A rather specific 13.46 minutes of sexual activity, apparently. Start your timers.
Over the course of eight weeks, 645 women with an average age of 30 used a stopwatch to measure how long it took to go from the start of sexual activity to having an orgasm. The times ranged between 12.76 minutes to 14.06 minutes, although 17% of the women studied never experienced an orgasm.
As you might expect, regular old penetrative sex wasn’t the most effective path to a female climax. Only 31.4% of the women who took part orgasmed due just to penetration. Oral and other forms of stimulation are far more important when it comes to getting off.
How long women want sex to last?
But according to sex therapists surveyed in a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the ideal duration for vaginal intercourse is between seven and 13 minutes. Between one and two minutes is “too short,” three to seven minutes is “adequate,” and 10 to 30 minutes is “too long.” Anything between three and 13 minutes is considered typical, though.
It's not easy for women to reach orgasm
Orgasm get better with age
With age comes more confidence and trust in the bedroom, which can allow a woman to relax more and truly enjoy their orgasm.
