Let’s face it—for most men, lasting longer in bed is probably one of the most difficult sexual milestones to conquer. Men want to be able to last long enough to leave their partners completely satisfied and enjoy their own experience, but this is often easier said than done.
Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to last longer in bed and finally become “that guy.” Here are five tips you can use to help make lasting longer in bed easier and more enjoyable.
1. Know your body.
Before attempting any of the tips for lasting longer in bed, it’s important that you know your body. This means being aware of your arousal levels and the signs your body gives you when you are about to orgasm. The best way to get to know your body is to practice masturbation and monitor how quickly you reach orgasm and how long it takes to get back to being aroused after ejaculation. This will give you a better understanding of how your body works and will make it easier for you to control your arousal levels when you’re with a partner.
2. Use a delay spray or cream.
Delay sprays and creams are great options if you are looking to last longer in bed. These products contain lidocaine or benzocaine, which work by numbing the penis and temporarily reducing sensation. Most delay products will last for around 30 minutes and help to delay orgasm, allowing you to last longer in bed.
3. Use the “start-stop” method.
The start-stop method is a great way to help you learn how to control your orgasm when having sex. It involves actively focusing on your arousal levels and stopping stimulation before you reach the point of no return. This way, you’ll be able to stay in control, even if your arousal levels are high.
The start-stop method works by starting sexual stimulation and then pausing for a few seconds when you’re about to orgasm. You can do this as many times as you need to in order to last longer. With some practice, you’ll eventually learn how to extend your sexual session without having to pause.
4. Try different positions.
Changing up your positions can be an effective way to last longer in bed. Some positions, such as those that allow the man to have more control over the speed and depth of penetration, can help to slow the pace of sex and give you better control over your arousal levels. Furthermore, switching positions can help to take the focus off of orgasm, allowing you to last longer and enjoy yourself more.
5. Focus on foreplay.
Foreplay can be a great way to last longer in bed. When the focus is on pleasure, rather than orgasm, you’re more likely to enjoy yourself, relax and focus on enjoying the sensations. Spending time on foreplay can also help to delay orgasm, allowing you to last longer in bed.
These five tips should help you to last longer in bed and have better sex. Of course, everyone’s body is unique, so being aware of your own arousal levels and knowing what works best for you is essential when it comes to lasting longer in bed. With the right techniques and some practice, you’ll be well on your way to becoming “that guy” and having better sex.
