A Good Poop

In which I succinctly deflate the male ego

Wiederman MW. Pretending orgasm during sexual intercourse: correlates in a sample of young adult women. J Sex Marital Ther. 1997 Summer;23(2):131-9.

Here we go: “Overall, more than one-half of the women reported having pretended orgasm during sexual intercourse.”

Please discuss how this makes you feel.

    Well I kind of wish the last gal I was with did fake a few. She made it clear that nothing but her own hand could make her orgasm, kinda felt superfluous to even be in the room. The one before her couldn’t fake one to save her life. She had those whole body orgasms that lie somewhere between normal orgasms and a seizure.

    Think twice before faking an orgasm, ladies. The laugh track is the primary reason that most sitcoms are not funny.

    Aren’t women mostly hurting themselves when they do this? I mean, I think I get it, they’re trying to spare the guys feelings and/or they just want ‘it’ to be over. Nevertheless, this ultimately leads to a lack of satisfaction on her part. Seems like its better just to be honest and try to figure something out to improve your sex life.
    I guess its frustrating… but I hope ‘younger’ is the operative word in the title of the paper – it seems kind of immature to me.
    Oh well, no one has ever faked it with me anyway 😉

    I can’t find links to the full text of the articles after clicking on the links to the abstracts. Is there a way to read the full texts? (I just returned to school so my brain is a little slow on how to fanangle the databases!)

    Howdy folieadeux,

    Some of the articles aren’t readily available via PubMed, and I’ve neglected to find other links for them. Otherwise, you’ll need to be using a computer with a subscription to the journal the article is published in to access the full texts. If an article is available for free, I usually link directly to the full text. Hope that helps!

    The reason most women fake orgasms is that most men fake foreplay.

    But how many men fake orgasm with their wimmin?

    How do you know when you girlfriend has had an orgasm?

    we usually fake it for your pleasure and enjoyment. we know you like to please us, and we know you feel more aroused imagining that you are pleasing us. and sometimes it makes you cum faster so you will get off of us.

    And JD illustrates my point . . .
