That most women have faked an orgasm at one point or another — either out of laziness or because of (how does one put this?) an overly considerate partner’s persistence — is old news.
Remember Meg Ryan in her famous orgasm-faking scene from the movie When Harry Met Sally. But that was back in 1989, before online pornography went mainstream.
Nowadays it’s much easier for ladies to learn proper orgasm-faking techniques from those who do it for a living: female porn stars.
Surprisingly enough, men must have learned a few tricks in this arena over the years, too.
According to a study conducted in the Czech Republic— which is, consequently, one of the world’s most prominent porn production hubs — women aren’t the only ones who resort to the practice.
Based on the nationwide study of sexual behavior conducted by the research agency STEM/MARK, 64 percent of Czech women say they have faked an orgasm at least once, with 15 percent admitting they do it regularly.
What’s perhaps more interesting is that 20 percent of Czech men also claim they have faked an orgasm.
I have so many questions about that, I don’t even know where to start.
How on Earth does a man fake an orgasm, unless he is a tantric yogi?
And how does the partner not notice?
Are we to assume that 20 percent of Czech women are asleep or drunk during intercourse?
And why do men fake it? To see if they can get away with it or to please their partner?
Upon intense questioning on this subject, one of my Czech friends admitted he has faked it “maybe once or twice.”
In his defense, he claimed he was somewhat drunk and incredibly tired and wanted to go to sleep, but his girlfriend “insisted” they must get intimate.
So he gave in. The abuse Czech men are subjected to is truly heartbreaking.
This orgasm-faking trend also sheds a new light on the ever-decreasing fertility rates in Eastern Europe.
It’s not that men are shooting blanks.
Some, apparently, are simply not shooting.
