KATHMANDU — A new survey of 3,836 people, has revealed exactly how long men and women of different ages ‘last’ in the bed.
According to a survey carried out by Saucydates.com, women across the world want sex to last 25 minutes and 51 seconds while for men, the answer is 25 minutes and 43 seconds.
Although both sexes would like to enjoy roughly the same amount of time getting engaged, the majority will be left disappointed as the survey also revealed that the average man in any country and of any age cannot get close to the ideal duration.
Interestingly, there was found to be a noticeable trend in the duration of sex increasing with age and then later decreasing.
The country with the best staying power was found to be the USA — with a top time of 17 minutes and five seconds for men aged 31. Canada is in secon position — with the Canadians are very close the America men and out perform everyone else until aged 28. They are also well above the international average.
Britons are not so long-lasting at a younger age but soon improve – by the age of 20 they are average and by their early 30s they are up with the best. Globally, there’s a noticeable trend in intercourse duration that increase with age and then later decreases.
Neighboring Indian men were found to be below the international average for the entire range surveyed. In India, men got better with age and by 50 years of age, came close to the rest of the world.
No Nepalis were included in the survey.
The United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom tend to have a more relaxed attitude to casual sex than India.Follow @gorkhapost
Why men prefer curvy women, revealed
NEW YORK —Why do most men prefer ladies with curvier bodies, especially sharp curvy hips? According to a study, modern man’s this preference has ancient evolutionary roots.
According to a research carried out by a team from the University of Texas (UT) at Austin and the UT – Arlington has found that for a mate, man preferred a woman with a “theoretically optimal angle of lumber curving,” a 45.5-degree bend from back to buttocks allowing ancestral women to better support, provide for, and carry out multiple pregnancies.
“The findings enable us to conclusively show that men prefer women who exhibit specific angles of spinal bend over buttock mass,” said study’s co-author Eric Russell from the UT – Arlington in a paper published in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior.
This investigation consisted of two studies. The first looked at vertebral wedging, an underlying spinal feature that can influence the actual curve in women’s lower backs.
Around 100 men rated the attractiveness of several manipulated images showing spinal curves ranging across the natural spectrum.
Men were most attracted to images of women displaying the hypothesized optimum of 45 degrees of lumbar curvature.
This adds growing body of evidence that beauty is not entirely arbitrary or “according to the viewer” as many in mainstream social sciences believed, but instead has a coherent adaptive logic, added psychology professor David Buss from the UT Austin.
“This spinal structure would have enabled pregnant women to adjust their weight over the hips,” the authors noted.
These women would have been more effective at foraging during pregnancy and less likely to suffer spinal injuries.
Thus, men who preferred these women would have had mates who were better able to provide for foetus and offspring, and who would have been the able to carry out multiple pregnancies without injury.
The second study addressed the topic of whether men prefer this angle because it reflects bigger buttocks, or whether it truly can be attributed to the angle in the spine itself.
Around 200 men were presented with groups of images of women with differing buttock size and vertebral wedging, but maintaining a 45.5-degree curve.
Men consistently preferred women whose spinal curvature was closer to optimum regardless of buttock size.Follow @gorkhapost
