Even though sex is a simple, yet essential activity for some people, it also plays a significant role in the overall wellness of the human body. Sex can help you maintain a regular and healthy immune system, and it can lead to a happier overall mood. It can boost up your libido so that you are more likely to participate in sex the next time an opportunity pops up and it can even cause your blood pressure levels to decline. When you consider all of these factors, it is no wonder so many people are having sexual intercourse with their partner on a regular basis. Unfortunately, sex does not always last as long as we would like it to last. In fact, as much as 43% of sexual intercourse sessions last for a period less than two minutes in total. The average length of a sexual intercourse session, however, seems to be around 7.3 minutes. This is still somewhat short if you consider the fact that two people would want to express their love for each other for at least longer than 10 minutes.
The average sexual intercourse session’s timespan may seem a little low, but, fortunately, there are ways to last much longer than two to 7.3 minutes in bed. The secret is to be prepared to make sure you can perform without ejaculating prematurely, experiencing depletion of stamina or running into another problem that shortens the session of lovemaking. We are going to look at five steps that you should take in order to ensure that you are prepared for a long session of sexual intercourse every time the opportunity strikes.
1. Regular Kegel Exercises
The strength of your pelvic floor muscles plays a vital part in how well you can control your ejaculations and may even have an impact on the severity of your orgasms. This can be especially useful if you are a man who experiences premature ejaculation – a condition where you ejaculate before you and your partner have been fully satisfied. Kegel exercises are an excellent method for improving your pelvic floor muscles. Some men are even able to have multiple orgasms when they continuously perform Kegel exercises and eventually learn how to control the muscles in their pelvic area.
2. Avoid Drinking Too Much Alcohol
Alcohol can help you have more fun at the club, but it can also have an adverse impact on your abilities in the bedroom. Drink Aware reports that drinking excessive amounts of alcohol can reduce the sexual sensitivity of both men and women. If you drink a lot of alcohol continuously, it could even have a prolonged effect on your sexual response. Furthermore, a lot of men experience problems with their ability to gain and maintain a firm erection when they are under the influence of alcohol. Thus, in order to ensure alcohol does not interfere with your sex or make you pass out while you are having sex, you should avoid drinking too much alcohol – especially if you know that you will be having sexual intercourse.
3. Explore Your Own Sexual Life
When you are having sex with your partner, it may not always be possible to explore your own sexual pleasures and life. This may make it difficult to determine what turns you on, what makes you ejaculate faster and, of course, what could help you last longer in bed. Thus, you should schedule some time in your day to explore yourself in a sexual way. Masturbation will not only help you discover new things about your own sex life, but it could also improve your sex drive for when the opportunity comes to have sexual intercourse with a partner. Masturbation can also help you overcome premature ejaculation in some cases, as reported by a sex therapist on Men’s XP.
4. Try Different Sex Positions
Missionary style sex is a “traditional” sex position that couples use when they have sexual intercourse. While this may be popular, it does not mean that it is always satisfactory. In fact, some people gets bored with this sex position and may rather just “get it over with” rather than wanting to make it last as long as possible. Thus, to last longer during a mindblowing sexual intercourse session, why not spice things up by trying out different sex positions. You should realize that, not only will this add some adventure to your session, but it will also allow you to take a break every now and then (when switching to a new position), thus you will be able to delay your ejaculation. You can also opt for the best sex pills for men to have a positive and long-lasting sexual session.
5. Start Off With Some Foreplay
A lot of people tend to jump “right in” when they want to have sexual intercourse. This may be a great way to have sexual intercourse when you are in a hurry – such as when you’ve had a long day at work – it is definitely not the sexiest way to have sex and it would not make sex last longer at all. In fact, jumping right in can make you feel like finishing off faster as well. In order to prolong your lovemaking session, try to start out with some foreplay. There are many ways to have a foreplay session. It could even start out with something as simple as feeding each other chocolate dipped strawberries, touching, kissing and similar activities. Starting off slow could add a lot of time to your intimate session and it could make you last longer as you are not rushing into things.
Some people prefer to have quick sessions of sexual intercourse, while others are enjoying the benefits that they can gain from longer lasting intimate sessions. A session that lasts longer allows the two partners to connect at a more intimate level. The five tips in this post can all help you last longer during sex – not only be delaying ejaculation but also be spicing up the session and making both partners want to be intimate with each other for the longer duration.
