Orgasmic Behavior in Educated Turkish Women

*Umit Sayin, Neylan Ziyalar and Ipek Kahya, Istanbul University, Institute of Forensic Sciences 34303 Cerrahpasa, Istanbul, Turkey.

 

Rationale: Turkey is a secular, democratic country where 99 % of the population is Muslim. No detailed research has ever been done and published on the basic sexual physiology of Turkish women. The aim of this study was to investigate orgasmic behavior of educated Turkish women as a continuation of the survey that determined the basic sexual response of these women.

Methods: A survey of 59 questions were delivered for 8 months in a feminist women’s magazine, of which readers were mostly educated and activist women similar to the subject group of Shere Hite. During this time, 1650 completed questionnaire forms were returned from the readers of the magazine. As a preliminary report for this meeting we have evaluated 530 forms to investigate the orgasmic behavior of educated Turkish women.

Results: Among the correspondents (530 of them have been assessed) the age groups were younger than 20 years old (19 %), 21-26 years old (39 %), 26-30 years old (20 %), 31-35 years old (9 %), older than 36 years old (13 %). The education level was very high, 62 % of the correspondents were university graduates or higher, 26 % were high school graduates, rest was less educated. 24 % of the correspondents were virgins, 36.6 % were single non-virgin, 27 % were married, 11.3 % were divorced, and rest had multiple marriages. Some of the interesting results were as follows: 1) Duration of coitus experienced: 14.9 % of the subjects had intercourse duration of less than 5 min.  41 % had intercourse duration of 5 to 15 min, 15.8 % had coitus duration of 15 to 30 min. 5 % had duration of more than 30 min. This result also reflects the sexual behavior patterns of Turkish males.   2) Percentages of experiencing orgasm: 22.8 % of the respondents had orgasms in every sexual activity. 26.9 % had orgasms in 8 sexual activities out of 10. 21.6 % reached orgasm in 50 % of their sexual activity. The rest were either unorgasmic or experienced orgasm in less than 1 intercourse out of 5.   3) During a sexual activity lasting for an hour the maximum number of orgasms experienced were: 39 % only one, 54.7 %  2 to 5 times, 8.8 % 6-10 times, 1.7 % 11-20 times. The rest of the group experienced status orgasmus. 4) Vaginal-Clitoral Controversy: 15 % of the respondents stated that they experienced vaginal orgasm in every intercourse; 64.8 % of them needed only clitoral stimulation or both. This finding is striking compared to Redbook, Hite, Cosmo and Kinsey Reports among American women which had found that nearly 30 % of the women could only achieve orgasm through sexual intercourse while 70 % needed clitoral stimulation.

Conclusion: Near to other findings above results state that educated Turkish women have an interesting sexual liberation similar to Western women. The data among other women from different social classes was not available; this data shows that educated Turkish women have a healthy sexual activity where they could attain sexual satisfaction.

Sexual Behavior in Educated Turkish Women

*Umit Sayin, Neylan Ziyalar and Ipek Kahya, Istanbul University, Institute of Forensic Sciences 34303 Cerrahpasa, Istanbul, Turkey.

 

Rationale: The aim of this study was to investigate the sexual behavior of educated Turkish women by means of a survey submitted to an activist women’s magazine.

Methods: A survey of 59 questions were delivered for 8 months in a feminist women’s magazine, of which readers were mostly educated and activist women similar to the subject groups of Shere Hite (Hite Report) and Linda Wolfe (Cosmo Report). During this time, 1650 completed questionnaire forms were returned from the readers of the magazine. As a preliminary report for this meeting we have evaluated the first 530 forms to investigate the sexual behavior of educated Turkish women.

Results: Among the correspondents (530 of them have been assessed) the age groups were younger than 20 years old (19 %), 21-26 years old (39 %), 26-30 years old (20 %), 31-35 years old (9 %), older than 36 years old (13 %). The education level was very high, 62 % of the correspondents were university graduates or higher, 26 % were high school graduates, rest was less educated. 24 % of the correspondents were virgins, 36.6 % were single non-virgin, 27 % were married, 11.3 % were divorced, and rest had multiple marriages. Some of the interesting findings were as follows: 1) the age of first sexual activity: 7 % (younger than 15 years old), 52 % (between 15 and 20 years old), and 33 % (between 20 and 25 years old), and 4 % (between 25 and 30 years old), rest (older than 30 years old) experienced the first sexual encounter. 2) First partner: 22.2 % was husband, 8 % was fiancé, 42 % long term boy friend, 21 % short term boy friend, and the rest was a one night stand or a random person. 3)The number of sexual partners: 28 % had just one partner, 43 % had 2 to 5 partners, 16 % had 6 to 10 partners, 10.3 % had more than 11 partners. The rest had none. 4) The sexual variations experienced sometimes other than coitus (multiple answer questions): 63 % performed fellatio, 68 % performed cunnilingus, 19 % performed sodomy, 50 % used lingerie as a stimulating object, and 10 % experienced sadomasochistic variations. 5) Masturbation frequency: 36 % of the correspondents never experienced masturbation. 4.5 % masturbated at least once a day. 12.8 % performed masturbation if they did not attain orgasm during the sexual intercourse. While 12.8 % preferred to experience masturbation 3 to 5 times a week, the rest did 3 to 5 times a month. 6) Birth control methods: 7.3 % of the subjects used birth control pills, 14.9 % used intra uterine device (IUD), 16.6 % of them preferred to estimate the non-conception period. Condom was used in 15.4 % of the correspondent’s coitus. The rest (45.6 %) preferred coitus interraptus, a finding which may explain the high abortion rates among educated women in Turkey.   7) Liaison (having extramarital relationship): 60.7 % of the subjects were in favor of fidelity and had no liaisons, while strikingly 39.3 % had liaisons. 8) Sexual molestation and rape: 30 % of the subjects never experienced such an incident. Molestation and male aggressive behavior was experienced by 63.5 % of the women. Six percent of the correspondents were raped by either an unknown person or their partners. 9) Stimulating sexual object (multiple answer questions): According to 74.5 % of the subjects music was a sexual stimulant, while setting was important for 29.8 %. Odor or perfumes had an attractive influence in 66.2 % of the study group. Talking dirty (or sexy talk) had a stimulating effect in 23.5 % of the group. Most strikingly in 45 % of our group pornography had a very erotic and stimulating influence while Wolfe reported 21.5 % in Cosmo Report among 9949 American women.

Conclusion: Educated Turkish women have a liberated and healthy sexual response compared to the surveys published in USA or Europe. We were not able to assess other classes or groups in Turkish society, however in terms of sexual liberation and response educated Turkish women have similar sexual behavior patterns compared to Western women. Some very striking and unexpected results were concluded.
