Rising awareness about sexuality and increasing number of platforms to meet new people have led to young people taking time in bed seriously. The conversation around the female orgasm has also meant that women are now prioritising their satisfaction during sex even more.

While a lot of things contribute to making time between the sheets worthwhile, how long it lasts is also considered crucial. As men try to figure out just how much time intercourse should last, a study reveals precisely what women are looking for.

 

The findings of a survey showed that women across the globe would like sex to last for 25 minutes and 52 seconds. On the other hand men thought 25 minutes and 43 seconds was good enough.

Even as both men and women gave similar replies, the reality doesn’t really match up to expectations. The average male in any country and belonging to any age group wasn’t able to clock the ideal time in bed as the top time was 17 minutes and 31 seconds for men in USA who had the best staying power.
