What is Intercourse?

Intercourse is a form of sexual contact between individuals that involves penetration of the penis into the vagina until ejaculation is achieved.In general terms, intercourse is often referred to as having sex. The process of intercourse or coitus has stages that can be explained in more detail.

According to a survey conducted by the Society for Sex Therapy and Research in 2005, the average duration of intercourse is 3-7 minutes. Intercourse duration of less than 2 minutes is considered too short, while duration of 10-30 minutes is considered too long.

Experts have described a sexual response cycle that explains the various changes that occur in the body during sexual intercourse. 

Intercourse Stages

Having sex is an activity that goes through several different phases. These phases are the body's natural response to sexual interaction between two individuals. In 1966, sex researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson identified four stages of sex.

1. Excitement

At this stage, you and your partner will feel increased enthusiasm, characterized by a rapid heartbeat, deeper breathing, and flushed skin. Blood flows to the reproductive organs, causing erection of the penis and swelling of the clitoris. The nipples are hard and the vagina secretes lubricating fluid. The body's muscles tense, increasing sexual arousal.

2. Plateau

The body's tension level increases. Breathing, heart rate and blood pressure increase, and muscles become more tense. The vagina enlarges and darkens, while the clitoris becomes more sensitive to stimulation and the testicles are pulled upward.

3. Orgasm

The next stage is orgasm or climax, where sexual arousal reaches its peak. Muscles experience strong contractions as the body releases tension. Contractions occur in the vagina and uterus, while the muscles at the base of the penis tense, leading to ejaculation.

4. Resolution

After climax, the body returns to its original condition. The muscles become more relaxed, breathing becomes calm. The reproductive organs return to their original size and color. A feeling of calm and contentment struck. This is the stage where the body recovers after sexual intercourse.

While these steps provide a general overview of human sexual response, it is important to remember that each individual may have a different experience. Sexual responses may vary depending on the situation and individual conditions. For example, the level of arousal may arise more quickly in individuals who have long desired sexual relations, while in couples who have been together for a long time, it may take longer for mutual arousal to arise.

Intimate relationships are an important aspect of relationships. Not only does it provide happiness and intimacy, intimate relationships can also provide health benefits for partners.

However, sometimes there are times when couples experience difficulties in carrying out the stages of intimate relations. This can be caused by various factors, such as stress, fatigue, or health problems.

If you and your partner are experiencing difficulties in intimate relationships, don't hesitate to consult a doctor. Doctors can help find out the cause and provide the right solution. By overcoming these difficulties, you and your partner can again enjoy a pleasant and happy intimate relationship.
