What started out as a comparison survey of how much men from different counties exaggerate their bedroom performance became one of the biggest studies of saucydates.com, which surveyed 3,836 of its members to ask them:
- The last time you had sex (intercourse, NOT foreplay), how long did it last?
- How long would you like sex (intercourse, NOT foreplay) to last?
The questions were asked to males and females.
The responses from males and females, both globally and per country, to see any differences in the average results. Most fell within a few seconds of each other, insinuating that the men were honest, or at least the females exaggerated as much as the men.
saucydates.com also decided to see if there were any patterns with age of the respondents (vis-a-vis their claimed durability in bed).
The average answer from females internationally for “How long would you like sex to last” was 25 minutes 51 seconds. The males gave the average answer of 25 minutes 43 seconds. Therefore both males and females would like to enjoy a similar duration.
This is a great start, but the bad news for the entire planet is the average man in any country and of any age cannot get close to hers or his ideal duration. There will be exceptions that do, but on average it’s a disappointment for all. Both men and women are not reaching the duration they both desire.
Globally, there’s a noticeable trend in intercourse duration that increase with age and then later decreases. This trend is repeated for most countries.
Countries: Why is there a difference?
Here are some thoughts and discussion points on why there could be a difference between countries and ages.
There’s some anecdotal evidence to imply that Indian women may have a smaller vagina. Could this make it harder for the men to perform?
The US, Canada and Australia are all above the international average when it comes to intercourse duration (at younger ages) and all have a preference between 20% – 80% for circumcision; whereas the UK and India have circumcision rates below 20%. Could the reduced sensitivity of circumcision improve duration?
The US, Canada, Australia and the UK tend to have a more relaxed attitude to casual sex than India. With more sexual partners on average, could experience influence the results?
Age: Why is there a difference?
Are men improving in their thirties as result of having children with their partners? The woman’s vaginal tightness could vary in a way that matches the performance trends shown.
Do couples simply get better at sex with age?
Do couples in their thirties try harder and make more of an effort to satisfy each other?
“Whatever the reasons, there’s a noticeable difference in how long sexual intercourse lasts dependent on age and country. For most regions men in their thirties perform the best, 18 year olds are the worst and older men are somewhere in between. Unfortunately, both males and female are disappointed with intercourse duration,” saucydates.com stated. “Responses for duration ranged from less than a minute to an hour. Our best advice for everyone is to enjoy the time that it does last and if it’s over too soon then go for a second round. Maybe we need a follow up study on male recovery rates and frequency of sessions? (So) watch this space!”
