Why are women twice as likely to go down on their partners than men are?



Least surprising study ever finds that women are giving but not receiving oral sex

A study published in The Canadian Journal of Human Sexuality found women are more than twice as likely to go down on their partners than men are.

Researchers found that young women are giving plenty of oral sex—but not receiving it in equal proportions.

"Men were significantly more likely than women to report receiving but not giving oral sex," says the researchers.

Both the men and women said that performing oral sex on women is a "bigger deal" than performing oral sex on men. By "bigger deal" they meant it's more "distasteful" for men than women, and that it is "easier" for men to receive.

  • Because licking lollipops is enjoyable and spending half an hour just licking a piece of roast beef isn't?

    Horrible horrible jokes aside, meh. No clue. Female oral does seem to be in its young stage to me somehow, while male oral comes across like an ancient, obvious thing.
    I personally don't get much out of female oral though so I guess I've never given it much thought.

  • Vaginas are less likely to be clean? Maybe men fear that women don't clean their vaginas.

    • The men liking this and the woman disliking prove your right 😄

What Girls & Guys Said

  • Some guys just suck at oral and I used to avoid it rather than telling them how to improve before. I used to say I didn't like oral because it would get boring, this was when I had my first partner. But once I started to say what I liked and told them how to do it it's been better.

    Also some guys just don't like giving oral. I remember my ex said he didn't like giving oral and it was a turn off. I was still expected to give oral to him though. Now I have a boyfriend and we 69 all the time before penetrative sex

    • Yeah I guess it confirms it then, I wasn't gonna say it but thats about the reponse I thought youd write

    • @Darknut ok

    • Yep!

  • I find it hilarious to read that some say it's a "submissive" act to go down on a guy. I see it as more so dominating as the woman has the male's most sensitive body part in between her teeth!

  • A lot of selfish guys, plus I think a lot of women are still raised to think enjoying sex is something we should feel bad about.

    • That's not my way of doing things I'm going to say clean up cuz I want something

  • Because men are big suck asses who only give a shit about them getting off and not worrying about the woman.

  • That is an excellent question!! ;-)... I wish I knew the answer, my man doesn't go down on me nearly enough. I really enjoy going down on him, but I think because I'm more proficient at oral than he is, it makes him want to do it less.

    • That is obviously because he doesn't get enough practice. But I guess he has you fooled with that excuse. :)

    • We haven't discussed it, this is just my observation.

  • probably because guys are more often wanting to just hook up and get sex so they don't care to please a woman as much or go down in a hook up or casual sex. Guys are more likely to when in a relationship though

  • women are general submissive while men are more often than not dominate

  • Because giving oral is seen as a submissive act by many people.

  • I feel like it would be awkward for either person. If a girl likes doing it I would allow it but It would still feel awkward seeing her down there. It just feels demeaning to me...

  • I guess women are more likely to partake in submissive sexual acts?

  • No.. Not true. You should chance your sources.
    By the way! Males do taste "bad" too.. By bad i mean pee, by pee i mean salty..
    And smell fishy.

    • Ur pussy smells fishy

    • A penis shouldn't have as much of a taste or smell like a vagina does though

    • @deydey12345 so tell the next guy to wash his dick because I have never seen or smelt or tasted any pee when going down on a guy.

  • Most guys don't think they have to go down on a girl even if she goes down on him. It's more of dominance thing most guys think of. But it's only fair to go down on her if she goes down on you.

  • I know why.

    Men are twice as likely to push our heads down then women.

  • I know why

    • Tell me why

    • Because.

    • Thanks for explaining

  • Some women do it because they enjoy feeling submissive but powerful, other women do it because it makes them feel womanly, and still others do it because they know men like it.

    Most women simply don't ask their guys to eat them.

  • I think it’s just because it’s harder to get us to climax, so guys give up trying.

  • these days, there are studies saying pretty much everything you want xD

    • Accurate observation.

    • @ericclayton that's why peer reviewed empiric science is so important. in the age of google everyone can find papers for their bullshit.

    • Especially when Buzzfeed (or something like that) takes some junk science study performed on 10 people, and idiots accept it as "fact".

  • Because women dont want to get pregnant. Also women are less likely to give suggestions as to what they like or dislike or what feels good. So if someone is doing something wrong women will avoid it rather than discuss how to make it better.

    Also women are much more insecure about their bodies. They see fat rolls on their belly and dont want the man bringing his face to the fat rolls

    Most of womens problems are caused by women themselves it has taken me my whole life to realize this but i take responsibility for my problems and choose not to blame men or other people for my own issues. Unfortunately we live in a society that shuns responsibility at all costs, including piece of mind and happiness.

    • You're a wise lady 😀

    • @WhoDatGuy or just a stoner

    • You are worried about him seeing a few fat rolls - he's in the wrong place if he is - and you are looking at a couple of hair balls and a hairy pogo stick?

  • That's because they haven't dated me. I'm not submissive, but I'm always down for busting a munch on some snatch.

  • I like giving and receiving
