Going slow can lead to more passionate, intense sex. Here’s why you should pace yourself.
You’ll get more pleasure Moving leisurely takes the pressure off. “You’re caught up in the moment, instead of worrying about having an orgasm,” says Petra Zebroff, a clinical sexologist in Vancouver. “The lack of stress can make it easier to reach that climax.”
You can be creative It’s easy to fall into a rut in the bedroom, especially if you’ve been together for a while, Petra says. Spending more time on sex lets you experiment and try new positions and techniques.
It’s super-intimate “Going slow encourages eye contact, lots of kissing, and an overall sensual appreciation of your partner,” says Emily Morse, a sexologist in the US.
You’ll finish strong When you’re relaxed, your skin actually becomes more sensitive to touch, Petra notes. That, plus the long build-up, means your orgasm can be extra intense.
The good feeling will last Your brain will release mood-boosting and stress-reducing chemicals for longer, which can extend your post-sex glow, Emily says.
