  • I actually live in that plateau. I stay on it bringing my girl with me. I will pleasure here until she almost comes then I'll bring it back down and start again. After a few hours of this it becomes like refined metal, one could even say it's like crack is to cocaine. This is orgasm crack cooked down to the purest for and when she cums your going to fucking know it. Actually the whole neighborhood will know it. I do the same for myself until when I cum.. how'd my girl put it. Oh yes she said she felt it ricochet off her uterine walls. I call it a bank shot. Call it what you want but you can call me in the bliss of sexual Nirvana... Whew, I need a cigarrette

    • Wow you're so full of shit.

    • Don't hate... maturbate

    • I'm saying your making that up. And I don't hate, you're just lying.

  • This can vary a lot depending on how long it has been since I last had sex, the sexual activity we are doing. I can last longer in the plateau phase when we are doing oral sex maybe 10 minutes. When we are having full intercourse it will be a couple of minutes

  • I experience Sex I don't time it. In general people don't time their Sexual Encounters especially they don't time the phases of Sex Research Specialists do studies and pay people to engage in Sex with monitors timing everything for a specific study they are doing.

  • I try to spend the absolute most time in the plateau period. Having that time of pleasure between the two can make for a great relationship and not only that it can make for a great experience that can last a lifetime or even go on for days.

  • The goal is to stay in that zone and see how many times I can get her off, before I do.

  • I like to fuck and keep fucking. My last relationship we would take all night, cum multiple times, both give head, it was awesome.

  • Who's timing this?

    • that's a good point that I didn't even think about xD I guess just estimate

    • That was my point. If anyone is timing it they are mot enjoying the moment.

  • Some people who have or once had any form of depression or if severe enough anxiety suffer from something called D. E. (Delayed Ejaculation). This makes the person last for far longer than they should. Even if they are hard/wet they will go for literal hours and have nothing.

  • Around 1 minute 24 seconds.

  • 2 mins or less, by the time i reach that point i gotta carefully edge myself or I'll go over the edge.
