Sex is different for everyone. Your enjoyment is what matters, not trying to compete with some so-called average. But hey, a little experimentation never hurt anybody. Who knows, maybe you’ll find you and your partner love to slow things down…or speed them up.

So how long does a typical session last sex for most people? On average, 28 minutes according to a recent survey of 2,000 adults by SKYN condoms.

Holly Richmond, PhD, a certified sex therapist, said that number seems very high. She said nine 12 minutes is probably more accurate to how long reports, on average.

That said, Richmond also points out that surveys like this can be difficult because everyone has their own definition of sex. Some people who responded could have included in their foreplay response, while others thought the matter strictly meant penetration. (A representative of said condoms Skyn ​​question focused on penetration.)

A previous investigation by the company LoveHoney sex toy came with a much closer time of Richmond. The company surveyed 4,400 customers and found that most heterosexual couples, sex lasts 19 minutes on average, and it consisted of 10 minutes of foreplay and actual intercourse nine minutes.

But before you start to worry about whether your sex life lives in the middle, said Richmond consider a few things. “In sex, there is not really a normal life,” she said. “Sexuality is so diverse, and every individual is different. I encourage people to think about the unique way of their own sexuality. It makes no sense to put us in a box with an investigation. ”

Also, do not let that fool you porn. Richmond called “porn stars sex Olympic athletes. “They might look like they may last forever, but it’s just not realistic.

The important thing is that you are satisfied with your sex life. If you relaxed and your partner and end of each session to feel connected, it does not matter how long it lasted all.

But if you already think your time in the bag is too short and you are not satisfied, change your routine a little. “I’m a big fan of quickies, especially for parents with young children or couples who are overworked and exhausted just work,” says Richmond.

It is also a time and a place for the development of the action. “When you get a day or a few hours you just try to be really sensual in the way you think about sex,” she said. “Bring sexuality and erotica in it, not only the penetration. ”
