I want you to be honest with me for a second. How long can you last in bed? If you say
that you can only last for 5 minutes or so, I believe you. In a 2005 study, 500
heterosexual men were asked to time their hot and steamy sessions with their partners.
The average time that a man can last is just a measly 5.4 minutes. In the same study,
some participants even said that they cannot last for more than 2 minutes.
Well, there are scientific explanations as to why that happens. One in ten men are
affected by a problem in sex, may it be premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction or
In this article, I will provide you with some tips that are backed by science that can help
you last longer in bed. Before we begin, you might want to buy some male supplements as these can really help you last longer in bed almost immediately.
With that being said, let’s talk more about PE.
This condition is defined as a man’s inability to control their ejaculatory responses,
resulting in a much quicker time to finish. There are actually two types of PE and that is
the Primary and the Secondary.
Primary PE is often caused by psychological problems and can affect men throughout
their lifetime if it is left untreated. Secondary PE occurs due to lifestyle changes and
So, what about erectile dysfunction? Well, this condition is defined as the man’s inability
to maintain an erection long enough for them to ejaculate.
There are a lot of causes of ED. It can be due to psychological reasons, as well as
hypertension, high cholesterol levels, Diabetes, presence of cardiovascular diseases,
and low testosterone levels (which is why this condition is prevalent in men in their 40s
Performance anxiety, you could say, is a precursor to both ED and PE. This is typically
common in younger men in that if they think that they cannot satisfy their partners, they
probably never will.
What Can Be Done?
Although performance anxiety, premature ejaculation, and erectile dysfunction are quite
common conditions that can affect men, there are some things that you can do to help
solve the problem. Here are some:
1. Increase Foreplay
Men are not especially fond of foreplay. In fact, most men would just pull their pants
down, whip their dick out, and then penetrate their partner’s vagina.
But the thing is, women operate in a much different way in that foreplay, to them, is a
big deal. So, if you cannot last long by engaging in penetrative sex, why not increase
foreplay time instead?
2. Use a Thick Condom
There are a lot of different types of condoms out there and you might already be using
one. However, you might have used the thinner ones that are quite similar to the
sensation that you feel when you are not wearing out.
Instead of using a thin condom, use a much thicker one. This can help desensitize the
penis and help mitigate the sensation a little bit.
3. Kegel Exercises
Kegel exercises and Reverse Kegels have been known to help men control their
ejaculatory responses. I suggest that you start doing them right now as they are quite
easy to do. Keep in mind that just like strengthening any other muscle in your body, it
takes time for you to see the effects.
4. Talk to Your Partner
No matter what happens, your partner is always going to be there to support you. If you
think that you are suffering from performance anxiety, be open to your partner about it.
