This is a very intimate topic and like many things in this world everything’s subjective, but scientists asked the question: how long does the ideal act of love last?
By using questionnaires and mathematical formulas, scientists came to the conclusion that the perfect sex act lasts 5.4 minutes.
However, this time only includes the act itself, meaning only the physiological contact, excluding foreplay, kisses and other individual stuff.
500 couples took part in this research. They pressed a button when they began making love and pressed it again after ejaculation. The results showed that sex could last anywhere from 33 seconds to 44 minutes, but the average act lasts about 5 minutes.
“What’s interesting is that the older the couple, the shorter they make love, however the lovemaking itself was of a higher quality, since they have more experience” – the scientists add.
