This Hilarious Soccer Video Explains Why You Shouldn'T Fake An Orgasm
Faking it in bed isn't really funny, but on the soccer field it's comedic gold. To coincide with the World Cup, Durex came up with a video to remind us that sex, like soccer, is better for everyone involved when you're not faking it. Their campaign, aptly titled #dontfakeit, continues the condom company's trend of promoting sexual honesty. As these goofy players trip, flop and headbutt the ball, their melodramatic reactions remind you that it's totally unnecessary to give a faux performance in bed, too.
While nobody wants to be a faker, studies have shown that women pretend to orgasm for a few different reasons, including: to avoid hurting a guy's feelings; to hurry up and finish a session they aren't enjoying; to increase their own arousal during the act (a fake it 'til you make it approach); or because they feel insecure about coming in the first place. On top of all the distress it causes women, men also feel bummed when their partner doesn't get off. Not to mention you're implying that whatever they're doing feels great, when maybe it doesn't. Plus, if you give an over-the-top performance like these players, you may just look silly.
