Is it true that Guys don’t last long during sex?

I always hear about stuff on the internet and other stuff that men only last a couple
Minutes during sexual intcourse, I also was told that by my roommate that he only lasted 10 seconds from one girl but I don't know if I believe that.

  • I would say that we don’t last as long as we want to.

    I’ve never exploded in a few seconds unless I was trying to—and not usually even then. But a few minutes is frequent enough, if I let myself go. I am always trying to last longer. I control my breathing, relax my muscles, close my eyes, moderate my thoughts. I don’t feel like I am out of control and can’t last—but I am always concerned about it and working at it. …and, honestly, I usually wish I could last longer. Intercourse is so wonderful, that I do not want it to stop.

    So, in my experience it isn’t as bad as all that—but endurance is a primary concern -a pre-occupation, even, - for men having sex.

  • It depends on several factors, some last long but they are rare. On average a guy last between 2-8 minutes and some even less but that also depends on several factors. But here is the kicker. This is the first orgasm. When your ready for your second go then the second and Evey extra try after the first, they will all last a lot longer. I don't mean 1 today and 2 tomorrow. I mean during one single act of sex. We can often get hard again after a few minutes, so just play around and stimulate the lady for a few minutes

  • Well I guess thats all relative. Some or even most guys dont last as long as girls need to have an orgasm, as least with just straight PiV. There are easy ways to work around that. Foreplay, positions matter or just alternatives to PiV. Maybe women just need long to orgasm? What defines long or short?
    All personal experience or what I heard from friends.

    • Your not really answering the question I asked

    • Is it true that guys dont last long during sex? Answer: compared to most women yes! It depends on what you are doing though.

    • Thankyou but here’s the next question, what’s considered to long?

  • The average time is 5 to 7 minutes. However, some guys are premature ejaculators and finish much faster. The 10 second thing is probably true. I had a guy finish as soon as he put it in. Then there’s the occasional guy who just goes and goes. It’s REALLY nice when you find that.

    • The art of being able to put it inside and edge for a long time is so important. It’s for her benefit so she can build up to climax and not feel under pressure to perform. Just to take the time to enjoy each other. And it’s good for him too because it’s a more explosive release if he edges and maintains control until he and she is ready for his release. It’s about being considerate of her needs. It’s totally possible if the guy will get to better understand his body and thresholds

    • @PositiveFlight Building stamina is obviously a good thing but it’s not everything. For instance, if he gets me off with oral and goes right into sex while I’m still sensitive down there, I’ll usually orgasm again in just a few minutes. If we start with intercourse, it takes much longer for it to build. So you can work around it if you can’t learn to hold out longer. There’s always a way.

    • Agreed. I think in the end, it’s an opportunity to learn each other’s body and be selfless. Being aware of what does it for each other and finding those ways that are most compatible. Maybe even discover something new that both didn’t know about that becomes that favorite way in which both are well satisfied in the end.

  • I have learned the art of edging. I can ejaculate in 2-3 minutes if I want, or I can control my body and pleasure her while remaining inside her for up to an hour+ before I need to release. It’s just about being considerate of her needs and learning the threshold of the male body and that point of no return. Lasting a long time is wonderful for both in the end.

    • Ok but what if you just naturally take forever, does that mean something is wrong

    • No, not necessarily that something is wrong physically. The brain is the largest sex organ. If a guy has anxiety or simply a lot on his mind, that stress can override the sensory and stimulation from copulation. Good sex requires a fine balance of physical relaxation, letting the mind go on everything and just focus on her, but not letting yourself get too overstimulated too fast. Again, focus on her and take joy in seeing her feel so amazing. Make it a goal to turn her inside/out each time. You won’t go wrong. You will find that your own pleasure will come easier and in the right timing as you master putting her needs first.

  • Some guys don't last long and all guys can technically finish quickly depending on many factors. This doesn't mean that all guys at all times finish too fast.

    • Thank goodness for sanity here.

  • I can last about as long as I want.

  • That's true, yeah. A lot of guys don't last very long the first round, but then have a stronger performance on round 2.

    • Ok but is it literally only a couple seconds? The majority of times I’ve had sex it lasted between 25-1hr+ sometimes I didn’t even bust.

    • Some guys only last a few seconds. I'm not very sensitive down there either

  • Inexperienced guys dont

    • Interesting

    • I could see that but is it really only a couple seconds, I remember the first time I had sex and that was about 15 minutes but she was also ontop most of the time but everything after that I felt like I was running a fucking marathon

    • Depends person to person

  • Sadly, the average is just a few minutes, if that.

  • the average (i guess as far as reported goes) is aboud 5 mins. plenty of guys go longer and some are quicker. it truly does vary.

  • So do some don't.

  • Unless he was just on the cusp, I doubt he lasted only 10 seconds. I probably last for about 5 minutes

  • Go fuck some guys and find out for yourself

  • When we’re younger yes

  • It depends. If you are really bad at it, you just go quick, finish and be done with it. You have to pace yourself for her enjoyment too.

    • Ok but what if you just naturally last a long time? Does that mean there’s something wrong?

    • Not inherently, but it could mean you have sensitivity issues

  • Personally I’ve gained a lot of stamina, and it actually had the opposite affect on the woman I was having sex with. Especially if I drink alcohol before hand, it can take me upwards of 45 minutes to cum.
    When I was younger I could ejaculate in less than two minutes, but I read books and listened to podcasts on how to be better in bed, and I’ve had a lot of satisfied women rave about my abilities.
    It works for me because making a woman orgasm is a huge turn on for me

  • It usually depends some do and some do not

  • I think the average man can last for 3-4 minutes. It depends really. I've lasted for over an hour several times and I've only lasted a couple of minutes several times. It really depends on how turned on he is and how into he is among other things

  • It depends on a lit of factors.

    how hot the girl is, when and how often he has came (jerking off or sex) prior, his arousal, his ability to pace, etc

  • For some yeah because they don’t have control over it yet and get to excited too quick. There are ways to last longer but takes practice

  • Yeah, I mean most girl exaggerate the time but a lot of guys don't last very long in bed. Girls take longer to cum so that could play a factor but guys typically cum in a very short time unless they're highly experienced.

  • Very true
