Poll Says 50 Percent of Men Have Faked an Orgasm

According to the results of a new poll from online dating service Lavalife, almost fifty percent of men have faked an orgasm. Faking orgasms isn’t just for the ladies anymore. An astounding 48% of the 9,100 men polled on online dating site Lavalife.com say they too have faked an orgasm.

“When it comes to faking orgasms, people assume that it’s primarily done by women,” says Ambrose Diaz, a contributing editor to Lavalife Magazine, who recently researched the topic and wrote a story on the practice … or lack thereof. “The poll we conducted on http://www.lavalife.com/ shows us that it’s definitely not just women who are faking it, but a large number of men as well.”

How do men do it? “Wearing a condom makes it easy,” says Diaz. “According to my research, the men who have faked an orgasm without a condom just told their partners they didn’t ejaculate very much.”

According to Diaz, many of the reasons men fake orgasms are similar to those of women: they are tired, they just want to be done, or they just aren’t into sex that particular night. Some thought they were going to lose their erection or felt they were lacking an emotional connection.

In comparison to the men, 82% of the 6,350 women who were surveyed say they have faked an orgasm.
