Ways To Make Sex Last Longer

How To Last Longer In Bed
There are some things in life that, inevitably, don’t last a long time. But sex… should not be one of those things. Sure, there’s a time and place for a quickie, but for the most part, sex should be an experience that is enjoyed for as long as you and your partner want, preferably with no time limit.

It’s not exactly news that it takes men less time than women to reach orgasm. And once it happens, sex is often over. After ejaculation, men go through a refractory period where they are unable to achieve another erection for a certain length of time (women have little to no refractory period). It’s normal and it varies, but it does have a way of interrupting intercourse. The only way to defer it is to delay orgasm, which is why we’ve put together a list of tips for lasting longer in bed.

That's why sex experts chimed in with more accurate insight about what guys really want you to know when the two of you climb into bed. Here are the top sex tips for women.

But men rarely notice your self-perceived flaws — they only become aware of them if you're preoccupied with them or go out of your way to cover up. "It's true, men are very visual," says relationship expertBernardo Mendez. &…

10 Things You Didn't Know About Donald Trump

10 Things You Didn't know About Donald Trump

Whether you love him or despise him, you just can’t ignore Donald Trump. “The Donald” has been a controversial public figure long before his recent bid for the presidency. The real estate mogul isn’t after the presidential perks or salary, in fact it’s costing him dough to chase the oval office, so why is he doing it? Some say he’s running for a higher purpose, to restore our country to glory. Others claim he is a megalomaniac with nothing currently better to do than rile up America.
To fully understand Trump, it’s important to dig deeper than the sound bites and information offered by talking heads on TV.
