  1. jessica Says:

    i think it should last atleast 20mins

  2. trillie Says:

    Where is the “sometimes 5 minutes is great, sometimes 40 minutes is not enough” option? :o )

  3. Madamoiselle L Says:

    This is hard to answer. My Man and I do not follow a “foreplay, intercourse, resolution” protocol when we have sex.

    We may start out with hugging and kissing or start out with one of us surprising and then assaulting the other with their mouth or a toy. We may progress to oral sex, or manual stimulation or a combination. We may have “intercourse” for a few minutes, then go back to oral sex, “69″ (any body have a better word for this? Pros use “double French” but most people don’t know what this is.) Then some toy play, then, maybe anal last, or with a nice warm wash cloth in the room who knows?

    We rarely go to intercourse and just stay there.

    As a rule, sex lasts, for us between one and two hours. We occasionally have a quickie in the morning, or very late at night, if one of us wakes up horny.

    I really can’t answer the question, though, as our repertoire is not linear.

    Trillie and Madamoiselle: Apologies, we know that a multiple-choice poll can’t possibly capture all the intricacies of sex. That’s what this comment section is for. :-) Trillie, we suppose you could choose the number for the kind of sex you have most often. Or you could just abstain and vote with sentences in the comment section, as you did.

    Madamoiselle: When you say “pros use ‘double French’” do you mean 69 professionals say this? And how does one become qualified? Or are you referring to sex workers? Just curious! In the meantime, perhaps we should hold a contest to rename the 69…

  5. Madamoiselle L Says:

    It’s all good, EM&Lo! :) You all know I use the comment section.

    Y’all asked me: “Madamoiselle: When you say ‚Äúpros use ‚Äėdouble French‚Äô‚ÄĚ do you mean 69 professionals say this? And how does one become qualified? Or are you referring to sex workers?”

    I was referring to sex worker terms. Often, in our area, “Single French” is fellatio, and “Double French” refers to 69 or other ways of both getting oral sex (or even one at a time) at the same time.

    Something really bugs me about the term “69″ maybe it was the way High School boys misused it when I was a kid (some few boys thought it just meant “sex” and too many people use the numbers, while snickering, in their hotmail accounts, also) But, yes, we need a new term for it.

  6. Madamoiselle L Says:

    UG, I massacred that post. (Didn’t get a lot of sleep last night.)

    I meant to say “Single French” usually means fellatio, and “Double French” means either what is refereed to as “69″ also, Double French means both parties give and receive oral sex sometime during the Date, either at the same time, or one at a time. Yes, I was referring to terms used in our area by Sex Workers.

  7. Rolisela9 Says:

    nothing over 40 mins. then it gets too hot and you mouth is dry.. i can see sex intervels like have sex for 10 mins, then relax and go again and again all day.. but if its a 4 hour session your vajayjay is gonna be sore. lol

  8. BHEBZ Says:

    I can that sex it last an hour…coz ders a romance involve for that being a girl its nice first id being romance rather than to sex immedietly…

  9. pia Says:

    i think its best when its more than an hour. it include kissing, necking, and whatever. ha ha ha, most of all making love on a very slow motion or slow facing is the best.

  10. sammi-lee Says:

    well persaonally i hate long sex i want it to be abt the most 20 mins after tht it becomes painful & i totally lack intrest

  11. Loo Says:

    Over an hour is great, depending on the person. If you constantly change positions and keep it exciting then why settle for less. Once it gets boring though, enough is enough.

  12. Jane Says:

    My lover and me don’t have a rigid sex routine. Sometimes we plan for an exciting evening, sometimes we’re really spontaneous. It helps to have an active imagination and a willingness to explore new things (without going to extremes)! We just basically want to please each other while making our own needs met. It can be anywhere from 5 min. to an hour and it’s almost always incredible!

  13. sasha Says:

    Well my biyfriend is a quick 5 minute man, he never wants to kiss before or anything.I don’t know why though. But, I think it should be like 30 minutes i mean out a little work in it would ya!

  14. Ms.Hiney Says:

    My lover ad I usually spend around thirty minutes ‘playing’, usually fitting it in between our work schedules. This time encompasses both penile penetration as well as foreplay. He used to be quite the giving lover but now I’ve spoiled him so I take what I can get, I’m rambling… But my point being that I think the answer to this question is very relative, and not very easily answered with an A. ,B. ,or C.

  15. Lovin' in KS Says:

    You can set a clock by my fiance and I’s lovemaking. Lasts 45 min, give or take a few every time. No matter if we’re “making love” or having “dirty” sex, it’s 45 min! We’ve been at it almost daily for over a year now and it’s always the same amount of time, which is just right!

  16. Elizabeth Says:

    Yeah – I am with Madamoiselle L. Honestly, we don’t really start with “foreplay” and then move to intercourse and be done. It’s all sex, and honestly, sometimes oral feels better after some intercourse. But I would say the penis-in-vagina part lasts about 30 minutes during longer sessions, 10 minutes during shorter ones. Every once in awhile we will have a marathon sex day where it’s more than that, or a super quick quickie where it’s less. But really – it’s all just sex to me…

  17. josie Says:

    -__- the first tme for me was about 5 or 6 minutes. i was utterly unsatisfied. the next guy lasted longer, but not long enough for me. maybe i’m just greedy ? :/

  18. Aimz Says:

    I personally like for sex to last more than an hour. No matter the time of day. The more times the better and the longer it lasts the more we are pleased.

  19. Vanessa Says:

    My guy and I like to go crazy for up to four hours. We incorporate oral, spanking, intercourse, bj’s, anal and all different positions. It’s amazing and mind-blowing. The best I’ve ever had! We can’t get enough! If you switch it up you don’t get sore, and of course, Ky is a life saver!

  20. TROYGIRL Says:

    I say “it” should last as long as necessary for both of us to reach satisfaction…whether 20 minutes or an hour.

  21. ebryanna Says:

    My man and I have event sex. Often it last about an 10 minutes to an hour. But we may have sex several times a night. We are not including foreplay, and mutual oral stimulation. I find it very enjoyable and exciting. Also we have different kinds of sex.. Love making, sex, and f**king the intensity and length depend on what we are doing.

  22. Em & Lo Says:

    For any new commenter on this post, we’d like to recommend that you distinguish between “sex” and “intercourse”, because sex (which can include handwork, oral, intercourse, etc) can last for more than an hour while the actual intercourse-time during that sesh might be only ten minutes. Bravo to those of you who already did so above!

  23. mandm3243 Says:

    We always have oral sex beforehand and it runs arounds 20 minutes or so.Then onto making love in and out, up and down I like it to last around 10-15 minutes.Otherwise my doodabby gets WAY too sore.
    Of course hubby wants it to last hours and he can go that long but for me NO WAY!!!!!

  24. Nay Says:

    My man and I will have intermate moments throughout the day. When we hook up, because we have already set the mood, we can go at it for about an hour or even more. I think average time is 30 minutes. This would not include foreplay.Remember now, the average sex does not always include foreplay.

  25. Madamoiselle L Says:

    What’s a “doodaby?”

    I have a LOT of sexual organs, from a vagina to a clitoris, to labia, to a perineum, to an anus, and my Man has several organs also. If I am missing one, I’d like to know. ;)

  26. Keridwyn Says:

    Madamoiselle L, I think she’s referring to her vagina.

    As for me and my boyfriend, we like to take it really slow and we take definitely over an hour for kissing, hand work, oral on both parties, and then intercourse.

    We do occasionally have quicker sex, like when we wake up in the middle of the night horny or before he leaves for work in the am, but even a quickie for us lasts at least 20 minutes!

  27. Lady J Says:

    I think it should not go beyond an hour, coz to me l normally feel like burning down there and my boybriend knows that.But l like it more when on oral sex;caresing, having his tongue on my nipples/vagina…wow its great!Everyone has his/her own ways of satisfying his/her sex.

  28. william Says:

    i love its

  29. Longtime Lover Says:

    We can make the active stuff last up to 45 mins but does it count if we fall asleep “connected”? We LOVE to do this on purpose when we are UP to it …. often results in mid-dream continuations …. WOW!
    What is this called anyway? … I can’t seem to “google” the practice!
