Sex: Get the Statistics

It’s completely normal to wonder how you measure up in the bedroom. Most guys don’t discuss personal details with their mates, so you never know whether you’re average, or if you’re off the scale. Another problem is that guys often exaggerate, which might make you feel inadequate about your own body and moves. Here are some of the statistics, so you’ll know which of your friends could be telling porkies! The escorts London has to offer are particularly clued up on this subject too.

On average, intercourse lasts about 7 minutes (not including foreplay). Most men find it hard to last much longer than this, so don’t worry yourself by trying to have an hour long marathon. A large number of men ejaculate within two minutes of penetration. If you force yourself to hold back and carry on for too long, you might find it hard to finally ejaculate and could take the enjoyment out of sex. Of course, it’s not ideal for your partner if it’s all over in 20 seconds — if you find it difficult to hold out, you could try stopping for a while to pleasure her in other ways, such as going down on her, then get back to intercourse when you’re ready. Mixing it up could make it better for both of you.

Premature ejaculation is a very common problem, but it’s rarely spoken about. In fact, it affects between 24% and 27% of men. If you feel that you have this problem, speak to your doctor for advice. Erectile dysfunction has been brought to public attention by the success and popularity of Viagra; it affects 10 to 12% of men. If it’s happened to you a few times, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a physical problem; it could just be nerves, or that you’ve had too much to drink.

We’ve all heard of women faking orgasms, but never believe it’s happened to us. However, a whopping 48% of women have admitted to faking an orgasm at least once in their lives — that’s quite a high number! When they do climax, a woman’s orgasm lasts for 5 to 8 seconds, compared to the 3 to 5 seconds enjoyed by men.

Most women rate personal hygiene above penis size, so as long as you’re freshly showered when she goes down there, she’ll be happy. Most of the nerve endings contributing to a woman’s orgasm are inside the first 2 inches of her vagina, so you don’t need to be above average to stimulate her. The average size for an erect penis is between 5 and 6 inches, though it does vary. Don’t get hung up on the size of yours; it’s what you can do with it that counts!
