Our poll highlights the difference between the commonly held belief that the longer the sex the better, and what really happens in the bedrooms of Australia
Australia (PRWEB) March 13, 2008
A poll conducted by online dating site Partner4Real.com has confirmed recent research out of the U.S. that three minute sex is "adequate", and 7-13 minute sex is ideal.
Over 2,000 members were polled, with an overwhelming 65 percent saying that anything over 13 minutes is too long, and that 3-7 minutes is the ideal amount of time.
Brett Smith, the Partner4real Dating and Health Expert, said that these findings reflected what most Australians would already know but would rarely admit too. "Interestingly, 25 percent of females said that while 7-13 minutes was ideal, they still expected extended foreplay. This figure dropped to 12 percent for males who preferred to reduce the amount of pre-sex activity," said Smith.
The U.S. study, published in the international Journal of Sexual Medicine, is the "first to review what the experts believe is the ideal length of time to have penetrative sex, with the random sample of Americans and Canadians labeling seven to 13 minutes most "desirable".
"Our poll highlights the difference between the commonly held belief that the longer the sex the better, and what really happens in the bedrooms of Australia," stated Smith.
The partner4real poll also found that 72 percent of males felt that they were expected to perform for longer that five minutes, a fact that Smith accepts as more a factor of peer pressure than any pressure from their partner. "This confirms what I think most of us already know, that one song on a CD was long enough, unless it was Kashmir by Led Zeppelin. Two songs was bordering on tedious," said Smith.
