Asking for a mate . . . with Chantelle Otten

Each month, Men’s Health’s sex and relationship’s panellist Chantelle Otten assists you (or your mate!) with your most private and pressing bedroom concerns. This month: how can I last longer in bed?

“Dear Chantelle,

sometimes I don’t last as long as I’d like in bed. What’s your advice for improving my stamina?”

IMPROVING STAMINA IN the bedroom is a common goal for many penis owners, so you’re definitely not alone in this. Let’s break it down and dive into some tips to help you go the distance.

First up, let’s talk about cock rings. These little devices can be a game-changer when it comes to stamina. How do they work? By constricting blood flow out of the penis, they can help maintain a stronger and longer-lasting erection. Plus, they can enhance sensitivity, leading to more intense orgasms. Experimenting with different types and sizes can help you find what works best for you. Just remember to use them safely and not leave them on for too long to avoid any unwanted side effects.

Next, let’s tackle the art of edging. This technique involves bringing yourself, or your partner, close to the brink of orgasm, then backing off before reaching the point of no return. By doing this repeatedly, you can train your body to delay ejaculation and build up your stamina over time. It’s like a workout for your sexual stamina muscles. Plus, it can add a whole new level of anticipation and pleasure to your sex life.

Exploring sexual techniques further, the ‘stop-start method’ offers a hands-on way to boost stamina. It’s pretty straightforward: get stimulated up to the point where you’re just about to climax, then hit the pause button on all the action to let that excitement cool down. After cooling down for a bit, you’re back at it. Doing this a few times while you’re getting busy helps teach your body to hold off on ejaculation, slowly but surely increasing your control and lengthening the time you can keep going.

Edging and the start-stop method are all about boosting your sexual staying power and getting a grip on when you climax. The difference is, with edging, you ride the wave right up to the edge before you dial down the excitement, keeping that buzz going longer. The start-stop technique? That’s hitting the pause button completely, letting things cool off before ramping up again.

In addition to these techniques, incorporating regular exercise into your routine can also make a big difference. Cardiovascular workouts, like running or swimming, can improve blood flow and overall endurance, which can translate to better performance in the bedroom.

Strength training exercises, like squats and deadlifts, can also help boost testosterone levels, which can enhance libido and stamina.

And let’s not forget about the power of communication. Talking openly with your partner about your desires, concerns, and what feels good can lead to a more fulfilling and satisfying sexual experience for both of you. Plus, it can take some of the pressure off performance, allowing you to relax and enjoy the moment.

Lastly, don’t underestimate the importance of relaxation and stress management. Stress and anxiety can have a major impact on sexual performance, so finding healthy ways to unwind and de-stress, whether it’s through meditation, yoga, or just taking some time for yourself, can help improve your stamina in the bedroom.

Remember, it’s all about finding what works best for you and your partner, so don’t be afraid to experiment and have fun along the way.
