Why do women talk and make noises during sex?


” The studies revealed that orgasm was most frequently reported by women following self-manipulation of the clitoris, manipulation by the partner, oral sex delivered to the woman by a man, and least frequently during vaginal penetration.

More detailed examination of responses during intercourse revealed that, while female orgasms were most commonly experienced during foreplay, copulatory vocalizations were reported to be made most often before and simultaneously with male ejaculation.

These data together clearly demonstrate a dissociation of the timing of women experiencing orgasm and making copulatory vocalizations and indicate that there is at least an element of these responses that are under conscious control, providing women with an opportunity to manipulate male behavior to their advantage. “


It is interesting to see more information coming out on how men and women really behave in intimate situations, that is not reflected through the lens of gender politics or the tropes of masculine or feminine pornography.

Two interesting observations in this study are that the majority of women are willing to stay with a man who, while otherwise satisfactory, does not induce them to have orgasms during sex. And that women often use encouraging comments during sex to enhance their man’s self-esteem and strengthen the pair bond.

    It might be something learned and, while primal, still social, a form of welcoming. While it is not directly parallel, it is easily observed, dogs have greeting rituals for their pet humans.

      I guess what the authors are saying is that “vocalising” (which seems to mean everything from moaning to talking quite coherently) is not associated with orgasm in women. In other words, it is under conscious control. Some women have written that they become “brainless” during sex or that they feel like someone is stirring their brain with a finger; but that hyperbole aside, women are clearly able to communicate quite cogently during sex. For example, to speed things up, or to make a man feel flattered … or both.

    “making copulatory vocalizations”

    Such as “honey, don’t forget to pick up your suit from the cleaners on your way home from work tomorrow night”??

    The article refers to “copulatory vocalizations” as “responses” (to what?). I’m guessing they didn’t mean coherent conversation stuff.

      A tip for those whose women talk too much during sex. Try putting her right over the edge of the bed for rear entry. She will be busy catching her breath and staying in position, and not chatter so much.
