Must-Read: The Key to Marathon Sex
Quick: Think about the last time you had sex, and think specifically about how long it took you to finish. If you were happy with that result, feel free to move onto the next post. If you were not happy with it, well, first thanks for being honest about it. And second, there are actual ways you can change what you’re doing in order to keep yourself from having a bit of an outburst too soon.
Which is why today we’re heading over to Men’s Health where they have a primer for how to last in bed for an hour. Among the pieces of advice they’re giving their readers:
2. The Squeeze
If you can feel your orgasm coming on, stop and squeeze right below the head of your penis. Apply firm pressure with your thumb and forefinger and focus the pressure on the urethra—the tube running along the underside of the penis, advises Ian Kerner, Ph.D., a sex therapist and author of She Comes First. The squeeze technique pushes blood out of the penis and momentarily decreases sexual tension, which represses the ejaculatory response, Kerner says. “This is another type of biofeedback, similar to edging.” Dr. Walsh adds.
3. Ladies First
When you help her finish first—whether with your mouth, your fingers, or a toy—knowing she’s enjoyed an orgasm may relieve some of the pressure you’re feeling, Kerner says.
We can certainly vouch for that last one, as we’ve put ourselves on hold quite a few times in order to give her the chance to enjoy completion. And then, with that out of the way, we’re free to loosen up and do as we please! So, head on over to the above link to check out the other ways that you can delay your orgasm, and get to doing them!
