A new study reveals that watching porn gives men unrealistic expectations about women’s orgasms. Researchers analysed a popular adult websites top 50 most viewed videos to determine frequency of both male and female orgasms.

The researchers looked at orgasm, including sex acts, whether there was clitoral stimulations, what men and women sounded like when they climaxed and how their bodies responded when they reached their sexual peak. Following the study, researchers came to the conclusion that only 18 per cent of women actually had orgasms.

 

The rest were all faking it.

This was in comparison to 78 per cent of men who climaxed during the act.

The study was carried out at the University of Montreal and went on to conclude that pornography instilled unrealistic beliefs and expectations in relation to female orgasm and male sexual performance.

Another study also said that watching too much porn made men disinterested in sex and suffer erectile dysfunction during the real act.

It turns out, according to another study, one in five men watch porn three to five times a week and three per cent admit they prefer it to sex with a partner. But the study has already been questioned upon by another group.
