Leaving behind its international reputation for romance, France has bagged the top spot on the charts, when it came to faking orgasms, according to a new survey.
Out of a survey of France, the US, Spain, the UK, Italy, Canada, the Netherlands and Germany, French women struggled most to climax with their partner, the Independent reported.
As per the experts, this might be due to a culture that follows the classic sexual practice of vaginal penetration, which does not commonly induce orgasms in women.
The survey carried out for International Orgasm Day showed that 49 per cent of French female respondents said they “fairly regularly” struggled to orgasm during sex, while 41 per cent of the UK women said they struggled to orgasm.
Yet while only a quarter of British women would then fake an orgasm, 31 per cent of French women admitted to doing so – the highest of all the countries polled.
The survey, looking at the ways women were most easily able to climax, found that masturbation was the most functioning response at 80 per cent, with anal penetration the least popular at 36 per cent.
Carried out in November 2015, the survey looked at 1,003 women.
