Guys Fake Orgasms Too!

I've asked you in the past whether or not you think it's OK for a woman to fake an orgasm, and the results were split. Some of you said you had no need to fake it (lucky!), while others owned up to doing it occasionally just to give your man an ego-boost, or so you could get some sleep.
