Some 2,000 people from across the UK were quizzed about their sexual habits, including how long they spend on foreplay.
The new findings, commissioned by Superdrug and handed to MailOnline, revealed a stark divide in how long lovers take to orgasm across the home nations.
However, sex experts have said the findings don’t suggest that men in Hull are ‘underperforming’ in the bedroom.
Alix Fox, an award-winning sex educator and Superdrug’s expert, said: ‘If a couple can genuinely both reach orgasm in so short an average time, then that’s glorious.’
She added that reaching climax quicker could be ‘exceedingly useful if they’re parents trying to squish in a quickie in a rare quiet moment’.
Ms Fox said: ‘People who don’t find themselves arriving in O Town quite so quickly certainly shouldn’t feel like they’re unusual or “underperforming”.’
