While quickies are great and all, sometimes you want something that lasts a little longer. But what’s longer? For starters, it’s important to get a healthy sense of expectation of the length of an average sex session. Research has shown that the average time it takes for men to ejaculate is two minutes, while it takes women 20 minutes to reach the end goal.
Further research shows that the average time spent getting frisky in the sheets is a mere 5 minutes… I’m no mathematician, but even I can see one party is probably missing out on the big O.
So next time the clothes come off, don’t go in there all tits blazing, grab a bottle of water and check out these 8 tips for extending your sex session’ staying power.
1. Drink Loads Of Water
“Yes Mum” I can hear you say, but water is going to get you through this. Staying hydrated is so important to lasting longer. You don’t want to burn out within 30 minutes because you dry up.
2. Get Creative
Sticking to just a few positions in bed is going to get boring. Make the most of the space around your home and really mix up the positions. You don’t need to plan a fuckit list of positions and places, but have a look online for some inspiration, you might just find your new holy grail manoeuvre.
3. Whip The Toys Out
You’re in this for the long haul, so some added toy fun is going to break your time up. Make sure you have a good selection of toys to space out throughout the weekend to use on your playmate, as well as yourself. To get back into the swing of things, if you’re feeling a bit drained of energy, or after a break, that is the perfect time to whip them out.
4. X-Rated Viewing
Instead of chilling on the sofa with a movie, turn on some porn, it will keep you both horny when you need a break. It might also give you some ideas for new moves or even a fantasy you want to try.
5. Lube It Up
Lube is going to be your best friend during this time. Let’s face it, when it’s too hot, the river can dry up if you know what I mean. It doesn’t mean that your partner isn’t feeling it anymore, but we women cannot control what happens down there, and sometimes a little extra help is needed.
6. Pick You Ups
Food, snacks, and nibbles. You don’t want to eat a huge meal, that will make you feel bloated and tired. Light bits and plenty of it is what you will need, to give you an energy boost. Incorporate the food into your lengthy sex session, with sexy food you can feed each other, like strawberries, chocolate, etc.
7. Keep It Clean
It’s going to get hot and sweaty so make sure you take a shower or bath when your feeling dirty-dirty and not sexy-dirty anymore. It doesn’t mean the action has to stop, continue in the tub or shower by washing each other down and getting hands on.
8. Take A Break
Let’s face it, no one is capable of shagging 24 hours none stop, you’re going to need a break. Give yourself a moment to take a breath and prepare for whatever round of sex you are starting next. Why not head out for a walk in the fresh air, you never know, you might find a secluded spot for a bit of al fresco action.
