How long should sex last? Five minutes is pretty standard for most men, but that can be frustrating for women, since they need around 20 minutes to orgasm with a partner. Fortunately, there are plenty of things you can do to >make sex last longer.

GUYS: Get Harder, Last Longer – Scientifically-Proven Natural Formula

One of the easiest ways to delay your orgasm is to change up your sex positions. Don’t stick to just one position from beginning to end, try alternating.

So what positions will help make sex last longer? We have a couple of suggestions about keeping the fun going a lot longer, so try one of these during your next encounter.

  1. 1. Cowgirl

    This classic position is where the you lie on your back and your partner is on top. The woman is in charge of the pace and penetration so she can keep things slow and steady and in sync with her.

    For you, there is much less thrusting involved and far less sensation, meaning the final climax can take much longer.

    2. Spooning

    When it comes to bedding your girl, most guys nail it fast and hard, just the way she likes it.

    The problem is, that isn’t the way she loves it. Learn the slow groove, and you may discover what women have known for years — slow sex is so much better.

    Wrap your arms around her and get as close as you can. Most of the action will be more like rocking and grinding than thrusting, but she can match your movements.

  3. 3. The CAT

    Just like the trusty missionary position, this one all hinges on how you move your body.

    Think less thrusting and more grinding to intensify the pleasure – and it’s great for hitting the female G-spot, commonly found on the anterior wall of the vagina.

  4. 4. Face to Face

    This comfortable sideways sex position doesn’t allow for much thrusting, but it’s very close and intimate.

    Begin by lying down on your bed facing your partner. Relax your body and pull her top leg over your hips to rest. Using a hand to guide your penis inside her, draw close and gently grind your bodies into one another in a circular motion.

  5. 5. The Lotus

    This can be a very romantic position. It’s perfect for lots of kissing and eye contact, which creates much more intimacy.

    In the Lotus Position, you sit on the bed cross-legged while your lover lowers herself onto your lap, wrapping her arms and legs around you.

    While there can be deep penetration, the movement itself stays at a calm and steady tempo which is ideal for delaying your climax.

    6. The Cross

    In the Cross Position you lie on your side facing your partner. She then lies on her back at 90 degrees to you, draping her legs over your hips.

    This position delays arousal because you’re not really able to move as easily as you can in other positions. Having limited motion means you won’t get too carried away and climax too quickly.

  7. 7. Lazy Dog

    This one is a twist on the famous doggy-style position, but laid down on a bed or flat surface, boosting penetration and intensifying stimulation.

    When you’re hitting it from behind, focus on the nerve endings in her entrance of her vagina instead of seeing how deep you can get. Or, try using a figure 8 motion instead of the old in and out.

To last longer in bed naturally, slow down movement and use a condom. Another trick which might help is to change your masturbation technique.

Delaying your orgasm, or edging while masturbating can be one of the most effective ways to train yourself to last longer during sex. According to the experts, it’s one of the most common techniques to avoid coming too soon.

Basically, you bring yourself right to the edge of orgasm and stop until you have your excitement under control.

Practicing this technique can help you teach your brain and body to better control your orgasm response and make sex last longer, says sex therapist Emily Morse. Just be sure to use a lot of lotion or lube while you practice edging to avoid chafing.
