Researchers took 810 men with a mean age of 25, and had them read a passage of text in which they imagined that an attractive woman either did or did not orgasm during a sexual encounter with them.

They were then told to rate their sexual self-esteem, and to what extent they felt more or less masculine, depending on whether or not the woman experienced an orgasm.

Results found that men felt more masculine if they imagined that the woman did have an orgasm, with the paper going on to reveal that men can"ruin things"by boasting about their own prowess, making the orgasm about them, and not the woman who experienced it.

Just be nice, basically.
