      And just what, exactly, comes within the purview of "having sex"?
      I do not grow old; if I stop growing, I am old.

        You sure that's 69 minutes per week not per year?
        :-)
        Oh wait, you said "couples," not "married couples!"

          I spend about 70-100 minutes per week jerking off, so this sounds pretty reasonable.

          Does this match up with the people on this forum? Does this include foreplay and afterplay?

            don't know but imagine so; heard about the survey on TV

              I think there are sufficient variables/permutations, interpretations of "having sex" etc. as to render the number 69, or any other number, meaningless.

              Were couples asked to time every encounter? Or do the numbers stem from best guesses? If timed, when did the clock start to run, and when did it stop? I have not seen the "survey", so maybe these matters are set out with some precision, but that seems doubtful.

                are you thinking the time is too long or not long enough?
                or are the survey people rounding the numbers to get to 69 (for a sex joke)

                  I think the "survey" is probably tailored to a desired result...it's BS basically.

                  To use a popular term these days, fake news? May fit here.

                    Not thinking either too long or too short, given the lack of anything to put it in perspective.

                    If the time includes foreplay and some afterglow period, the 69 number is perhaps on the brief side. Does time time refer to only, say, penis in vagina time? Is the survey of a broad spectrum of couples, ages, etc.? Does it sweep in some of those couples or have sex only once a month or so, was well as those who rut like crazed weasels, never taking a rest?

                    I suspect atskitty has it pegged correctly as BS.

                      since I'd heard about it from TV,
                      searched for u and found 2 articles reporting the survey but did not find the survey itself or how conducted

                      self reporting survey results ......
                      well people like to exaggerate so the 69 min/wk is prob too much time?

                        I just read the new "Married ladies, any advice?" thread initial post. I wonder of the survey of 2,000 couples included that poster and her husband. 8 hours in a single day. Makes the 69-minutes-a-week crowd sound like dilettantes.
                        I do not grow old; if I stop growing, I am old.

                            Hi amy,

                            How was sex defined in that study?

                            My ex-g/f and I used to go for what seemed like an hour. Of course, I'm including a lot of foreplay and her having a lot of orgasms. After her third orgasm, she'd beg for intercourse. The more anticipation I could work into our sexual experiences, the more intense were her orgasms and the more she begged for me to porn star her. So I'd go down on her for a couple more times before I banged her brains out. And she LOVED dirty talk.

                              I'd be much more inclined to believe the results if the number had been 68 minutes or 70 minutes, but "69" seems selected for the titillation factor, so "fake news" would seem to fit. More so since there's no mention of what's included. If this were in my house, would I include the half hour of begging and pleading?
