What women want

Men’s Health asked 1,400 women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s about their deepest dating and sex secrets. This is the only part of the post I actually worked on. Everything else was copied. Including their pic and title, because I’m lazy.

20s
With youth comes beauty, ambition, and energy, but also inexperience (and its annoying sister, insecurity). Our survey revealed that trying to label women in this decade of discovery is about as easy as predicting what getup Lady Gaga will wear to her next awards show.

17% are up for sex on the first date if there’s chemistry
1 in 5 have had intercourse with only one partner
Kindness was the highest-ranked quality in a long-term partner
9 in 10 have talked dirty during sex
38% had two or more orgasms during their most recent sexual encounter
27% didn’t reach orgasm during their most recent sexual encounter
30% say they want more oral sex performed on them
33% keep their pubic area bare

30s
Obsessions with socializing and fitting in are on the wane. Women in their 30s are more interested in being happy. She may have a lot on her plate—career, friends, a home—but she’s independent and ready to indulge her desires. Our survey revealed a sexual awakening: Women at this stage have learned to enjoy themselves.

Sense of Humor was the highest-ranked quality in a long-term partner
48% had one orgasm during their most recent sexual encounter
22% had two orgasms during their most recent sexual encounter
2 in 3 have used pornography during sex
60% have had more than five sex partners
33% want more oral sex performed on them
19% want more kissing
14% used a vibrator during their last sexual encounter
26% keep their pubic area mostly shaved or waxed

40s
These women know what they want, and they’re not afraid to ask for it. Maybe it’s because they’ve done the marriage-and-kids thing, or maybe they’re just successful, self-assured, and feel no pressure to settle down. Our survey revealed that a woman in her 40s might be demanding, but that has its upside: more adventure between the sheets.

29% are up for sex on the first date if there’s chemistry
Kindness was the highestranked quality in a long-term partner
86% had one or more orgasms during their most recent sexual encounter
68% reached orgasm before their partner did during their most recent sexual encounter
28% want more oral sex
38% have used a blindfold during sex
69% have masturbated in front of a partner
1 in 4 have had intercourse with 20 or more partners
30% keep their pubic area mostly shaved or waxed

As usual the reporter had to try out his or her (in this case her) comedy act out. That Lady Gaga line was pure gold.
