female orgasm. It is best to avoid repetitive questioning in this regard.
• Avoid excessively probing for the G spot, especially based solely on internet knowledge. The extent of exploration desired by a woman is a personal matter.

• Some men treat the woman's body like a mere object of sexual satisfaction. It is essential to appreciate her beyond physical attributes and acknowledge her other skills.
• Many individuals rely on pornographic content for sex education, but it is crucial to recognize that not everything depicted in such material is suitable for real-life application.
