7 Nigerian Men Reveal Why They Fake Orgasms

July 29, 2020

While women tend to talk more openly about faking orgasms during sex, they aren’t the only ones who do it. A lot of men also exercise their acting chops in the bedroom.

A few months ago, we asked 7 Nigerian women to tell us why they do it, and now, we are going to hear from the men. From boredom to impatience, here are the reasons they gave.

Tomiwa, 27/Male/Straight

I can only come under very specific circumstances. If I jerked off in the last 24 hours, for example, I will not have an orgasm. It’s not a big deal, but it’s not every babe that will understand.

I don’t fake it often, but I do it from time to time. If it’s a babe with a fragile ego or one I don’t care enough about to be honest with, like a one-night stand, I’ll just fake it to avoid unnecessary yarns.  

I’ve also faked it because I was bored and wanted to go play Xbox. I actually remember one babe whose vagina stank, so I just started vibrating after 2 minutes — that’s how long I could hold my breath — and told her I came.

Emmanuel, 30/Male/Bisexual

I don’t fake orgasms often. I rarely feel the need to massage anyone’s ego. If I’m not feeling the sex, I will let you know, so we can either find a way to fix it or move on with our lives.

The only time I’ve ever faked it was when I accidentally double-booked two hook-ups. I knew hook-up number 2 would be arriving soon, and it was taking me too long to come with hook-up number 1, so I faked it.

James, 26/Male/Straight

I’ve only ever faked an orgasm once. There was this babe I really liked who was pretty bad in bed. Since I’m a giver, I’d always focus on her orgasms, and I guess she started feeling bad that I never came.  

So, she decided to make that her mission. It was really well-intentioned, but the sex somehow got worse. Nothing she did was working — from her head game to her riding. 

She started becoming really self-conscious about it, so after her third attempt, I just had to fake it. She was very pleased with herself. I got extra plantains on my Indomie that night. 

David, 26/Male/Straight

Honestly, a lot of Nigerian women don’t know how to fuck. They’re used to doing the barest minimum in bed. So, whenever I hook up with babes like that, I tend to fake it. Other times, I’m simply not in the mood. 

I’ve actually had a few situations where I opened up to the babe about how I wasn’t feeling the sex at that moment and it wasn’t a big deal. Other times, they acted as if I had just stabbed them in their chest. 

So, I’d rather fake it and not bruise their ego. It’s actually very easy to fake it. I just announce that I’m about to come, start pounding excessively and finish it off with a mini convulsion. Then I quickly get rid of the condom. 

Sochi, 26/Male/Gay

I’m constantly faking my orgasms. I don’t actually enjoy sex, like at all. I think I’ve only ever genuinely enjoyed it twice in my entire life. I fake it to make my partner happy.

I tend to get pleasure from being with someone I really like, and that form of intimacy is what really does it for me. So, sex only feels “pleasurable” because I really like them. If they’re happy, I’m happy.

Ebuka, 28/Male/Straight

I fake it for a bunch of reasons. Either I’m just too tired, the sex isn’t slapping like I hoped or I suddenly realise that I’m not as attracted to the person as I thought.

I know the babe might take my lack of enjoyment as some kind of insult, so I fake it to spare her feelings. I just start moaning loudly, fake a few spasms, pull out and run to the bathroom. 

I think I’ve faked it more than 10 times. I remember hooking up with one babe, and I knew it would take forever for me to finish. There was an Arsenal match about to start, so I just had to do it.

Dapo, 30/Male/Straight

I’ve only faked it twice, but there’s one instance I really remember. We’d already had sex twice that day, but she wanted to go another round. I wasn’t in the mood anymore, but I had a boner, so I just agreed.  

After fucking for what felt like forever, I knew I wouldn’t be coming anytime soon. I also wasn’t in my typical ‘I’m not done until she’s satisfied’ mood, especially since she’d already come twice that day, so I faked it.
