Here Is How Long You Should Be Lasting During Sex According To Science

Have you ever wondered how long you should be lasting during sex? Are you a two pump chump? A jackrabbit? Or wannabe Ron Jeremy? Well now you can finally know the answer thanks to science.

Not only is this backed by science, it’s backed by I F*CKING LOVE SCIENCE:

As you might wonder, was that too fast? A scientist thinks: What is the mean intravaginal ejaculation latency time?

INTRAVAGINAL!? 

I know there’s a lot more to sex than putting the penis into the vagina and ejaculating, but the rest is not always easy to define (kissing? Rubbing? Grinding?). To keep things simple and specific, we’ll just focus on the time to ejaculation.

Measuring an average time to ejaculation is not a straightforward matter. What about just asking people how long they take, you say? Well, there are two main problems with this. One is that people are likely to be biased upwards in their time estimates, because it’s socially desirable to say you go long into the night.

The other problem is that people don’t necessarily know how long they go for. Sex isn’t something people normally do while monitoring the bedside clock, and unassisted time estimation may be difficult.

What does the research say?

The best study we have estimating the average time to ejaculation in the general population involved 500 couples from around the world timing themselves having sex over a four-week period – using a stopwatch.

That is as practically awkward as it sounds: participants pressed “start” at penile penetration and “stop” at ejaculation. You may note this could affect the mood somewhat, and might perhaps not exactly reflect the natural flow of things. But – science is rarely perfect, and this is the best we’ve got.

What did the researchers find?

 

 

Obviously there are a lot of issues when it comes to actually figuring out the average amount of time spent in one session of sex. When does the clock technically start? Is foreplay included?

Also, measuring the time is an awkward matter, as counting out-loud in the sack could possibly ruin the mood.

The actual awkward research didn’t have people counting the seconds, but rather setting a stopwatch. A group of scientists from the Netherlands actually got 500 couples from all over the world to agree to time themselves having sex for 4 weeks. They literally pressed “start” when the vagina was entered and “stop” when it was all said and done.

What did they find? Basically, the times were all over the board. The average time for each couple (averaged across all the times they had sex) ranged from 33 seconds to 44 minutes. That, folks, is an 80-fold difference.

Obviously this means that there isn’t in fact a “normal” amount of time to have sex. The median across all couples, however was 5.4 minutes. All this means is that when you line up the 500 couples from shortest sex to longest sex, the middle couple has an average time-count of 5.4 minutes each time they do it.

The scientists also found that condom use doesn’t affect the time, and neither does circumcision. This challenges the age-old wisdom that penile sensitivity impacts how long the sex will last.

Where the couples lived didn’t really matter either, unless they were from Turkey. Their sex seemed to be a lot shorter than couples from other places, clocking in at 3.7 minutes.

Another surprise was that the older the couple, the shorter time spent getting it on.

So the next time you feel inadequate because of however long (or short) the sex was, just remember: it really does happen to everyone.

So next time you are getting out, try and sing your favorite rap song in your head. All three verses! If you can make it through that song, you will only need to survive one more min or so!

Or just bust in 45 seconds like the rest of us and act like it isn’t that big of a deal… The Conversation
