37YOU KNOW JERRY PINTO..
Sure you do- journalist, writer, poet, laugh machine and more Mumbaikar than paav bhaaji.
Here’s a quiz question:
What lasts 13.98 minutes?
That’s how long Indian men indulge in sex play.
Does it matter?
Almost all the data we have about men’s sexual habits is a bit of a problem. This is because men do not know their statistics from their phrenology.
Step back a moment to the time of Kinsey measuring men’s birdies in America. This is the methodology he used.
He told the boys who had been chosen for the experiment to step this way please, take a look at this magazine, do what they must, and then lay it against this piece of white cardboard and mark the cardboard.
The men were then left all.If you’re thinking what I’m thinking, here’s what I’m guessing the guys did. They all cheated and added an inch.
The same works for the number of times a city has sex. The Durex Survey, which bothers about these things, says that people have sex about 127 times a year. That’s about once every three days.
Those guys who said that they indulge in foreplay for 13. whatever minutes? They were probably lying. And they were probably lying the wrong way.
If all of them had actually cut down the amount of time they spent in kissing and cuddling and all the rest of that stuff, the result is that the number would have come down.
Then if the accepted average time was three minutes, someone doing a five minute stint between the first lip-lock and the knock-knock would have appeared like Adonis.
Now, in fact, everyone is going to have to keep in there for 15 or more minutes in order to shine.
More doom and gloom in Bombay’s bedrooms. If there was once a city in which a guy might score, it was Mumbai, it was Mumbai, it was Mumbai.
This was because it was safe and safe is a chick magnet. Single women came here to get away from the prying eyes of Chennai and the reaching hands of Delhi.
In Pyaar ke Side Effects, the Delhi girl played by Mallika Sherawat talks about how wonderful it is to be in Mumbai after living in the capital.
