Women Who Fake Orgasms are “More Likely to Cheat on Their Partner”

Via Daily Mail UK, “As Meg Ryan demonstrated in ‘When Harry Met  Sally…’ some women are very good at faking orgasms.

But new research suggests that faking  satisfaction is not good for relationships – for a variety of  reasons.

A study found women who fake orgasms are more  likely to cheat on their partners.

It also revealed women fake an orgasm in  almost a fifth of their sexual encounters in an attempt to spare their partners’  feelings.

The researchers interviewed  138 female students and 121 male students all of whom were in  relationships.

They wanted to discover whether people who  are sexually happy in their relationship are more likely to stay  faithful.

The students interviewed had sex on average  three times a week and the women orgasmed 61 per cent of the time, while the men  orgasmed during 70 per cent of their sexual encounters.

The scientists established women fake orgasms  far more often than men do – they do so 18 per cent of the times they have sex  while men only fake it in one in 20 times.

Almost one in six of the women questioned  admitted they had cheated on their partner.

The figure was even higher for men, with more  than a quarter – 26 per cent – admitting being unfaithful.

Researchers found men and women who faked  orgasms were far more likely to be unfaithful.

Orgasm frequency, on the other hand, had no  impact on infidelity.

The women who had the most orgasms cheated no  less or more than women whose climaxes were more hit and miss.

It also found that men were more likely to  stay with a partner who orgasmed consistently.

Dr Justin Lehmiller, a psychologist from  Harvard University who analysed the findings, said: ‘The more orgasms a woman  had faked, the more likely she was to have cheated previously and the greater  her likelihood of cheating again.

‘Fake orgasms say a lot more about a woman’s  odds of staying faithful than actual orgasms.’

The new findings follow British research from  sex toy firm Lovehoney which showed 68 per cent of women had admitted faking an  orgasm, as had 28 per cent of men.

Sex and relationship expert Tracey Cox said  the majority of women have faked orgasm at some point in their lives because of  the difficulty of climaxing purely through penetrative sex.

She said: ‘One theory might be that since women  fake it more often than men do, perhaps they feel obliged to provide “evidence”  that they’re enjoying themselves?’”

What do you think of this finding?
