According to the National Survey of Sex and Behaviour 91% of men reach the big-O while having sex compared to just 64% of women.
However, your ideas around male and female orgasms are about to be skewed by the results of a shocking new sex study.
The survey of 3,000 people by Ann Summers found that a whopping 26% of men are faking it.
So why are men faking a climax during sex?
Well, 35% revealed it was due to being too tired and 40% admitted to faking to avoid hurting their partner’s feelings.
The results also revealed that a massive 93% of women have faked an orgasm more than once in their lives.
With National Orgasm Day taking place on Monday July 31, both men and women are being encouraged to be more honest about climaxing and sex in general.
“Climaxing often requires paying attention to the body and the brain.
“The first step to letting a climax happen is to open your mind to it being a possibility. Believe it, and you’re more likely to achieve it.”
The key is to hold off your ejaculatory orgasm for as long as possible.
Before a man reaches the point of no return, he can train himself to experience all the sensations of an orgasm without physically ejaculating.
Firstly, you have to be sexually self-aware and in tune with your level of arousal.
Once you know how to bring yourself close to the big-O it’s possible to feel some of the involuntary contractions of orgasm without fully climaxing.
These pleasurable contractions can occur over and over continuously until you eventually ejaculate.
