These are other reasons why women end up faking it:
You believe you need your happy endingWomen are conditioned to believe that they need to orgasm each time they have sex. Rather than lying there while he’s a few seconds away from ejaculating, you’d rather pretend like your mind is blown away as well.
You want to get it over and done withNothing ends sex like having a mutual orgasm. On those days when you’re tired, the last thing you want is be pounded for hours on end. So when you see him getting weak, you let out a moan that sounds as if you’re coming.
You don’t want to hurt his feelingsSometimes you really like the guy and the relationship is going so perfect that you don’t want to spoil everything. It will be difficult to keep this up because you do need your happy ending after all.
