The average length of coitus seems a tricky thing to measure, because no one can seem to agree on how long (or short) a sesh of slick ploughing should actually be.
There are those ridiculous ‘alpha’ males with tattoos of lions and auras of Lynx and non-descript marketing degrees who pride themselves on alleged hours of cervical drilling that they – just throwing this out there – perhaps very rarely ever partake in. Then there are those rampant modern women of the wilds who just want to be f*cked. Any longer than the length of their post-coital cigarette is cutting into Netflix and actual chill time. Where is the lie? Where is the truth?
Online sex toy retailer Lovehoney surveyed approximately 4,400 of its customer base on a quest to find out about the latter. Their findings might be somewhat skewed by the fact they talked directly to people who use sex toys and maybe don’t all fit the ‘average sex-haver’ profile, but they’re interesting nonetheless, maybe even familiar to some: Frantic slamming for most of these heterosexual couples lasted 19 minutes on average, and inside those average 19 minutes was 10 minutes of foreplay and nine minutes of brutal or tender penetration.
Lovehoney’s probing inquisition also went on to ascertain that 57% of men thought sharing an orgasm is their ‘peak’ sexual experience, but only 46% of women agreed. In fact, 61% of them admitted to finding it hard to get off during any sexual activity, compared to just 24% of men.
F*ck smart, f*ck S-Mart.
