Just a few quick questions about sex. I am 17 and have been having sex with my girlfriend for about a year.

How long should a male last during sex. Usually i last about 45 - 60 mins. How can i last longer?

Secondly, What is a good way to boost my stamina in bed?

Thanks For Your Time!

User avatar Hello,

There is no real 'normal' to answer your question. On the average young men tend to be able maintain an erection for anywhere between 40 to 60 minutes. You seems to be normal in that regard.

Generally speaking, alcohol, cigarette smoking as well as some medications and diseases can lead to erectile problems.
