Experts say sex lasting more than 13 minutes is “too long” and that a lightning encounter of only 3-7 minutes is quite adequate.

A survey of 50 members of the Society for Sex Therapy and Research, an industry group for sex counsellors drawing in a variety of “psychologists, physicians, social workers, marriage/family therapists and nurses,” asked them what they considered the ideal length for a sexual encounter to be.

They mostly indicated that sex lasting from 3-7 minutes was “adequate,” and from 7-13 minutes “desirable.” However, more than 13 minutes was “too long.”

They did concede that sex lasting only 1-2 minutes was “too short.”

A psychology professor with the group explains that he hopes the results will encourage couples not to think there is anything wrong with the most pathetically fleeting of encounters:

“Today’s popular culture has reinforced stereotypes about sexual activity.

Many men and women seem to believe the fantasy of… all-night-long intercourse.

This seems a situation ripe for disappointment and dissatisfaction.

We hope this survey will dispel fantasies and encourage men and women with realistic data.”

Advice sure to keep people happy and content with their sex lives, and away from expensive counselling services.

    Are these doctors retarded? And has the whole comment section got retarded. Who the hell here thinks 7 minutes is enough? Have any of you actually been with a damn women? Because if you honestly say 7 minutes is enough you have to be a virgin. EVERY women I met or everyone women I heard from my friend ALWAYS needs more time to finish then only 20 minutes.

    These test have to be done by old scientist/researchers in their 50's that want to cum just by looking at a women.

    Are you people so self deluded that you believe this crap? Go to the damn site and read the comments their also. No one is buying this bullshit. A young women WILL NEVER be pleased in 7 minutes.

    Just do it for adequate time if you know better.

    It's easy to get annoyed when reading that so many men are so fucking clueless about pleasing women but they want to act macho and say stupid shit.

    These comments are so hilarious today!

    Hmmm, I thought I heard somewhere that it takes about 20 minutes on average for a woman to reach orgasm. Apparently the experts don't believe in mutual satisfaction.

    Long time sex is just painful and kind of boring. No matter how much you move aroudn to change the way your junk plows her, or let her take the top to control the speed so you don't hammer away like a moron, it can get dull.

    You all know there is no right answer here, yes? Some couples like foreplay that gets her engines running and then straight to oral to get her off, then a few minutes or less for him to jackhammer away and shoot his load. Done. Happy. Others want hours of foreplay, then oral, then no intercourse as both have had their O. Some like it on top, some want it from behind. Many girls can not even have an O from pure intercourse as there are no nerves inside the vag, past the first few inches. Unless you hit her cervix, then you get a yelp.

    When some people dress up as animals to yiff, others enjoy clevland steamers and yet more with leather or toys or more than two people at once, there IS no norm. You and your partner do what feels good and leaves you both happy. Be it an all nighter with many sessions or a quick minute boom pop.

    No one can adequately quantify when you should climax. All bullshit like this really does add tension to something that's supposed to make you relax. So if you are you partner are happy with 2-3 minutes of fucking, cool! If you're a marathon fucker with a marathon partner, bust out the lube and pound it flat. Plus this is a survey of only 50 people, hardly indicative of the entire sexual world.

    Penetration is the least important part of making love to a woman. Most non-virgins will appreciate this survey.

    Indeed my friend. The secret is not to take it like a 100m dash to the finish line but to take it like a marathon.

    Could you even sit comfortably after 4 hours? My best mark was close to 3 hours and the following day I couldn't pee without my swollen member making me writhe in pain.

    2-5min of oral (each partner)(not including 69)
    3-6min for each position

    about 45 minutes overall

    that is ideal for me

    Why do guys do this? Changing positions a million times is annoying as hell. It takes longer for girls to build up and enjoy themselves and the guy wants to flip her around ever few minutes. SO not attractive.

    Well, then I'm doomed.
    My "preliminars" requires from 20 to 40 minutes... sex itself lasts for 30 minutes per round, with 2 or 3 rounds in most cases...

    Well, according to those guys, I'm a sex beast. Nice.

    I bet thats all the "experts" could muster, thus that being the "adequate" time. I've had long outstanding sex before, longer is better if you can last that long. Theres obviously a minute, but 15 minutes doesn't cut it in my book.

    Some real sex noobs in here with some unhappy partners. Not all of ya obviously, but some… wow. Don’t you know anything? Speaking to the noobs here. Time means absolutely nothing when it comes to erotic play. Every chick is different and what you think you know and think you are an expert at is crap. I’ve had girls that wanted their nipples bit. Hard. And I’ve had girls that didn’t want their nipples touched at all. -_- Some liked when the guy (or girl) went straight to the clit. Others want a whole body lick down. Some couples that have been together for a long time can hold off for a bit, then have a quick blast session where both have their O and are done. Other couples do it every day and can make it last as long as they feel like it.

    Simple fact is, and I have seen it posted here numerous times, as long as both parties ‘finish’, be it a minute or an hour, it’s good stuff. Ask a woman what is better sex… eight hours or playing and boning and no O, or two minutes of know how that gets her off and on the O train? A guy is happy when he cums. A few seconds, an hour, a day, it doesn’t matter. When you shoot your load, that’s payday and feels just as great at the ten second mark as it does at the hour mark.

    But when it comes to sex, on a web forum, everyone is an expert and everyone makes shit up and that’s probably the only true facts any of us can agree on.

    All night isn't a fantasy. It's the result of several sessions of 3-7 min. sex.
    1. Bust-a-nut
    2. Relax
    3. Repeat first 2 steps all night
    4. ???
    5. Profit!!!

    With preliminaries it lasts some 30 minutes before the interest dies down.

    Intercourse itself however, doesn't really go above 5 minutes.

    If after all the fondling, kissing and oral sex you aren't very aroused and ready to pop soon, then truth be told you are doing something very wrong.
    There's really no way around it.

    I'd be very surprised if you could make a girl orgasm in 3-7 minutes. Whats good for me and my partner is 15-45 minutes. Depends on where and when of course.

    No kidding. I've had my girl go off in minutes. Like a dman commercial break. But it's rare. Then again, I've had it take a good hour. -_- And once, we were both about to go at the same time, having played and worked it and whatnot to that point, only to have it ruined by one of the cats jumping on the bed and letting loose a giant hairball right into her hair. Ouch. Mood killer.

    Well using condoms of varying thickness can easily increase endurance per 'session' be reducing sensation. Of course, you are then limited by how many condoms you happen to have on you each night.

    Fun size multipacks!

    That being said, being in in a trusting relationship with a girlfriend on the pill is a wonderful experience... as long as she is reliable.

    hahah...oh wait, you're serious? If so, coming from a chick, learn our bodies fool. We don't like when you jackhammer away and think you're god because, trust us, we've had better.

    The little trooper is the last thing I'm worried about when I'm into sex. Same with msot of my friends. It is cute tho, that you put so much importance on it.

    poor little fella. Remember, lesbians aren't just enjoying it from something semi-hard in them. It's about the mouth and the fingers and the know how. Stick it in and pound away is nothing.

    Some of these men watch too much porn. They think just pumping away is pleasurable for the girl.

    It's not.

    People who think females enjoy being jackhammered non stop for more than 7 minutes are virgins, or have lying girlfriends.

    Stop trying to act macho, no one likes their vagina raw from you being an idiot that just mimics porn.

    Anyone who thinks just using his dick on a woman is good enough is just thinking about his own pleasure. He's trying to convince himself that's a good thing so he doesn't have to actually make her feel good. I'd kick his ass out of bed.

    Are you seriously suggesting all women can achieve orgasm through penile-vaginal intercourse? Or did I incorrectly assume you meant "peak"?
