Nearly 67 percent of divorced men fake orgasm, a latest study by a dating website reveals.

The reason? They lack emotional intimacy post-divorce, the researchers at DatingAdvice.com, claim. The study was conducted on 1, 080 men to understand the effects of ending a marriage on the libido.

The study results also showed that older men generally fake orgasms. The research found that more twice as many 25-34-year-olds deceived their partners by faking orgasms compared to 18-24 years old men.

"Arousal does not thrive in an atmosphere of anxiety," and for many men, "dating again after separation isn't a picnic," Stephanie Manes, a relationship expert, told Daily Mail.

Supporting Manes' opinion, Dr Wendy, another expert said that men tend to fake orgasm because they "aren't at the stage where they can express emotional intimacy."

The participants expressed their viewpoint on faking orgasm to the researchers."It's hard for some of us to get there, and after a certain point we know when it's just not going to happen," a man commented to Huffington Post. "Rather than making our partner self-conscious for not getting us off, we fake it," he said.

"Exactly. It's the polite way to end sex. You can't just say 'well honey I don't think I'm going to get there tonight' - that invites too much talk," another man named Randy M Still said.

"Many factors play into it I believe - medication, blood pressure, diet, exercise, testosterone, amount of rest, stress, anxiety," he added.
