The Things that You Can Do to Prolong Sex

The Things that You Can Do to Prolong Sex

How long do you last in bed? To be clear, there is no definite answer.

So long as both couples are happy with the amount of time they spend doing penetrative sex, then that would be okay. If they are happy doing it in just 5 minutes or so, then there is no problem with that.

However, if we are going to look for studies, there is one that suggests that the average time for penetrative sex should last at least 5.4 minutes. That data is measured from the
500 heterosexual couples that were the main participants of the study.

Men, in particular, cannot last long in bed, compared to their female counterparts. That is because they might suffer from various medical conditions that will render them unable to have sex for more than a set time period.

Premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction are two of the most common causes of men finishing the job way too early.

Premature ejaculation is a condition wherein men have an uncontrollable urge to ejaculate, especially after penetrating a woman’s vagina.

Conversely, erectile dysfunction, as the name implies, renders a man unable to maintain an erection long enough to ejaculate.

It is possible that a man is afflicted with both medical conditions, but it is usually just one or the other, with PE being more prevalent than ED.

What can a man do to prolong sex? Well, certain supplements for men can help with that, along with exercises and physical therapies as well.

In today’s article, you will find out about things that can help prolong sex.


Before seeking medical attention, there are certain things that you can do on your own that will help you prolong sex. Here are some:

  • Masturbate Before Sex- Masturbating an hour or two before sex can help desensitize your penis from the complete sensation that you normally feel sans masturbating. This is due to the refractory period, which is a short period of time
    that men’s bodies require to get back into the game.
  • Practice Slow Breathing- Taking slow and deep breaths will allow you to calm your body and mind. Usually, men ‘arrive too early’ because of the tempo of the game. Slow breathing may help you immensely as it allows you to take your time and be more mindful of the present situation.
  • Try Different Positions- There are certain positions that will bode well for the penis as it provides maximum stimulus on the male reproductive system.

However, this should not be the case for people who are suffering from either ED or PE. Try different positions- ones that do not give maximum stimulation to the penis.


If you have PE, then I highly suggest that you consider taking couples therapy. A counselor can help both you and your partner get by through this difficult situation and may even provide you with certain tips and medications that you can take that will help alleviate the problem.
