Question

I perplexed that doing something as simple as stopping stimulation during sex could help me last longer. It sounds trivial and pretty simple to try. There are also a ton of resources that seem to talk about it.

Am I over estimating the ease and benefits of edging?

Will edging actually help me reduce premature ejaculation, allowing me to last last longer in bed and is it as easy as it sounds?

Edging, which is also sometimes referred to as the stop-start technique, is a climax-control technique that involves stopping sexual activity when you feel like you are going to ejaculate.

With edging, you actually stop stimulation and activity completely until you feel less aroused.

You may even need to wait until you have slightly lost your erection before you resume sexual activity.

Does it work?

The edging technique is commonly used to prolong sexual activity, but it can also be an effective way to control premature ejaculation.

The key with edging is to learn exactly when you need to stop before you ejaculate.

For most men, there is a literal "point of no return," or point when ejaculation is going to happen even if you immediately pull out or stop stimulation.

How to Practice Edging

To be successful with edging, you do have to determine where the point of no return is for yourself, which can take a bit of trial and error.

For many men, they notice physical sensations when they get close, such as:

  • Tightening pelvic floor muscles
  • Tightening of the testicles
  • Pressure building in the penis

Once you know exactly what sensations you feel at that point before you ejaculate, you can stop immediately before that point, refrain from stimulation as long as it takes, and then get back to sex.

You can repeat this process of starting and stopping as many times as you want before climax, and some men report stronger orgasms by doing so.

Takeaways

After enough practice with edging, you may be able to prolong your sexual encounters for an extended period of time.

As a secondary advantage, edging teaches you a bit about your body, which can give you more control over ejaculation even without stopping and starting.

You may see improved results when you use it in combination with a male genital desensitizer, like Promescent.
