Warning - graphic content: Find out everything you were wondering about sex. Our Saturday morning email features the very best news and exclusive content from our team of reporters. There are a whole host of factors which impact our sex lives, or lack thereof, including age, health, sex drive and lifestyle to name a few. But now someone has gone and worked out how much sex we should be having, the Mirror online reports.
This is how long sex is supposed to last
How long does sex normally last?
February 25, Australians report having sex once or twice a week, on average. For Brits, it's less than once a week , while Americans report having sex two to three times a week. We can't know for sure how often individuals actually have sex. Some people may incorrectly report their sexual frequency , either by mistake or on purpose.
How Long Should Sex Really Last?
How long does sex last on average? We expect sex to last for about thirty minutes, surveys suggest. Unfair expectations aside, however, a fundamental question remains largely unanswered: how long is the average length of sex? And most recently, some not-so-scientific data collected by sauceydates. Data notwithstanding, psychophysiologist and neuroscientist Nicole Prause is skeptical.
You came here looking for an answer, and an answer I will give you: Sex should last one hour, 34 minutes, and 22 seconds—the exact runtime of Wayne's World. Shyeah, right! Marathon sex sessions are used as a measurement of just how steamy an evening was. And while quickies can be fun, they should constitute a piece of a balanced sex life—not the whole thing. While there's no magic number, one study back in in the Journal of Sexual Medicine asked a bunch of sex therapists for their opinions on how long sex should last.
