While many busy people spend their days rushing from one task to another, sex is one activity that most individuals do not want to rush through. When engaging in sexual activity, men and women commonly like to savor the intense physical stimulation and pleasurable emotional connect. Some individuals, despite their best efforts, struggle to prolong this activity. While it can be challenging, with practice and dedication you can extend the length of your in-bed romps.
Practice Kegels with your partner. Kegels are simple exercises that build the pelvic muscles necessary for sex. To complete a Kegel, simply contract, then loosen your pelvic muscles, similar to how you would tighten and loosen your muscles to start and stop peeing.
Avoid drugs and alcohol. While many couples begin their night with a little liquid courage to set the mood, doing so may have a negative impact on your end of the night festivities, reports WebMD. Drugs and alcohol reduce your ability to control your bodily actions, making it harder for you to have a long-lasting sexual escapade.
Make some noise. The moans and groans that commonly accompany good sex may be more than just background noise. WebMD reports that letting out these noises can help sustain sex as the noises release some of the pent-up sexual energy. To make your sex better–and longer–don’t hold these noises in.
Encourage your partner to linger, not thrust. Many sex-hungry men engage in the act by trusting. If you want your guy to last a bit longer, encourage him to trade this thrusting action for a gentler penetration method. Hold your man at bay by encouraging him to linger in the entry to your vagina instead of thrusting with force repeatedly, an action sure to produce rapid climax.
Regulate your breathing. To keep your sex slow and steady set up a breathing pattern to match. Short, labored breaths reduce oxygenation and lead to faster climax, reports WebMD. Take deliberate breaths to stay in the race longer.
Take the top. Trade the standard missionary position for a liberating woman-on-top stance. This position reduces the stimulation to the penis, reports Men’s Health, and may make it easier for your champ to go the distance.
Tune into your arousal. To control his climax, your guy needs to know when that penultimate moment is approaching. Encourage him to listen to his body and determine just how excited he is getting. When he feels himself reaching his pinnacle, ask him to slow down and reduce his excitement level a bit before proceeding.
Seek medication. If, try as you might, your sex continues to be rapid and perhaps a little less than satisfying, ask your guy to speak with his doctor regarding potential medical interventions. Men’s Health reports that 73 percent of men who used the mood-altering drug Prozac to reduce the rate of their ejaculation were successful in their attempts.
