Divorced Men More Likely to Fake Orgasm

Update Date: Sep 13, 2013 07:44 PM EDT

A new sex survey reveals that divorced men are 67 percent more likely to fake an orgasm than bachelors.

Researchers said this is because divorced men are more likely to reject emotional intimacy.

The latest study, which was conducted by and involved 1,080 male participants, reveals how the traumas of a marriage break-up can affect libido.

Stephanie Manes, a relationship expert, told Daily Mail that "arousal does not thrive in an atmosphere of anxiety," and for many men, " dating again after separation isn't a picnic."

Another expert Dr. Wendy Walsh said that many men bluff in the bedroom because they "aren't at the stage where they can express emotional intimacy."

They survey also found that men are more likely to fake orgasms the older they get. Researchers found that more than twice as many 25 to 34 year olds had tricked their partners between the sheets than those between the ages of 18 and 24.

"It's hard for some of us to get there, and after a certain point we know when it's just not going to happen," a man commented on Huffington Post.

"Rather than making our partner self-conscious for not getting us off, we fake it," he said.

"Exactly. It's the polite way to end sex. You can't just say 'well honey I don't think I'm going to get there tonight' - that invites too much talk," another man under the Randy M Still added.

"Many factors play into it I believe - medication, blood pressure, diet, exercise, testosterone, amount of rest, stress, anxiety," he added.
