A pig's orgasm lasts for 30 minutes........

An average boar ejaculates between 5 - 10 minutes. The total volume of semen ejaculated is typically around 4 deciliters (yes, almost a half of liter) so you can imagine it can't be completed in few seconds.

The 30 minute (various veterinary literature mentions even 40 minutes) ejaculations are edge cases
