There are many theories about how to last longer in bed. For men who have problems with premature ejaculation, those theories can be something to study and learn about in the hope that they will allow them to live a better life. While sexual intercourse is not everything that matters, most men (and a significant number of women) rank it very highly when it comes to what they find important for quality of life. With that being the case, men who cannot last a long time in bed often feel as though they are inferior in some way because they cannot perform the way they would like.
Lasting longer in bed can be achieved, but you may need a doctor’s help. Of course, that depends on the reason for your premature ejaculation and whether you have a severe problem with it or something much more minor. Men who have severe issues with premature ejaculation and want to last longer in the bedroom may need to take antidepressants. These can work for some men because one of their side effects is difficulty having an orgasm. For men who can’t last a long time, that can be very helpful, but it’s not a side effect most people would want.
If taking antidepressants isn’t for you or your doctor doesn’t recommend them, there are easier ways to last longer. One of those ways is to distract yourself when you get close to ejaculation. Think about something else for a little while, until you regain control. Once you have control back, you can stop distracting yourself. This technique can often be done several times in a row to really prolong the sexual experience for you and your partner. It doesn’t work for all men, but it’s certainly worth trying.
There’s another thing you can do when you’re wondering how to last longer in bed. For men who often ejaculate too quickly, stopping and starting may work. It’s not always effective and you’ll need practice (which you can do with your partner or alone), but many men find that it helps them to have intercourse longer. It can also make orgasm more satisfying for some men, but like any other technique that doesn’t work for everyone. If you find that none of the simple techniques are working for you, you may also consider consulting a sexual therapist who can give you other ideas for ways to last longer in bed.
