According to a new survey by, one in four men have faked an orgasm at some point in their life. The study was conducted over a three-week period with 1,080 participants; the men who faked the most were African American men and divorced men.

Thirty-three percent of men aged 25 to 34 also said that they faked sexual pleasure, compared to just 12 percent of 18- to 24-year-old men.

A previous study of this kind was done in 2012 by It was found that out of 2,000 participants, 34 percent of the men said they had faked an orgasm once in their life; two years before, that number was 17 percent.

It was also found that as men got older, their chances of faking increased because of age-related sexual issues and dysfunctions.

Many question, how can men fake it? According to sex expert Michael Castleman, condoms are usually the key. Usually a woman will not know if the man has faked it, especially when a condom is used, because men often time discard condoms right after.

However, in 2010, researchers at the University of Kansas asked 281 men to complete an anonymous sex survey that included questions about faking orgasm. Twenty-eight percent of men said that they faked and sometimes without a condom.

“So it seems that some college-age women are as clueless about men's orgasms as men can be about women's,” Castleman said.
