Durex Sex Study Bummer: 50 Percent Of Men And Women Are Unhappy With Duration Of Their Bedroom Trysts

Posted: Updated:

Let's talk about sex, shall we?

Durex, the popular condom brand, recently decided to probe Americans' thoughts on sex and intimacy, conducting a national sex survey.

It polled 1,000 adults, married and single, asking intimate questions about how satisfied they were with their sexual experiences.

The results are, well, a bit of a downer. A full 50 percent of people aren't pleased with the duration of their intercourse. Some people crave longer sex. Some, on the other hand, want more quickies.

In some ways, the survey confirmed what we already know: When it comes to sex, different things work for different people. The best way to improve satisfaction is to talk to your partner about what you want. Not exactly news, just as it wasn't terribly earth-shattering when another recent survey confirmed that women enjoy sex just as much as men do.

However, the Durex study did offer some interesting insight on gender differences when it comes to fantasy.

Read on for five fun facts about Americans' sex lives from the survey:
