Did you know that the average time or one that people would consider as ‘adequate’, time for sex is just within 3-7 minutes? Well, that is according to a study that was published by the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
In the same study, women, in particular, want sex to last at least 7-13 minutes and that seems to be what the general female consensus is.
What am I trying to say? It is important that you do not have to think about lasting more than 30 minutes, just like you would normally see in porn movies.
Instead, you want to make sure that your partner is sexually satisfied and you can actually do that in a number of ways.
But, if you truly want to last longer in bed, there are a couple of things that you could do on your end. The right meal plan, adequate exercise, and taking male enhancement pills do help to some degree.
In today’s article, I will touch upon this topic as a lot of men actually want to know how to improve their sex drives without thinking about it too much.
You’re Not Winning any Gold Medals
First and foremost, I want you to change your perspective on the duration of sex. Pulling an all-nighter seems to stem either from rom-coms or any other content that depicts sexual acts. Most post-coital comments talk about how the characters have had an all-night sexcapade and that they couldn’t really stop thinking about it.
Well, you have to know that they are just characters in a TV show. Second, although longer sex sessions are good, it doesn’t mean that you should always aim for it. You have to understand that sexual satisfaction is different among individuals. What one considers a 10-minute session to be ideal, some people might prefer anything lower (or higher) than that.
Also, making love is not a marathon or a competition. It is supposed to be an activity that both partners should enjoy and not something to brag about with your friends and family.
Penetrative Sex is not the Omega
Men typically believe that penetrative sex is the end-all, be-all of sexual intercourse. Well, that is actually not true. It is natural for men to assume that mainly because the only way for them to know that they are done is if they have ejaculated. Well, women have it differently.
Even the moment when you start saying some dirty (but sexy) words to your partner, that is already part of sex for women. Foreplay and clitoral stimulation are also some really good ingredients for great sex.
So if anything, although penetrative sex is great for both partners, you also have to think about the things that lead to sexual intercourse as having an equally good impact.
Treat Your Body Well
It cannot be stressed enough- if you want to get better in bed, you want to take care of your overall health.
Make sure that you are eating the right foods (and I mean ditching processed foods and other foods that contain preservatives) and you are getting some adequate exercise in some days of the week.
Also, enough sleep is required for men to perform at their best whenever they want to have sex with their partners.
