Sex takes 3 to 13 minutes, study says
A survey of sex therapists concluded the optimal amount of time for sexual intercourse was 3 to 13 minutes. The findings, to be published in the May issue of the Journal of Sexual Medicine, strike at the notion that endurance is the key to a great sex life.
Dr. Irwin Goldstein, editor of the Journal of Sexual Medicine, cited a four-week study of 1,500 couples in 2005 that found the median time for sexual intercourse was 7.3 minutes. (Women in the study were armed with stopwatches.)
WTF? Why not just give them a ruler and a buncha number placards like they have at the Olympics too. Don't you think it might skew the results just a weeeee bit if the woman is holding a stopwatch in her hand?
