How long you last in bed can often be a lad's bread and butter.
You'll often hear down the pub the type of shit a typical Berty Big Bollocks likes to spew, like: 'Fucking hell mate it went on for ages, I lost track of time blah blah blah'.
Whether it's true or not, there's obviously a lot of exaggeration. And let's be honest, if they were a one pump chump, they wouldn't really be shouting it to the high heavens, would they?
According to a study in the Journal of Medical Science, straight men overestimate how long they last in bed by 31%.
The study found that the average man says they last 1.9 minutes longer than they actually do. Look, if you're going to lie, say you lasted 15 minutes longer than you actually did, not 1.9 minutes.

474 men were tested on their 'intravaginal ejaculatory latency time' (stamina), for four weeks.
The study found that the average man lasts roughly six minutes in bed, and that anyone reaching over 21 minutes was considered an outlier (it means you're a freak of nature).
Most men lasted somewhere between four and eleven minutes, but at the top of the pile was an American, who went for a mammoth 53 minutes.
Using a blinded timing device, rather than a stopwatch, it was found that those aged between 31 and 50 were actually bigger stallions than those aged between 18-30. Come on lads.
We can take pride, however, in the fact that men from the UK lasted longest, with an average of ten minutes.
Hang your heads in shame, Turkey. Your measly 4.4 minutes is nothing to us.
As an aside, I reckon I last a good 20 minutes.
