What does the pace of sex have anything to do with it?

How fast do you like sexual satisfaction?

How fast do you like sexual satisfaction?

When it comes to sex, how exactly do you like it best? Are you more of a fast and wild or slow and sensual person? What about somewhere in the middle?

A recent survey conducted by The Art of Connection found that about half of the men and women polled said they prefer a mix between fast and slow. Although surprising to some, almost 32 percent of women said they would prefer the sex they have to be faster, as compared to only 20 percent of men. 

Age also played a factor in the findings, with those 35 and under responding more to faster sex than those ages 35 and older.

In addition, those who reported having slower sex more often than fast were less satisfied overall in their relationships. 

What does this mean for you? Should you go out and only have fast sex to ensure your satisfaction? The simple answer is no, the more complicated being whatever you and your partner want is really what you should strive for overall.

If you're on the opposite side of the speed spectrum, you're not alone either. With our attention spans now below that of the average goldfish (8 seconds), our need for sexual satisfaction more quickly has risen as well. 

Slow it down instead by keeping the following tips in mind. Take a breather first and decide what you're going to do before you do it. Be sure to focus on what your partner responds to the most, and don't be afraid to encourage them to speak up as well.
