Here's Exactly How Much Sex Is In 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'

... And three other things Ana and Christian could do with their time.

Just in case you were wondering if the upcoming (and coming...) "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie would include sex scenes, the answer is a definitive "yes." In fact, according to this report from The Sunday Times, the movie sex encyclopedia Mr. Skin reports that it will include exactly 20 freaking minutes of sex, or one-fifth of the film's 100-minute run time.

Now, if you're one of those tantric sex enthusiasts (thanks for reading, Sting!) then 20 minutes of getting it on might not sound like a long time to you. (Though it should, since this Nerve report says that an astonishing 45 percent of men finish within two minutes. Ouch.) But to put it all in perspective, here are a few other things that Christian (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) could accomplish with 20 minutes of time on their hands, if the Red Room of Pain were to suddenly become unavailable:

  1. Complete Part 1 of Jillian Michaels' "30 Day Shred."

    Despite only being 20-minutes a piece, all three of the workouts on "Shred" would give Ana and Christian a run for their money -- though given Anastasia's sparse diet, we'd be worried that she'd pass out mid-burpee.

  2. Watch (almost) an entire episode of "The Mindy Project."

    If you take away the tag, then Ana and Christian could easily fit in an entire episode of TV's most consistently romantic-slash-hilarious sitcom.

  3. Make pork chops with herb-mustard butter.

    According to Southern Living, this drool-inducing recipe would only take 20 minutes from start to completion.
