The results of a survey published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine reveal that British men officially last longer in bed than speedy foreigners, says a report in The Sun, London.
Researchers in Holland measured the sex performance of nearly 500 men from five countries against the clock, the report said. Here are the results:
British Men averaged 10 minutes
Americans managed to hang on for only 8 minutes
The Dutch are conservative at 6.5 minutes
The Spanish, though good lovers, last only 4.9 minutes
Turks clocked an average of 4.4 minutes
One man, whose nationality was not disclosed, lasted SIX SECONDS.
Another man managed an exhausting 52 MINUTES.
The Sun report says, after years being told they are rubbish at love-making, Brits can at last claim to be world-beaters.
The time taken begins from actual sex act to the point of climax.
The researchers at Utrecht University were investigating premature ejaculation - a condition medically defined as being unable to last a minute - which can wreck relationships.
A spokesman said: "The UK had the longest time. We found no major difference in those who used condoms. But men who drank alcohol before sex tended to last longer."
