Exploring Women’s Sexual Pleasure Deficit

Project description

Why women have a sexual pleasure deficit

Sexual pleasure is an innate component of human sexuality. Throughout history, women's sexuality has been largely neglected. What is more, surveys suggest that women have less pleasurable sexual experiences than men. The EU-funded PleasDef project aims to understand how to reduce the pleasure gap by exploring the concept of entitlement to pleasure. As men possess more power in society, research shows that men feel more entitled to privileges than women. An additional research goal of the project aims to challenge the pleasure deficit for the first time through an intervention that strives to enhance women’s sexual health.
