How Do Her Numbers Compare?

From number of partners to how often she thinks about sex, here's how her numbers stack up against your own.

9. How long does sex last?

Want it to last longer? Step up your foreplay game. Australian researchers compared how long different sexual practices lasted, and actual intercourse takes up less than a third of the entire experience.

Basic sexual encounter (involving mainly kissing, cuddling, stroking one's partner and being stroked, and vaginal intercourse): 16 minutes

Vaginal intercourse (lower levels of kissing, cuddling, and stroking): 8.5 minutes

Basic sexual encounter plus oral sex: 26 minutes

All assessed sexual practices (all sexual behaviors included in the survey): 29 minutes

Using lubricant: 40%
Having sex someplace new: 36%

12. Does she use toys?

Threesomes are getting a little more popular with the ladies these days—that is, when the third party is a battery-operated toy.  A whopping 72 percent of people would be willing to use a vibrator with their partner to shake up the mix.
