Faking an orgasm: the cons

What is the limit between "benign" and "problematic" simulation? Well-being is the best barometer: as long as the simulation only happens sometimes and doesn't prevent both partners from accessing true pleasure, don't worry! However, when "simulation" rhymes with "frustration", the first thing to do is to ask yourself what are the reasons that lead to resorting to this strategy. At first, it is preferable to start working on yourself, with the help of a psychotherapist in case of anorgasmia, or of a sexologist in case of temporary anorgasmia. The goal? Understanding the root causes of malaise, be it personal or relational.
Avoid venturing into destabilizing revelations with your partner. Although in good faith, to recover some transparency in your relationship, too many delicate elements come into play in this discussion to be able to improvise.
In short: pretend ok, but understanding where and when there is a limit is fundamental!
