Together with penis size, one of the big sexual health problems that men worry about is their sexual stamina. Basically how long should a man last during sexual intercourse?
The answer to the question “how long you should last during sexual intercourse” falls along the lines of “it depends!”
What I mean is that sexual stamina is a subjective term just like “long”, “far” or “tall”. For example, driving for 3 hours to an amusement park with your friends might not look very “far” but driving for 1 hour to work every day seems like you are travelling to the end of the world.
Another way to explain sexual stamina is height – if you as a man that is 5 feet 2 inches in height if a person that is 5 feet 9 inches is “tall” and he would tell you yes. Now ask the same question to a man that is 6 feet 3 inches and he is likely to say no.
So, just like height and how far a place, sexual stamina can be a relative – it could be based on the situation and the individuals involved. The truth is there is no particular amount of time that sexual intercourse is supposed to lasts.
It can be as little as 3 minutes and as long as 60 minutes – neither amount of time is worse or better. In reality what is important is giving your woman powerful orgasms. More time does not always increase the quality of sexual satisfaction that you can give your woman.
If you know what you are doing it is easy to give your woman amazing orgasms in a short amount of time, and if you are completely novice you can give your woman bad sex even if your erection lasts for 60 minutes.
It looks like I am just beating around the bush, so let me be direct – sexual stamina is only a problem if you and or your woman are unhappy with how long your erection lasts during sexual intercourse.
Sometimes the problem is not really about your sexual stamina because in so many cases your sex techniques is even to blame and you might be thinking that you need more time to pound your woman’s vagina – for example there are sex positions that can give your woman orgasms faster (in less than 8 minutes).
So let’s assume that your foreplay and sex technique is on point but your woman just wants sex to be longer than 8 minutes… then you need to tackle the problem and gradually increase your erection time to as long as she wants it to be.
However, you should also be aware that the appropriate amount of time you would spend for sexual intercourse changes based on the scenario. For example, on a week day when you know you and your woman are going to work the next morning, both of you would not be interested in having marathon sex the night before.
But if you and your woman are on leave and don’t have to worry about waking up early, she is likely to want sex to last a lot longer because she wants to enjoy herself to the fullest – as you can see it depends on the situation!
Sexual stamina is not really about number of minutes, it is more about you ability to last as long as your woman wants you to last in any particular sex session.
