Question:Did you see the new survey about short sex?

The findings of this new study are going to be in the May issues of the "Journal of Sexual Medicine." The gist of the survey of sex therapists is that sex doesn't have to last all night long to be good. In fact, they've found from talking to their patients that the best sex lasts from three to 13 minutes.

I think that's a relief for a lot of people who feel their sex lives are not what they could or "should" be.
