Are you kidding? Who does these studies anyhow? Who's bedroom are they in? I would put that time between 18 - 30 minutes.

(LOL)

I suppose the presumption is that this article is referring to sex between and a man and a woman. In which case, the myth that women want sex to go on seemingly indefinitely is just that... a complete MYTH!

I'm an (how should I put this delicately) OVER-achiever (when necessary) to outlast my wife - I have absolutely no problem waiting. The problem is she's "been there, done that" a long time while I'm waiting for her to "finish." She's probably got her shopping list going on in her head while she waits for me to realize she's through!

OMG! Too funny!!(wink)

REALITY CHECK.......

Great sex is in the mind not the sexual organs. Taking the time to build up that excitment with your what you say, the use of your hands, your lips, and your tongue is what makes the climax truly great.

If you want it over in a couple of minutes....... jack off.

I for one am very happy for this article. I've been telling my much younger girl friend these facts for a long time.

Now I have some real scientific facts to back me up...that SHE has a problem, not me!

Yeah, right. That'll work.

Like i said before there are times for short amounts of sex but building up orgasms make them best

My personal shortest time was actually the second time I had sex for some reason the first time I couldn't. It lasted like a 3 minutes, mind u my first and second time i had sex was right after each other

My longest was two hours of real sex plus foreplay time but I wouldn't wanna do anything beyond that and 2 hours was pushing me to my limits.

This article isnt about time and foreplay now.....just intercourse time. Give me hours of foreplay....3-13 minutes of intercourse is just fine. Then start the foreplay over again....... ;)
Now that's an all nighter!

I'm a firm believer in foreplay the more foreplay, the more satisfying the sex will be. say, about 35 minutes of foreplay, if you want to roleplay that fine, too. women do like the foreplay.

I REALLY THINK IT DEPENDS ON HOW LONG IT HAS BEEN SINCE THE LAST TIME. THE MORE TIME YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT IT THE BETTER IT IS,THAT IS,IF IT AIN'T TO LONG.

Oh thanks so much. We've all been wondering about your sexual history. Thanks for sharing.

Reality Check,
Read the article. They were specifically talking about intercourse, not all of the other fun activities that lead up to, or succeed intercourse. And as someone else pointed out, specifically heterosexual intercourse. you're comparing apples and oranges.

10 min or 2 hrs, if you are in real connection with one another it will last as long as it needs to. sometimes my wife have amazing short sex like 10 min. some times ebbs and peeks with both of us having several orgasms each. some times she has amazing orgasms and my are little more than ejaculations with hardly any pleasure. and some times its the other way around. take it for what it is. sometime you want gourmet, some times you want a hamburger.

I remember the best sex I ever had involved anticipation. remember the young lady very fondly, as a delicate flower waitng to be picked. She excited me to no end and when it was all over we laid next to each other trying to clear our heads and this euphoria lasted till the next day. At breakfast I mentioned the tingling in my groin and we proceeded to go another round till we were both exhausted and satisfied. We never made love agin and even though we see each other from time to time, I still notice the gleam in her eyes and the fire burning within. Its all I can do to keep from starting a affair because we're both married to really exceptional partners so we go our way with memories in hand and a smile on our faces. I can honestly say "She's my best friend forever"!
