Not missing a beat, authors Petr Weiss and Stuart Brody added: "It could be that this reflects, on average, a greater appreciation of intercourse and sensuality by Europeans than by Americans." Quite a loaded statement from such an objective scientist, no?
Regardless, the statistics, as pulled from Psychologytoday. com went as such. "Women who report average intercourse length of 1 to 10 minutes, 50% had an orgasm most of the time and 28% had them in a minority of cases or never. For women who report 11 to 20 minutes, the numbers are 62% and 22%, and for the women who boink more than 20 minutes they're 72% and 13%."
So what about sex lasting longer than 20 minutes? Would that number just keep rising? We don't think so, and we're not even entirely sure it's possible to put a definite number of minutes until the female orgasm is reached. Even for theoretical purposes. Female orgasms really are an elusive and mysterious force that are often as complicated and particular as the woman they're attached to (sorry fellas).
Frustratingly, often times what works for one, won't work for another. Men should just be happy their equipment is so user-friendly.
While we'll smile and nod at the above and meet the researchers halfway by agreeing that, yes, intercourse from an attentive partner certainly won't detract from an orgasm, we gotta call their bluff on this last sentence.
"Another interesting stat: Of the women who report that intercourse usually lasts only 1-5 minutes, fully two thirds said they come with their partner at least about half the time, and 19.4% said they come "almost every time."
