If you fake sexual satisfaction with your partner chances are you're not fooling anyone, a new Canadian study has found.

In a study involving 84 couples, researchers at Ontario's University of Waterloo found men and women could tell if their partners were playing up their sexual satisfaction.

Communication helped partners understand each others' sexual satisfaction, but the study's lead author Erin Fallis said, "even if sexual communication was lacking, a person could still be fairly accurate in gauging his or her partner's sexual satisfaction if he or she was able to read emotions well."

As part of the study, Fallis separated the couples and interviewed each one about their relationships and sexual experiences.

"On average, both men and women have fairly accurate and unbiased perceptions of their partners' sexual satisfaction," Fallis said.

The study has been published in the April edition of the journal Archives of Sexual Behaviour.
