Want to last longer in bed, but your poor bedroom stamina is preventing you from doing so? Then, we’ve gathered around some tips and tricks that will help you extend your sex sessions for as much as you like. No matter if you’re looking towards marathon sex or just a couple of minutes up, these simple tricks can help you reach your goals. But before you start working on your sexual stamina, we advise you to keep things realistic.
Research shows that the average time it takes for a man to orgasm is 2-3 minutes. So, without further ado, here are some tips to get at least an additional minute in your lovemaking.
Sex begins in mind, and if your mind is filled with worry, apprehension, and fear, the sex is not going to be good. This is especially true for men with performance anxiety for who premature ejaculation is more often than not a self-fulfilling prophecy.
To gain control over your sexual performance, you first need to gain control over your mind. Begin doing so by learning how to relax with exercise, meditation, hiking, reading, fishing, or anything that works to get you into a tranquil state.
While relaxation techniques don’t eliminate issues such as premature ejaculation completely, they, nevertheless, remove stress which tends to make premature ejaculation worse than it is.
If your sex sessions are cut short because you get tired too quickly, then you obviously lack the stamina needed for longer lovemaking. A lack of stamina is simply an indicator that you are not physically as active as you should be for optimal health and well-being. To boost your stamina, start exercising for at least 30 minutes daily, 5 times a week.
A study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that moderate exercising led to significantly greater sexual enhancement in men who were sedentary prior to taking part in the study. So, put your sneakers on and get moving.
Try Pelvic Floor Training
Men with premature ejaculation have it the hardest when it comes to treating their specific sexual performance issue. That’s simply because premature ejaculation is still poorly understood and the available treatment options don’t help all that much. But studies on pelvic floor training such as Kegel’s exercises seem promising in the treatment of this common male sexual disorder.
Pelvic floor training involves squeezing and releasing the muscles in the pelvic floor. Over time, men who practice pelvic floor training report an improvement in their ejaculation control. Since the pelvic floor is partially responsible for your ejaculatory reflex, it makes sense that strengthening these muscles should help you last longer.
What You Eat Also Matters
You are what you eat. So, if you want to be someone that gives their so long-lasting sex sessions, then consider eating sex-boosting foods. While eating a healthy and balanced diet is bound to positively affect your sex life, there are also certain foods that are notorious for helping in this area.
Popular options of sex-boosting foods include pomegranates, watermelon, figs, avocados, oysters, ginger, and dates. These foods are popularly considered as aphrodisiacs some working by improving blood flow and others by increasing sex hormone production.
Focus On Her
Another way you can enjoy sex longer is to become a generous lover. A lot of men fear that they’re not able to satisfy their partners if they don’t last long enough. A definitive way to reduce your performance anxiety is by focusing on her enjoyment and first. After all, most women don’t really orgasm during vaginal intercourse.
An article published in Psychology Today even states that only 25% of all women are orgasmic consistently during penetrative sex. What this means is that you are more likely to make your partner happy with lengthy foreplay than with intercourse alone.

Whatever the case may be, these simple tips will help you extend your bedroom time for at least a minute or two.
