A new survey has revealed that over a quarter of women admit to faking orgasm every time they have sex.
The statistic was revealed in AskMen.com’s Great Male Survey 2012, which polled 50,000 people from across the U.S., the UK and Australia.
A rather luckier 30% of women surveyed said they never have to fake it. And they aren’t the only ones. Over a third of men admitted to having faked a climax at least once.
In fact, 40% of men said they were only “somewhat satisfied” with their sex lives but there was “room for improvement”, and an unfortunate 22% admitted: “I have no sex life.”
Twenty-five per cent of women were also “not at all satisfied, because of the quality of sex”, with 27% admitting to “no sex life”.
The survey results went beyond sex to reveal some interesting attitudes towards relationships.
Weight gain presented a major issue. While 67% of women said they would remain with their boyfriend if he became fatter, over half of men ruthlessly admitted they would not stay with their girlfriends if they did the same.
Contrary to popular belief, it found that 44% of women believed in marriage, compared with 70% of men.
Demonstrating further female cynicism, a third of women admitted to having read their boyfriend’s emails or text messages as a means of “checking up” on their man.
Women also have little trust when it comes to birth control. Though 73% of men polled said they would take a male pill if it existed, just over half of women would actually trust a man to remember to take it.
But perhaps their general lack of trust in men is justified. Over half of men say they have lied about their number of sexual partners.
And if they could choose a celebrity their current girlfriend could “be more like”, the majority of men chose Spider-Man star Emma Stone, with just 20% suggesting Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton.
