The moment you know that there might be a potential chance to have sex with your lady, you start preparing yourself mentally and physically to pleasure her like never before. You try to convince yourself that you’re going to last long in bed and leave her asking for more. Then comes the big night and then, in less than 2 minutes, you cum.
Sounds familiar? If yes, don’t fret because you’re not alone. Statistics show that every 1 in 10 men suffers from premature ejaculation. In fact, according to Thomas J. Walsh, M.D., a urologist at the University of Washington, “Premature ejaculation is a problem that affects almost every man at some point in his life.”
There are two main types of Premature Ejaculation: Primary Premature Ejaculation and Secondary Premature Ejaculation.
Primary PE: It is often psychological and happens when the man first becomes sexually active. With time and experience, the man is able to perform well in bed and last longer.
Secondary PE: It occurs in the later stages of a man’s life due to physical, mental and psychological triggers like body image issues, stress, depression, etc. With proper self-care and treatment, everything goes back to normal.
However, if your ejaculation time is less than 2 minutes, it’s a sign of help and like always we are here to help! Listed below are some tips that will surely help you last longer in bed.
Engage in good foreplay: A good and intimate foreplay session increases the duration and the joy of sex.
Masturbate before sex: Having a solo session an hour or two before the main session can considerably help delay ejaculation during sex.
Start-stop technique: During intercourse, if you feel like you’re about to climax, stop and wait till the sensation goes away. Start again and continue the pattern till you reach the point of the inevitable climax.
Squeeze technique: Just when you feel like you’re about to ejaculate, squeeze the tip of your penis for 10-20 seconds till the sensation goes away.
Distract yourself: If you feel like you’re about to finish soon, distract yourself by thinking of a song, last night’s football game or anything else in the world. If it helps you delay your ejaculation, you’re good.
Maintain the same momentum: Many men finish too soon because they thrust very hard and fast in the very beginning itself. The key is to maintain a good and constant momentum which will help you last longer.
