According to the study, the main reason behind faking an orgasm is to provide pleasure and confidence to the partner.
The survey, conducted by Victoria Milan - a world leading dating website – shockingly revealed that more than 73% of women fake orgasms while having sex with their partners.
Out of this, a staggering 68% - that’s almost 7 out of every 10 women polled – say they usually enjoy the moment they decide to fake their orgasm.
25% said faking an orgasm is not an enjoyable moment, and 7% get satisfaction out of their moment of fake pleasure every single time.
According to the study, the main reason behind faking an orgasm is to provide pleasure and confidence to the partner, with more than 62% of women agreeing this is why they perform in the bedroom.
9% claim they have a mini-orgasm when pretending to actually have one, and 8% say it’s to arouse their partner and keep the mattress marathon going for longer.
Just 10% of women use a fake orgasm to end the sex, and only 6% say they fake it because a real orgasm is impossible for them to achieve.
43% of women fake their orgasm every single time they’re in the act, while 2 out of every 10 women say it’s only every so often they decide to act out their orgasm.
Just 1 in every ten women surveyed say they’ll indulge in a fake orgasm as frequently as once a week.
The majority of women are confident in their acting abilities, with 39% saying their partner has no idea they are faking their orgasms.
Founder and CEO of Victoria Milan, Sigurd Vedal, said the results showed that women are naturally generous lovers, who take pleasure even when faking it.
“Women have been faking orgasms for centuries, and now we have revealed why – and it’s not what people typically suspect: to end the sex. Certainly, women perform fake orgasms to encourage their partners, but they also get pleasure from the theatre and the attention a fake orgasm brings them,” Mr Vedal said.
