It’s one of earth’s greatest unanswered questions – why are we here? Who am I? How long should I last in bed?

In the name of men and women everywhere, a new study in America has investigated into this age-old question to find out just where we stand on the subject, Fusion reports.

The survey was conducted by Kristen Mark, the director of the Sexual Health Promotion Lab at the University of Kentucky, and it included more than 14,400 responses from men and women.

Entertainingly entitled The Penis Perception Study, its aim was to explore the attitudes about male and female functioning, and was funded by a company that makes treatments for premature ejaculation (coincidence?).

And the results were pretty indisputable. Both men and women wished their sex sessions would last twice as long.

On average, men reported their sessions lasted 10 minutes, but wished it would last 20. And women agreed.

According to Fusion, average times are anywhere between 3 to 8 minutes, but a 2008 study from American university Penn State found that the ‘desirable’ sex time was nearer 13 minutes.

And along with finding an answer to the age-old question, Mark’s team also found that 55% of women had faked an orgasm – but so had 30.7% of men.

So there you have it. If you want sex to last twice as long, don’t go running straight for the finish line.
