last longer in bed

Everyone has heard of mindfulness, and we generally see it as a tool for coping with everyday stressors, such as work, interpersonal dynamics and other pressures. But few people apply it to their sex lives.

longer lasting sex

Having a low sex drive can be a major source of depression and anxiety for many men. But what causes it and what can you do about it?
Some men are genetically predisposed to low sex drive. For others, life events can temporarily dampen ardor, and this is a normal part of life’s ups and downs that shouldn’t cause too much concern.

Erectile Dysfunction in Young Men

A lot of men worry about their ‘romantic’ performance. The wonder how to last longer in bed, focusing on technique, and looking for practical glossaries of steps.

Effects of ADHD on Sexuality Part 1

ADHD is a real thing, so if you suspect it, get tested, preferably by three or four independent sources. It increases your chances of objectivity. So once you’re officially diagnosed with the condition and have started a treatment programme, (how) does it affect your sex life?

Sex Helps Initiate Relationships With Potential Partners

Sex Helps Initiate Relationships With Potential Partners

We all agree our biological reproduction reflex at least partially drives the sex urge. It’s why women are generally (and often unconsciously) more open to casual sex while they’re ovulating. And the men around can – just as unconsciously – sense it. Many women will point out – if they stop to think about it – that they get hit on more frequently during ‘high season’.

Scientists have long wondered whether the ability to last longer in bed deepens emotional bonds, or whether the two develop independently. A …

What Makes You Feel Best About Sex?



Ben Ze’-ev writes about the difference between romantic intensity and romantic profundity. The former focuses on momentary passion. The latter is the warm, intimate, long-term affection you have for your partner – a different love than what you feel for friends and family.

The better you feel about your partner, the longer and healthier your relationship will be. And yes, sex, plays a role in this.

We generally assume orgasms …

How sex makes us smarter
