If you are hoping to impress your friends with your sexual knowledge, then this is the blog for you. I take a look at some of the surprising sex statistics you’ll want to read, so you know just how to impress people in conversation!

Time for sex

Most of us already know that we don’t spend enough time on foreplay. We’d rather turn her on quick instead of taking the time to slowly tease her and bring her to orgasm before we even start to fuck.

It’s the same with sex. We’d rather rush through it than take the time to enjoy it, and it seems that the average sex session lasts less than ten minutes.

One study found that most people spend just 7.3 minutes in bed… while 43% of sessions are over in two minutes!

Cigarettes are so last decade

The media has lead many of us to believe that, when sex is over, a lot of people will reach for the cigarettes. They’ll bathe in the post-sex glow with their partner, spark one up, and sit there in silence while smoking.

It turns out that we don’t do that any more. Instead, we’ll reach for our smartphones to try and catch up on anything that we’ve missed on social media.

Some studies have suggested that 36% of people under the age of 35 will pick up their phone to check in on social media. What is more shocking, however, is that 1 in 10 will be tempted to check in the middle of the act! Yikes.

The length of an orgasm

When it comes to sex, we already know that it takes a little more for women to get off. Many of us struggle to achieve orgasm through penetrative sex alone, and so clitoral stimulation is essential.

But did you know that women get to enjoy longer orgasms than men? It’s true. The male orgasm is over a lot quicker than the female one, so while we might not get them as often, we get to enjoy them for a lot longer.

The average male orgasm is just six seconds long. The female orgasm? A whopping twenty seconds. I don’t know about you, but I am totally happy with that!

Faking it

Achieving orgasm can be a real challenge for a lot of women. As a result, faking it becomes a common issue. Instead of simply opening up to our partner about the problem we’ll fake an orgasm to make them feel better and to end sex sooner.

But just how many women fake it? The numbers are shockingly high. It seems that around 80% of women will fake it in the bedroom.

The best solution to resolving any orgasm problems is to just sit and talk to your partner. Instead of pretending everything is okay, you can tell them what is going on and discuss the issue. It’ll help to fix it and so you can both enjoy better sex.
