Learn How to Last Longer in Bed

Nearly a quarter of Australian women wish their man to knew how to last longer in bed and more than half wanted “more interesting sex,” according to a survey.

Sounds like there's a lot of Aussie women who like the Stones, “can’t get no satisfaction”.

And they’re not alone.  Many men would like know how to last longer in bed too. Up to 75 per cent of men ejaculate within two to five minutes of beginning intercourse, and less than 35 per cent of men in one web- based survey felt they had any control over when they climaxed.


Sex Secrets of How to Last Longer in Bed

Eastern teaching has for thousands of years taught sex secrets which allow a man greater sexual control, by separating out the physiological processes of orgasm and ejaculation which the West regards as inseparable. 

Says Dr Joel D. Block (Sex Over 50, Penguin): “Taoist sex manuals devote a lot of space to techniques to prolong intercourse . . . these techniques have been working for thousands of years. “

And the good news is men in midlife are well positioned to learn how to last longer in bed.

Says Dr Block: “Men in midlife are far more likely to experience multiple orgasms because they have greater control of the ejaculatory process and are able to differentiate between orgasm and ejaculation.”


Training To Last Longer in Bed

There is a lot men can do to train themselves to last longer in bed with physical techniques. But if that's not an option, there are also:
  • De-sensitizing sprays available which claim to slow arousal, or
  • Condoms lined with a de-sensitizing solution
Other how to last longer products you might consider include supplements which boost sexual confidence and relieve anxiety like Herbal Ignite.

By understanding the four key physical stages of sexual response, and then following physical techniques which raise and lower arousal levels during sex, men can:
  • Gain much greater control
  • Enjoy much greater levels of sexual satisfaction
  • Last longer in bed
  • And give their partners much more pleasure


Men and Women Wired For Sex Differently

Men and women are naturally wired differently for sexual arousal. Usually men get excited very quickly, only have one or two non-orgasmic "peaks" and have a short time between arousal and orgasm.

Women usually take longer to become sexually aroused, and often experience several "waves" of higher arousal before the end of their cycle which may or may not include orgasm.

Because of these differences in sexual arousal cycles, physical adjustments need to be made if the male partner is to last longer during sex.


Factors Influencing How Long You Last in Bed

There are a range of factors which influence how to last longer in bed including:
  • Sexual position
  • Thrusting patterns
  • Sensitivity
  • Breathing & Relaxation
  • Muscular control
  • Ejaculation-slowing techniques


How Sexual Position Helps To Last Longer

The sexual positions that create the most friction for women do so for men as well. If you are having problems with ejaculating faster than you'd like to, you couldtry changing sex positions.

The best sex positions to last longer in bed are:
  • The missionary (gives man more control)
  • Variations on it like the butterfly
  • Sex while standing
  • Any position where the two of you can eye gaze and stay in deep communication


How Thrusting Patterns Affect Lasting Longer

The best lovers understand sex isn't just about in and out. And there’s a science of sexual thrusting which men who have tried it say has remarkable results for lasting longer in bed.

By varying thrusting patterns between shallow and deep you gain more control and stimulate the G-spot area more effectively.

Some of the thrusting patterns taught in Tantric and Taoist traditions include:
  • Eight shallow-one fast
  • Nine shallow one deep
  • Japanese nines
  • Valley orgasm


Breathing and Relaxation to Last Longer

When men are sexually aroused:
  • Breathing tends to become fast and shallow. By consciously slowing it, arousal can also be slowed
  • A man’s body tenses up, hastening orgasm.  Conscious relaxation techniques can slow this process.


Muscular Control to Last Longer

Learning to flex the PC muscle (the pubococcygeus) also known as the “love muscle” through a series of exercises known as Kegel exercises is one of the main tools a man can utilise when discovering how to last longer in bed.

Working the PC muscle can increase sexual pleasure for both men and women.  If you practise Kegel exercises for a couple of months you should notice:
  • Your orgasms increase in intensity
  • You have greater sexual control
When you come close to ejaculating, you can squeeze your PC muscle to lower arousal levels and last longer in bed.
 

Other control techniques involving the PC muscle include:

  • The Big Draw – pull back when ejaculation is imminent, count to nine and resume thrusting with shallow strokes. Repeat as necessary.
  • The Three Finger Draw – uses three curved fingers to apply pressure to one spot on the perineum at the moment of ejaculatory inevitability.
  • The Art of Brinkmanship – like coitus interruptus – stimulation to the point of imminent orgasm, then stop until arousal level has declined. Repeat as often as possible.


Last Longer in Bed - Practice Makes Perfect

All of these how to last longer in bed techniques take time to learn and practice. Men who have used them successfully suggest practising during masturbation before trying them with a partner.

Says one 50 year old man quoted in Dr Joel Block’s book: “As a callow youth I had so little control that I was coming by the time I sensed I was about to come. . .  As a mature man I have exquisite control, and I have learned to use this technique (the art of brinkmanship) to prolong, increase and multiply my orgasms. I really believe any man can do it, and the only thing stopping men is ignorance.”

It’s not reasonable to expect last longer in bed techniques will work first time you try them. But the men who have mastered them have no doubt the rewards of last longer in bed techniques are worth it.
