How Small Gestures and Healthy Humor Can Revive a Relationship
“Shutdown” is a relationship issue some couples face that is rooted in the numbing effect of the repetitive nature of modern life. Years of daily routines and stressful demands tend to have paralyzing consequences. This can cause you and/or your partner to unwittingly allow the seeds of discontent to germinate, giving way to boredom, mistrust and disintegration. The constraints of career and familial obligations sometimes leave room for little else, and as a result, intimacy and communication begin to crumble. These dynamics can be navigated and successfully reversed by engaging in strategies that replace tedium with spice, boredom with excitement and disconnection with passion.

How to Last Longer in Bed – The Male Orgasm and Premature Ejaculation
A biological imperative for the propagation of the species, human males have evolved to achieve orgasm with relative ease — prompting some men to want to learn how to last longer in bed. According to a recent report posted by Psychology Today, an average of 30% of males age 18 to 85 experience what is referred to as premature ejaculation. This means that they become so aroused during a sexual encounter that they climax quite quickly, sometimes even before penetration. This can present an awkward situation if their partner is still over at the starting line with a revving engine and no passenger — so to speak.
Intimacy issues such as this, although common, tend to be omitted from everyday conversation due to the long lasting effects of shame and guilt placed upon sex by the Victorian Age. If premature ejaculation is a scenario that you relate to, you can see it as an opportunity to learn about yourself and to share these nuances with your partner rather than as a reason to withdraw in denial. PubMed.com reports that 85.1% of men experience climax during sexual activity, meaning that out of the nearly nine out of ten guys that reach cimax, three do so in a matter of time that both partners agree is too soon.

Individual Preference Should Not Limit Sexual Fulfillment
Women are empowered to revel in the ecstasy of orgasm, and to de-mystify the question of how to climax you have to accept that penetration is just one of many ways to fulfillment. It is a fact that many women do not reach climax during sex. According to the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the female orgasm is “less predictable, more varied” than that of men and occurs with less frequency. This recent study reveals that just 62.9% of women report achieving orgasm through “standard” sexual activity. You can read that as “vanilla” or “missionary style” or “just plain boring.”
Thankfully, western society’s long-standing embargo on the open discussion of human sexuality continues to lift, offering an abundance of avenues for women to choose when immersing themselves in pleasure. The door to solving a challenge with climaxing is opened by gaining a deeper understanding of your sexual biology. Women with intimacy issues can grow through self-examination, experimental masturbation and honest communication with their partners.
