Is it ever OK for women to fake orgasms?
New research reveals a surprising new reason why women are faking it? Marie Claire investigates...
Have you ever faked an orgasm? Come on, ladies, be honest now… A staggering 60 per cent of women claim to have faked orgasms during sex or oral sex, but what are the real reasons behind it, and what does it say about your relationship?
New research conducted by scientists at Temple University in Pennsylvania has revealed that the reason behind women feigning orgasms has little to do with protecting their partner’s ego.
In fact, scientists claim the real reason for it is down to women’s own insecurities. It is thought that the fear of intimacy, or the insecurity over how their bodies react during sex, have caused women to fake it.
Erin Cooper, lead researcher in the investigation, revealed to LiveScience: ‘We know that this is pretty prevalent in our culture, but we don’t know much about it from a scientific standpoint. That to me is a real catastrophe.’
During her experiment, Cooper interviewed 366 women between the ages of 18 to 32 who had admitted to regularly faking it.
The volunteers were questioned about their sexual habits, why they pretended to climax and also how they felt about sexual intimacy.
The reasons were split. While some said they were faking on a regular basis because they felt disconnected from their partner, others explained they were doing it to cover up their embarrassment at not being able to derive pleasure from sex.
