The truth is, only 56 percent of women report orgasming from intercourse alone, a study from Sweden found. Instead, females tend to rate intercourse as more pleasurable based on the strength of the bond they felt with their partner—not by the strength of their orgasm, says Herbenick. After all, climaxing feels amazing, and you want her to experience that, too. But the very question shifts the focus from the enjoyment of the entire act to one pivotal moment, says Herbenick. Seventy-five percent of women admit to faking an orgasm at least once, a study from Arizona State University found—and many said they did so for that very reason.
