Women who fake orgasms 'more likely to cheat on their partners'

A new study claims that women who fake orgasms are more likely to cheat on their significant others.

According to the publication Archives of Sexual Behavior, researchers set out to prove a hypothesis that female orgasms represent a women's sexual satisfaction - and can therefore predict her chances of staying faithful to her partner.

They asked 138 females and 121 males currently in romantic relationships about their sexual encounters and behaviour between the sheets.

And while orgasm was not linked to female sexual fidelity, faked orgasms was another story.

The authors said faked orgasms were associated with female sexual infidelity and lower male relationship satisfaction.
