“Make Noise: Back in 2011, there was a study done at Temple University that found that at least 60 percent of women have faked an orgasm at some point — hardly a shocker, but their reasons why had more to do with themselves than appeasing their partners. One such reason was that making noise — mimicking the sounds of sexual pleasure that usually precipitate or go along with an orgasm — actually increased their own enjoyment. This made total sense to me, as the SOUNDS of sex can be as big if not bigger a turn on as the visuals of sex.”
