Have You Ever Faked an Orgasm?

I remember talking to a friend of mine years ago who told me that she'd never had an orgasm with a man — but that she almost always faked it.

It really surprised me because she seemed otherwise like a take-charge kind of woman — confident, beautiful, and certainly not shy. I didn't understand why she'd feel the pressure! (She was an actress, though, so I guess that kind of makes sense.)

Most of us are not actresses, or not good ones anyway, and it doesn't make a lot of sense to me to pretend your significant other is doing something right if he's not. Isn't faking something you'd just have to keep doing? And then if you stopped, he'd wonder why whatever he was doing before no longer worked?

I have a few times. When I just wasn't into the sex, I would fake it to get the guy to orgasm faster. Fake moaning a and yelling did the trick. In the past, Some of the guys were just bad in bed. I don't do it anymore though. If I can't enjoy the sex I just won't have it with my fiance or we try other things or positions. It happens to everyone.

I can't manage deception during intimacy so I couldn't ever do that.

Yeah, b/c sometimes there is just literally nothing the guy can do if I'm not in the mood. It's just not going to happen. It's impossible....and yet, the guy keeps trying even when you tell him, "really, it's just not going to happen tonight honey". So after telling him the truth doesn't work, yes I will fake it so he will leave me alone, like he should have when I told him the truth the first time. At least, I haven't met a guy who can make if happen if I'm totally not in the mood. So for now, yeah, if they don't take my word that it's not going to happen, I will fake it.

I have faked orgasms in the past but never again. Now, I have a partner who can actually tell the difference. Faking it doesn't make him or me feel good. Faking it also doesn't help us maintain the trust we've built or the intimacy of the moment.

Guys need to step up their game on what their doing.

Never. If they're screwing it up, they need to know.

I didn't really fake anything, the guy just didn't notice I wasn't really enjoying myself :oy: Good bye and good riddance to that one.

I have when the guy is insistent on getting me to have one before he does and I'm no longer in the mood and would rather not have him try at it all day.

No. Why would you do that? I don't think it's that important.

My wife has gone from not caring about my needs to feeling "obligated" to see that I have an "O," whether it's going to happen or not, since sometimes she's "in the mood" when I'm not. Even on those occasions when she *is* doing what I like... So faking it lets her off the hook gently, without making her feel like she's done anything wrong.

I did sometimes in college until I was dating a guy who thought I LIKED what he was doing when I would make it up. somehow a lightbulb went off and I haven't faked since. then again, I am very much in tune with what I like and what my needs are so usually I do (especially now with my boyfriend of a LONG time... we have taken the time to really figure each other out and explore and learn so its very very fun)
