sex in numbers 2Sex statistics is a very interesting sphere for doctors, sexologists and other scientists.

Female sexual excitement

The statistics say that a woman needs at least 20 minutes to reach sexual excitement. But there’re women for whom 10-15 minutes are good.


According to research foreplay usually takes on average 11-13 minutes. It’s well-known that sometimes people can manage it without foreplay, while others on the contrary try to make it longer. By the way there’s an opinion that long foreplay leads to partners coming very soon.

The sweet process of having sex

A sexual intercourse lasts on average for 2 to 10 minutes. The Russians usually make love to their partners 20-30 seconds longer than Americans.

The longest sexual intercourse in the history lasted for… 15 hours. This record is held by American actress of the 1930s –1940s. Mae West had the reputation of the sex symbol. She set that record together with her lover Ted. Before they started she said: “We’ll be having sex longer than all the living beings on Earth.” And she redeemed her promise.

A little about orgasm

It’s considered that women and men have the same orgasm duration – from 3 to 8 seconds.

The longest orgasm for women possible is about 43 seconds. At least William Masters and Virginia Johnson, who pioneered research into the nature of human sexual response and the diagnosis and treatment of sexual disorders and dysfunctions from 1957 until the 1990s, claimed so.

There’s also a notion of multiple orgasm. Some women can experience up to 3 orgasms an hour. And here are some records too.

Once Californian scientists William Hartman and Marilyn Fitan, who have devoted their lives to the studying of multiple orgasms, conducted an experiment, in which more than 750 people took part… During the experiment which lasted for more than 10 000 hours it was discovered that the biggest number of orgasms during one hour is 134 for women and only 16 ones for men!
