A WatchThat’s the question, and Dr. Eric Corty wanted to know. So he asked a number of folks at the Society for Sex Therapy and Research, received 34 responses, and found that the most desirable duration lasts between 7-13 minutes. Which seems to fit well with a study in 2005 which found that the median time for sex was just over 7 minutes.

Of course, those queried were likely a highly biased group.  And, I have to imagine things like, profession and age were not controlled for, but I don’t really know because I can’t see the study without paying for it.  And, because this is still a blog written on my spare time, there’s no budget for this sort of thing.

Now, I’m not saying go out and see for yourselves, but hey, if you have other ideas of “best” durations, feel free to write in a comment.
