why do women moan sex

Porn clumsily teaches us a moaning girl in bed is a girl well pleased, we’re sorry to bust your ego, but this is not always the case. So, why do women moan?

While men grunt, curse, and growl, women can moan an amazing three octaves during sex. Humans are one of the few species other than cats, cows, and giant tortoises known to make weird noises during sexual intercourse. Understanding why do women moan will make you a better lover.

The actual reasons are more complicated as they are a mystery. Just like a newborn infant crying, moaning during sex may sound the same every time. It means different things in certain situations. So, what other reasons are there that compel her to make those sexy vocalizations during sex? [Read: Understanding why most males don’t moan during sex]

Why do women moan during sex

Do you think female moans during sex is a recent, human-exclusive behavior? You are wrong. There are a few other species that exhibit this type of behavior. Our primate cousins in fact, present evidence that moaning during sex isn’t just for pleasure but serves a more evolutionary purpose. The most obvious reason is to call a mate.

Early pre-human ancestors, with no complex vocabulary such as ours, relied on specific vocalizations to attract mates. And when they got a mate through these calls, they used it to attract more potential mates to ensure they get fertilized by the best sperm from the herd. In time, males are then conditioned to recognize sexual pleasure from these vocalizations.

#1 She moans because she can’t help it. Most women admit moaning during sex happens naturally. Just like how you vocalize when the massage therapist hits the right spot or the exact moment after you dip into a comfortable bath, the pleasure  drives them to moan involuntarily.

#2 She moans to encourage her man to perform better. A woman moaning during sex is like a cheerleader’s chant during a ball game. The undeniably erotic sound just drives their partner to focus and perform better during intercourse. Men cannot deny that hearing their partner moan is a big sexy form of encouragement which drives them to do better in bed. [Read: Big issues on a man’s mind during sex]

#3 She moans to help her man become “harder.” The sound of female sex moans is just erotic to a man’s ears. Hearing it instantly makes his erection harder for her benefit.

#4 She moans because it helps her make sex feel good. In some cases, women are turned on by the sound of their own moans. Women unconsciously encourage moaning by their own pleasure center in order to enjoy sex better.

#5 She moans because she’s in pain or discomfort. As mentioned, moaning isn’t just a sign of pleasure. There are times that she moans because she feels pain or discomfort. If you go too rough on her or if your penis strikes her insides raw, men should know which moan is which.

#6 She can also moan if she’s bored or unsatisfied. Moaning has a positive, stimulating effect on both partners during sex. So, when sex takes a dull and boring turn, she may let out a squeak or two to let her partner know he’s doing a poor job and set his game straight.

#7 She moans to boost her man’s ego. If she does this, she probably loves you. By moaning, she lets you think you do a good job in bed. The louder the moan, the more she boosts your ego saying you’re a great lover.

#8 She moans to set her man’s sexual rhythm. By her moans she completely takes control of the rhythm of her man’s thrusts and movements by either moaning loudly, softly, or vocalizing faster. Moaning can be thought of as the cue sound to let the man know when to slow down or speed things up.

#9 She can fake a moan to wrap up the whole session. If things take too long and she wants you to come and be done with it, she uses her moans to drive you into an earlier orgasm. Women generally only handle a good 15-20 minutes of intercourse and any longer hurts. So, if the man takes too long, and she feels her natural lubricant dry up, she definitely uses this tactic.

#10 She moans because silent sex is just awkward. Horror films are not as scary without the cue music. In the same way, sex without moans is awkward and less enjoyable. Moaning is just a part of the whole ritual. Sex would feel rather unusual if she didn’t vocalize. [Read: How to change the way you have sex and make it much better]

#11 Because loud sex is simply the best. No matter what the eggheads say, both men and women prefer the ambient sound of pleasured moans. It just gives sex a better flavor.
