Well, yes, the connection is encrypted by a block cipher - what did
you expect? Are you disconnecting and reconnecting for every request
or are you keeping the connection alive? The SSL opening handshake is
very expensive. Are you using a debug or optimized OpenSSL library?
It is normal that SSL connections are going to be significantly slower
than plain connections. On a related note, Google wants the world to
switch to HTTP/S and disallow HTTP.
