Why do women (and some men) fake orgasm? In general, there are two reasons: They do it when sex has gone on too long and/or no orgasm is imminent. Also, women and men who feel inadequate because they cannot orgasm, often fake climax in order to fit in. On both cases, there's a common denominator: It's a lie.
In reality, there is no excuse for faking an orgasm. It only serves to propagate an unhealthy sexual relationship. Sex is a form of communication, and further, a healthy sex life needs communication. Ask yourself: Will the world end if you simply tell your lover that you don't think you'll have an orgasm this time? And if you've never had one, wouldn't you like to? Your lover is your partner. S/he wants you to experience pleasure. And if that isn't the case, do you really want to be with him/her in the first place?
Orgasms can be a tricky subject to broach, but take the leap. Talking to your lover respectfully and honestly is the key to a long and happy sex life.
