Being a scientist seems like a thrilling job as you're tasked with providing answers to unresolved questions about the world. It can range from studying the planets above or discovering new animal species, or it could even be sampling Cara Delevingne's blood for an orgasm research.
In a report by Toronto Sun, the model and actress has agreed to give sample of her blood to researchers studying the "gender climax gap," which is a term coined to describe the disparity in orgasms between couples. Particularly, on why men are more likely to orgasm than women.
This is not a new problem that needs scientific attention, as various studies and surveys around the world have previously showed that women are often left unsatisfied with their sex lives and very rarely achive orgasm.
Delevigne revealed her participation in the research on her new documentary series Planet Sex with Cara Delevingne, which has her exploring the answers to intimate questions about sexuality, relationships, sex appeal, and the prevalence of pornography.
While visiting a hospital in Germany, Delevigne said, "I’m here to have an orgasm and donate it to science."
She went on to share how she thinks that female sexual desire has definitely been repressed even today.
"I know from my own love life just how sexual women can be so you’d think in the 21st century men and women should be having equally satisfying sex lives, right? Well, prepare for a shock. When it comes to the orgasm there is a definite gender gap," she said.
Citing data, she read about how 95 percent of straight men are able to climax during intercourse, but only 65 percent of straight women do. The 30-year-old model surmised that "lesbians and queer women definitely seem to have it better."
The scientists took samples of her blood before and after climaxing in order to analyze its effect on her body chemistry. The experiment measured in both stages the levels of endocannabinoids in the sample, which are chemicals that promote relaxation and amplify pleasure when engaging in sex.
The results will be explained in the six-part series, which will premiere soon on Nov. 29 on Hulu, as well as in BBC Three and BBC iPlayer.
