That subject got you reading!

Have just slept with internet chappy, who informed me immediately prior to having sex that I should look forward to five hours of undiminished pleasure. I pointed out that five hours of it wouldn't, in my humble opinion, be particularly pleasant, but rather bloody painful, and in the end I gave him about two hours and then feigned sleep...

Anyway, it got me thinking. How long do you girls and boys think a good shag should take???

5 hours shock

I often dream of a long session of romantic love making....... Usually it's about 10 minutes 20 if I'm lucky!!! But it's normally always good grin

I think I would get a bit bored after 1/2 hour max, foreplay included in that. Lol x

Five hours! Is he Sting?

Yeah foreplay for five or ten minutes, twenty minutes max for sex grin

Dirtymistress Sat 20-Jul-13 18:26:52

What did you get up to for two hours? grin

Hope you had your ipad.

Eh? Obviously some quickies are great and some long sessions are rubbish, and vice versa.

trikken Sat 20-Jul-13 18:28:44

Half an hour maximum I would say, tbh I'd be getting bored by that point.

LittlePeaPod Sat 20-Jul-13 18:29:20

Viagra??? Only joking Op...

Personally for as long as you are both enjoying it (quickie right through to all nightwear). although all nighters are out for me as pregnant

Keztrel Sat 20-Jul-13 18:29:42

And any man who decided to inform me what I could expect out of sex with him would get a massive hmm

deepfriedsage Sat 20-Jul-13 18:30:48

No more than half hour. What did you do for two hours?

HairyGrotter Sat 20-Jul-13 18:32:33

I have a very low attention span, anything more than 1/2 hour inclusive of foreplay has me yawning. I couldn't do longer, thankfully, DP is a quick comer and perfect for me!

Two hours? Jesus wept I'd be so bored

Is he on coke? Men on coke never come.

Ugh. Ive experienced this kind of casanova. A total turn off as they dont tend to respond to you and your body, they have a pre programmed idea of What Wimmin Want. Yuk.

missbopeep Sat 20-Jul-13 18:33:15

penetration for 2 hours- let's get down to the detail- or foreplay for 1hr 55 mins? Go on - tell all.

stopusingmynicknames Sat 20-Jul-13 18:34:15

I agree - half an hour is more like it. well, he, er, humped for about two hours, whilst trying out every conceivable position. I began by encouraging it, and then, er, wrote out my shopping list in my head.
Got loads bought in Sainsbury's this morning

I used to have sessions that lasted hours. These days half hour is fine thanks

Was it some sort of tantric spinning it out for ages number. For me, the quicker the better. I like to get on with my book.

personally i can see 5hrs being a good thing but in the stopping and starting kind of way - as in have sex, lay there cuddling, get aroused again and away you go again kind of all night thing. 5hrs straight, not so much.

stopusingmynicknames Sat 20-Jul-13 18:37:15

Get stuffed - yes, he thinks he knows what wimmin want. and I think there is a control element there (in not 'losing control' - has never been drunk, or taken mind-altering drugs for that reason).

Good. I can confidently tell him that NO woman would welcome a five hour shag-fest!

GetStuffezd Sat 20-Jul-13 18:38:48

And i bet a thousand quid he said at some point "ohhh you like that baby, dont you??"

missbopeep Sat 20-Jul-13 18:38:59

you haven't answered my question smile

hope you are not 14 and just finished your latin prep...

Corygal Sat 20-Jul-13 18:40:05

5 hrs with gaps - for coffee and chat - would be nice. 3x tho, not one endless shag.

I find penetration an almost exquisite tedium, however, and as for a bj that lasted more than 10 min - ooh, jaw pain.

deepfriedsage Sat 20-Jul-13 18:40:19

Stop start sex yes, two hours of continual penetration sex, I would be raw and sore.
