EQ = Sexual Fulfillment

A study involving 2,035 women revealed that up to 30% of women suffer from female orgasmic disorder (FOD), the second most common type of female sexual dysfunction. FOD has been acknowledged to be multifactorial and recent research has implicated the importance of psychosocial risk factors.

According to this classification system, female orgasmic disorder (FOD), the second most frequently reported women’s sexual problem after low desire, is defined as: Recurrent or persistent difficulty, delay in or absence of attaining orgasm after sufficient sexual stimulation and following normal sexual arousal, which causes personal distress. The result: two in five women (39%) never or infrequently achieve orgasm through intercourse.

A significant association was found between EQ (emotional intelligence) and frequency of orgasm.

Emotional intelligence describes the ability to monitor one’s own and others’ feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them and to use this information to guide one’s thinking and actions.

Women in the bottom 25 per cent of the emotional intelligence range had twice the normal risk of infrequent orgasm.

Emotional intelligence seems to have a direct impact on women’s sexual functioning by influencing her ability to communicate her sexual expectations and desires to her partner.
