  • Jane's body of work includes the following evidence for her conclusions:

    • Presenting evolutionary precedents
    • Contrasting sexual behaviours according to sex & orientation
    • Explaining how orgasm is achieved regardless of sex & orientation
    • Interpreting the research findings
    • Demonstrating that no one can explain porno orgasms.

    Note: Porno orgasms are those women are portrayed as having with a lover in erotic fiction & pornography (but that are unsupported by any facts, logic or research findings).
