I have a few questions about how long people last, I want to see the average and some other questions. I usually last about 10 minutes if I'm completely sober, and it doesn't feel like that's enough. I heard that as you have sex more, you'll begin to last longer...I became sexually active a little late (i lost my virginity at 18 1/2) and I'm 20 years old now. Anyways, I'm positive this topic has been brought up before, but I can't seem to find it. Does anyone have any tips for lasting longer besides the usual "Think about your mom or something else nasty" Is 10-15 minutes absolutely terrible and something I should be ashamed of? What else do you guys do to keep this from happening. If I have the chance, I jack off early in the night if I know I'm going to have sex that night. And also, I'm sure it is, but just getting reassurance...when you're about to have sex with a girl for the first time between you and her, it usually goes a little bit quicker because it's "newer" and a bit "special" because it's the first time for you two, right?
