7.3 minutes of sexual bliss

For those men who are wondering how they did last night (or last week, last month, last year, last prom night), here is some benchmarking information.

In a study of 1,500 couples (probably heterosexual) the median length of intercourse was 7.3 minutes (I knew that porn movies were all lies!).

Optimal time for sex, according to women, was 3-13 minutes. But beware - foreplay and postcoital are not included in this timeframe, so don't just jump in and jump out.


Women's Porn

Yet another stereotypical portrayal of gender differences, but so funny and glamorous. This series is from Cambridge Women's Pornography Cooperative.
