Guess we're just super sexy or something.
Nearly half of all men in the world climax with two minutes, according to a study done by Dr. Harry Fisch, author of a new book called "The New Naked: The Ultimate Sex Education for Grownups." He also says most women need an average of 5-7 minutes of vaginal penetration to reach orgasm. That sounds pretty accurate to me, although I've only had a handful of orgasms from vaginal sex alone, and most of those were faked.
Dr. Fish also writes:
Not surprisingly, there is an extremely large variation in the time it takes a couple to have sex, ranging from the excessively short (about two minutes or less, which famed sex researcher Alfred Kinsey dryly noted was a "frequent source of marital conflict") to the "Are you done yet?" (over forty minutes).
I enjoy sex just as much as the rest of you, but there's no way I want some dude slamming his junk inside of me for 45 minutes straight. That just hurts. This might be a little TMI, but I have a tilted uterus which causes pain from having sex at certain angles. It's actually called "collision dyspareunia," and it's when the penis hits the wall of the cervix and causes pain.
