Things to Do to Increase Sexual Stamina

Lasting longer in bed is a goal for a lot of guys, whether they just want to extend the pleasure party or are eager to make sure their partners have an equally stellar time in the sack. Luckily, there is a lot you can do to easily boost your sexual stamina. While your own results may vary, here are some tips for prolonging that loving feeling.

Get a Check-Up

Before anything else, visit your doctor if you're in any way concerned about your sexual performance or have questions about your stamina. Lifestyle habits – think what you eat and how often you work out – and medical issues can affect your sex life in various ways. Even too much stress or certain medications can interfere with your performance in bed. So, it's best to get a pro's opinion if something seems off.

Play Around with Your Solo Sex Technique

Masturbation is a great way to flex (and challenge) your stamina. Try bringing yourself to the brink of almost climaxing, then ease up, then back to the brink. Doing this will allow you to control your moment of orgasm more efficiently when you're actually doing the deed. Also play with mimicking how sex feels when you're with your partner – the tightness in particular. If your solo technique is different than your coupled technique, it's harder to get results from your practice.

Embrace Lube

Lube is an awesome way to boost pleasure for both you and your partner – and it also helps increase stamina. According to research published in "The Journal of Sexual Medicine," men who use lube with condoms last longer than those who don't. If you're not a lube guy (yet…) check out Durex® Massage & Play Sensual lubricant for a sexy, silky experience. You won't get busy without it again.

Pay Attention to Your Breathing

Staying relaxed during sex can be a challenge since you're, more than likely, super excited and raring to go. Hello, you are having sex. But practicing some deep breathing in the moment will help slow things down and even help you release tension – after all, stress can be a total stamina-killer. Making your breath rhythmic and even will allow you to make the moment last.
