How long does the average couple last?
The average time for each couple (that is, averaged across all the times they had sex) ranged from 33 seconds to 44 minutes. Thats an 80-fold difference. So its clear theres no one “normal” amount of time to have sex. The average (median, technically) across all couples, though, was 5.4 minutes.
