It may come as no surprise that many believe the key to a great sex life is how long a man lasts in the bedroom. Although people boast about hours of long, tantric sexual intercourse, therapists have concluded three to 13 minutes of sex is the optimal amount of time. For those looking to quantify their sex life, it's time to ditch the timer in the Spreadsheets App — a mobile app that uses your phone’s accelerometer and speakers to provide feedback about the duration, thrusts, and decibel peaks during sex.

The company created the sex activity app as a means for couples to approach sex-related topics like frequency or quality in an interactive and laid back way. Users of the app can even earn 30 achievements based on how they rank in several of the sex categories. "We wanted to create an app that entices users to have some fun with their partner and share in that afterglow experience, while encouraging open dialog and feedback,” said Danny Wax, co-founder of the app to Nerve.

To heat things up in all 50 states, including the District of Columbia, Spreadsheets App and Nerve teamed up to investigate which states had the longest and shortest duration in between the sheets. The company used the stats of its 10,000 early users spread out through the U.S. to average their intercourse time. The love-making survey revealed Americans of a particular southwest state keep it hot in the bedroom for over seven minutes, while others in the northwest keep it frigid at just over a minute. The colors on the map are code for how long lovers in those states last in between the sheets ranging from blue to bright red.
