#3. They fake it for the same reasons women fake it
The primary reason for faking it was because it just wasn’t going to happen for them during sex. Maybe he’s had too much drink, he’s feeling anxious, or he’s on medications for anxiety or depression that make it harder to orgasm. It’s almost the same as what happens with women. It’s a way of saying to their partner that they still did a good job, everything’s fine, and it’s enough for now. Essentially, both genders fake it for pretty unselfish reasons.
