What man wouldn’t want to be able to last longer in bed? The good news is that if you’re not lasting as long as you want, there are tools and techniques that can help. For many, mindfulness meditation can be a game-changer.

Not only that, traditional techniques like the stop-start method and the squeeze technique, which are aligned with mindfulness meditation principles, can offer an even more practical approach to understanding and managing arousal and lasting longer.

In this article, we’ll explore how mindfulness meditation and similar sex therapy techniques, can help you learn to last longer in bed.

How can mindfulness meditation help you last longer?

One of the primary reasons some men struggle to last longer in bed is a lack of awareness of the physical sensations leading to orgasm. Mindfulness meditation can teach you how to become more aware of these sensations, and by doing so, give you more control during sex.

When you engage in mindfulness meditation, you’re essentially training your mind to stay present and focused on the current moment. In the context of sex, this means becoming acutely aware of the sensations in your body as you approach climax.

By honing this awareness, you can recognize the buildup to orgasm earlier, giving you the ability to modulate and control your response.

For example, if you notice your breath becoming shallow and fast as you get closer to orgasm, calm yourself down by taking deep breaths from the belly. If your eyesight becomes less focused, force yourself to bring the focus back.

It’s like fine-tuning your body’s awareness system, allowing you to navigate the intricate pathways leading to climax with more precision.

Meditation can help with performance anxiety

Performance anxiety is another common issue that makes men lose control. The pressure to perform can create a self-fulfilling prophecy, making the fear of not lasting long a reality.

Mindfulness meditation can provide a valuable tool here. Through regular practice, you can develop a heightened sense of self-awareness and self-acceptance. This, in turn, reduces the impact of performance anxiety.

By staying present in the moment and accepting the experience without judgment, you can naturally become more likely to break the cycle of anxious thoughts that can contribute to a loss of control during sex.

Mindfulness helps in shifting the focus from future concerns to the immediate experience, fostering a more relaxed and confident state of mind during intimate moments.

Practicing mindful masturbation and sex to last longer

Engaging in mindful masturbation and sex is a great strategy for learning how to last longer in bed.

The stop-start method and the squeeze technique are traditional approaches developed by Western sex therapists specifically to teach men how to last longer in bed.

While these techniques weren’t initially rooted in mindfulness, they share common ground with mindfulness principles and are specifically tailored to improve sexual performance and satisfaction.    

The stop-start method involves pausing sexual activity just before reaching the point of no return, allowing arousal to subside before resuming. The squeeze technique involves gently squeezing the base of the penis when nearing climax to delay orgasm.

Using both of these techniques, you practice reaching up to the point of no return, and then stop the stimulation just before you reach an orgasm. You repeat this several times, all while paying close attention to the physical sensations and emotions you experience during sex.

Practicing these exercises helps you develop a better understanding of your arousal patterns and responses. It allows for a more deliberate and conscious approach to sex, enabling you to recognize and manage the build-up to climax effectively.

With practice, you can gradually enhance your stamina and naturally extend your ability to last longer in bed.

Follow a structured training program for results

While the stop-start method and the squeeze technique may seem straightforward, achieving results requires following a structured training plan with increasing levels of difficulty.

That’s why we developed the Between Us Clinic’s Premature Ejaculation Program, an online course guiding you step-by-step on practicing these exercises to extend your endurance in bed.

By following a structured plan, you’ll maximize your chances of achieving the desired results and enjoy a more satisfying sex life.
