If you’re interested in lasting longer in bed, you’re definitely not alone. Both men and women are interested in this topic, but men often feel that there is a lot of pressure on them to perform properly. When they don’t last that long they worry that they haven’t pleased their partner and they wonder if something is wrong with them. Unless they are always ejaculating very quickly, there probably isn’t really anything wrong. Most likely, they are just struggling with a little bit of performance anxiety because they want everything to go well and be pleasing to them and to their partner.
However, if lasting longer in bed is very difficult and a man is having trouble with premature ejaculation, it may be time for him to see his doctor and discuss treatment options. There are techniques that can be used to help a man who’s ejaculating too quickly, but it’s also possible to that there is a medical condition or another issue behind the problem. By seeing his doctor, he can make sure that there isn’t some other physical problem causing his difficulty. Some doctors also prescribe antidepressants to men who ejaculate prematurely, because some antidepressants make it more difficult to have an orgasm.
For men who simply want to last a little longer, or for men who don’t want to take antidepressants, there are two simple techniques they can use. The first is called the distraction technique. The goal is to get close to ejaculation and then think about something else, thereby delaying the orgasm. That can be done a few times throughout sexual intercourse, but it can’t be maintained indefinitely. Still, it’s one of the best ways for a man to build up a better ability to delay his orgasm.
Another technique that can be used for lasting longer in bed is the stop-start method. This is when a man stops when he gets close to ejaculation and starts again when he has regained a lot of control. Doing this a few times can make intercourse last much longer. The technique can also be practiced alone, through masturbation. If you’re concerned about premature ejaculation there’s nothing wrong with seeing your doctor, but you may also benefit from trying some simple techniques at home. There are various methods – some of them more complex – that men use to delay orgasm, and you should be able to find one that works for you.
