5 Ways to Boost your Sexual Performance in Bed
If there’s one thing all people want to know, it’s how to increase sexual stamina in the bedroom. There’s a lot of pressure on both men and women to perform and this pressure can cause sexual dysfunctions that can hinder your sexual experience.
On top of that, one partner may not have the same sexual stamina as their sexual partner. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do to improve the situation. Luckily, there’s stamina training.
Stamina training is a great way to build confidence and last longer in bed. But it’s not just about lasting longer in bed; sexual stamina training can result in more intense orgasms during climax (now we have your attention). And who doesn’t want to last longer in bed and have more intense orgasms? Exactly.
Of course, sexual endurance isn’t the only thing that improves your sexual performance in bed. Yes, the physical aspect is important, but communication is another essential component you can also work on.
However, we’re not going to focus on that right now. Our attention is on increasing your sexual stamina. Through stamina training, it will help give you stronger orgasms, and build your immune system. So, what is stamina training?
Stamina Training: The Essentials
Stamina training is about teaching your body how to last longer during sex. It sounds to-the-point and straightforward, right? Well, it’s definitely a challenge. Basically, it’s masturbating with goals in mind.
The beauty of it is that it can be as simple or complex as you’d like. So, yes, it’s a challenge, but you have the power to create a pace that’s comfortable for yourself.
To boost your sexual stamina, you’re going to practice a masturbation technique called edging. Edging is practiced during masturbation when you’re just about to orgasm, you immediately stop. By preventing yourself from orgasming, overtime, you increase your sexual stamina.
Though you can practice this during sex, it’s best to try this while masturbating alone, at least until you feel more comfortable. Practicing alone can help you gain more confidence with edging and reduce the pressure of having your partner in the room. It’s important to take this at your own pace.
Will it take time for you to master it? Absolutely. Is it going to be easy? No. We’re not going to lie to you; stamina training takes practice.
But, we want to help. Here are some useful tips to improve your sexual stamina in bed.
5 Best Practices to Improve Your Sexual Stamina
With increased stamina as your goal, we have some ways to help you achieve a better sex life. Try them out and see which ones work for you.
Get enough sleep
While you may pride yourself on being a night owl, did you know a lack of sleep can actually affect your sexual performance? The first thing you should look at is your sleeping habits. Are you getting a solid 7-8 hours of sleep every night? If not, it’s time to change that.
Stay away from screens two hours before going to bed to give your body a chance to unwind. Go to bed at the same time every night. If you can’t sleep because you’re stressed, try meditation or yoga. The better you sleep, the better sex drive you’ll have.
To succeed in improving your sexual stamina, pace yourself. When practicing edging, you need to find the rhythm that works for you. After stopping before orgasming, take a few breaths and then start again slowly.
This isn’t a race; think of this as a tease. Continue doing this until you’re ready to orgasm. Once you feel comfortable doing this, you can try edging with your partner.
Practice your Kegels
Kegels, though viewed as a female activity, is actually good exercise for both sexes. We all have pelvic floors and they need to be strengthened. So, whether you’re a man or woman, you should be practicing your Kegels. By strengthening the PC muscles, you can increase stamina and control your orgasms.
Wear a condom
Now, this one is particularly for men. People usually complain about condoms and the lack of sensation, but if you’re trying to increase your sexual stamina, consider wearing them. Desensitization will help you last longer in bed as it reduces sensitivity levels. Don’t wear condoms that contain desensitizers; just buy extra thick condoms instead.
Be mindful of your diet
We all have busy lives, which means we don’t necessarily have the time to cook a healthy three-course meal. So, we turn more to processed foods. Though they’re tasty, they’re high in fats and cholesterol, which reduce energy levels but decrease testosterone levels.
Switch the bag of chips for some carrot sticks, the soda for a bottle of water. Eating healthier foods such as fruits and vegetables not only boost your immunity but also your sex drive. You’ll notice a change in your sexual performance once you keep to a consistent diet regiment.
Increasing your sexual stamina is a challenge, but it’s one you can overcome with practice. And you know what they say, practice makes perfect. If you follow these tips and invest your time edging during masturbation, for example, you will see your sex life results.
