“Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power”
A lot of people would agree that there is an unquestionable connection that comes from intimacy or emotions with a spouse, partner… or even a recent acquaintance. On the other hand, if the physical expression of emotion is in the form of sex, then a lack of sexual stamina will inhibit a person’s ability to properly communicate their feelings.
For some people, the thought that they are not able to provide a lasting and intensely fulfilling sexual experience for their partner is something that can lead to an emotional disconnect. This further can cause stress and anxiety.
Why is it important to increase your stamina?
“If you change the way you look at Things, the Things you look at Change”.
Both partners must have the same thought when it comes to a relationship. Sex is an integral part of a thriving relationship. It creates a bond and also keeps the two people involved connected. To have a rocking sex life, we need to work on it. To need to increase stamina arises due to:
- Weakening of Muscles: With time and age muscles can weaken and if we neglect them then they can cause atrophy. This includes sex-specific muscles also.
- Confidence: Sexual competence can give us the desired sexual confidence which is required for a fulfilling relationship.
- Bonding: A healthy sex life helps maintain a healthy bond between the partners.
- Female satisfaction: Increased flexibility and strengthening the pelvic floor can relieve pain and increase the duration of orgasm.
- Research show a strong link between exercise and improved sexual vitality
Exercises to boost Sexual Stamina
Love is the answer, but while you are waiting for the answer, sex raises some pretty good questions!
Sex is perfectly natural. It is something that’s pleasurable, enjoyable and also enriches a relationship. So why don’t we learn as much as we can about it and become comfortable with ourselves? Let’s have a look at the exercises which can help us in boosting our sexual stamina:
1. Kegel Exercise
Kegel exercises help in strengthening the pelvic floor muscle, also known as the PC. As pelvic floor muscles gain strength, it will help in achieving more control. A strong pelvic floor increases erectile strength, ejaculatory control, and the strength of the orgasms. To locate the pelvic muscles one should try to stop and start the flow of urine when using the bathroom.
How to do: To do this exercise one should sit or lie down comfortably, squeeze the PC muscle for 5 to 10 seconds, relax for 5 seconds and repeat 10 times. It should be performed on an empty bladder.
2. Abs and Lower back
Abdominal and lower back muscles get used in almost every sexual position. Hence practising inverted curls, squats, deadlifts, planks, and push-ups can help in strengthening the ab and lower back.
3. Connect with your breath
A person tends to ejaculate prematurely when they are anxious and tense. Hence, an easy way to have a control on the ejaculation is to focus on the relaxing and breathing technique. One should breathe deeply and allow the muscles to relax.
4. Forearm Strengthening
Our sexual stamina requires a certain amount of arm strength. So, it is important to do arm strengthening by lifting weights at home or at the gym.
5. Cardiovascular Exercises
Cardio exercises are also important to boost your stamina. For cardio, one should aim to sweat minimum of 3-4 times per week. This can be achieved by running, speed-walking, rock climbing.
6. Jaw Muscles
We can strengthen our jaw and tongue muscles by doing tongue push-ups.
How to do: This exercise is done by pushing the underside of the tip of the tongue into the front of the hard palate (the front of the roof of the mouth, right behind the front teeth). To take this exercise to the next level, one can start putting hard-shelled chocolate candies between their tongue and the hard palate and practice crushing them with the force of their tongue.
7. PC Muscle
Masturbating can help gain control over the orgasms and can teach how to delay the onset of an orgasm.
How to do:
Males: One should masturbate to arousal and then drape a dry hand towel over the erection. With the towel in place, do penis push-ups by flexing the PC muscle and then lifting the towel.
Females: One should masturbate until they are close to having an orgasm and then take a break until you no longer feel close to climax.
Doing this exercise for five minutes a day, few times per week will make a noticeable difference in the erectile strength and ejaculatory control.
Testosterone, the hormone that is mainly responsible for sex drive is produced while sleeping. If a person consistently has poor sleep, then the testosterone levels will drop rapidly. Testosterone production can increase with an improved sleep. Extra testosterone will provide a boost in the sexual stamina.
“One of the greatest moments in life is realising that two weeks ago, your body couldn’t do what you just did”- And this realisation will definitely help you in pushing yourself further.
