A Gender and Sexual Health Initiative study at the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS found that 13.7% of B.C. women were unsatisfied versus just 10.1% of men, using data collected from more than 12,000 B.C. residents in the 2011-12 Canadian Community Health Survey.

"I cannot say I was surprised," said Dr. Eugenia Socias, one of the study's authors. "But i think it's a highly relevant finding from a policy perspective."
