Have you ever wondered how many minutes average couples spend having sex? According to the study "Canadian and American Sex Therapists' Perceptions of Normal and Abnormal Ejaculatory Latencies: How Long Should Intercourse Last?" not that long. The average session lasts for three to seven minutes, excluding foreplay.
"Very few people have intercourse per se [Latin for by thrust] that goes longer than 12 minutes," says sex therapist Barry W. McCarthy. If you want to maximize the time of your lovemaking, you can slow things down with "non-intercourse sex" or what others refer to as mutual stimulation. He also suggests that you and your partner switch positions or try different speed levels and thrust patterns.
So, you see, there's absolutely no reason for you to be insecure about your love life. The next time you both finish early, don’t worry–that’s normal.
