The ability of a woman to enjoy sex to the full has more to do with her genes than her partner, according to a study indicating that the female orgasm has a strong genetic basis. For the first time scientists have been able to tease out the role that genes may play in determining how easy it is for a woman to reach a climax during sex. Researchers found that the ability to achieve orgasm varies widely between women and that between 34 and 45 per cent of this variation is due to genetics rather than other factors such as culture, upbringing or religious beliefs. Professor Tim Spector of St Thomas' Hospital in London, who led the research, said the findings may help to explain why one in three women says she achieves orgasm either rarely or not at all with her partner. There is something biological that's determining some of this large variation between women and if something is heritable it is unlikely to be by chance. Previous surveys of sexual behaviour have shown that women are far less likely to have an orgasm than men during sex and that they take longer to reach a climax when they do have an orgasm.
