This is an exclusive study conducted by DatingAdvice.com, which surveyed respondents over the course of three weeks to reflect an accurate representation of the U.S. population.
While a previous study conducted by DatingAdvice.com found about one in four men have faked an orgasm, new follow-up research shows a large percentage of those men are divorcees.
According to the results, divorced men are 67 percent more likely to fake an orgasm than single men.
And it appears the practice becomes more prevalent with age, as more older male respondents said they have put on an act in bed.
Thirty-three percent of men aged 25 to 34 said they’ve faked sexual pleasure, while just 12 percent of 18- to 24-year-old men have done so.
“Divorced men are 67 percent more likely
to fake an orgasm than single men.”
Among the least likely groups to answer in the affirmative was Asian men and high-wage earners.
About one in five Asian-American men have pretended to achieve orgasm, compared to one in three African-American men.
Thirty percent of male respondents earning between $50,000 and $74,999 a year said they have faked an orgasm – twice the rate of those earning $125,000 annually.
The study surveyed 1,080 respondents over the course of three weeks, balancing responses by age, gender, income, race, sexuality and other factors in order to accurately represent the U.S. population. The study has a margin of error of +/- 2.8%
