Americans 'unsatisfied with sex duration'

People in the US have expressed dissatisfaction regarding the duration of sex with their partners.

According to a new survey from Durex condoms, around half of those questioned are not content with the time spent getting naughty between the sheets.

The study revealed 37 per cent of respondents would like their bedroom antics to last longer, while 14 per cent feel their intimate moments are too lengthy.

As a result, 66 per cent of women and 77 per cent of men have tried different techniques in order to change the speed at which their love making draws to a close.

Kevin Harshaw, marketing director of personal care at Reckitt Benckiser, which is the parent company of Durex, claimed the revelations are nothing new.

Mr Harshaw stated: "This gap in satisfaction is something that has been occurring forever."

The investigation also revealed many couples have difficulty climaxing at the same time, with 46 per cent of those quizzed claiming they have more chance of seeing the mythical creature Big Foot than they do of achieving this.
