I think it is safe to say that all of us have seen or watched some pornographic materials in our life. If that is the case, you may have a perception of the ‘perfect sex’ where a man should last for more than 30 minutes if they are to satisfy their partners sexually.
Well, to tell you the truth, that is not the case. If anything, 30 minutes is way too much. According to a study published by the Journal of Sexual Medicine, men and women have reported that the average sexy time should last for 5-15 minutes. In another study, women want sex to last no more than 25 minutes and anything more than that is considered ludicrous and unnecessary.
Having said all of that, the average time for a man during penetrative sex should be 5 minutes. If you are unable to last that long, then you’re probably suffering from a sexual dysfunction of sorts.
Taking libido boosters for men can surely have an impact, but for people who prefer doing it naturally, here are some of the techniques that can help improve your sexual stamina:
Practice Some Relaxation Techniques
Premature ejaculation can be caused by two things: Stress and Lifestyle. Therefore, one way to combat that would be to engage in some relaxation techniques.
Yoga or meditation are two things that you certainly want to add to your daily routine as both of these activities can do wonders in reducing stress and anxiety.
Follow a Good Diet Plan
Now, I am not the kind of person that would advise a single diet mainly because all of us thrive using different techniques, but if I were to recommend one, I highly suggest that you look into the Mediterranean Diet.
In one study, people who follow this particular diet plan are generally the ones that last longer in bed compared to others who follow no structured diet plan.
The Mediterranean Diet is a meal plan that tells you to eat foods that are rich in healthy fats like avocados and olive oil, whole grains, etc.
Get Your Fill of Honey
An erection occurs when there is a surge of blood towards the penis. That is why you want to improve blood circulation in your body if you want to hold an erection for a much longer period of time.
Having said that, taking your daily fill of honey can help. Honey is not only a great natural sweetener but it also helps reduce blood cholesterol levels which will, in turn, improve blood flow.
Fish is Needed
Protein is needed by our bodies but protein sources are not created equally. There are those that contain high amounts of unhealthy fat and there are those that are just the right ones for you.
Fatty fish may not be something that you want to hear, but it is actually quite a really good food to incorporate into your diet.
Salmon, tuna, and halibut are all examples of fatty fish and are great sources of Omega-3- an essential fatty acid that is known to improve overall heart health.
