What a happy surprise! After just one week the post on Philica.com has broken into their top 15. Blogger Bill Lama has chosen the October 3 photo to illustrate The Female Brain. Thanks to physicist Katie Freese for snapping that photo. The number of women is science increases every day.
From the Toronto Globe and Mail: "According to new research, heterosexual women with post-secondary degrees are more likely to reach orgasm than their less-educated counterparts."
"There is also a higher incidence of orgasm in women who speak English at home, have a higher household income or hold a managerial or professional job, the Australian study found."
"The telephone survey was conducted by researchers from Sussex University in England and the universities of Sydney and Melbourne in Australia. More than 10,100 men and 9,100 women ages 16-59 across Australia participated in the survey."
From my experience, I can only support their findings. Go get those advanced degrees, ladies! At this week's conference, I hooked up with Gemma from University of Sydney, who was Tamara Davis' observing partner. Gemma's research is also fascinating and will be subject of an upcoming post.
