7 Ways for Men to Get a More Powerful Orgasm
Any orgasm is better than none, but what if every single orgasm you had was extremely powerful, epic and earth-shattering?
The ability to achieve a strong orgasm isn’t entirely dependent on genetics, drugs or your partner’s bedroom skills. In fact, you can try numerous ways to train your mind and body to experience better orgasms.
1. Eat orgasm-friendly foods
Certain foods dilate your blood vessels and promote good blood flow, which helps you experience stronger orgasms. Cayenne pepper, cinnamon, garlic, fatty fish, walnuts and dark leafy greens are some of the many foods that may be able to help get the blood pumping. Foods such as eggs, chickpeas, lentils and shellfish increase testosterone, another factor in achieving stronger orgasms. Ask a nutritionist about other foods you can add to your diet to boost sexual health.
2. Increase your testosterone
High testosterone levels are key to achieving better orgasms. The best ways to increase testosterone naturally include exercising regularly, eating healthy foods, managing stress, getting plenty of quality sleep and spending lots of time in the sun (wear sunscreen!). Some of these behaviors may require you to overhaul your lifestyle, but it’ll be worth it in the long run.
3. Stimulate your perineum
Your perineum is the area of skin between the scrotum and anus. Also known as your taint, the perineum is packed with sensitive nerve endings that can magnify your orgasms when stimulated during sex or masturbation. During intercourse or oral sex, ask your partner to place their finger on your perineum and gently apply pressure. If the amount of pressure is just right, you’ll be completely blown away.
4. Lift your scrotum
Just before you orgasm, your testicles will rise closer to your body to help you achieve a powerful ejaculation. To intensify this effect, ask your partner to cup your scrotum and gently lift it toward your body right before you ejaculate.
5. Stimulate your prostate
This little gland does a lot for your body, including providing immense amounts of pleasure. The prostate can be stimulated externally, via the perineum, or internally, via anal sex or using a finger or a toy to probe.
If you and your partner are new to anal sex or probing, take time to learn and understand safety guidelines to avoid injury and infection. Your partner should wash their hands, trim their nails and apply a safe, all-natural lubricant before inserting a finger into your anus. The prostate feels like a small lump and is located about two inches inside the anus. Once your partner reaches your prostate, instruct them to apply gentle pressure and start stroking or thrusting, whichever feels best.
6. Master the art of edging
Edging involves pausing during sex or slowing down when you’re about 90 percent of the way to experiencing an orgasm, then resuming your pace until you build up to a more powerful climax. Some men are able to edge three or more times before having a mind-blowing orgasm.
Edging requires practice and may not be successfully executed until you’ve tried it several times. If it’s taking you a while to get the hang of it, make sure you communicate with your partner about what you’re trying to do. This can prevent them from experiencing anxiety in the event they’re wondering why you’re not climaxing as quickly as before.
7. Practice deep breathing
Try deep breathing during sex to experience a more intense and longer-lasting orgasm. One important tip: Instead of exhaling through your mouth as you typically would with deep breathing, focus on breathing just through your nose. This allows you to pull in more oxygen and get a natural high from nitric oxide—a gas that relaxes and widens your blood vessels to increase circulation and thus contributes to a more powerful orgasm.
Some of these approaches may seem like common sense and others may be new to you, but all will be fun to try—with or without a partner—and each will be worth the effort. After all, who doesn’t want to experience an even more powerful orgasm?
