SURVEY REVEALS ORGASM INEQUALITY IN CANADA: ONLY 24% OF WOMEN ORGASM EVERY TIME THEY HAVE SEX VS 61% OF MEN
Durex Calls on Canadians to Close the Gap with Education & Awareness Campaign: #OrgasmsForAll
MISSISSAUGA, ON, APRIL 19, 2017 - Durex®, the number one condom brand in the world and sexual well-being leader, has conducted a survey* to uncover the state of sexual satisfaction in Canada. As a result, Durex has launched the #OrgasmsForAll campaign to generate awareness and encourage conversation about the ‘orgasm gap’ that was revealed, and rally Canadians to join the movement for orgasm equality.
The survey showed that 61% of men compared to 24% of women orgasm every time they have sex. Perhaps more disheartening, 83% of women are content with how often they orgasm, suggesting that women accept the infrequency of their orgasms while the antiquated notion of male ‘pleasure privilege’ still prevails.
“We wanted to better understand what the sexual expectations of Canadian men and women are, compared to what is actually happening in the bedroom, and the discrepancies were significant,” said Yuwen Huang, Brand Manager, Durex Canada. “Inspiring #OrgasmsForAll, the campaign aims to reveal this ‘orgasm gap’ and reassure Canadians that everyone deserves to have an earth-shattering experience, every time, by educating about the realities of orgasms and how to achieve them more often.”
Amazingly, 94% of men think it’s important that their partner orgasm during sex, however 54% of women do not feel completely comfortable talking to their partner about how they can help them orgasm, a communication barrier that is a likely contributor to the issue.
To start the conversation, Durex has assembled the ‘O-Team’, a group of influencers who are helping to educate Canadians on improving their sex lives and increasing sexual satisfaction among women nationwide.
The campaign is supported by the launch of Durex Intense Orgasmic Range, featuring Durex Intense Orgasmic Gel. Created specifically for female pleasure, the product features DesireX Gel which is designed to increase sensation for an intensified sexual experience.
#OrgasmsForAll is a PR and social media campaign, launching April 19, 2017 and building up to an event in downtown Toronto.
