Numerous surveys over the past decade have confirmed that emotional connection, communication, experimentation and even cuddling are all essential components of an exciting sex life. But the one thing that couples always seem to agree upon makes a sex life above average? It’s the frequency of orgasms.

Although there is some debate about whether or not you need to have an orgasm to have great sex, one thing everyone can agree on is the existence of the all-too-real orgasm gap.

If you ask women, “What is most likely to prevent you from having an orgasm?” one of the most common responses would be, “My partner doesn’t last long enough!”

Known to be a source of sexual dissatisfaction among couples, the dreaded orgasm gap stems from the fact that men, on average, take just over five minutes to reach their climax, while Women who are able to orgasm through intercourse can take up to 18 minutes.

With women wanting men to last longer, and most men agreeing that longer lasting sex results in more intense orgasms, more and more couples are using these strategies to delay his orgasm:

Condoms

Using a condom is a simple solution that may make sex last longer because it reduces the sensation for him.

Use a Delay Spray

There are topical sprays you can apply to his penis just 10 minutes before you get it on which can help your lovin’ last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. As if that isn’t good enough, there’s no condom required.

Squeeze Method

Just before ejaculation, gently squeeze the shaft of the penis between the thumb and forefinger at the point where the head (glans) joins the shaft. Maintain the squeeze for several seconds, until the urge to ejaculate passes.

Pelvic floor exercises

Tighten your pelvic floor muscles, hold the contraction for three seconds, and then relax for three seconds. Try it a few times in a row. When your muscles get stronger, try doing Kegel exercises while sitting, standing or walking.

Start and stop

The most natural way to prevent an early end to sex is to start, stop and start again. If you’re able to find what’s referred to as a mid-level of excitement, you can get back to business for a bit longer without getting too overly excited. However, some men do not prefer this method, simply because it takes the fun out of sex. Therefore, they default to other methods.

Viagra
