A similar number of women and men say that they have had orgasms over the last year.
Fisher discusses with Nick Gillespie the transition to “slow love” as a result of the era of dating apps. The relief many men feel about not being sole breadwinners, and the reasons why increasing sexual options are not only libertarian but libertine.
