Mapping the long and short of sex
WTOP Tech News ^ | 02/21/14 | Neal Augenstein

WASHINGTON -- They say love is eternal - sex, not so much.

According to Euripedes, "He is not a lover who does not love forever."

Clearly the Greek playwright isn't talking about sex. At least not around here.

A not-very-scientific ranking of states determined those that have the longest and shortest duration of sex.

Topping the list, by a large margin is New Mexico, where an act of love lasts just over 7 minutes, according to Nerve, an online magazine dedicated to sex, relationships and culture.

The data comes from Spreadsheets, a sex activity app that promises to "track your performance between the sheets."


TOPICS: Society
KEYWORDS: itsjustsex; thereanappforthat
while things take forever to get accomplished on Capitol Hill, love gets done very fast in the District of Columbia. D.C. is ranked number 45, with a duration of 2 minutes 8 seconds...You bet!...Obama is screwing the taxpayer as fast as possible!

I know where the finish line is... but the start line is a little fuzzy.

Ahem* No pun intended - really!

I know. It's like starting a diesel engine. Does the clock start when you plug in the block heater, when you hit the switch for the glow plugs, or when you're finally ready to try the starter?

... but the start line is a little fuzzy.

Really, I thought seven minutes was the shortest, not the longest.

It takes several minutes to prime the engine and 12-15 minutes of idling before the engine gets good and warm. Then and only then can you get a good ride in.

I apply this technique to both my wife and my motorcycle and I've been happily riding both for decades (although I did buy a new motorcycle a few years back).

The race ain't over until everybody gets to the finish line.

California - 2:38. Nancy Pelosi spent less time reading Obamacare.

Since New Mexico (and Santa Fe especially) is a gay-friendly state, maybe it takes longer for those of the same sex to be aroused by each other.

Who knows — aside from Sante Fe I haven't heard of a lot of homosexual enclaves. In fact, I'd be rather surprised if state-wide we have a higher than normal general-population ratio — there's still a lot of [Roman] Catholic types in the state.

I say that because of the libs that control the courts and recently ruled gay-marriage must be allowed and before that ruled against a commercial photographer who refused to photograph gay "weddings."

I remember that incident -- though I was out of state when it occurred -- it really pisses me off that they completely ignored the New Mexico Constitution:

Art II, Sec. 11. [Freedom of religion.]
Every man shall be free to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience, and no person shall ever be molested or denied any civil or political right or privilege on account of his religious opinion or mode of religious worship. No person shall be required to attend any place of worship or support any religious sect or denomination; nor shall any preference be given by law to any religious denomination or mode of worship.
It is, IMO, grounds for impeachment and disbarment.
