39-47 percent of women easily had orgasms during sex (as opposed to other sex acts) back in the 1950s. Modern figures are lower. There is no truth to the idea that sex was of much lower quality before the sexual revolution. Married people had sex more often, and the sex was not of low quality. But, a lot of people think that sex was terrible back before the sexual revolution.
Look at this topic on this forum:

Some people, including some red pill types, believe things like this about the past:
My older female relatives especially espoused this. They were from an era where sex was a duty and meant for the man's pleasure. Sex for them was a means to an end or something you did to keep the man providing your livelihood pleased so that you could... live.
Or:""I think up until the mid 20th century the majority of women viewed sex as an exchange for the "romance" and "provision" they got from their husbands.""
And I have read that pre-1960s sex was terrible other times. And been told that it was.Women would never have agreed to it if they weren't getting something good out of sex. And too often, women didn't, before the 60's. Women put up with sex to keep their husbands and to get children. Even then, many women refused sex most of the time, with husbands only getting quick duty sex once or twice a month. Husbands gave women bad sex because sex was thought to be all about men. No build up, no focus on the woman - all-in-all a pretty boring and often painful experience for a woman.
False stuff, but that is what a lot of people actually believe. And they don't have to be leftists to believe it. The main difference between sex within marriage now and sex before the "sexless marriages revolution" is that people had sex more often in the past.
What I wonder is: where did the idea that sex was terrible before the sixties originate? Obviously the idea that sex was terrible before the sixties is a very useful cultural myth for the left. It keeps people thinking of the past as the bad old days. Would we have anything to gain by getting rid of this myth? It was definitely used to help sell the sexual revolution.
