Today is National Sex Day -- This is exactly how long sex should last
Today is National Sex Day – and in celebration of the annual event, it’s been revealed how long sex should last.
Online sex toy retailer Lovehoney conducted a survey to find out the ideal amount of time most people would like to spend between the sheets.
After the results were averaged, 30 minutes was declared the optimum length of time.
The survey of 4,400 people revealed that half of couples (52 percent) are happy with that duration but sex is over too soon for 23 percent of men and 15 percent of women.
It also showed that many settle for quickies, failing to make time for a proper intimate session 21 percent of the time.
Sex for most typically couples lasts for just 19 minutes, broken down by ten minutes of foreplay and nine minutes of intercourse.
The dream 30-minute time might be a source of frustration for some couples though.
