Nearly half of Dutch women dont enjoy sex

Forty percent of Dutch women do not enjoy sex, a large-scale survey suggests, compared with 22 percent of men.

The survey, published on Friday, was conducted last year by sex research centre Rutgers WPF among more than 8,000 men and women. Just 22 percent of men say they don’t enjoy sex, most of them due to premature ejaculation and erection problems. Women tend to complain of a dry vagina or experience difficulties in reaching an orgasm.

More and more people also experience longer periods without sex, the survey revealed. Around 17 percent of men and 22 percent of women said they had had no sex in the preceding six months. In 2006, the figures still stood at 13 and 16 percent respectively.

Another surprising find was the surge in the number of women who do not use contraceptives. The figure rose from 31 percent in 2009 to 40 percent last year.

For the first time the survey included questions regarding transgender people, whose sexual identity often differs from the sex they were assigned at birth. Around 20 percent of respondents criticised transgenders, a lose category comprising people who variously identify themselves as heterosexual, homosexual, transsexual, bisexual, pansexual, polysexual or asexual.
