Florida Ranks 34th For Sex Duration In App-Sourced Study

A new study based on crowdsourced data shows Florida comes up short when compared to 33 other states for duration of sexual intercourse.

The data was collected using Spreadsheets, an iOS app launched last year that monitors data from movement and audio levels through a phone's accelerometer and microphone to provide statistical and visual analysis of sexual performance.

The app is the latest in a growing number of mobile programs that allow users to track their personal data on everything from exercise to sleep quality. According to the app's creators, Spreadsheets app data is stored securely and shared at the discretion of the user.

Data from 10,000 of the app's early adopters was calculated and displayed as a map showing the ranking of all 50 states and the District of Columbia for sex duration in minutes. The map, titled "A Study of Sex Duration in America," was published this week on sex and relationship website Nerve.

New Mexico, West Virginia, and Idaho rounded out the top three, with New Mexico's time of 7 minutes,  1 second beating West Virginia's second place showing by more than a minute.

Florida was one of 25 states ranked with times between two and three minutes. Vermont, South Dakota, and Alaska ranked at the bottom of the list having not broken the 2 minute mark.
