Can You Decrease Male Sexual Stamina?

I a 19-year-old man and I take a long time to reach orgasm (usually an hour or more) during sex. While I don't think I have a ‘problem,' I feel that my excessive stamina can be hard on my girlfriend. Is there something I can do to decrease my sexual stamina?


Well I must say that this is the opposite of the problem many young men have and that is to ejaculate too soon.

If you maturbate is the time frame still the same? Do you feel that this is more of a physical issue or a psychological one? Are there any instances where you climax sooner than an hour and if so...what are the cirumstances? Are you taking any medications which could hinder ejaculation?

Michael A. Perelman, a sex and marital therapist, has his patients who have the same issue you do agree to a masturbation moratorium. This helps men build up their sexual desire and allows them to reach orgasm more quickly. Not knowing what your circumstances are...I have no idea if this would help or not.

I know you may not wish to do this but this might be a topic to discuss with your doctor just to make sure that you don't have any physical problems contributing here.
