Many men have boosted that it takes a long time for them to reach orgasm and they can always last as long in bed as they want but it turns out it is just talk which boys fabricate to make other boys jealous because the common boy lasts for a lesser amount of time than they think.
Things are actually not as ever-lasting as they seem, particularly in bed.
The average time it takes for a man to orgasm is just a meagre two to three minutes. And when it comes to masturbation, men again take just two minutes while women take four minutes to orgasm.
It’s all good and peaceful when everyone is having a good time alone. But the complaint arises when it comes to foreplay and sex, because men and women are wired differently and finishing together is tricky.
A woman generally takes about ten to twenty minutes to reach climax with vaginal sex while a man again takes a quick two to three minutes right after entering the vagina. So now you know what causes all those quarrels in the bedroom.
What most men curse about their body is the refractory period, which is the time he needs to rest before reaching another climax, and this can take anywhere from one minute to one hour.
An orgasm makes the pelvic and lower body muscles tense as the blood pressure and heart rate shoots well above 100 beats per minute. The muscles at the base of the penis contract and relax about 8 to 12 times at the rate of once per second. After that comes the refractory period.
Why the refractory period is troublesome is because it makes the penis ultra-sensitive and difficult to achieve another orgasm in a short period of time.
Studies have shown that the hormone oxytocin is the culprit responsible for the refractory period in men. So when they climax, there is a surge of oxytocin in the body and the amount of oxytocin released effects the length of the refractory period. Another chemical responsible for the refractory period is prolactin, which suppresses dopamine.
On the other hand, there is a big difference between how many times a woman climaxes and how many times their partner thinks they did. An Indiana State University study found out that men reach orgasm about 85% of the times, irrespective of their sexual orientation. Women, on the other hand, experience orgasm about 62% of the times.
It’s no secret that men finish first and women last, but remember the rule: “ladies first”, so it is only real men who finish together or keep on going after they have climaxed.
If you are a man, here’s how you can last longer in bed:
