more fun facts (female)
more from the sexual records site, compiled primarily from data from the institure for sex research:
Average Vagina Size
3 inches along the posterior wall with a diameter of 0.8 inches, though in stimulated phase it balloons to 3.75-4.1 in long by 2.3-2.5 inches in diameter.
Average Clitoris Length
1 inch, though the part that shows, called the clitoral glans, is 0.20 inches long.
Average Vaginal Acidity
4.0 to 5.0 on the pH scale--fairly acidic.
Average Hymen Thickness
0.05-0.10 inches (0.125-0.25 cm.).
Average Ovary Size
1.5 inches long by 0.75 inches in breadth by 1 inch thick (3.75 x 2 x 2.5 cm.).
Average Bust Size
The average bust line for American women is 35.9 inches (91.2 cm). The typical bra size is 34B, with the proportions of women's cup sizes breaks down to the following: A-15%, B-44%, C-28%, D-10%, while the remaining 3% are AA, AAA, DD and beyond. Interestingly, manufacturers of women's clothing agree that the average American woman's bust size has expanded in recent decades, if only by fractions of an inch, due to improved diet and birth control pills.
Average Nipple Size (female)
0.27 inches (6.79 mm).
Average Areola Size (female)
1.4 inches (35.62 mm).
Average Ovum Size
1/175th of an inch (0.14 mm.), slightly smaller than the period ending this sentence. Interestingly, this is the largest cell in the human body.
Average Duration of Ovum Fertility
The female egg will remain fertile for about 24 to 48 hours.
Average Number of Ova
400,000. Unlike men, who continually replenish his supply of sperm, women have a set amount of ova that's determine at birth. Only 400 are ever released during a woman's lifetime, and their quality deteriorates over time–ample reason why if you plan on conceiving a child, you'd better do it before age 40.
Average Age of Menarche (Onset of Menstruation)
12.5 years. Interestingly, a study in 1962 showed that this age has decreased by four months every decade since 1830.
Average Menstrual Flow
Approximately 50 to 175 cc., or one-quarter to one-half a cup.
Average Menstrual Cycle Duration
Average Period Duration
Average Age of Menopause
Average Time to Orgasm (female)
Females in Kinsey's studies averaged a little less than 4 minutes to reach orgasm during masturbation, though for coitus it took anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes.
Average Duration of Orgasm (female)
5-8 seconds. Orgasmic contractions in both sexes occur at intervals of 0.8 seconds
Female [longest orgasms] As you probably know, women are capable of multiple orgasms without having to rest between. However, as savant Cecil Adams expounds in his book More of the Straight Dope, women are capable of so much more:
What you probably didn’t know is that women are capable of sustained orgasm, called status orgasmus. These start with a 2 to 4 second "spastic contraction" and last twenty to sixty seconds. Masters and Johnson (1966) published a chart of one woman who experienced a 43-second orgasm, consisting of at least 25 successive contractions. Status orgasmus is usually the result of self-stimulation, but a woman can experience it at the hands (or whatever) of a suitably skilled lover.
damn, i hate being old. i was reading the rest of the records site and seeing that mae west once had continuous sex for 15 hours, i felt pretty good at once having beaten that record.
but then i read about empress valeria messalina of rome having had 25 men in 24 hours.
damn. mine was 27 hours total, with one man, but we took a break in between to watch the blue jays win the world series, so it doesn't quite count as continuous. i could never manage that these days. 4 or 5 hours is about my best lately.
why did i leave that sexual marathoner? he lied to me. the best sex in the world doesn't compare to honesty.
