How can men improve their sexual performance? Certain lifestyle changes can help, such as minimizing stress, worry, and anxiety, as they are key factors in achieving an erection. If a man is worried about how he will present himself sexually, he may be more passive during non-sexual intercourse. Strategies for managing stress and anxiety include getting more sleep, meditation, or doing your favorite activities more often.
To achieve the best results in bed, men should focus more on the foreplay than on the real part. This includes more touching, kissing as well as oral sex. Thus, they can bring their partner to orgasm even before the act. A 2017 study found that very few women, about 18%, experience orgasms from intercourse alone. The same study also found that 36.6% of women needed clitoral stimulation to achieve orgasm during intercourse.
The method by which men can last longer is called the so-called start-stop. This technique can be used to stop the sexual activity before ejaculation. In this way, a man trains his body to restrain ejaculation in order to have longer sexual intercourse.
Quitting smoking can also help improve sexual performance. Cigarette use can increase blood pressure and cause heart problems, which can subsequently affect erections. It is also found in a 2022 analysis of 13 studies that tobacco cessation can improve sexual function and reduce erectile dysfunction.
Most sports can also have a positive effect. Regular exercise may also reduce risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Men can also benefit from exercising the muscles involved in ejaculation.
Last but not least is communication between partners. If sex-related issues have created tension, it’s best to clarify as this can help a man better express himself sexually.
