The Doctors all agree that sex is a very important part of living a healthy life. Model and actress Molly Sims joins The Doctors to discuss the steamy question…Just how long should intercourse last?
Dr. Brendan Zietsch, a psychologist from the University of Queensland, surveyed 500 couples to find the average time couples have intercourse from all different countries all over the world. The study found that penetration can last anywhere from 33 seconds to 44 minutes. But what was the average time across the board? The answer shocked The Doctors.
Dr. Zietsch found the average time for a sexual session was five minutes and four seconds, not including foreplay. This means that if you line up 500 couples from shortest to longest sex, the middle couple goes for an average of 5.4 minutes each time they do it.
Some countries reported shorter romps and others had long healthy times. For instance in Turkey the sex times tended to be significantly shorter, clocking in at 3.7 minutes than couples from other countries like the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. Another surprising finding was that the older the couple, the shorter the sex.
While the average time seems a little short to The Doctors, ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork points out that premature ejaculation is the most common male sexual dysfunction and it’s a legitimate problem for a lot of men. If you are concerned you may suffer from that, please consult your doctor.
Both Dr. Ashton and actress Molly Simms agree… The longer the foreplay, the better the main event. So don't let the actual time of sex dictate how long you actually spend between the sheets.
