Premature ejaculation refers to when a man orgasms very quickly after sexual intercourse. This also causes semen to come out. However, premature ejaculation can be easily corrected and there are various measures you can take. Here are the ways that you can last longer in bed.
1. Kegel Exercises
Kegel exercises strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. This is crucial because you can use them to hold in your orgasm while keeping your erection. How this is done is by first going to the bathroom. After that, you need to lie on your back with knees bent and spread apart. You have to flex your pelvic muscle for 3 seconds and then hold the contraction for 3 seconds. You then have to relax for 3 seconds and then go again. Do 3-5 sets of these to begin with and then go to 10 sets of these repetitions if you can.
It has been said that old feelings and memories of times you had sex in the past are the cause of premature ejaculation many times. This can be cured by NLP which is neuro-linguistic programming and hypnosis.
3. Change Your Diet
Many times, a hormonal imbalance is the cause of premature ejaculation. Low levels of serotonin are one of the hormonal imbalances which cause premature ejaculation.
4. Take Medications or Supplements
SSRI medication can be prescribed as well but this may lead to erectile dysfunction. Supplements also allow you to increase your serotonin levels but do not cause erectile dysfunction.
5. Take A Comfortable Position
It is crucial that men take a position which is comfortable for them as some sexual positions are easier to last in compared to others.
6. Do Not Breathe Heavy
Men breathe heavier when about to orgasm. Control your breathing by breathing slowly in bed. This will help you last longer.
