About the event

We are back for our second panel debate of the year, this time exploring The Orgasm Gap in the run up to Valentine's Day! According to a study conducted last year by Durex almost 75% of women in the Netherlands do not orgasm during sex, whereas only 28% of men say they don’t always climax during sex. Studies have also found that comparatively women orgasm more in lesbian relationships and when masturbating alone. This so-called "orgasm inequality" in heterosexual couples is a real phenomenon, which is affecting intimacy, relationships and the wellbeing of many worldwide. Our panel experts will be sharing their knowledge and offering practical solutions to narrow the gap and bring more pleasure to all.
