Americans are firm believers in a healthy sex life. In fact, 61 per cent believe that a healthy sexual relationship makes them a better husband, wife or partner, according to a survey by condom manufacturer Durex.

But it’s not all fireworks in the bedroom.  

In a poll of 1000 men and women, half of respondents were “feeling dissatisfied with the duration of their bedroom escapades.” The dissatisfaction has led 75 per cent of men and 66 per cent of women to try alter the pace while making love. 

Apparently, it’s a timing issue with 37 per cent respondents feeling their intimacy time ends too quickly while 14 per cent say it lasts longer than they would like.

Maybe they should try altering the location instead, since a third of women fantasize about making love on the Eiffel Tower and third of men want to do it in the White House. 

Previous surveys have shown that men and women have different ideas of sex. In 2010, David Crary reported for the Associated Press that 85 per cent of men were sure their latest partner had an orgasm, but only 64 per cent of women actually had one.
