Well, according to a new poll, all those people – I’m looking at you, Olivia Wilde – are lying. Lovehoney, a British sex toy retailer, surveyed 4,400 people and found that on average, people are only having sex for 19 minutes, 10 of which are foreplay. While 23 per cent of men surveyed said they thought sex was over too soon, only 15 per cent of women wanted it to last longer. (I told you: TOO LONG.) 52 per cent of those surveyed said that 19 minutes was the perfect amount of time for them, and 89 per cent said they have managed to orgasm at the same time at least once. 40 per cent said they orgasm at the same time as their partner at half the time.
There you have it. Rest assured that you’re definitely not the only one keeping things short and sweet.
