AMSTERDAM — A unique Dutch study has lifted the sheets on how long on average it takes before a man climaxes while making love to a woman — and Dutch men ranked below average.
The study found that Dutch men ejaculate on average five minutes and six seconds after their penis is inserted into a woman's vagina.
But according to the Utrecht University academic who conducted the study, Marcel Waldinger, the international average is not much longer: 5 minutes and 24 seconds.
"Sexual events were stopwatch-timed over a four-week period and recorded," Waldinger said.
Some 500 couples participated in the study and the results found that English men on average take 7.6 minutes to ejaculate.
They were followed by men in the US (7.0 minutes), Spain (5.8) and the Netherlands (5.1). Men in Turkey lasted just 3.7 minutes. There were no contestants from legendary lovemaking countries France or Italy.
Waldinger's research is part of wider investigations into premature ejaculation and is being published this week in the June issue of the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
His research is the first large-scale epidemiological study of the intra-vaginal ejaculation latency time (IELT), a term that should be self-explanatory.
For the record, the shortest time recorded was 30 seconds and the longest 44 minutes. The nationalities of those men were not published.
