Sexual stamina is important to men who want to fully please their lovers 2. Unfortunately, many men suffer from a lack of stamina due to premature ejaculation or other problems 2. But men can increase their sexual endurance with some simple steps that take only a little time for marked results.

Is This an Emergency?

If you are experiencing serious medical symptoms, seek emergency treatment immediately.

Squeeze Technique

One way to increase male sexual stamina--especially if it's reduced by premature ejaculation--is called the “squeeze” technique 2. A man delays his orgasm by withdrawing his penis and then squeezing the head firmly until the urge to ejaculate has passed. This technique can be performed multiple times during intercourse.


A man can improve his sexual enduring power by practice. Masturbation can be an important tool in “training” a man in how to last longer in bed. A man naturally increases his sexual stamina by learning to increase time before ejaculation in masturbatory sessions 2.


Distracting one's self during intercourse is a classic way of delaying orgasm. A man who senses he is going to ejaculate too quickly to satisfy his partner can train himself to think of something non-sexual to delay climax. However, the man may lose his erection.


Some men use desensitizing creams in order to last longer in bed. These creams are sold in drug stores, usually in the condom aisle. They work by numbing the head of the penis so that the man experiences less sensation and therefore can perform longer before he climaxes.

Sex Toys

Many erotic toys can help a man endure in bed. Among these are “rings” that encircle the penis and the blood in the shaft so that the wearer can keep his ejection and help prevent premature ejaculation. The ring is worn around the base of the penis, just behind the scrotum.

Stress Reduction

A man’s sexual stamina is frequently reduced when he's under much stress, so reducing the amount of worry in life can help him improve his endurance 2. Ways to reduce anxiety include meditation, reducing workload, counseling and getting more rest.


Men can increase sexual endurance by improving their overall physical health. This can be done by participation in aerobic and anaerobic exercises. Ideally, a man should exercise at least three times a week to gain a health benefit that will carry over to his love life in time.


Taking certain medications can influence a male’s sexual stamina 2. For instance, certain medications can reduce sex drive and hinder lovemaking; others can enliven your sex life. A man should check with his doctor regarding possible side effects of medications he is prescribed. He can also ask the physician for recommendations of medications that can help with sexual dysfunction, if needed.
