Female Orgasm Research Institute

The Female Orgasm Research Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to identifying proven pathways to female orgasm. We conduct female orgasm research and provide facts and resources to reduce the persistently high percentage of women who experience orgasm difficulty or who have never orgasmed in their lives. The percentage of women suffering from orgasm difficulty has not changed in 50 years (Kontula & Miettinen, 2016) despite improvements in sex education, gender equality and sex therapy. Whether one looks at studies in Finland, Australia, the USA, or Iran, one can find the prevalence of female orgasm difficulty world-wide.

The Female Orgasm Research Institute is building an extensive collection of female orgasm research to be found in one on-line location. By bringing the research into one online portal, we will better be able to see what research has been conducted and what additional research is needed.

We advocate for controversial treatments such as LSD therapy that was scientifically proven in the 1960s to be an effective treatment for women who experienced difficulty orgasming. Anecdotal research points to cannabis helping women orgasm who suffer from difficulty orgasming or who have never orgasmed. The Female Orgasm Research Institute educates government agencies for public policy re-form and advocates for women’s rights to scientific progress.
