3 Things You Didn't Know About Americans' Sexual Satisfaction

When it comes to sexual satisfaction, Americans could use a boost in bedroom confidence (and, apparently, in duration of intercourse).

It's a bold statement, but according to the findings from the latest Durex condoms survey, it's true. The condom brand polled Americans, asking pressing questions about just how happy everyone feels at the end of a sexual escapade.

Unfortunately, the results are a bit depressing. That's not to say nobody is sexually satisfied — plenty of people are reaching climax regularly — but those who aren't are a confused bunch. Not only do these sexually unfulfilled people feel deprived, but they also don't seem to know exactly what they want. Should sex last longer? Should he just get it over with already? That's what Durex set out to discover, and here's what they found.

Some think sex lasts too long. Fourteen percent of people admitted that they think sex lasts too long. Come on, people, beggars can't be choosers here. There are people in the world not having sex, though they badly want to, yet you're complaining that it lasts too long? It must depend on who you are and who you're doing it with; however, if you're finding sex to be long and unpleasant, chances are you have some issues with your partner.

Some think sex doesn't last long enough. Meanwhile, 37 percent of people think sex ends too quickly. This seems more in line with what sexual complaints should be. Missy Elliot didn't want no one-minute man, and neither do you. Nicely done, America. Want Your Guy To Last Longer During Sex?

Some are being proactive. Luckily, our great nation of sexually active adults isn't just a country of complainers — many are trying to do something about it. Seventy-five percent of men and 66 percent of women have made (or will make) an effort to change the pace during intercourse in an effort to achieve mutual climax that is neither too fast nor to slow. That's more like it, people! Previous Durex-funded research also found that people are willing to use lubricants, adult toys and rings to help heighten the pleasure of a climax. Well done.

Do you have a problem with sex lasting too long, or not long enough?
