A good stamina isn’t just restricted to running a marathon or swimming a few laps in the pool. Stamina also means lasting longer in bed, which can give you and your partner both pleasure. Many men are on the lookout for ways to improve their sexual performance. As per a database from the National Institutes of Health, over 30 percent men report struggling with sexual dysfunction due to inactivity and obesity. However, the idea of enjoying a healthy sex life is to not let performance anxiety get on your nerves and make you anxious. These can also some of the reasons behind low sexual stamina. If your partner is struggling with this, here are some natural ways to improve sexual stamina.

Health Shots got in touch with Dr Santosh Pandey, Naturopath and Acupuncturist, Rejua Energy Centre, Mumbai, to understand how to increase sex stamina.

How to increase sex stamina?

The expert says, “Sexual desires naturally fluctuate over the years. Major life changes, such as pregnancy, menopause or illness can affect sex drive in a relationship. A wide range of illnesses, physical changes and medications can cause a low sex drive like hormonal changes, lifestyle disorders, fatigue, some medications and psychological disturbances.”

There are some effective ways to boost sexual stamina as follows:

1. Foreplay is important

Most people believe that penetration is the most important part that defines the effectiveness of sex. However, men who struggle with erectile dysfunction may feel relieved to learn that an erection isn’t needed. In fact, you can use the issue of erectile dysfunction to your advantage to try and employ new strategies that can work for your partner in a better way.

Foreplay includes touching, kissing, and oral sex. Prolonging the act of foreplay can enhance the sexual experience for women because very few women reach the stage of orgasm from just intercourse alone.

2. Give the start-stop technique a try

Men who wish to last longer in bed can try the start-stop technique.
To execute this technique, cease sexual activity every time you feel ejaculation is close. Take some deep breaths, and start slowly again, then stop again to postpone ejaculation for as long as you desire.

This technique can help your body adapt the way to hold off ejaculation and help men feel more comfortable with not ejaculating, even during intense and passionate sexual activity.

3. Try new things together

Sexual pleasures feel more driven in an environment of excitement and passion.
After being with one partner for so long, the touch can feel familiar, and sexual activity becomes a routine thing, lacking passion. You may try a new sexual activity, or position, and do it in a different location to make it exciting. Also, you can talk about your sexual fantasies with your partner to add more spice to your sex life.

Additionally, you can try doing different things outside the bedroom, such as preparing food together, pursuing hobbies like kayaking or hiking, taking a tour of the museum, or trying a new sport. All these can help you feel more in sync with your partner and can help spark excitement in bed. Experimenting with new sexual experiences or fantasies with your partner can reignite passion,” says the expert.

4. Be mindful of your diet

“Green leafy vegetables, nuts and dates, omega-rich foods, fish and dairy products are good foods that can positively impact sexual performance. Some aphrodisiac foods like oysters, dark chocolate, and watermelon are considered aphrodisiacs and may help boost libido,” suggests the expert.

5. Manage stress

High stress levels can harm the libido and can make erection hard. Also, an anxious person can feel distracted from sexual intimacy. Also, performance anxiety can make sex less exciting and engaging. Indulging in stress-reduction techniques like meditation or yoga can come to your rescue.

6. Sleep well

If you haven’t slept well for consecutive nights, chances are poor sleep can negatively affect your sex drive. Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep per night.

Follow these tips and watch your sex stamina hit the roof!
