In the modern day of 'quickies', we want everything fast. And at times, we wonder how long should our intercourse last? Romance may seem lost and it may also seem like you're living a mechanical lifestyle. It's actually more common than you think. You might feel that your partner might not love you like he/she did when you met. It's called the honeymoon phase for a reason.
In the beginning, you can't get enough of each other. After a while though, the long love-making sessions that could last for 2-3 hours turn into short sessions of relieving stress or frustration.
Considering a normal healthy couple, scientists have found out the average duration of the coitus. 500 couples were studied for a 4-month-time period and studies were conducted regarding each of their coital experiences and the duration for the same.
There were very interesting conclusions to this experiment and here it goes.
There were definitely some interesting findings on this case study. Desire and physical connection is a very intimate topic between couples. It's when you bare yourself completely open emotionally and physically. An involvement of immense trust and love is required during the act. You get lost in each other and you don't know how much time has passed.
Not really. When it comes to foreplay along with intercourse, couples have gone till around 44 minutes for the whole act. Is that too long?
But as it turns out, going on for too much time isn't very good either. Unless, you've got your inhaler handy.
But both these parties agreed to a nearly 5 minutes of a proper satisfying time.
Dr. Brendan Zietsch calls this duration the 'intravaginal ejaculation latency time.'
The ideal duration of an average love making session should be 5.4 minutes excluding any kind of foreplay.
