Hey bros, have you ever wondered if there’s a magic number for how long you should engage in sex? You’re not alone! After a heated debate over a few cold beers (and spiced suya, of course) at our last guys’ night out, we decided to settle the matter once and for all – with the help of science.
So, let’s dive into this spicy topic – how long and how short is too short during sex? We know you’re curious, gentlemen, so buckle up, and let’s unravel this mystery together.
A study guide into the matter
There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as no two couples are the same. However, science does offer some guidance on the subject. A study by the Journal of Sexual Medicine analyzed the time it takes for heterosexual American and Canadian couples to reach their grand finale during sex.
The study discovered that the average length of an entire sexual encounter is around 5.4 minutes! Do you find this shocking, heart-warming, or reassuring? We know you’re a proud Nigerian man, but hey, it’s all about the quality of the moment, right?
Of course, this is just an average. The same study found that the range of these encounters goes from a speedy 33 seconds up to a marathon-like 44 minutes! Now that’s some impressive endurance! But don’t worry if you don’t fall into that latter category – you’re still giving us some major “superman” vibes.
Performance over pleasure is a big no
Remember, gentlemen, it’s essential not to put too much pressure on yourselves. Setting unrealistic expectations can lead to performance anxiety instead of pleasure. Communicate with your partners and find out what works best for both of you. If you need more time, take it! And if you’re satisfied with a quick and passionate rendezvous, go for it!
The perfect time is individually based
So, to recap: Science says that the average time for sex is 5.4 minutes, but individual encounters can range from 33 seconds to 44 minutes. Ultimately, finding the perfect balance that works for you and your partner is crucial.
It’s time to stop obsessing over minutes and numbers and focus on the quality of the time spent together. Good sex isn’t about being the fastest or the longest; it’s about you and your partner being the most connected and satisfied! So, get out there and keep exploring.
More importantly, if you think you may have any sexual health issues, such as erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation, then don’t be embarrassed and suffer in silence. Get medical assistance without delay from a doctor, so that you can continue on your sexual journey with your best foot forward. Don’t let anything stop your exploration.
