Should time even be a measurement of success in the sack? So what's the truth of the matter? Here, with help from Wincze, are just the facts. Most Men Last from 1 to 10 Minutes The duration of sex has been studied a lot. Both masturbation and vaginal sex have been timed and surveyed, and the results fall within a similar, and wide, range.
Most sexual encounters, from the time of penetration to orgasm, last from one to 10 minutes. Wincze says, given all the studies that have contributed to this estimate, this range encompasses about 90 percent of the male population. The therapists said that three to seven minutes was "adequate" and seven to 13 was "desirable.
According to a story by Nerve , the Spreadsheets app recorded average durations that lasted from 1: This app does not account for foreplay. He has also treated men who orgasm before sex even starts. This is a rare situation and often requires medication.
Foreplay Should Count Research has shown that women want more foreplay and afterplay. There are biological reasons for this. It takes women time to lubricate and for their erectile tissues to engorge. Because women generally react to stimulation differently than men — men can usually get more turned on by just visuals— their arousal process tends to take longer to really get going.
It's also important to know that, as women become aroused, their vagina lengthens on the inside, which is why rushing through things can actually be painful. In that case, consider speaking with a specialist in male sexual health or a sex therapist. But there's a catch. One Way to Last Longer? Be More Adventurous There is at least one evidence-based approach to fostering lengthier sex that also follows the enjoyment-first philosophy.
They found that people who reported sexual activity that included acts beyond the basics, such as oral and masturbation, also reported longer sex sessions than people who had mainly vaginal sex.
Age was not a factor. This is actually telling you, with science, that being more adventurous in your sex life can make you last longer.
Wincze is in complete agreement with this idea. Advice doesn't get much better than that.
