Orgasm for women has been discussed after a number of important and at times controversial studies that eventually highlight an increasing awareness regarding sexual pleasure for both man and woman during sex. Meanwhile it's the concept of both partners getting to an orgasm at the same moment during intercourse that has been seen as a high point for sexual satisfaction.

Even as the idea may seem too demanding going by common perception, a new study reveals that the number of couples having an orgasm at the same time is surprisingly high. While 89 percent said that they have had shared orgasms in the course of their relationship, 37 percent couples said that they have shared orgasms as often as half the times they have sex.

Meanwhile there was also the issue of 61 percent women saying they found it hard to orgasm during sex, while it was the case for just 24 percent men. Around six of ten couples prioritise a shared orgasm as a goal and put in effort.

While getting the pose right and men putting effort into simulation are crucial aspects, half of the couples said that one partner reached the trigger point and waited for the other before climaxing.
