They begin to have sex. It starts slowly and then both the man and woman quickly become excited. But almost as soon as the intercourse starts and the man looks as if he’s about to reach a climax, the woman starts to writhe and moan as she fakes one of the greatest orgasms in the history of humankind, then relaxes and turns away. If the man has finished, all the better. If the man is perplexed, his excitement and yearning hanging in midair, she says, “Don’t worry, I’ll finish you by hand.”
The fact that some women fake orgasms has been well known for a long time. However, up until now many experts thought that women did so to please their partners and make them think they were enjoying the experience. A recent study has come to a surprisingly different take on this age-old phenomenon.
