It should last until both are happy and satisfied.It gets boring if it is just for one of the people.

I don't know if it would be boring, but I think you need a mental break after about 2 hours, maybe. You can pull hair, choke, spank and do crazy shit for only so long, and then you need some water.

Never too short if you're in a rush to get somewhere.

Lovemaking...needs at least 30 minutes....or it can be in sessions throughout the night....with breaks in between.

Just plain "I'm horny---do me now, so I can get on with my day"...----whatever time it takes .....15 or less I'd say....

a half-hour is okay... fifteen minutes is too little time.
and an hour is nice, but, it can get "too much like work".

i myself love extended sessions... where both can cum multiple times... so really if i can't devote at least 1 hour then why bother.... i love Saturday afternoon sex that last 3 or 4 hours...

In my opinion, for life...with occasional breaks.

Time limits are counter productive. There is no 'too quick" nor "too long". Nice long slow cuddle-f@ck's to quick and frenzied monkey sex. They are all good as long as both players on on the same timer.

depends on the amount of foreplay before the actual intercourse starts. if there is lots of fun play before, then the sex does not need to last more than 5-10 minutes. but if you are relying on sex only (pity) it should last at least a half hour. it is hard for women to come from sex alone. if she has already orgasmed and you are just going on and on, it gets boring.
if you are going to keep going on, then you would need to stop for a bit and switch back to foreplay type play to get her going again before you continue

Not really a time limit on love making.....sometimes there is nothing better than a quickie....and sometime it is great to go for hours....as long as both agree on how fast or long lasting it should be

Two hours, minimum.

If her daughter comes home early, it's too short.

Love making? A lifetime.

Only wish I'd have run across the woman who thought so too. Although they've all had a different limits on their sex meter. I'd have to say all I've known ration sex by the minute over making love as a lifestyle.

Lovemaking should never be boring, it should always be an adventure, of trying new things, of perfecting technique, foreplay should last 15 to 30 minutes and the rest another 15-30 so about an hour and then take a break and go back for more

Depends on the situation, mornings when you have to get ready for work, you have to know how to get you both there in 15-20 minutes, at night, take your time, the whole session, to me, should take an hour (that is with all the foreplay, oralm etc,!

Have a good one!

My wife says my 5 to 7 minutes is too short, but her lover's 2 hours would be boring if he didn't keep giving her orgasms the entire time.
