If you’re a man who’s had sex with at least 10 women, chances are one of them has faked an orgasm with you. But how do you know when she’s faking it? Here are some sure-fire signs to indicate she’s a faker…

Women fake orgasms for an abundance of reasons. Many are unable to have orgasms via sex alone and require a lot of foreplay. Others may not be able to climax full stop. Some women require a certain level of intimacy before they’re able to physically and mentally let go during sex. But I believe the reason most women fake an orgasm is to make their sexual partner feel good about themselves — this is the kinder alternative to telling him he’s a dud.

SHE’S MOANING LIKE A PORN STAR WHO HATES HER JOB

We all watch porn but only some of us admit it. One can tell when a porn actress loves her job — her orgasms are real and her screams are authentic. On the other hand, there are porn actresses who look like they’d rather be doing something else — their moans are laughably-fake, loud and unbelievable. If her moans sound like a performance, then chances are she’s faking it.

CAN YOU FEEL HER CONTRACTIONS?

When women orgasm, their pelvic floor muscles contract. Many men can feel a woman’s orgasmic contractions on their penis — other men can’t. Either way, it’s a worthy fact to be aware of the next time you’re jackhammering away.

ZERO FOREPLAY

First question? Why haven’t you gone down on her before sex? No wonder she’s faking an orgasm with you! The majority of women throughout the world require clitoral or g-spot stimulation to have an orgasm. Use your fingers. Use your tongue. Only then does one move onto the main course.

CHANGES IN BREATHING

When a woman orgasms her breathing becomes deeper, faster and more intense as she rides the waves of erotic pleasure. If her breathing hasn’t changed, she’s definitely a ‘Big O’ faker.

WET WET WET

Is she soaked down there? When I orgasm I flood like a mofo. Most women do. When a woman orgasms authentically, her vagina will be wet wet wet.

THERE IS NO ALTERED STATE

After a woman has climaxed she will be tingly, giggly and euphoric. Often she won’t like to be touched and will need a few minutes to compose herself and recover. If she says she’s had an orgasm and yet there is no recovery time after the event, she’s probably faked it.

Look, I’m not a fan of women faking orgasms but in saying that, I understand why they do. I believe the best bet for all parties involved is communication. As a guy, allow her to feel comfortable enough to tell you what she needs. Better yet, just ask her and break the ice. Talking about ‘sexual pleasure’ openly with your partner is the easiest way to put a stop to her fakery. And who knows? The chat could possibly lead to more explosive sex sessions.
