No offence, but research has suggested you mightn’t be the bedroom god you think you are.
Researchers from the University of Leeds and the University of Lancashire studied the sex lives of 71 women aged between 18 and 48, wanting to know how vocal they are during sex.
Men, be warned – the results don’t make for good reading.
The study concluded that most women experienced orgasm either during foreplay with a partner or through solo masturbation, they were most likely to moan right before and during their partner’s orgasm.
Want us to dumb it down even more? The majority of women in the study admitted to moaning in order to speed up their man’s orgasm so they could get sex over and done with.
Sixty-six per cent of women in the study said they moaned to speed up their man’s orgasm, while 87 per cent said they got vocal to boost their partner’s self-esteem. Yes, they moan because they feel sorry for us.
“This data together clearly demonstrates a disassociation of the timing of women experiencing orgasm and making copulatory vocalisations and indicate that there is at least an element of these responses that are under conscious control, providing women with an opportunity to manipulate male behaviour to their advantage,” the study concluded.
