I'm wondering how long, in people's experience, the act of heterosexual sexual intercourse takes.

When I mean this, I specifically this without any reference to fun stuff like foreplay and so on.
I am curious, basically, as to how long, in people's experience, the actual portion of the sex act that involves penetration and thrusting to climax takes for them. I realize it involves individual endurance, as well as differing acts that may cause greater or more rapid excitement, but I'm thinking more of averages and rough spans.
The question is a bit graphic, I know, but I'm curious -- movies often refer to how long men endure before climaxing either in comic or exaggerated fashion, without any real sense as to what the average is.
(Assume for the sake of this question that we're speaking of natural endurance, without involvement of Viagra or other substances or toys.)
(I specify heterosexual not due to any inherent homophobic opinion, but simply because (a) that's my own preference and (b) the respective acts are different and thus probably have differing answers.)
