No Wonder Less Than Half Find Sex Lives Exciting

ATLANTA, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Americans spend nearly three hours every week grooming themselves (i), but less than one hour on foreplay and sexual intercourse. No wonder only 46% of them describe their love lives as exciting.

And while there are several factors influencing sexual wellbeing, Americans seem to lack both quality and quantity.

On average, Americans spend 35 minutes on foreplay and sexual intercourse each session. Since Americans have sex once every 4.3 days, that averages out to about 57 minutes per week -- about 14 minutes below the global average.

These findings are part of "In The Bedroom," the latest results from the 2007/2008 Durex(R) Sexual Wellbeing Global Survey, which takes an intimate peek behind bedroom doors around the world. "In The Bedroom" is the second major release of the five-part survey, building on its exploration into "Sexual Satisfaction," a report released in April 2007. Analysis of physical pleasure and sexual knowledge and education will be released over the next 14 months.

"Sexual Satisfaction," the first wave of the survey, revealed that Americans are having a lot less sex than just about everyone else in the world, and when they do, less than half are fully satisfied. On average, Americans have sex just 85 times a year (about once every 4.3 days) -- well below the global average of 103 times (about once every 3.5 days), with only the Japanese (48 times), people in Hong Kong (82 times) and Nigerians (84 times) having less sex.

Key Findings About Americans Compared To The World

While Americans might be somewhat bored in bed, they have ideas about what they can do to improve their sex lives; most notably, less stressful lives (37%) and more romance (35%) top the list. Other key findings from the report include:

* American men average 13 partners, which is:

- Ten less than Canadians (23)
