How Long to Cook Corn?

I have always cooked my corn the same way--bring a pot of water to a boil, put corn in, bring back to a boil, reduce heat some and cook 5 minutes. This year, however, my corn is very crisp and chewy. Do I need to just cook it longer? Will it get mushy if I do? Or is this just another side effect of corn being grown in drought conditions? Help!
