Women Resort To Feign Sexual Pleasure To End Unwanted Sex Sooner, According To Study

According to a new study, many women feign sexual pleasure in order to end bad or unwanted sex sooner.

Although the study had recruited women to speak about consensual sex, all of them explicitly spoke about problematic sexual experiences when asked about faking orgasms.

Researchers said they were “struck” by the number of women who reported faking orgasms due during unwanted sex.

Psychologist Emily Thomas explained

While some women spoke about faking orgasm in positive ways, for instance, as a pleasurable experience that heightened their own arousal, many talked about feigning pleasure in the context of unwanted and unpleasurable sexual experiences.

Within these accounts, we were struck by the degree to which women were connecting the practice of faking orgasm to accounts of unwanted sex.”

Analysis showed women did not use words such as “rape” or “coercion” when speaking about their experiences, though their descriptions of the events could be categorised as such.

Instead, the women were said to have described their sexual experiences as unwanted in more “indirect” ways, such as using the term “bad” to describe sexual encounters, which were both unwanted and unpleasurable.

Though faking orgasms is often seen as a joke, the study shows it is a complex phenomenon. Though it can be used as a useful coping strategy for women in unwanted sexual situations, the practice highlights the silencing of women who may want to reject sexual advances, but feel they can’t.

It suggests these women exist within a culture that discourages speaking up against unwanted sexual encounters, and where it may even be dangerous to do so.

It appears that faking orgasm is both problematic and helpful at the same time. On the one level faking an orgasm may be a useful strategy as it affords some control over ending a sexual encounter. We are not criticising faking practice on an individual level.

We want to focus on the problems with our current lack of available language to describe women’s experiences that acknowledges names and confronts the issues women spoke of in our interviews.”

New Study Says Lesbian And Gay Students Are More Likely to Get Pregnant (Confused?)

A new study has revealed that lesbian, gay and bisexual high school students have a higher rate of pregnancy than their heterosexual peers.

Confused? Keep reading.

Dr Lisa Lindley, a professor of global and community health at George Mason University, looked at the sexual orientation of 9,703 New York students – analysing their sexual identity and the gender of sexual partners.

The findings revealed that 23% of reported pregnancies were women who categorised themselves as lesbian, and 20% from those who identified as bisexual.


This is in comparison to a lesser pregnancy rate of 13% in females who identified as heterosexual but had slept with women, and 13% in those who had only ever slept with men.

The results were just as unexpected when it came to the guys.

The study revealed that 28% of gay and bisexual men had got girls pregnant, as had 37% of those who have sex with both men and women, with just 10% of straight men having got a girl pregnant.

According to Dr Lindley, what is key, is educating students of every sexual identity (especially the LGBT community) about birth control methods to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

Sexual orientation should be considered in future adolescent pregnancy-prevention efforts, including the design of pregnancy-prevention interventions.”

So what are the essential things you should know about your vagina.

The Female Orgasm, Explained with Science

The female orgasm has been subject to endless research, heated debates and plenty of myths.

Female Orgasm 01

Separating out fact from fiction while dishing up a refresher course, the team over at Wired has uploaded this video to YouTube, using clay models and chemical reactions to explain exactly goes down when a woman has an orgasm.

The vagina is not a passive organ but a highly dynamic structure with an active role in sexual arousal and intercourse. The anatomical relationships and dynamic interactions between the clitoris, urethra, and anterior vaginal wall have led to the concept of a clitourethrovaginal (CUV) complex, defining a variable, multifaceted morphofunctional area that, when properly stimulated during penetration, could induce orgasmic responses.”

Well duh…

More Sex, Means More Brain Power (So Science Says)

Do you want to keep your brain active as you get older? Then the answer is simple – have more sex.

As you get older, brain function starts to slow down. Your memory starts to fade, and you can’t remember things like you used to. It’s one of the biggest and scariest things about getting older because memory loss really erases a person’s identity.

Well, good news guys – a new study has found that a good way to fight memory loss is to have more sex. And to be fair, they do say the brain is a very important sexual organ, so that does make sense.

A study conducted by The Manchester University surveyed 1,700 people between the ages of 58 and 98. Turns out, the test subjects who were still sexually active also had better brain power. The study also found a third of women over the age of 70 are still getting it on.

This isn’t the first study that has shown sex keeps the brain healthy. A 2010 study found sexual activity promotes cell growth in the hippocampus, the area in the brain that controls long-term memory.

Breaking News: Vaginal Orgasms ‘Don’t Exist and The G-spot is a Myth’

There is no such thing as a vaginal or clitoral orgasm and the G-spot is a myth.

Well, that’s the conclusion of a group of researchers who want us to start coining the term ‘female orgasm’.

Why? Well, according to the team, it basically means the whole of a woman’s vagina needs to be stimulated effectively to create an orgasm – Dah! That includes the clitoris, the vestibular bulbs on either side of the vagina, and the pars intermedia – a band that joins the vestibular bulbs.

Their findings – published in the journal Clinical Anatomy – found that most women don’t have orgasms during penetrative sex.  And as a result, women have been labelled with sexual problems that are based on something that doesn’t exist: the vaginal orgasm.

The review did find that the clitoris is the key to all female orgasms, as the clitoris is a women most erogenous zone.

However, it is possible for ‘all’ women to orgasm if all their ‘female erectile’ organs (clitoris, vestibular bulbs, and pars intermedia) are effectively stimulated.

The review, comes after a U.S. study published earlier this year found that the size of a woman’s clitoris can impact their ability to have an orgasm.

In women who have orgasm problems, the clitoris is smaller and located farther from the vagina, the study found.

The researchers said their findings could lead to new treatments for women suffering from anorgasmia, who are unable to have orgasms.
