1 in 3 Men Fake Orgasms

One in three men fake orgasms, according to a new survey.

A new study conducted by Time Out on men living in New York revealed that over 30 percent of respondents confessed to faking orgasms.

The latest findings are supported by research from the University of Kansas, where investigators found that 30 percent of men faked their climax. The study also revealed that most men gave similar reasons as women for faking their orgasm: they felt pressure to climax because their partner's orgasm was imminent, according to the Daily Mail.

In 2013, a Harvard urology professor published a book called "Why Men Fake It: The Totally Unexpected Truth About Men and Sex". In the book, Dr. Abraham Morgentaler talked about his experience of treating men with sexual disorders.

Morgentaler says that some men feel compelled to perform sexually even when they aren't feeling sexually aroused.

"While it's OK for a woman to say she's too tired to make love, or has a headache - in fact it's so common there are jokes about it - it's not acceptable for men," he said, according to the Daily Mail.

"The image is that men are always up for sex, which makes you feel under pressure to perform even when you don't want to," Morgentaler added.

"The big surprise to me when I started doing this work 25 years ago is that once a man is in a relationship, he seems to care more about his partner than himself," he said.

"In their minds, [faking an orgasm is] actually a form of kindness. In a way, they're letting the other person know that they've done a good job," he added.
