Why Do Women Fake Orgasms? 10 Women Reveal Their Reasons

Did you know there's a day to celebrate the best thing in the universe? No, it's not love, you saps. I'm not talking about Valentine's Day.

No, I'm talking about orgasms. Orgasms are the best thing in the universe. And luckily for all of us, today happens to be National Orgasm Day.

Today is obviously a day for lots of sex. Unfortunately, for some women, having lots of sex can sometimes mean faking lots of orgasms. I have never had to fake orgasms, and for this, I am eternally grateful to the sex gods. I know, though, that plenty of women have had to fake it at one time or another because, well, sometimes you just can't get off.

In a super relatable Reddit thread, women were asked if they had ever faked an orgasm, and if so, why they did it.

Their reasons are sure to make you laugh, cry, empathize... and then, maybe go find a partner you can really celebrate National Orgasm Day with — without faking it.
