In the study, researchers collected information on sexual activity 432 pairs. The participants themselves provided the necessary data using a mobile app. Only at the disposal of scientists was information about more than two thousand sexual acts. As it turned out, on average, they lasted about 12 minutes, but in this case one of the partners was their sex life not satisfied. At the same time, if the sex lasted for about one and a half times longer, this was enough for the both participants.

Experts note that the duration of sexual intercourse was not the only factor determining the level of satisfaction of study participants with their personal lives. Among other factors, the researchers called a sense of intimacy with the partner, as well as the selection of positions for sex.

A number of studies conducted last year, showed quite similar results. In particular, a group of scientists from the University of Kentucky conducted a survey that showed that the average duration of intercourse to date is about 10 minutes, however, the “optimal” duration of sex, both women and men find 20 minutes. By the way, according to the results of the same survey, 55 percent of women and 30.7 percent of men at least once faked an orgasm, and 25% of men and 8.7 percent of women admitted that they engaged in daily self-love.

While another study suggests that women with traditional sexual orientation, in most cases, can reach orgasm in 30 minutes, if you include it as foreplay, and sexual intercourse.
