Is sex a marathon or a sprint?
Georgians seem to be short track specialists according to a new compilation of copulation chronology, which suggests the average roll in the hay here takes a mere 2 minutes and 7 seconds.
Yes, Billy Bragg, it is still possible to make a baby in less time than it takes to make a cup of tea.
How did researchers get their numbers?
According to Nerve.com, a website that may not be safe for work according to the content filter I just bypassed, the info came from “early adopters” of a mobile app that uses your phones accelerometer, microphone and hopefully not camera to monitor “duration, thrusts, and decibel peak.”
Is it just me, or does everything seem way more complicated and less private than it used to be?
Anyway, 10,000 people apparently wanted to share that sort of info with the public and we now know New Mexico, with an average time of 7 minutes and 1 second, is home of coital ironmen and women.
How long should sex (not including foreplay, whatever that is) last?
Therapists suggest “adequate” intercourse lasts from 3 to 7 minutes, so Georgians have some work to do. “Desirable” sex last from 7 to 13 minutes, but anything longer than 10 minutes may be considered “too long.”
[Insert "too long" joke here.]
Georgia is ranked 47th out of 50 states and Washington, D.C.
If you exclude states where temperatures often punish the naked, we are dead last.
I have some theories on why we fared so poorly:
OK, maybe I don’t have any valid theories, but it seems strange New Mexico residents have sex 420 percent longer than people in Alaska. There’s no way the numbers should be that different.
Or maybe Georgians all have SADD — Sexual Attention Deficit Disorder. Is there a pill for that?
