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.

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.

It might also help 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 Thomas J. Walsh, M.D., a urologist at the University of Washington, 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.
