Why Women Fake Orgasm

Fake OrgasmIt is news that will undoubtedly be met with great scepticism by the fairer sex. But scientists claim the real reason why women fake orgasms in bed is because they are riddled with insecurities and have a fear of intimacy.

While 60 per cent of women claim to have faked ecstasy during intercourse or oral sex, researchers believe this has little to do with protecting their partner's sensitive feelings.

Instead, according to a study, many girls pretend to climax due to their own fear of intimacy; or because they feel insecure about how their bodies react during intercourse; or simply because they want it to end as soon as possible.

Lead researcher Erin Cooper, of Temple University in Pennsylvania, told LiveScience: 'This is something that we talk about happening in popular culture, in the movies and magazines.

'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.'

She interviewed 366 women aged between 18 to 32, all of whom readily admitted to faking orgasms. The volunteers were asked to explain the reasons why they pretended to orgasm and how they felt about sexual intimacy.
