New research on why women fake orgasms

No woman has ever faked an orgasm with me. I am 100% certain about this. Really. You believe me, don’t you?

No woman has ever faked an orgasm with me. I am 100% certain about this. Really. You believe me, don’t you?

According to scientists who like to study such things, at least half of you have done the When Harry Met Sally routine in bed. And a brand new research study of young women (average age of 22) explains that they may be doing it to prevent a man from straying.

The study explains that faking it is a way for these women to stake their claim on a man: those women who were more concerned about a man cheating on her were more likely to fake orgasms.

I’ve got some better advice. If you think a guy is cheating on you, don’t fake your orgasms, GET OUT OF THE RELATIONSHIP! I understand some women may want to fake it so they can just go to sleep already or not bruise his male ego (those things are sensitive, you know), but I really don’t endorse this kind of behaviour.

This isn’t anything personal; I’m just looking at the logic of it. That logic makes me ask the question: What if he finds out?

I know I’d be super upset. There would be a loss of trust and I’d start to question everything else about the relationship. What’s more, I think guys are actually eager to learn new stuff in the bedroom. If he’s not up to snuff and not doing it for you, take it as opportunity to teach him what does work, rather than give him top grades for a mediocre performance. Such an approach isn’t the path of least resistance, but I’d argue the effort would be worth it.

Do you think it’s healthier for a relationship to fake it or just be honest? Please share your thoughts here.
