“While we found that most men and women felt neutral about pulling a fake orgasm on their partner, men were more likely to feel ashamed when it came to faking.
A quarter of women who faked an orgasm told us they were grateful they could, but only 7 percent told us they felt annoyed they had to. Fewer women also told us they felt guilty or ashamed when they just couldn’t reach their climax at the end of a sexual encounter.
Men, however, were less inclined to acknowledge feeling grateful and more likely to express guilt, shame, or just plain annoyance. While women may have pop culture on their side when it comes to a faux climax, men are more inclined to the prescribed rules and expectations of their gender where sexual performance is concerned, making it hard to feel comfortable when they’re faking it.”
