How to Have Great Sex/sex


how long is a good time to last for sex?  is it the same as time as how a boy lasts in masturbating?

There is no set time.  Most often, intercourse takes between 10 and 20 minutes.  Some people like to go longer, some less.  A male will generally take longer to reach orgasm in intercourse than he takes to masturbate to orgasm.  It varies a lot, but you should expect it to take 1.5 to two times as long.  So if you take 5 minutes to masturbate to orgasm, expect intercourse to last from 7 1/2 to 10 minutes.  Just a rule of thumb.
