Pubococcygeal (PC) muscles support your rectum and bladder to control urine flow. In other words, if you work it right, it will help to control ejaculation when you’re engaged in sexual activity.

  1. To work it out, lift your testicles without the aid of your hands. Imagine it lifting to your guts or contracting it like your shortening your penis. 
  1. Once you know how to contract and expand your PC muscles, hold and tighten it for 10 seconds then release. Repeat the exercise for ten rounds. 

This exercise will help you to control and delay your ejaculation to stay longer in bed. Make sure to do it slowly and consistently so as not to strain your penis.

Delay Orgasm

Commonly known as edging, it is a technique that allows you to masturbate and bring yourself almost to the point of orgasm, then stopping it until you can control your excitement.

Using this technique will require you to practice it before having sex with your partner. It will allow you to control your orgasm, lasting you longer in bed.

Stop-and-Squeeze Technique

If you feel you’re almost ejaculating, squeeze below the head of your penis. Hold it tight with your forefinger and thumb to focus the pressure along the underside of your penis. 

Using this technique will help you last longer in sex by pushing the blood flow from your penis to decrease the chances of ejaculating. 

Limit Thrusting

Thrusting is one way to enjoy the intercourse, but doing it fast can be very stimulating to your penis. Instead, you can massage her clitoris using your penis. You can also explore her G-spot and press your penis against it to stimulate her orgasm. 

In this way, you can avoid ejaculating prematurely without sacrificing enjoyment and pleasure.

Prioritise Your Woman

Women reach orgasm longer than men do so make sure to let her enjoy the sensation and pleasure before you do. 

Stimulating her clitoris and G-spot will help her reach her orgasm while keeping your own at bay. Be experimental and play with your partner according to what she likes. It may relieve you from ejaculating prematurely to last longer in bed.

Masturbate Before Sex

Masturbating beforehand is a proven technique to fight premature ejaculation. Ejaculating quickly means that you haven’t ejaculated for a while. Hence, you need to release it.

If you haven’t ejaculated for a while, it will be hard for you to control it even after a little stimulation, thrust or lick.


There are more ways to last longer in bed, including using condoms, pills and even tech support. However, if you don’t prefer these methods, you can do the practices mentioned above. 

Premature ejaculation or release will prevent you from engaging in sex longer because it can run out the energy from your body. Besides, practising these techniques will benefit not only you but also your partner.

The next time you’re with your partner in bed, it will surprise the both of you that you can do multiple orgasms together without releasing it quickly.
