Which States Have the Longest (and Shortest) Sex in America? Check This Map

Remember that saying, "There's an app for that"? Well, now there is one to keep track of your sex life.

Meet Spreadsheets, "a mobile app that monitors your performance in bed to provide statistical and historical feedback. Find out how many thrusts per minute you're averaging, how long you go for, and exactly how loud it gets. Keep a record of your encounters, date, time, and performance."

While Spreadsheets doesn't actually record sexual encounters in audio or video, it keeps a running log of sex stats. The user-sourced information then can be used to get a broad look at sex life across the country.

For instance, sex website Nerve has taken the data gathered by Spreadsheets to illustrate how long (and how short) average sex is in different states. Check out the map below:

They say it's the quality that matters, but it's still surprising to see that nearly half the states fail to make the three-minute mark.

But the U.S. is not the only country making good use of the app. According to Spreadsheets, only four of the top 10 cities that download the app are from the U.S.:

And while it's fun to compare sex lives in different states, Spreadsheets is not simply a tool for sexual bragging; it is also meant to help people with medical needs, or those who are trying to conceive. But most importantly, the app can demystify the act of sex and help partners have honest discussions about their sex life.

"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, a co-founder of the app.

Hopefully the map above can kickstart that dialogue. Does your state have room for improvement?
