How Long is the Best Sex? Seven Minutes
Anything longer is too much, anything shorter is or too little.
Sorry Don Juans. Sex doesn't have to last an entire evening to be amazing. According to a new study, the perfect amount of time for sexual intercourse is only 7 to thirteen minutes long.
Researchers at Penn State University quizzed 50 doctors, social workers and health experts at the Society for Sex Therapy and Research, and found that most reported that one to two minutes was "too short" and that three to seven minutes was just barely "adequate."
However, most of the society members said sex that lasts over 10 minutes is just "too long."
"Today's popular culture has reinforced stereotypes about sexual activity," said Professor Eric Corty, one of the study's authors. "Many men and women seem to believe the fantasy model of large penises and all-night-long intercourse."
Of course, these ideas set people up for awkward sex moments where things don't usually go the way you think they're going to, and can actually lead to individuals with sexual problems. Not if he can help it, says Corty.
"With this survey, we hope to dispel such fantasies and encourage men and women with realistic data about acceptable sexual intercourse," the good doctor said, "thus preventing sexual disappointments and dysfunctions."
