Research reveals that your partner knows if you’re faking it
“We found that, on average, both men and women have fairly accurate and unbiased perceptions of their partners’ sexual satisfaction.”
A new study published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior from University of Waterloo is part of a larger study involving 84 couples reporting on sexual functioning and satisfaction. The partners each reported on their levels of commitment, relationship satisfaction, sexual satisfaction, sexual communication and measured their emotion recognition abilities.
“Over time, a couple will develop sexual routines. We believe that having the ability to accurately gauge each other’s sexual satisfaction will help partners to develop sexual scripts that they both enjoy. Specifically, being able to tell if their partners are sexually satisfied will help people decide whether to stick with a current routine or try something new.”
