5 Tips to Help You Last Longer in Bed
It’s late at night; the lights are turned off; the blinds are shut; the music is blaring; her favorite song is on. Unfortunately, you only managed to make it through the first minute. She’s displeased, you’re embarrassed. Suddenly you’re in the shower thinking, this happens every time. No matter how hard you try, you just can’t find a way to last longer in bed. Well, you’re not alone—you’re not.
Not a pretty statistic but it has been reported that about 30-70% of men under the age of 40 in the United States suffer from premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation or PE baffles the most intelligent doctors around the world, as it doesn’t have any organic cause whatsoever.
It’s a psychological thing. Premature ejaculation lasts about 1-2 minutes—if you hope to keep that girl, this is unacceptable. We want to help you overcome this problem. And if you don’t experience PE at all (psych), you could keep on reading for a friend. Here are a couple of tips to help you overcome a trauma that plagues many sexually young active men.
The #1 tip to help you last longer in bed has to be using a condom. Statistically proven, condoms present the cheapest and effective way to decrease penis sensitivity. In simple words, using a condom during sex can help you delay ejaculation. With that being said, condoms come in various forms. We have ‘thin condoms’ that are designed to maintain sexual pleasure at optimum levels. At the same time, ‘thick condoms’ or ‘delay condoms’ are created to prolong intercourse.
To identify thick condoms, inspect the texture; they are usually thicker than ordinary condoms. Most times, brands point out the thickness of a condom by making indications like ‘last longer or ‘extra strength’ on the pack. It works well for a lot of men, as some of them even claim to last forever with such condoms.
What about ‘delay condoms’? Well, just like thick condoms, their major function is to decrease penis sensitivity. However, they don’t sacrifice texture to achieve this. Delay CDs are often coated with numbing agents like lidocaine or benzocaine. The great thing about ‘climax control’ condoms: they can be bought over the counter.
Give Anesthetic Products A Try
Speaking of over the counter fixes for PE, anesthetic products are quite the opposite. Wipes or sprays are the new trendy fixes for premature ejaculation. Numerous studies have been conducted to prove the effectiveness of sprays and wipes soaked in benzocaine. Every study came back with positive results.
Why are wipes or swipes relatively new? Well, because the most common drug treatments for PE are sprays and creams. In that mix somewhere are prescription pills. Whichever is the case, swipes may just is the fastest and most effective way to last longer in bed.
Although we can’t talk for every wipe on the market, we do recommend Roman swipes. No one suffering from PE likes to admit it. We understand this. So if you’re not willing to get a prescription from a doctor, and condoms don’t work for you, then you should try out Roman swipes. They are worth the hype. Here’s a brief breakdown of what these swipes contain and how they work.
- Roman swipes are one-time use wipes the size of condoms
- Each wipe contains small doses of benzocaine—it prolongs intercourse
- Wipes can be applied anywhere you wish to the degree you want
- Very portable to carry around and are tasteless compared to the sprays
Do Roman swipes work? The brand claims over a 300 percent increase in ejaculation time. If you used to last a minute and a half, with these wipes, you should now last longer in bed for about 7 minutes. Remember, every man experiences PE at some point in their lives. Prepare for the inevitable, will ya?
Work It Out
No, we don’t mean that… ever heard of Kegel exercise? You haven’t? Great, we’ve taught you something new. Get your mind off masturbation, you need to get exercising. Sometimes, you see, weak pelvic muscles may is the cause of your PE. If that is the case, you may need to perform some pelvic floor exercises, otherwise known as Kegel exercises.
How to start? Calm your scrotum; we’ll get to that in a second. First, you’ll need to find the right muscles. The way to start is to think of the Kegel exercise process as ‘I want to pee but not yet’. The pelvic floor muscles are those muscles that control your urine flow. Next time, you feel the urge to pee, pay close attention to the muscles that tighten when you hold in urine. Keep in mind that your abdomen, buttock muscles, and thighs should remain relaxed.
Steps to performing Kegel exercises
- On an empty bladder, sit or lie down
- Tighten your pelvic floor muscles and hold tight for 5 seconds max
- Relax muscles for the same duration
- Repeat in 10 reps, 3 times a day
Have You Tried Edging?
The article gets a little weird at this point, but it’s only useful advice. Edging, why not? It trains your mind and directly helps you last longer in bed. Yes, edging means you will have to masturbate. However, at the point of climax, you must stop all masturbatory activity until the excitement ebbs away. Rinse and repeat until you can’t stop the climax.
PS: it has been alleged by the unseen masses that masturbating before sex can give you a boost in bed.
The Squeeze can be effective
In addition to edging, squeezing your penis at the point where the head connects with the shaft desensitizes your manhood. If you feel an orgasm coming, clinch that spot with a thumb and forefinger. Apply firm pressure on the urethra and let the excitement die down. Doing it will often help you last longer in bed.
Switch up the Positions
Having sex in the same position seems routine and can seriously hamper your prolonged ejaculation goals. Instead of settling for just one position and hammering away, why not switch things up a bit? Experimenting with new sex positions can be helpful when you’re trying to last long in bed. That being said; don’t overdo it. Do not—we mean it—do not switch positions too quickly. Do it wisely all the while keeping the focus on your lady.
Eye Of The Tiger
If you want the best sexual experience for you and your partner, then ‘slow down’. Talk to your partner, ask what makes her tick. Remember, sex isn’t about lasting longer in bed; it’s an intimate experience that should be enjoyed by both parties. As women are less likely to orgasm than men, you must take care of their sexual needs first before you fulfill yours.
