How to Increase your Sexual Stamina

Stamina, or the ability to last in the bedroom, is something that many people desire to improve. The primary problem is that there is no fool-proof way to increase sexual stamina over time, but there are some techniques that you can employ to help improve your overall stamina and sexual satisfactions. Here are a few things to try out if you’re not satisfied with the amount of time you’re spending in the bedroom.

Time is Of the Essence

A lot of men think that their stamina is lacking if they’re not spending 30 minutes to an hour thrusting away. This is an enormous myth that needs to be debunked right now. The Journal of Sexual Medicine conducted a study that concluded that the optimal time for sex was between 3 and 13 minutes. T he average couple spent only 7.3 minutes on vaginal intercourse. This doesn’t include foreplay, which will be discussed in a moment.

Foreplay is essential to a healthy and satisfying sexual relationship. Not only does it help the woman prepare for penetration by producing natural lubricant, it makes both parties more likely to reach orgasm by increasing the overall sensuality of the situation. Again, just thrusting away isn’t going to get it done, at least not for her. Spend some time exploring each other’s bodies and turning each other on before you get down to the deed. You’ll find that your overall experience is much more satisfying and you’ll think less about the amount of time you spend actually having sex.

Look into Sexual Performance Tools

The FDA recently improved a topical medication designed to aid men who suffer from early ejaculation. It absorbs into the skin of the penis and affects the nerves that control ejaculation rather than simply numbing the entire penis like a lot of over the counter products do. This allows you to enjoy the sensations of sex without worrying about ejaculating too soon. It is currently only available by prescription so it will require a trip to your doctor to obtain it.

Masturbation is a great tool for increasing your sexual stamina.

For many men, the more you masturbate, the longer it will take for you to ejaculate.

If you cum quickly even when taking care of things yourself, consider using the stop-start method. This method consists of stimulating yourself until you are close to an orgasm, then allowing yourself to calm down slowly. Continue this method to learn your responses to each level of arousal. This self-stimulation also tends to make men more confident in the bedroom, so it’s a win-win situation.


If you’re not satisfied with your sexual stamina, you are not alone. Don’t think that you’re condemned to a life of quickies though. Spend some time learning your own reactions and responses before you step into the bedroom. You’ll find that both you and your partner will get more out of your sessions together.
