Having a great sex life is a big plus in every relationship. It connects two people who are in love in a more intimate way that they become closer to each other. It is a great way of expressing or showing affection too. The way you kiss, cuddle, and caress each other makes you feel that you are so much loved and wanted. However, there are problems especially among men that could hinder them from satisfying their partners. And that is the inability to stay hard longer. Premature ejaculation is one of the most common sexual problem dreaded by men. It is when a man expels semen sooner with less penile stimulation or before his partner reaches orgasm. For most men, it is very embarrassing. They tend to feel like less of a man. And so, to make sure that you stay longer in bed, here are the things that would help prevent premature ejaculation. TAKE A DEEP BREATH Taking a deep breath is one way of controlling arousal and tension that could lead to premature ejaculation. KEGEL EXERCISES Just like women, men can also do Kegel exercises that involve the pubococcygeus muscle. This muscle could be identified by trying to stop the flow of urination in midstream. Practice by trying to contract and hold it for about ten seconds and then let it go. Relax for another ten seconds then clench it again. Repeat this cycle for three to five times. Once you master doing it, you can use it as a technique to hold whenever you feel like you are about to get off during sexual intercourse. SLOW DOWN Most of the time, premature ejaculation occurs if you get too excited. Do not rush. Instead, work up your endurance and enjoy every minute of your lovemaking. SQUEEZE The head of the penis is the most sensitive part, and over-stimulation may result in premature ejaculation. If you feel like tension is starting to build up, squeeze the area just below its head. This would reduce the blood flow and would prevent you from getting off early. PULL OUT As you get more and more aroused during sexual penetration, one thing that you could do is to pull your penis out for a few seconds. This would also control the blood flow. DO NOT GO DEEP YET If you just started with your sexual activity, avoid penetrating too deep to avoid over-stimulation. Take your time and slow down.
