New York: A lot of men are apparently faking orgasm, according to a new study.

Researchers said that about 16 percent of men don’t experience the pleasure when they climax. The problem isn’t getting aroused or ejaculating, it’s finding pleasure in the moment, reports the New York Daily News.

“When I asked the test subjects in plain language, ‘Did you feel orgasm after ejaculating after sex with a woman, 16 percent of men in our group said they didn`t have sensation of orgasm,” said Dr. Darius Paduch, assistant professor of urology and reproductive medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College.

He called the study results ‘astonishing’.

The problem doesn’t just affect older men. Even men in their 20s are having the same sexual letdown, said Paduch.

It isn`t easy for men to admit to their partner that they can`t enjoy sex.

“Our society is more sympathetic for women facing sexual problems, but men are still faced with self-doubt, fear of being labelled as impotent, inadequate and just not a full man,” said Paduch.

The study was presented at the European Society for Sexual Medicine.
