For some people, the ability to have long-lasting sex can be an important aspect of a fulfilling and enjoyable sexual experience. Here are some tips for improving endurance and lasting longer during sex:
Practice Kegel exercises: Kegel exercises are simple exercises that involve contracting and relaxing the muscles of the pelvic floor. These exercises can help to strengthen the muscles that control ejaculation and improve endurance during sex.
Focus on non-genital touch: During sexual activity, try to focus on non-genital touch, such as touching, kissing, or caressing other parts of your partner’s body. This can help to reduce the intensity of genital stimulation and improve endurance.
Use slow, controlled movements: Instead of using fast, vigorous movements during sex, try using slow, controlled movements. This can help to reduce the intensity of stimulation and improve endurance.
Explore different positions: Experimenting with different sexual positions can help to vary the intensity of stimulation and improve endurance. For example, some positions may provide less direct genital stimulation, which can help to improve endurance.
Practice mindfulness and relaxation techniques: Focusing on the present moment and practicing relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing or progressive muscle relaxation, can help to reduce performance anxiety and improve endurance.
Try using a delay spray or condom: Delay sprays or condoms that contain a mild anesthetic can help to reduce sensitivity and improve endurance. These products are available over the counter at most pharmacies.
It’s important to remember that everyone is different and that what works for one person may not work for another. If you have concerns about your endurance or sexual performance, it’s always a good idea to speak with a healthcare provider or a trusted adult.
