Sex. Sex sex sex. All everyone talks about these days, right? Though, by these days I mean since I became old enough to understand what it was, and well what else is there to talk about when youre an adult? Rent? Bills?
Ill stick to sex.
The duration of the deed, to be specific. Some people enjoy doing the horizontal dirty for hours at a time, and others are lucky if they can manage a whole minute. But science has now decided to wade in on the issue, in true form.
And whats the magic number? 5.4 minutes. So we can basically round that down to 5 minutes, right?
Dr Brendan Zietsch from the University of Queensland did a study of 500 couples, all armed with a stopwatch and asked them to time the magical deed.
“If you’re a non-scientist, you might have once asked yourself, propped against the bedhead after disappointingly quick intercourse, how long does sex ‘normally’ last?
A scientist, though, would phrase the same question in an almost comically obscure way: What is the mean intravaginal ejaculation latency time?
Ooh, talk science to me!
The study excluded foreplay, and only timed the actual you know, P in V action.
Which is handy, pardon the pun, bearing in mind how time consuming foreplay can be. That’s not to say it isnt a worthwhile investment, though.
Interestingly, his research also explored conventional wisdom regarding penile sensitivity and its relationship to staying power in the sack
Basically, does age make you last longer?
And the answer was no, older men werent able to last any longer than younger ones. There was also no difference seen when the bloke was circumcised, or wore a condom. So there are three myths banished already.
There we go. Sexy scientific info.
