67% of Women, 28% of Men Fake Orgasms, But for Different Reasons

According to a new study coming out of the University of Kansas, 28 percent of men and 67 percent of women fake orgasms, but they fake it for different reasons.

Researchers studied the sex lives of 281 undergraduates (180 men and 101 women) and found men and women fake orgasms depending on the scenario.

 

“Men were more likely to fake it when they

were feeling bored or wanted sex to end.”

Both men and women are most likely to fake it within the context of a committed relationship (78 percent of women/53 percent of men).

However, men were much more likely to fake orgasms when dating (16 percent of men/2 percent women), hooking up (16 percent of men/10 percent of women) or with someone they just met (7 percent of men/0 percent of women).

Men were more likely to fake orgasms when they were feeling bored or just wanted the sex to end, while women were most likely to fake it to spare their partner’s feelings.
