Experience Longer-Lasting, More Intense Orgasms

by | Dec 27, 2022

Have you ever wondered why people masturbate for hours before deciding to shoot their load? It’s not all about having fun for longer. In fact, there are many reasons why a person may decide to partake in ‘edging’ which is the act of masturbating for long periods of time without ejaculating. 

If you’re curious to know why someone would do this, or if the practice of edging leaves you scratching your head wondering, “why?” Keep reading because that’s what this article is about.

Experience Longer-Lasting, More Intense Orgasms

First and foremost, people decide to edge themselves to have more fun for longer. The practice isn’t at all weird. Men can increase the intensity of their orgasm. By waiting longer to blow a load, it will make your orgasm more intense and result in more ejaculate. If you’ve ever seen an episode of Tim Tales and wondered how they make so much cum, think about the sex scenes. They last on average 30 minutes and the guys in the films swap their positions frequently. By doing so, when the money shot happens, it results in enormous loads of cum being blasted all over a guy’s face or chest. 

The practice is so common that there’s even a name for this type of play in the BDSM community. It’s called edge play and the sensation isn’t all physical. In Edge play, the master intensely pleasures his sub to the brink of a psychological break. By stopping the sub from shooting his load, it increases the intensity of the orgasm for the sub physically and mentally. If you’re unsure of how that works, head over to Pornhub and type in any combination of the following search terms “tied up edged,” “tied up milked” and you will see how this works and the intense pleasure the person being edged experiences. 

If you happen to be intact, which in this case means uncut, being edged can be a body shivering experience. If you are intact, the glands on the head of your penis are uncalloused. So, if you’re being ‘edged’ or ‘milked’ the person edging you can retract your foreskin and enhance your experience by briskly rubbing your penis head with a lubed hand. It will lead to a body shaking experience that will last for hours. And some men report that being intact increased their sexual pleasure. What do you think? Let us know in the comments. 

Other times partake in edging for reasons that are more practical. About 33% of men experience premature ejaculation. We’ve all been the guy, or with the guy, that shot his load after only a few minutes of being inside. If you’re a top edging can help you get in the habit of lasting longer and recognize when you’re close to ejaculating. Edging will give you more time to experience better sex that can last for hours. And your bottom will thank you because they know that by fasting for 24 hours and douching for an hour will result in better sex that won’t make them regret their preparation time. 

It may sound weird to play with your dick for hours on end without someone there to make it worth your while. But it shouldn’t be. Edging can help to reduce the stigma associated with solo play that some people experience. And you’ll learn things about your privates that you never knew previously. It will allow you to feel your dick get rock solid and you’ll regain control of your instinct to shoot. After all, orgasms are just as much mental as they are physical. 

Some men also like to partake in a practice known as ‘jelqing’ when edging. Jelqing the practice of trying to enhance the size of the penis and edging offers you the perfect chance to partake in the practice. With Jelqing you need to repeatedly stroke you’re the shaft of your dick in an upwards motion. You should place your thumb and forefinger at the base of your shaft tightly. Not so much it hurts, but you should feel the blood in your penis move to the head. By doing this repeatedly with slight pressure, you force more blood into the small veins in the head of your dick. Some people believe that doing this repeatedly for about 20 minutes can increase the length of the penis. Now, the evidence on whether this is safe or not is inconclusive. Some people say yes, and others say no. So, if you’re going to practice this while edging just remember to stop immediately if you feel any pain. We can’t condone the practice, that’s your decision to make. But, since it needs to be done for at least 20 minutes, edging is the perfect time to partake in the practice. And make sure to learn about the risks of Jelqing before trying it. 

We bet by now you’re thinking, “is edging only something men do?” And the answer is, NOT AT ALL. Women can also prematurely ejaculate. If you’re a lesbian who struggles to keep from reaching your pique too soon, start edging yourself. It will help you understand when you’re close to an orgasm and give you a cure to switch your role in the bed to increase the duration of a sexy play session.
