It’s been a long day- work, deadlines and the mundane details of life has worn you down. Now the other half’s asking for some nookie, and you’re trying to budget some time for it while still getting enough sleep before another punishing work day. Exactly how long is enough though?
According to a survey done by Saucy Dates, an international sample of 3,836 women indicates on average women wanted their sex sessions to last 25 minutes and 51 seconds, while for men it was 25 minutes and 43 seconds.
So there’s your answer- 25 minutes.. and an extra 8 seconds to hold out if you want her to feel equally satisfied.
The study also showed that most guys all around the world don’t seem to be hitting the mark though. 500 heterosexual couples timed themselves having sex over a period of four weeks, which ranges of durations from 33 seconds to 44 minutes, and the average for most countries ended up being 5.4 minutes. Maybe we’ve really been scheduling for sleep than sex after all!
