... this is a surprise? And I mean not for the obvious reason. I recall hearing about ten years ago that to reach the multi-hour mark you had to throw in dinner, a movie, travel time, etc. as part of the "experience". I did some quick math and came to the conclusion that the actual sex was anywhere between an hour and -1/2 an hour.

Which got me to thinking of what tantric premature ejaculation would be....

I remember listening to an interview with Sting many years ago and when asked about it, he said it was true. So he perpetuated the joke.

According to the article it was just a joke between friends but when Sting didn't deny it suddenly people started repeating it like it was a fact rather than the tongue in cheek thing he meant it as.

Quote:
"Do you know who I blame for that? Bob Geldof. Him and Sting had gone to do an interview with a rock journalist, and the interview turned into a drinking session.

"At one point, the journalist asked how long they could go for, and Geldof said he was a three-minute man, but, as Sting did yoga, he could probably go for hours. And Sting said, 'Well, haven't you heard of tantric sex?'
