(FOX19) - How often do most couples have sex? A leading sexual health doctor claims the average couple has sex two to three times a week, but not for long enough.

Dr. Harry Fisch, a urologist from New York Presbyterian Hospital, says about 45 percent of men orgasm within two minutes of starting penetrative sex, which is much too speedy for the average woman. Fisch adds in a report on that most women need five to seven minutes to reach orgasm.

"Couples of any age in the early phase of a love relationship tend to have a lot of sex—daily if not more frequently," he writes. "But the frequency of sex declines as any relationship ages, although married couples have more sex than those who are single."

Fisch says the average man has 11 erections a day. The doctor also adds that teenage boys and men in their twenties with high hormonal levels might think it's completely normal to have sex several times a day.
