Ok I have a friend who believes it is possible to have sex five times in three hours. I myself Do not believe this but I would like to know if it is in fact possible. I have heard reasons why not but my curiosity has brought me to this forum. So if you could answer for me I'd be very appreciative.

It's certainly physically possible, but it depends on a few things:
1) what you're defining as sex. Are you just talking about penis-in-vagina sex, or are you also including other types of sexual activity?
2) a person's refractory period, which is the amount of time it takes them to become aroused again after an orgasm. See our article on Sexual Response and Orgasm: A User's Guide for more about how arousal and sexual response works.
It's certainly physically possible, but many people probably wouldn't have that much sex in a short period of time like that.

okay, given that young men often take shorter amounts of time (ten to twenty mintues) to complete one sexual act to resolution, but also a minimum of ten minutes to refract...
that's about thirty minutes from start to the end of refractory.
in three hours, theoretically, you could have sex 6 times. 6>5, therefore it is possible to have sex 5 times in three hours.
however, i would say that both people would be very tired, sore, and really, sex is about QUALITY NOT QUANTITY. Sure, it makes for a great story to tell the guys over beers, but when you think about it, being in such a rush to beat an arbitrary numerical score really compromises the uality of the sex you have.
anyway, if your friend claimed as much, then methinks someone;s trying to brag.
