Last longer in bed

A man lasts during intercourse, according to studies, between 5 and 10 minutes. 71% of men are dissatisfied with this performance and would like to be able to last longer. The truth is the pressure put on men to last longer in bed is huge and often found and mocked in modern pop culture. Most men don’t want to finish first in the bedroom for fear of not living up to expectations. 

Performance stress, chronic masturbation or erectile dysfunction are factors that must be taken into account when considering the duration of sexual intercourse. Fortunately, there are some tricks you can successfully use for a long-lasting erection. Here’s what you need to do to keep your partner in bed longer:


  1. Control your breathing 

We know it sounds like trivial advice, but many men forget to breathe properly when having sex. The unfortunate result is ejaculation a few minutes or even seconds after the onset of sexual intercourse.


Here are some breathing exercises you can try:

  • Breathe through your nose and exhale through your mouth. It’s like the advice the fitness instructor gives you, but it’s very useful when you feel like ejaculating. Controlled breathing will help you to give the sexual act a constant rhythm and of course, to prolong it.
  • Diaphragmatic breathing. A rather complicated exercise, but whose results are undeniable. Often used in singing lessons for voice control, diaphragmatic breathing can help you last longer in bed. Keep in mind that you will need to practice in advance, as this type of breathing is difficult to control.


  1. Controlled Masturbation

It’s not something to be ashamed of, it’s important to masturbate to get to know your limits better. Moreover, specialists recommend masturbation with the thought of your loved one. You can masturbate until almost the moment you feel like you are going to ejaculate and stop before the inevitable happens. Keep the erection for 15 minutes. You can change the rhythm, use the start-stop technique or even change hands. By practicing you will gain more endurance.

Controlled masturbation can improve your sexual performance. Most sexologists say that sexual resistance is shaped by how much and how often a man masturbated during adolescence.


  1. Sexercises

Kegel exercises are not only for women or those suffering from bladder problems, but can also help treat patients suffering from premature ejaculation.

Kegel exercises help strengthen the muscles responsible for controlling ejaculation. If you get used to controlling the tension of those muscles, you have the opportunity to apply the exercises during sex as well.


  1. Squeeze

If you “warmed up” too much during sex and you feel that you will finish again faster than you wanted, stop for a moment and squeeze your penis. If you put pressure on the urethra, you will push the blood out of the penis and stop ejaculating for a moment.


  1. Insist more „at the entrance”

Press your partner’s clitoris with your penis, insist more on penetrating the entrance to the vagina, try not to make very wide movements when you feel that you are close to having an orgasm but you do not want this to happen.


  1. Potency medication

In some cases, your might need specific dietary supplements (potency pills) to prolong sexual intercourse. There is no shame in resorting to this method.

If erectile problems persist, we advise you to consult a specialist.


  1. Decrease sensitivity

There are certain products specifically made to decrease sensitivity, which will prevent premature ejaculation, including condoms, sprays and creams.
