Perhaps, due to the fact that it is often elusive for a lot of women, faking an orgasm is actually a common sexual issue.

Depending on the woman, there are a few reasons why some will choose to pretend to have an orgasm, when in actuality, they did not.

According to some studies, however, these are the four basic reasons women fake it.

1. Bad Sex

A lot of women have admitted to faking their orgasm to speed up their male partner's orgasm and ultimately end sex that they do not enjoy. According to recent studies, women described their experiences of unwanted sex in indirect ways. For example, women used the term 'bad' to describe sex that was both unwanted and unpleasurable. They spoke of faking orgasm as a means to ending these troubling sexual encounters.

2. Making him happy

Another reason why women might fake it is to impress their partners. A recently conducted study claimed that women faked an orgasm so as to not hurt their partner's feelings. 70 per cent admitted to doing so. Researchers questioned 281 male and female students about their sexual habits. The report claimed that the emphasis on men’s ability to give their partners “earth-shaking orgasms” sometimes lead both the sexes to pretend orgasm to meet these expectations.

3. Insecurity

Scientists have discovered another crucial reason why women pretend to have a sexual climax in bed - they are riddled with insecurities and have a fear of intimacy. While 60 percent of women claim to have faked ecstasy during intercourse or oral sex, researchers believe this has little to do with protecting their partner's sensitive feelings. Instead, according to a study, many women pretend to climax due to their own fear of intimacy; or because they feel insecure about how their bodies react during intercourse.

4. Not in the mood

In a recently conducted survey, 26 women admitted to faking orgasms every time they have sex. They admitted that they were also “not at all satisfied, because of the quality of sex”, with 27 percent admitting to “no sex life”.
