Have you ever timed your orgasm?

Probably not.

You've got better things to be doing at that precise moment.

However, you might have noticed that your significant other may be enjoying the event for a bit longer than you are, or vice versa.

According to a poll conducted by The Sun and gathered online by sex-toy retailer Lovehoney, women enjoy their moment of pleasure longer than men.

The average times are as follows:

10.9 seconds for women

8.7 seconds for men.

Further findings show that for 41 per cent of women the euphoric climax lasted for 11 seconds or longer, whilst it was just 26 per cent of men who enjoyed anything above the average.

Studies of orgasms date back as far as Ancient Greece where the orgasm was seen as a good omen for conception.

Fast forward to the 1940s where US biologist Alfred Kinsey discovered that one in five women had their first climax through masturbation, whilst 5 per cent received their through explicit dreams.

By the late 20th century we had a National Orgasm Day - which is July 31st, in case you were interested in getting out the stopwatch.
