Turns out it doesn't have to be all night long!

A survey was carried out by asking nearly 4,000 people about how long they wanted sex to last for, and the result that came back was just under half an hour.

Women answered around 25 minutes and 51 seconds while men gave an average answer of 25 minutes and 43 seconds.

Finishing eight seconds too early it seems...

The poll also displayed that the average man in any country surveyed doesn't last that long and that the duration of sex increased with age before decreasing again.

The country which men lasted the longest was the United States.

Last year, researchers at Penn State University in the States found that sex which lasted longer than half an hour was; "a situation ripe for disappointment and dissatisfaction."

Maybe it's a wise decision to not go over the 30 min mark then (unless you know that your partner likes it that long...)

Their study estimated that peoples preferred amount of time for intercourse was 7-13 minutes

So at the end of this, it really differs from each and every person.

We guess the opinion which is the most important will be your partner's preference... not a survey average!
