How to Last Longer in Bed

Last Longer in Bed

Want to be a champ in the bedroom, but sometimes it just feels too good to last? Several techniques can help men last longer in bed before popping off. Give these a shot to prevent your shot.

Practice Deep Breathing

Practice deep breathing! Take deep, slow breaths during sex to help relax your body and delay ejaculation. This can help you stay present and in control, hopefully preventing you from climaxing too quickly. 

Squeeze Technique

Use the squeeze technique: This involves squeezing the base of your penis when you feel like you're about to ejaculate. This can help you pause and regain control, allowing you to last longer. 

Different Positions

Try different positions: Experiment with different sexual positions that allow you to control the pace and depth of penetration. This can help you stay in control and hold your release. 

Use a Thicker Condom

 Use a thicker condom: Using a thicker condom can help reduce the sensitivity of your penis, which can help you last longer during sex. 

Masturbate Before Sex

Clean the pipes: Masturbating a few hours before sex can help you last longer during intercourse, as your body may take longer to reach orgasm again. 


Wipe it off: some wipes and lotions can delay by desensitizing. Different solutions have different directions, but the gist is that you apply a small amount to the head and shaft of the penis before intercourse and wash the product off after intercourse.
