D.C. residents always seem to be in a hurry. They talk fast, walk fast and are always busy.

But maybe they should slow down during sex.

According to Nerve’s study on the duration of sex across America, D.C. ranks 45th on its list of average times of intercourse, with a short average time of just two minutes and eight seconds. 

Want longer sex? Head to New Mexico, where they last for seven minutes and one second.

Nerve used data from the Spreadsheets App, a mobile app used to track various aspects of sexual activity including duration and thrusts, to create their list that ranks D.C. and all 50 states.

Alaska takes the 51st spot on the list with an average of one minute and twenty-one seconds.
