The pressure on men to last longer in bed is summed up in modern pop culture by rapper Missy Elliot who sings as she does not want “not a man to the minute” and dancehall artist Ms. Thing who needs a “one, two -, three hour man.” Most men do not want to finish first in the bedroom for fear of not being up to it.

So, how many minutes of sex are enough and how many are too few?

In an article for The Conversationalist, Dr. Brendan Zietsch, a psychologist at the University of Queensland, talks about what he has learned about researching the length of time that heterosexual couples report having penetrative sex.

He writes, “I know that sex is much more than putting the penis in the vagina and ejaculating, but the rest is not always easy to define (kissing? Rubbing? Rubbing?). To keep things simple and precise, just focus on the moment of ejaculation. “

How do we define the beginning and the end of sex? The definition is centered on the penis. Zietsch measured the official time between penetration and ejaculation by observing data from 500 couples around the world who used a stopwatch to time their sexual acts over a four-week period. Participants pressed “start” at the time of penile penetration and

“stop” on ejaculation. The chronometer was the method of choice because people are more likely to be biased if they are simply asked how much time they take without appropriate action. In addition, it is a difficult step because people do not usually watch the clock during sex.

The results revealed that the average time for each couple, every time they had sex, ranged from 33 seconds to 44 minutes. Meanwhile, the average of all couples was 5.4 minutes. This means that a couple will usually spend an average of 5.4 minutes each time they have sex.

Interestingly, condom use and circumcision do not affect the length of the bedroom. Some men believe that condoms make them lose an erection, because it removes all sensitivity and feeling. However, a 2015 study found that heterosexual men between the ages of 18 and 24, who cited the

condom as an erection barrier, were more likely to suffer from general erectile dysfunction regardless of whether they use condoms or not.

In addition, the country of origin does not affect the duration of sex, unless couples come from Turkey, which tends to be significantly shorter (3.7 minutes) than couples from other countries. country. The age of the couple actually influenced the duration of intercourse. The older the couple, the shorter the sex.

Depending on the age range of men, an average of five minutes can be good or bad. However, according to a 2008 study of American and Canadian sexologists, sex “too short” lasts one to two minutes, “adequate” three to seven minutes and “desirable” seven to 13 minutes. The “too long” beach has gone from 10 to 30 minutes.

It seems that anything over ten minutes is ideal, but unusual.

So, why do we last as long as we do? Whether it’s two minutes or 30?

Zietsch suspects that the shape of the penis could affect the duration of sex in bed. In a 2003 study using artificial vaginas, artificial penises and artificial spermatozoa (corn syrup), researchers found that the crest

surrounding the penis head could extract pre-existing syrup from the vagina. In other words, men’s repeated push during intercourse could have the effect of moving other men’s sperm before ejaculation. This ensures that their swimmers will have a better chance of reaching the egg first for fertilization.

Incidentally, this could explain why it becomes painful for a man to continue pushing after ejaculating, as this would also risk taking his own sperm,” writes Zietsch.

So, how long does sex take? Obviously, there is no “normal” definition.

When it comes to the heat of the moment, pleasure has no number.
