Guys Fake Orgasms Too!

I've asked you in the past whether or not you think it's OK for a woman to fake an orgasm, and the results were split. Some of you said you had no need to fake it (lucky!), while others owned up to doing it occasionally just to give your man an ego-boost, or so you could get some sleep.

Well in case you didn't know, guys fake the "Big O" too. In The Orgasm Survey (yes, this is a real thing), findings revealed that 24 percent of guys fake it — that's one in four men! Society generally views faking it as a female habit, but if you want to hear some reasons why guys may feel the need to do it too, then


  • He feels pressured to perform.
  • She's trying hard to please him, but his body's not cooperating.
  • He's exhausted and just wants to hit the hay.
  • He's not into the sex, and faking it is a way to get it over with.
  • He's not physically or emotionally attracted to his partner.
  • He's hiding his sexual identity.
  • He's with a new partner and can't relax enough to let go.
  • He doesn't want his partner to know he's having sexual issues.
  • He feels that having an orgasm is a way to prove he's manly.

After reading that list I'm wondering, have you ever been with a guy who's faked it?

I don't think my boyfriend could fake iteven if he wanted to. I think I could tell. And I've faked an orgasm many times. He always seems to want sex when I'm TIRED! Sometimes it's just to get him to stop pestering me. But I've had my fair share of real orgasms.

Myst, I had the same conversation with some guy friends. (It wasn't awkward, weirdly enough.) And honestly everyone, I really think it's hard to fake it (for men and women) and not be able to tell if they did. Though I have had to fake one time with an ex. I didn't want to deflate his ego (literally and figuratively).

I told my fiance about this article's statistic and he looked at me like I was nuts. He said, "uh... isn't that kinda hard to fake." I guess there's my answer and I'm in the safe zone.

I had to laugh at this question, but I subscribe to Men's Health and after achieving the 'Big O', either party will be totally 'spent' and fall asleep rather easily. If a guy is touched in the right place, he will "explode" prematurely - 'premature ejaculation' is a condition that can be treated. Also, there are 'signals' that either party can notice to tell whether their partner is having an "O" - stiff nipples being one. Oh, well. Like with the lottery - "Gotta Play to Win"! LOL

I'm not currently sexually active, but I would hope that this would never happen. I honestly think you would be able to tell if he faked the orgasm. I'm very open with my partners, and I'm okay with them not being able to reach an orgasm all the time. They should tell me and I'd understand. Isn't communication one of the most important factors in any relationship?

if my bf doesn't cum, we'll stop (as I get extremely tired and annoyed after giving all positions a try in one go) and maybe do it the next morning before he leaves for office. but surely, he simply can't ejaculate unless he is satisfied. i think, this happens on nights when we are drunk.

Wow, I would have thought it would be pretty hard to fake given the ... sperm. I've never experienced a guy faking an orgasm !!

To my knowledge my boyfriend hasn't done this. If you're paying attention to a guys face it should be easy to tell if he's coming or not, unless he's a very good actor.

As far as I know my husband has never done this but I must admit that I hate it when we have to stop before he's finished and I wouldn't blame him for faking it. Woman think that a guy has to come to have good sex and at the same time we know we don't have to in order to have fantastic sex. I think we need to get over that!

its easy to fake if you use a condom.. who really looks at the condom after sex? Usually the guy disposes of it. Now if there is no condom you def have ____ inside of you and aint no faking that!

Come to think of it, guys *can* be forced to ejaculate by having their prostate stimulated in certain ways. However, I still don't think that mechanism can be used by the guy himself - especially when it's only mentally.

"ejaculating and having a orgasm isn't really the same thing." As a guy, I have serious problems grasping that concept. I simply cannot ejaculate without climaxing. I'm tempted to say that these guys were bsing you. I personally would never fake an orgasm either, I'd rather be honest and talk about the problems I'm facing to make them go away. Heck, I want to enjoy sex just as much as my partner! Communication is key, can only repepeat it...

He hasn't done this with me but he has said he has done it in the past.

My boyfriend definitely has never done this.. if he just doesn't cum, he doesn't cum. When he has an orgasm, he tells me, if he can't get there, then it's fine, and we move on. We aren't afraid to tell each other we didn't have an orgasm.

Yeah, my BF said that he can force himself to not ejaculate -- which he has displayed. The orgasm isn't the same thing as ejaculating. However, I don't think he's ever faked it. I think he would be overly obvious about it. He's such a bad liar.

ejaculating and having a orgasm isn't really the same thing. I've had my guys friends break it down for me. They said there's a real difference (who knew) and if the sex isn't particularly good they will let themselves come just to get it over with.

Seriously, HOW would a guy fake it? Unless the girl was really out of it and didn't notice that, um, the volcano didn't erupt...
