What really drives men to do what they do? Why Men Fake It uses the real-life stories of Dr. Abraham Morgentaler's patients to let us in on the secrets of men and to examine the current state of male sexuality in science and medicine as well as in relationships and popular culture. In this frank and open discussion of the subject, Dr. Morgentaler will make men and women alike question what we think we know about gender, motivation, sexuality, relationships, and, ultimately, the definition of a "man."

From the biology and science behind the "bionic penis" to the psychology behind men faking orgasms, Why Men Fake It will change the conversation about male sexual health and will introduce the world to sex and relationships from a new point of view. Dr. Morgentaler's exploration of male sexuality from the Masters and Johnson era through the introduction of Viagra, feminism, and the Internet provides the basis for his provocative and revolutionary ideas regarding men and sex—a topic that, until now, has been either sensationalized or stereotyped by the media—to give us the definitive guide to men as we've never seen them before. From these stories you will gain a surprising perspective on the minds and motivations of men: committed, caring, loving, and sometimes clumsy individuals doing their best to be great partners in their relationships.
