Almost seven out of ten women have faked an orgasm – and nearly a third of men, too, according to new study.
It found that 68% of women and 28% of men have pretended to climax with a partner.
Half the women surveyed (54%) said they had faked it because the sex was taking too long and they didn’t want to hurt their partner’s feelings.
Other reasons women gave for pretending were they found sex boring (37%), not in the mood (36%),  too tired (35%),  they had drunk too much alcohol (28%), their partner was new and could not satisfy them (16%), they struggle to climax through intercourse (15%).
Sparing a partner’s feeling was the main reason men fake it – chosen by 22% of those questioned, followed by too much alcohol (20%).
One in ten men said they had faked an orgasm during a one-night stand after realising they had made a mistake.
The results come from a new poll of 1,000 people by IllicitEncounters.com, Britain’s leading dating website for married people.
It found that women were eight times more likely to fake an orgasm with their husband or long-term partner than with a new lover or someone with whom they were cheating.
Men were three times more likely to pretend with their wife or long-term partner than with someone they had just started dating or having an affair with.
Half the women questioned (54%) said they saw nothing wrong in faking a climax because to reveal the truth would cause more harm.
Fewer men (36%) saw nothing wrong in faking it.
Four out of ten women (42%) said that it was ‘easy’ to fool men into thinking they have climaxed.
Only 12% of men said they would find faking it ‘easy’.
Actress Megan Ryan is probably responsible for the most famous faked female orgasm in movies in the scene in Where Harry Met Sally where she
explained how easily women can fool men by faking an orgasm while eating in a busy diner.
IllicitEncounters.com spokesman Christian Grant said: “It is very clear from these findings that there are a lot of women having rubbish sex with their husbands and long-term boyfriends and faking it to spare their feelings.
“It is easier to do that than confront the deeper problems in a relationship.
“Perhaps what is more surprising is how many men are faking it, too – largely for the same reasons as women. They put on an act because their marriage or long-term relationship is stale  and they are going through the motions when it comes to sex.
“All IllicitEncounters.com research shows that couples enjoy their best sex right at the start of a relationship when things are still fresh and you are both excited to be trying something new.”
IllicitEncounters.com has more than one million members in the UK.
Male members are mostly white collar professionals – earning an average of £54,000 a year.
Women tend to be younger than male members and they date more frequently – averaging three dates a month to men’s two.
