Book Summary

A mutually satisfying sexual relationship is complex. It involves the pairing of two individuals, each with his or her own idiosyncratic set of tikes and dislikes. Each, in the language of Simon and Gagnon (1968), with a unique ideal sexual script. A couple's sexual performance script--that is, what actually occurs during the couples' sexual encounter--may be quite incongruent with one or both partners' ideal script with respect to desired duration of sexual activities. Past research has attempted to determine heterosexual couples' actual and desired duration of both foreplay (1) and intercourse. For example, early research by Kinsey and his colleagues (Kinsey, Pomeroy, & Martin, 1948; Kinsey, Pomeroy, Martin, & Gebhard, 1953) found that women and men reported an average foreplay duration of approximately 12 minutes. Three quarters of the men reported an intercourse duration of under two minutes. Hunt (1974) found that reports of the duration of both foreplay and intercourse had increased over the intervening 2 decades. Laumann, Gagnon, Michael, and Michaels (1994) also investigated performance scripts. However, they chose to study "duration of last sexual event" rather than the duration of foreplay and intercourse separately. Further, none of these studies investigated participants' ideal duration of either foreplay or intercourse.
