How long should you last in bed?

Are you wondering whether you are "normal" when it comes to how long you last in bed before you climax?

First off, let's admit that there are many factors that influence how long you are going to last in a particular sexual encounter.

How long you last can be affected by factors such as -

How long ago you had sex;

How attracted you are to your partner;

Your lifestyle and how healthy you are;

How your day was at work, and many more factors.

But if you're wondering whether you're "normal" most of the time, some data from Mens Clinic International reports these times:

  • 21% of men ejaculate within 50-60 seconds.
  • 62% of men ejaculate within 1-5 minutes.
  • Only 1 in 6 men last over 5 minutes.
  • Only 1 in 10 men last over 10 minutes.

These timings are, according to this research, not impacted by race or nations, or circumcision.
