This Is How Many Women Orgasm From Masturbating

Masturbation is healthy and incredibly pleasurable, and sometimes it's the preferred method for getting off for the simple fact that you know what you like, and you can get things done efficiently. But how many women orgasm from masturbating? The answer, according to very recent research by CAM4 of over 8,000 women worldwide, is staggering — in a good way. The survey found that 95 percent of American women have achieved orgasm when masturbating. The study then asked those women about how easy it is to reach orgasm — Easy? Difficult? Somewhat difficult? And Americans aren’t the only ones reaping the benefits of solo sex. The study also looked at women reaching orgasms via masturbation worldwide, and it's clear women all over the world have effectively taken matters into their own hands (and vibrators).

Conversely, a very small percentage of women don’t come at all when masturbating; a mere 5 percent of American women have never orgasmed when trying to masturbate.

The women most likely to never orgasm from masturbation were the French, with as many as 15 percent of women never orgasming when taking a trip downtown. But that’s not all, CAM4 has done a lot more research into the subject, and here are the results about how often women who reach orgasm without difficulty are getting off from masturbation:
