A writer friend quoted an Australian survey about the length of coitus, published apparently to reasuure other Australian, or to quash any unreal expectations in others. Some of the findings were amusing.
I commented in her blog and think its worth repeating here:-
"What are we measuring here, the physical conjunction, or the thousand moments of tenderness that turn it into an act of love?"
I am a strong believer in the school that says 99% of great sex happens between the ears, particularly having had one partner for the last forty-seven years and taking the act out of its emotional context is impossible for me.
