Is Your Guy Normal When It Comes to Sex?

Penis Size


The length of an American man’s erection is, on average, slightly more than 5 1/2 inches, according to a 2014 study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. (Only about 2 percent of guys were packing 8 inches or more.) As for girth, the average guy’s shaft is nearly 5 inches around when hard, the same study found.



The average age at which guys give up their virginity: 17 years old, according to the National Survey of Family Growth.


Only a quarter of U.S. men wear a condom every time they have sex, reports the National Survey of Family Growth. Two-thirds say they never bother to cover up, period.

Introduction to Porn

Chances are, he was surfing porn sites before he could drive: A study in CyberPsychology & Behavior, researchers found males reported being exposed to pornography for the first time at an average age of 14. By age 18, more than 9 in 10 had taken a peek at porn.

His Porn Habit

A new study in the Archives of Sexual Behavior examined the porn habits of men above the age of 18 (with an average age of 24). The results: Six percent of men don’t watch at all in a week’s time; 30 percent watch one to two times a week; 39 percent watch three to give times; 19 percent watch six to 10 times; 7 percent watch 11 or more times

Number of Partners

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) tallied the average number of sexual partners among American men by age: Guys ages 15 to 19 had two partners on average; men 20 to 24 had been with four people; guys 25 to 44 had slept with six.

When He Wants to Tie the Knot

Even if you want to tie the knot sooner than later, your boyfriend might have his own ideas about walking down the aisle. In a Her Campus Media survey of 1,176 guys, 43 percent said they hope to say “I do” between ages 25 and 27, a third preferred the 28 to 30 range, and 8 percent wanted to hold off until their early 30s.

How Long He Lasts

It may be time to lower your sexpectations: In a new Journal of Sexual Medicine study, women said they’d like sex to last 23 minutes. But most encounters only last 3 minutes and 45 seconds, according to Spreadsheets, an app that tracks users’ sex lives
