Why Do I Need Clitoral Stimulation?

Q: Am I unusual or what? I seem to be the only woman I know who needs direct clitoral stimulation in order to have an orgasm.

A: According to studies published in the Kinsey Institute Report, it was reported that almost all women, unlike men, need direct or indirect clitoral stimulation in order to climax. Very few lucky women—about five percent—say they can climax through penetration alone, by having their breasts played with, crossing their legs and squeezing their thighs, or even by fantasizing. So you see, you're experience is the norm.

In addition, the Kinsey Institute reported that it takes a man, on average, only three minutes to climax while women peak after 15 long minutes! The difference is based on simple anatomy. Imagine how much faster it would be for a woman to climax if her clitoris received as much direct stimulation during sex as a man's penis? Some things just aren't fair and this is one of them.
