Ladies, 60 percent of us are liars. As in, we're liars in the bedroom.
It doesn't come as much of a surprise to hear findings that say 60 percent of women fake orgasms. Nor is it shocking to hear the reasons why: we're tired; our guy is trying hard, so we want him to feel good; we just want sex to be over.
Again, no surprises there. But some men are speaking out against the fake orgasm, claiming, "Ladies faking orgasms perpetuates the idea that sex is for men and that their pleasure doesn't matter." Essentially, they believe that by faking our sexual climax, we're boosting the already-inflated male ego.
Are we just tools for the male orgasm? We'd like to think not. But in reality, faking it is a woman's choice to make. In an ideal world, two sexual partners would reach their climax at the same time, fall into a heavy, sweaty heap onto the bed, and cuddle until the sun rises or they're ready for round two.
But life isn't a movie or a romance novel. In most situations, men work hard to help a woman reach her climax. So, is it so wrong to fake an "oh!" face when we're ready to call it a night?
We're hurting ourselves just as much as we're hurting the man (hey, women need to climax, too!). It might be worse to say, "Alright partner, thanks for the effort, but I don't see it happening. No orgasm for me tonight."
Men don't need to be coddled, but they don't need to be defeated, either.
