Faking orgasms might be something you’d associate more with women than men, but it apparently does happen with guys from time to time.
In fact, a new study has been conducted which suggests a higher percentage of men have pretended to orgasm than you’d ever expect.
New research has been revealed that claims as many as one in four men have faked an orgasm at some point in their lives.
According to a study conducted by Léa J Séguin of the Department of Sexology at the University of Quebec, this happens most when men are having bad sex, with a “bad choice of partner”, reported the Daily Express.
One in four sounds like an implausibly high number – after all, isn’t it impossible to convincingly fake a male orgasm? – but it must happen fairy frequently with some blokes based on this evidence.
Explaining why men felt the need to fake climaxes, the study suggested that men might do so to “support a partner’s emotional well-being” and not make them feel bad, which kind of makes sense if you think about it.
So, while you might associate faking orgasms more with the opposite sex, a quarter of blokes have allegedly pretended to climax at some point in their lives too. Who knew?
