Week 29-How can men “last longer”?

March 13, 2009

To receive the weekly question per text, text FACTS to 90999.

It is not uncommon for men to have trouble lasting a long time or dealing with premature ejaculation.  Men last between 5 and 10 minutes during sex and about 71% wish they could last longer.

There are several exercises to help with lasting longer and ejaculating when you want to,  not prematurely.  

It is essential you know how your body responds to stimulation. Begin by paying attention to your body’s natural response cycle while you masturbate.  For example, knowing when that “tickling” sensation occurs right before ejaculation can help you know what is coming next.  As they say “master your masturbation

Kegel exercises, especially the Kegel “squeeze”, can help control ejaculation. Don’t fantasize too much when you are trying to control your responses. Stop thinking of your orgasm and focus on what’s happening now.  The part of your brain that triggers orgasm is working – whether you’re trying to have an orgasm or postpone it.  Think about your partner and what is happening for her/him.

Condoms can help with lasting longer AND they are the “in” thing right now.

Talk with your partner and bring her/him into your plans for having a long lasting and good time.

Planned Parenthood of Northern New England’s Education Department carefully selects all weekly questions. All questions are actual inquiries made to PPNNE by college-aged students.
