Everyone wants to have better sex and every man wants to make sure they last long enough to satisfy their partner. For some men this is not a problem. However, many experts estimate that 30 percent of all men suffer from premature ejaculation (PE). Many of these men have a desire to learn sex tips that will help them delay and prolong orgasm.
The scientific definition of premature ejaculation, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, in 2008, defines PE as having to meet three criteria. The ejaculation should occur within the first minute of penetration, there should be an inability to delay ejaculation, and negative personal consequences such as, frustration, anxiety, and avoidance of sexual intimacy should be present. According to most sexual therapists, normal ejaculation times are between two and ten minutes.
If you are above the ten-minute mark, you can probably stop reading now. However, if you are below or near the two-minute threshold, you should continue reading to learn about some sexual techniques that help men last longer in bed.
1. Master Masturbation
Learning how to last longer in bed starts when you are by yourself. Yes, you must practice control while masturbating. Take your time and go slow. Bring yourself close to orgasm and practice delaying the end. With practice, you can take what you learn into the bedroom…with a partner.
2. The Squeeze
One of the most well-known sexual techniques is to squeeze your penis right below the head. This momentarily squeezes the blood out of the penis and stops the build up to ejaculation. Make it more fun and have your partner put the squeeze on you.
3. Do Your Kegels
Kegels are not just for women. Men can learn to tighten and control the muscles that are responsible for ejaculation. When you do Kegel exercises, you are working your pubococcygeus (PC) muscles. The PC muscles control the flow of urine and semen, the firmness of your erection, and the power of your ejaculation. The best way to find your PC muscles and learn how to perform the exercise is to stop the flow of urine when you’re going to the bathroom.
You can do Kegels anywhere at anytime. Squeezing your PC muscles and holding that squeeze for five or ten seconds is all you need to do. Do these for ten reps a few times per day and you will quickly tighten your PC muscles and become better at controlling ejaculation..
4. Think Outside the Box
One of the most common sex tips for controlling orgasm is to train yourself to think of something else while you are having sex. You don’t have to think about negative things, just something that is not sexual and takes you away from the moment for a few seconds.
5. Breathe Deeply
If you want to learn how to last longer in bed, you should practice breathing techniques. Learn how to take deep breathes and exhale slowly. As you begin to master your breathing, you will be able to control your breathing during sex. Remember to continue breathing slowly as you get close to orgasm. Deep breaths will help you prolong orgasm and keep your partner satisfied.
6. Are you Depressed?
One of the side effects of taking antidepressants is delayed orgasm. Common anti-depression drugs such as, Paxil, Prozac, Anafranil, and Zoloft can all help men delay orgasm and last longer in bed. These antidepressants are not approved for use as a treatment for premature ejaculation and they have other side effects that include drowsiness, dry mouth, nausea, and decreased libido. If you feel your PE problem is hurting your sex life or your relationship, you may want to speak with your physician about these drugs.
These are a few common sexual techniques that will help you last longer in bed. These sex tips have worked for millions of men and can work for you if you give them a chance. Don’t be embarrassed if you suffer from PE, be proactive and learn how to take your time and put her orgasm ahead of yours.
