It’s okay, guys. Us ladies, we get it. We know that you always sell yourself up to get us back to your place. Your confidence is a complete farce to make us think your dick is big enough to make us quiver at the very sight of it. And let’s not forget about how your charm and kindness is supposed to lead us to think you won’t blow us off after we’ve blown you, but, in the end, you’re about as charming as my father was to my high school boyfriend. But that’s just how the tap flows, and we always knew it. Now we have some solace, because not only are you lying to us, you’re also lying to yourself.
From Randal Olson:
The average (median) time before orgasm was about 6 minutes, and ranged from a blissful 6 seconds to a marathon-paced 53 minutes. The majority of men lasted between 4 to 11 minutes, with anyone lasting longer than 21 minutes being considered an outlier.
According to the authors, the men’s estimates averaged about 1.9 minutes longer than they really were—about a 31% overestimation over the 6-minute average—which really highlights our tendency to overestimate our performance in the bedroom.
Averages don’t quite do the numbers justice on this one so I cranked out a couple more stats to put this further into perspective for you.
– 232 of the 500 participants, nearly 50%, fell in the range of 3-7 minutes.
– Only 7% of participants were outliers, lasting longer than 21 minutes.
– 0.6% lasted longer than 40 minutes.
Sorry to break it to you bud, but chances are you can’t follow through on that super hot and dirty marathon sex you promised. Feel free to perk up and try again for round two, but let’s be honest here — you probably need at least a 20 minute break to recoup and work yourself back up. And that’s only if you even want to put the effort in, which you don’t.
It’s worth noting that all of this is strictly for penis-pussy time. So whether you include foreplay into your official time to inflate your ego is up to you, but when push comes to thrust, your trip to Poundtown will probably end up being 6 minutes, round trip..
