LONDON — When talking about troubling sexual encounters some women mention faking sexual pleasure to speed up their male partner’s orgasm and ultimately end sex that they do not enjoy.

“While some women spoke about faking orgasm in positive ways, for example, as a pleasurable experience that heightened their own arousal, many talked about feigning pleasure in the context of unwanted and unpleasurable sexual experiences,” said one of the researchers Emily Thomas from Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada.

For the study, the researchers interviewed a small group of women (aged 19 -28) who had been sexually active for at least one year.

“Within these accounts, we were struck by the degree to which women were connecting the practice of faking orgasm to accounts of unwanted sex,” Thomas noted.

Analysis showed that the women never used terms such as rape and coercion to refer to their own experiences – despite their descriptions of events that could be categorised as such.

Instead, women described their experiences of unwanted sex in indirect ways. For example, women used the term ‘bad’ to describe sex that was both unwanted and unpleasurable.

Interviews were analysed to explore how these women negotiate and account for experiences of problem sex in the context of exaggerating sexual pleasure and faking orgasm.

Instead, women described their experiences of unwanted sex in indirect ways. For example, women used the term ‘bad’ to describe sex that was both unwanted and unpleasurable.

The women spoke of faking orgasm as a means to ending these troubling sexual encounters.

In other words, faking orgasm provided a solution for ending sex where, culturally, not many options are available.

The findings were presented at the British Psychological Society’s Psychology of Women annual conference in Windsor, Berkshire, Britain.
