How long should sex last? Well, you cannot get a fixed answer mainly because the answer is ‘it depends’. You see, some people have come to embrace the quickie, especially for those that have kids or other people in their homes.
Aside from that, longer sex sessions are typically not ideal in most situations and would only be reserved for partners who have the privacy to do it.

But more importantly, sex should not be treated as a competition. It should be an activity that both partners should do in order for them to enjoy themselves.
Men typically reach orgasm far quicker than women do and whenever they ejaculate, it usually means the end of the intercourse. After that, men would undergo a refractory period where they are unable to maintain an erection for a certain amount of time. Keep in mind than women do not have such a thing.

Do keep in mind that men are naturally competitive and they want to make sure that they can last longer in bed to somehow help keep their partners satisfied.
So today, I am going to go over some things that you can try in order for you to last longer in bed.

Take Boosters

Men, especially those that are over the age of 40, should consider taking libido boosters. That is because at that age, your testosterone levels will start to decline and this is a natural process that you cannot really stop.
The reason why you’d want to take libido boosters for men is that it helps you alleviate the consequences of having lower T levels in the body.

Consider Masturbating as Your ‘Pre-game Ritual’

Remember what I said about the refractory period earlier in the article? Well, you can actually achieve that phase after you masturbate because it will still ultimately lead to ejaculation nonetheless.
The trick here is to masturbate two hours before sex. That should still help you gain the benefits of that short window of time to allow you to last longer in the sheets.

Take the ‘Edge’

Earlier in the article, I’ve mentioned that most couples have mastered the art of the quickie but doing so many of those short sex sessions could have a profound impact on your psychology.
Because of your insistence on finishing way too soon, you could have involuntarily told your brain to do the same thing whenever you engage in sexual intercourse with your partner.
If that is the case, one way for you to stop that from happening is to do the edging technique. This is where you will start to slow down and stop entirely the moment you feel that you are about to ejaculate.
This is a tried and tested technique that is usually prescribed for premature ejaculation sufferers.

Be Adventurous

Sex need not be all about penis penetration; it should be about being adventurous with your partner.
Instead of inserting your penis and delivering her to ‘pound city’, you’d want to use sex toys during foreplay as well. This might be a weird idea for most men, but trust me when a say that women love novel ideas. Plus, you might get sexually playful when using such things which could ultimately lead to a better time for both of you.
