So you want to put the oomph back into bedroom time, huh?

There’s nothing wrong with that! In fact, wanting to last longer during sex is a common desire. 

There are steps you can take to help extend your sexual stamina. In this article, we will cover some of the best tips and dispel some of the myths about lasting longer in bed.

Understanding premature ejaculation

Premature ejaculation (PE) is a common problem that affects almost every man at some point in his life.

It’s more than just an inconvenience—it can leave both partners feeling frustrated and dissatisfied. But millions of men have gone through the same thing, and there are solutions available to help you through it.

There are also a few things you can do to help prevent PE in the first place. Masturbation is one of them—it can help you learn what your body likes and doesn’t like, and it can help you get a better understanding of how ejaculation works.

Using a condom can also be helpful since it decreases sensation and gives you more control over how long you last.

Exercises to help last longer

There are exercises you can do to help you last longer in bed. One is the stop-start method, which involves stimulation until near ejaculation, then stopping until the urge decreases. This takes a lot of control, but it’s a great way to train yourself to last longer.

Kegel exercises are also a great way to strengthen the PC muscles, and they’re easy to do. All you have to do is contract the muscle for three seconds at a time, and repeat 10-20 times. You can do these exercises anywhere.

Breathing techniques to slow things down

Breathing slowly and deeply can help to reduce tension and prevent premature ejaculation. 

Inhale for five seconds, hold your breath for three seconds, then exhale for five seconds. Taking deep diaphragm breaths can also help to reduce arousal.

If you find that your mind is wandering and you’re getting too excited, take a few minutes to focus on your breath. This will help to calm you down and get you back at the moment. With a bit of practice, you will be able to use these breathing techniques to last longer when things heat up.

The benefits of using a desensitizing product

Desensitizing sprays helps to reduce the hypersensitivity of the penis, which is one of the main causes of premature ejaculation.

Sprays that are specifically designed for this purpose contain ingredients that help to desensitize the penis and reduce arousal. This means that you will be less likely to reach orgasm quickly.

Pursue and explore other forms of sexual expression

There are many other ways to enjoy each other’s company and express your sexuality.

You don’t always have to focus on penetration. Instead, you can explore other forms of sexual expressions, such as:

  • Toys
  • Oral sex
  • Massage
  • Anal play
  • Fantasizing

All of these activities can help you last longer in bed by taking the pressure off of penetration. And who knows? You might just find that you enjoy these activities more than classic intercourse.

Contrary to popular belief, lasting longer during sex is not about sheer willpower but instead about understanding your body and knowing the right techniques to delay ejaculation. Fortunately, with a bit of practice, you can last longer during sex and make the experience more enjoyable for both you and your partner. So, why not give it a try?
