Thanks to a plethora of societal and cultural pressures, many men worry about how long they last in bed.
Of course, no guy wants to be the ‘One Minute Man’, but too many men believe that the length of time they last in bed is a measure of their masculinity and their ability to please their woman.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
According to a study of 500 couples, the average time for a man to climax is just 5 ½ minutes.
It’s far from the 40-minute marathon pounding sessions that many guys imagine they should be capable of!
That being said, if ejaculation regularly occurs before the two minutes mark, there may be a problem.
However, if you and your partner are happy with the sex, there’s no real problem!
We realize that there are a variety of both medical and non-medical reasons why a guy might want to last longer in bed.
You may be suffering from a medical condition such as premature ejaculation, or you may be perfectly healthy and just want to become a sex Olympian!

That’s why we put together this complete guide to lasting longer in bed.
We’ll explore the diverse range of reasons why you may want or need to last longer in bed.
We’ll address each of these reasons and suggest specific health tips, behavioral changes, and treatments that you can explore.

1. How long is long enough?
As we noted, 5 ½ minutes is the average time for ejaculation to occur, according to a recent study.
Although doctors suggest that regularly ejaculating in under two minutes may indicate that there is a problem, this number isn’t set in stone.
(One study suggests that men who ejaculate in under one minute have “definite” premature ejaculation and those ejaculating between one and one and a half minutes have “probable” PE.)
In other words, if you and your woman are both happy and fulfilled by intercourse then there is nothing to worry about.
Interestingly, women are far less likely than men to define an orgasm or ejaculation as ‘premature’.
So the ‘issue’ may simply be your perception of your performance and a desire to last longer than anything serious.
If the issue affects you, or your partner, and is lowering the quality of your sex life, it’s worth investigating further by seeking professional medical advice.
2. I’m the ‘One Minute Man’! What’s the cause?
If you regularly struggle to reach the two-minute mark, there may be an issue.
If you’re like most guys, the internet is probably your first port of call.
The trouble is, there are many reasons for not lasting long enough in bed – both physical and emotional – and trying to diagnose yourself is ill-advised.
That’s why we always suggest that you visit your local GP to discuss the issue further.
The most common medical reasons for ejaculating early or not lasting very long in bed are:
- Performance anxiety
- Premature ejaculation (PE)
- Erectile dysfunction (ED)
These are all very common problems and affect most men at some point during their lifetime.
An estimated 10 percent of men experience a problem relating to sex such as PE or ED at some point during their lives.
We’ll explain each of these three conditions and give tips and advice on dealing with them.
It’s important to stress that these are medical conditions that can only be properly diagnosed by a medical professional such as your local GP.
3. What is Performance anxiety and how do you treat it?
If you’d like to last longer in bed and are worried about how long you’ll last, you may be suffering from performance anxiety.
This is very common and normal in younger men and almost every man will have experienced performance anxiety at some point or other.
However, if left untreated, performance anxiety can sometimes develop into PE or ED later on.
That’s why it may be worth considering counseling. This will help you address any underlying psychological issues that may be causing performance anxiety.
Counseling isn’t a quick fix and you can use any of the advice and tips in this guide to last longer in bed in the meantime.
4. What is Premature ejaculation (PE)?
There is no specific definition of premature ejaculation but it generally refers to a man ejaculating in less than two minutes during regular intercourse.
PE shouldn’t be confused with Erectile dysfunction (ED) which is when you cannot achieve and/or maintain an erection sufficient for intercourse.
ED can include losing your erection during sex, which could be one of the reasons why you don’t last as long as you’d like.
If you think you may have either PE or ED, you can take a free online assessment or book an appointment with your GP to get it checked out.
If a medical professional confirms that you have PE, they will inform you that there are two main types of PE: Primary PE and Secondary PE.
This is a psychological condition and begins when men first become sexually active. If left untreated, it can remain a lifelong issue.
If you have always ejaculated prematurely since your first sexual experience, you may be suffering from Primary PE.
This form of PE begins later in life and can be caused by both physical and/or psychological factors. These could include:
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Damaged veins and arteries
- Damaged nerves in the pelvic area
- Lifestyle factors such as smoking, drinking, stress, overwork, anxiety
- Low Testosterone levels (although this is very rare)
Many of these factors are common to sufferers of both PE and ED. That’s why it’s important to seek professional guidance.
5. How to treat Premature ejaculation
A consultation with your doctor will help you determine whether you suffer from Premature ejaculation and which type – Primary or Secondary – you have. Treating PE will depend on your diagnosis.
If you have Secondary PE, a full health check-up will reveal whether any physical issues such as high blood pressure, diabetes or prostate conditions.
Following the advised medical treatment for those conditions should help alleviate your PE.
You may have to make lifestyle changes such as exercising more, losing weight, quitting smoking or cutting back on alcohol. It depends on your diagnosis.
As Primary PE is a psychological condition, counseling is the best solution to identify and address longstanding issues.
If you have Secondary PE, you may also find counseling helpful to deal with underlying causes.
A professional counselor can help you understand any psychological reasons why you may be climaxing too soon. Possible reasons could include:
- Dissatisfaction with your relationship
- Stress and/or overwork
- Negative feelings related to sexual performance.
7. Prescription treatments
While counseling can help to resolve engrained feelings and emotions, it takes time to work.
In the interim period, there is a range of effective prescription treatments that can help you deal with both Primary and Secondary PE.
Taken orally, Priligy is a highly effective prescription tablet that helps you last longer in bed.
It works by delaying the chemical reactions that cause ejaculation.
Priligy is a widely-prescribed medicine that has a successful track record of helping men who are suffering from PE.
It should only be prescribed by a medical professional and used as directed.
Once Priligy-users become accustomed to lasting longer in bed, they can gradually reduce their dosage and taper off the medicine.
To compliment Priligy, EMLA is a cream treatment that you apply to your penis prior to intercourse. EMLA works by desensitizing the nerve endings in the tip of your penis.
Phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors
Viagra (Sildenafil) is part of a group of medicines known as phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors that are routinely prescribed to treat erectile dysfunction (ED).
Although many men try Viagra in the belief that it will help them last longer in bed, this medicine is only effective for men who are unable to achieve or maintain an erection.
However, some guys with PE use PDE inhibitors such as Viagra to continue having sex after they have orgasmed.
Your erection will still go down after you orgasm, but erections are easier to get back.
Viagra is the most widely known PDE inhibitor but there is a range of alternatives you can explore:
Cialis (Tadalafil) has the longest-lasting effects of any PDE inhibitor.
Unlike Viagra, Levitra isn’t affected by alcohol or food and lasts just as long.
Compared with Viagra that usually takes around one hour to take effect, Spedra works in as little as 20 minutes and is the fastest-acting PDE inhibitor on the market today.
Alprostadil is applied directly to the penis and doesn’t last as long as other treatments.
What all of these medicines have in common is that they are designed to treat ED, not PE, and should only be prescribed by a medical practitioner and used as described.
Contrary to popular belief, masturbation is perfectly healthy and natural.
If practiced regularly, it can help build up your stamina and reduce the sensitivity of your penis.
Regularly masturbating is an excellent way of training yourself to last longer in bed.
It is also a great way to practice the various behavioral techniques outlined below before you try them out with your partner.
How to use masturbation to last longer in bed
Whether you suffer from PE or simply want to last longer, masturbation is a way of training yourself to delay ejaculation.
The main technique is to masturbate until you are almost about to climax and then to stop or reduce the speed.
Regular practice will help to desensitize your penis and this will help you to last longer in bed.
9. Kegel exercises
Kegel exercises help to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and will help you last longer in bed.
If you think that Kegel exercises are just for women, think again.
Your pelvic floor muscles primarily support your bladder and bowel but they also affect your sexual function.
How to find your pelvic floor muscles
If you aren’t sure what these muscles are or where they are, try to stop yourself urinating midstream.
As you tense up, you’ll be able to identify the muscles at work.
To perform a Kegel exercise you simply contract and then relax these muscles in order to strengthen them.
You can do Kegel exercises in any position including lying down, sitting, standing or even while walking.
How to do Kegel exercises
When you start off, you may find it easier to do Kegel exercises while lying down.
Simply squeeze the muscles as if you are trying to stop yourself from urinating.
Hold the squeeze for three seconds and then relax. That’s one repetition.
Try to do ten repetitions per session and three sessions per day.
While Kegel exercises are most helpful for men who suffer from incontinence, they also improve your sexual function and may help you last longer in bed.
Making them a part of your daily routine can give you results within a few weeks to a few months.
10. Behavioral techniques
Whether you suffer from PE or just want to develop porn-star levels of sexual endurance, behavioral techniques are one of the best ways to last longer in bed.
Behavioral techniques can help you to ‘unlearn’ the habit of premature ejaculation and have sex for longer.
Some of these techniques will take time and discipline to master but they should produce permanent results.
As a caveat, you may need professional advice on how to benefit from these techniques.
We recommend practicing behavioral techniques while masturbating so you are more comfortable using them during sex.
The ‘Squeeze’ Technique
When you’re about to climax during intercourse, withdraw and firmly squeeze the tip of your penis using your thumb and index finger to prevent ejaculation.
You can practice this while masturbating by taking yourself to the point of climax and then squeezing hard.
Squeeze for a few seconds until the urge to ejaculate diminishes.
The ‘Stop-Start’ Technique
This technique calls for you to reduce stimulation when you are about to climax.
You can practice this while masturbating by simply stopping when you are close to ejaculating.
You can also try this technique during intercourse by withdrawing from your partner.
This technique can help you last longer in bed if practiced regularly.
If you’re worried that your woman will complain about you stopping mid-flow, just go down on her!
She’ll love it and you’ll get a chance to prepare yourself for the next round.
The ‘Slow-Down’ Technique
As a general rule, rapid thrusting will result in a faster climax.
Therefore, using a slower, more measured technique will delay ejaculation and give your penis less stimulation, helping you to last longer.
The ‘Testical-Tug’ Technique
Have you ever noticed that your testicles actually get tighter to your body as you’re about to orgasm?
A great way to last longer is to give your scrotum a sharp downward tug when you feel yourself getting close to climaxing.
Simply hold your scrotum – not your testicles! – and tug it sharply.
This loosens up your sack and brings you back from the point of climax.
With regular practice, this technique can help to keep you in the game for longer!
The ‘Cheek-Bite’ Technique
Giving yourself a jolt of pain is a time-tested way of delaying ejaculation.
When you feel you’re about to ejaculate, bite the inside of your cheek – or bite one of your fingers – really hard.
This can help to dial down your erection and re-center yourself for a few extra minutes of action.
11. Mental techniques
If practiced regularly, mental techniques are almost as effective as behavioral techniques in terms of helping you to last longer in bed.
We suggest practicing these techniques while you masturbate and then using them during sex.
If you suffer from either performance anxiety, PE or ED, mental techniques are a great place to start as you are dealing with fundamentally psychological conditions.
Mental techniques are also great if you’re perfectly healthy and just want to pound your woman like a Trojan warrior!
Forcing yourself to focus on something other than sex will reduce your enjoyment during intercourse but it is one of the best ways to last longer.
If you focus your attention on something boring such as the weather or a math problem, you should be able to delay ejaculation.
If this sounds too forced or corny, try breaking down the moment in your head:
My arms ache. Sweat is dripping down my back. The bed is creaking. Must tighten the bolts when I get a chance.
This dull, mundane type of thinking will help you to focus on something other than yourself and should keep you from climaxing.
Focus on her
The second technique is to focus on your woman’s pleasure instead of your own.
You can fantasize about doing this while you masturbate and then try it for real during intercourse.
Allow yourself to focus on your woman’s ecstasy and on helping her to climax.
As with mental distraction, this technique helps you to take the focus away from yourself.
12. Communication is key
Discussing before sex with your woman about your turn-ons and turn-offs can help you last longer.
If there’s a particular position that gets you there sooner than you’d like, it’s a good idea to let your partner know so that you can avoid it.
Don’t be afraid to express your concerns about not lasting long enough with your woman. Honesty isn’t a sign of weakness!
If she’s into you, she’ll help you out. Who knows, it could change your life!
If having a discussion sounds too scary, try telling your woman during intercourse that you’re getting there and ask her to change the position or tempo.
Wearing a condom is one of the most practical ways of lasting longer in bed.
Condoms decrease sensitivity and therefore usually increase the time it takes to ejaculate.
Here are some tips on choosing the right condoms to last longer in bed.
Use thick condoms
Thicker condoms are safer as they’re less likely to accidentally break during intercourse so are usually branded as Extra Safe.
However, they are also great at helping you last longer in bed.
Thicker condoms will provide less stimulation and increase the time it takes you to orgasm.
Climax control condoms
Many manufacturers, including Durex, produce climax control condoms.
These vary between brands but often feature thicker latex and special lubricant that desensitizes your penis.
For instance, the Durex Performax Intense range features ribs and dots to maximize your woman’s pleasure and special delay lubricant to help prolong your pleasure.
If you’ve ever wondered how porn stars keep going for so long, you may not realize quite how much lubricant they use!
Lube is a godsend for anyone wanting to last longer in bed. Here are two ways that you can effectively use lubricant to last longer in the sack.
Use a lot of lube
A lesser known advantage of lubricant is that using a lot of it can help to delay ejaculation.
Generous amounts of lube will act as a kind of ‘glove’ around your penis.
This will reduce the stimulation you feel during intercourse and help you delay your ejaculation.
A number of manufacturers sell special delay lubricant that will help maximize your endurance.
This is the same type of lube found in climax control condoms.
Using delay lube is less convenient than using climax control condoms but you can apply more to further desensitize your penis.
You can also buy creams or sprays that contain the same active ingredients and use them in conjunction with lube.
15. The best oral sex positions to last longer in bed
Sex is more than simply penetration. There are many other ways for you and your woman to pleasure each other.
Foreplay can greatly increase the sexual experience in terms of both time and pleasure.
If you suffer from PE, foreplay can lengthen the lovemaking session.
If performance anxiety is an issue, foreplay can help allay your concerns that you’ll finish before your woman is satisfied.
If you are very skillful, you can help your woman orgasm before you even begin penetrative sex!
If PE affects your lovemaking, there are a number of ways to prevent this.
The first solution is to wear a condom while receiving fellatio.
This will help to desensitize your penis to the stimulation and delay ejaculation.
The second option is to use oral sex positions that reduce the chances of climaxing too soon.
Here are three oral sex positions that will help you last longer in bed.
#1. The ‘Sixty Nine’ position
The ‘Sixty Nine’ position is a great foreplay position as very few people are able to climax while simultaneously giving and receiving oral sex.
To try this position, you lie on your back and have your woman place her knees either side of your shoulders.
She reaches forward to give you a blowjob while you eat her out!
The demands of performing cunnilingus should provide enough of a distraction for you to delay your climax.
#2. The ‘Crouching Tiger’ position
The ‘Crouching Tiger’ position (also known as the ‘Zombie’) is a great oral sex position to try if you want to last longer in bed.
To try this position, simply sit on the bed and have your woman straddle your thighs.
She bends forward and starts to give you a blowjob while you stimulate her orally.
As the ‘Crouching Tiger’ puts you in an upright seating position, you’ll find it much easier to delay your orgasm.
Your woman’s downward-facing position will make it harder for her to provide strong stimulation to your penis.
Combined with the distraction of eating her out, you’ll find yourself lasting much longer than usual in this position.
#3. The ‘Inverted Elevator’ position
The ‘Inverted Elevator’ oral sex position (also known as the ‘Standing 69’ or ‘Pisces’) is a terrific position for lasting longer in bed.
To try it, pick your woman up around her waist while facing her and twist her around.
By wrapping your arms around her middle, you’ll be able to support her weight.
She can give you a blowjob in this position while you eat her out.
This position uses elements of the physical and mental distraction techniques we discussed earlier.
You’ll quickly tire of holding your woman in this position and the physical effort and muscular discomfort will help take your mind away from the sexual act and last much longer in bed.
16. The best sex positions to last longer in bed
Every guy has a favorite sexual position that gets them there quickly so the simple solution to lasting longer is to avoid whichever your favorite position is!
Switching up positions during intercourse is a great way to last longer in bed.
If you’re getting too close, changing the angle and tempo can make the sex feel completely different and help you last longer.
Don’t be afraid to just stop and start going down on your woman mid-sex. She’ll love it and you’ll get a chance to recover.
Here are three great sex positions that will help you last longer in bed.
#1. The ‘Cowgirl’ position
In general, women-on-top positions such as the ‘Cowgirl’ position will lengthen the time it takes you to climax.
To try the ‘Cowgirl’, lie on your back and have your woman straddle you.
As she is on top, she has complete control over the depth and pace of the penetration.
She can raise herself up for shallower penetration or lower herself for deeper penetration.
If you are getting too close to climaxing, just let her know to switch up the position or tempo.
Although you can thrust upwards in this position, you have far less control and will generally find that it takes you longer to climax.
There are many variations of the ‘Cowgirl’ position, such as the ‘Reverse Cowgirl’ where she faces away from you.
#2. The ‘Spoon’ position
Spooning is a great sexual position as it only really allows for shallow penetration.
Both of you lie on your sides and face each other.
She raises one of her legs to let you enter her and then closes her legs.
This prevents you from thrusting deeply and forces you to use circular or grinding motions.
If you need deep penetration to orgasm, this position can help you last longer in bed.
It will give you limited stimulation and can help you delay your ejaculation.
#3. The ‘Superman’ position
If you want to last longer in bed, the ‘Superman’ is one of the best positions to try.
It’s only really practical if your woman is petite or if you are very strong, but most couples can master it with practice.
To try the Superman, move behind your woman and wrap your arms around her waist.
As she leans forward, you enter her from behind and she wraps her legs around your lower back.
She supports herself by placing her arms on your thighs. You can support her by holding her hips.
The Superman is great for lasting longer as it’s so physically demanding.
This helps you apply the mental and behavioral techniques described earlier in this guide.
The stress and strain of holding your woman in this position will help to take your mind off the sexual pleasure.
You’ll be preoccupied with the physical effort of holding your woman up and should be able to last longer than usual.
17. Sex Toys
To complement the techniques, tips, and tricks discussed so far, there is a wide range of sex toys that will help you last longer in bed.
Delaying ejaculation takes practice and toys are a great way to enhance your masturbation sessions and in turn, improve your lovemaking endurance.
Masturbators are a type of sex toy also known as ‘masturbation sleeves’ or ‘masturbator cups’ that can help you last longer in bed.
Almost all masturbators are made from silicone and most will have been molded from real vaginal, anal and oral openings.
Perhaps the most well-known brand name is Fleshlight:
Masturbators come in a huge range of shapes and sizes but generally fit into one of two categories:
Cup masturbators commonly feature a plastic outer case with a removable silicone insert.
They are molded to resemble vaginal, anal or oral openings at one end and contain bumps and ridges along their inner cavity.
Cup masturbators may be either vibrating or non-vibrating and some battery-operated models feature a mechanical thrusting action for hands-free use.
You can also buy stand-alone silicone masturbators that are molded from the pussy, ass or mouth of real models.
Some masturbators resemble just the buttocks while others resemble the entire upper-torso minus the arms.
These are sometimes referred to as ‘Married mans’ models as they are easier to hide or conceal than fully fledged sex dolls.
With regular use, masturbators can help you learn how to prolong ejaculation and are a great way to practice all of the behavioral and mental techniques described earlier in this guide.
The longer you can last while using a masturbator, the longer you’ll be able to last during sex.
Frequent use of masturbators can help to desensitize your penis and improve your ability to control your orgasms.
Most manufacturers recommend wearing a condom and using lubricant while using masturbators.
This gives you a good way of experiencing sensations similar to real intercourse without any of the anxiety associated with premature ejaculation.
Some brands such as Fleshlight even sell kits directly aimed at men who want to last longer.
For example, Fleshlight’s Vaginal Stamina Training Unit resembles a vagina and contains an inner silicone sleeve that is packed with bumps.
These bumps provide a huge amount of stimulation and can help you control your urge to ejaculate.
19. Sex dolls
To last longer in bed, you need to practice, practice, practice! Unfortunately, not all of us get as much practice as we’d like.
Besides masturbation, the cheapest and most convenient way to simulate sex is to buy a masturbator.
But these don’t really give you the sense of physically being with a woman.
That’s why one of the best ways to get more practice is to use a sex doll:
Sex dolls allow you to realistically simulate real sexual positions and can help you deal with any anxiety associated with premature ejaculation.
Although considered taboo by many men, sex dolls can help to keep you supple and limber for when the need arises.
As with masturbators, an enormous variety of sex dolls can be found on the market today:
The cheapest type of dolls are inflatable and made from PVC.
Their oral and vaginal openings are molded into the shape of real women.
More premium models feature removable silicone inserts (similar to masturbation sleeves) for the oral and vaginal openings.
Although these dolls can be deflated, doing so takes time and is largely impractical on a regular basis.
Mid-range sell dolls carry price tags of a few hundred dollars and up.
They are generally non-posable and offer limited levels of realism.
Most mid-range silicone sex dolls come with removable silicone inserts for the vaginal, oral and/or anal openings.
Metal skeleton sex dolls
The most advanced silicone sex dolls come with price tags ranging into the thousands of dollars and every aspect of them – from their hair color to their physical dimensions – can be specified by the customer when they place their order.
These high-end dolls have internal metal skeletons and their joints are fully articulated, offering a wide range of realistic poses.
Sex dolls are a great way to get more practice and learn some of the behavioral and mental techniques required to last longer in bed.
They are less practical than masturbators and require more on-going care and cleaning.
20. Penis pumps
Penis pumps are generally aimed at sufferers of erectile dysfunction (ED) as they are also good for penis health and can improve the strength and duration of your erection.
This makes them ideal for ED sufferers as they help to give you a better erection that will last until you climax.
However, penis pumps can also be helpful for men with PE. Regular use can help to desensitize your penis and this can help you to last longer in bed.
How to choose the right penis pump
Older models of penis pumps use a constriction ring that fits around the base of your penis.
As there is no one-size-fits-all, they typically come packaged with a range of rings to accommodate different sized penises.
The latest models of penis pumps actually use water to ensure that a safe, even vacuum is applied over the entire penis.
We suggest looking for pumps that use this method as they are safer and more comfortable for your penis.
How to use a penis pump
Using penis pumps regularly for 15 minutes per day as part of your shower or bathroom routine can help you last longer in bed.
Penis pumps create an intense feeling of stimulation as they form a vacuum around your penis.
If you suffer from PE, regularly using a penis pump can help you get used to this intense stimulation.
Within a few weeks or months of regular use, you may find it easier to last longer in bed.
21. Penis rings
Most people associate penis rings with pleasure-enhancing devices but they are also great for ED sufferers as a way of improving erections.
Although there is no scientific proof that penis rings improve erections, they are commonly used alongside other ED treatments.
Penis rings are also effective if you suffer from PE as they reduce the rate at which blood leaves your penis.
Penis rings fit around the base of your penis to apply pressure to the blood vessels.
This can increase the duration of your erection.
If you climax early, penis rings make it easier to get your erection back, especially if used in conjunction with a PDE inhibitor such as Viagra.
How to choose a penis ring
Penis rings can be either adjustable or non-adjustable and there are actually three different types of penis rings:
- Penis ring
These devices fit around the penis and can delay orgasm while increasing They are proven to work with other treatments.
- Penoscrotal Ring
This type of ring fits around the base of your penis and your testicles. They delay orgasm and increase pleasure but there’s no evidence to show that they help treat ED.
- Testicle ring
These devices fit only around the testicles. They delay orgasms and increase pleasure, and according to one case study, they have been shown to help ED.
How to use a penis ring
You can use a penis ring while masturbating or during intercourse.
We suggest testing the ring while you are alone and becoming comfortable wearing it before you try it in the bedroom.
Here’s a quick guide to getting started:
Slide the ring over the head of your erect penis. Roll the ring down your shaft right to the base.
Slip your testicles into the ring first while your penis is flaccid. Push the head of your penis through the ring and then pull the rest of your shaft through.
The ring should be flush with the base of your penis and scrotum.
As with the penoscrotal ring, you put your testicles through the ring one-by-one.
The testicle ring will hang on top of your testicles, not sit at the base of your scrotum.
Are penis rings dangerous?
If you experience pain or any sensation of numbness, swelling or bulging, you should immediately remove the ring.
If the ring cuts off blood flow to your penis, you may put yourself at risk of gangrene.
If you are unable to remove the ring, contact your nearest accident and emergency department immediately.
Ultimately, there is a wide range of reasons why you may want or need to last longer in bed.
We’ve explained the most common issues that you’ll likely face and have shown you multiple ways to treat and overcome them.
While we’re confident that all of these techniques will produce results, we’re big believers in the power of synergy and suggest using a combination of approaches to see results!
