A survey of sex therapists has concluded the optimal amount of time for sexual intercourse is three to 13 minutes.
Journal of Sexual Medicine, strike at the notion that endurance is the key to a great sex life. However, the time does not count foreplay, and the therapists did rate sexual intercourse that lasts from one to two minutes as "too short."
Median duration 7,3 minutes
Dr Irwin Goldstein, editor of the Journal of Sexual Medicine, cited a four-week study of 1 500 couples in 2005 that found the median time for sexual intercourse was 7,3 minutes. (Women were armed with stopwatches.)
How the study was done
Fifty members of the Society for Sex Therapy and Research in the US and Canada were surveyed by Corty, an associate professor of psychology at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, and student Jenay Guardiani.
