A lot of women have done it. I’ll refrain from using the word “most.”
Through a range of reasons, women have faked orgasms. Men have too, but at a much less frequency. Interestingly enough, a study found that one in three men admit to faking orgasms. So, if you think your man is immune, perhaps think again. That might be a blog post for a different time.
Seven out of ten women admit to having faked an orgasm. Here are some reasons why.
It takes too long
When I read about this statistic, I scratched my head a little bit. You would think that long sex (or rather, men lasting long enough for long sex) would be the bee’s knees, but I can see where those women are coming from. If you’re not in the right mindset, it can seem a lot longer.
A new partner
Some women say they fake orgasms because their partner is new and they don’t know how to satisfy them yet. In my experience, men are fairly straightforward in this regard.
Too much drink
Another reason could be drinking too much. I’m sure you’ve heard of colorful terms of men who have difficulty with an erection after drinking too much. For women, it’s not quite that things don’t work down there, it’s just that certain sensations are dulled.
Sex is boring
Sorry guys, but sometimes sex with some of you is boring. I hate to break it to you. Women can and do think about things during sex. Mind wanderings. Things that don’t have to do with sex. Such as her grocery list and how she forgot to cancel her dental appointment.
She doesn’t want to hurt your feelings
In a way, these are beautiful intentions. She loves you, or at least likes to tolerate you, and she doesn’t want to hurt your feelings. Often times, men have a bit of an ego, and I’m sure you can imagine how that sort of frank conversation would go over. Perhaps honesty is the best policy, though, which I’ll leave you to consider.
Whether right or wrong, the most interesting statistic is that for both men and women, the likelihood of faked orgasms goes up in a long-term relationship. So try to change things up and keep the communication going. Good communication results in good lovemaking.
