Start-Stop Technique

The start-stop technique is a technique guys (or men) can use to last longer during sex.

The start-stop technique, as the name implies, involves a guy starting sex as usual but stopping (or halting) when he feels he’s about to ejaculate sooner than he would want to.

This technique helps delay ejaculation and prolong intercourse.

It’s also known as the start-stop method or the start and stop technique.

Here’s how exactly one last longer during sex using the start and stop technique…

When a guy (or a man) is having sex and he feels like he’s about to ejaculate sooner than he would want to, he stops thrusting and wait for a few seconds for his excitement to subside… then he resumes intercourse again.

Here, the guy needs to make sure to completely relax his body when he stops thrusting… and take in deep breaths.

So here’s how it goes:

  1. the guy feels he’s getting too excited and feels an impending ejaculation
  2. he then stops penetration to hold back the impending ejaculation
  3. in order to not to lose control, he completely relaxes his body and takes in deep breaths – he breathes deeply and slowly into his belly and out through his mouth
  4. and when he feels he’s ready to thrust again, he resumes

A man can do this as many times as he wants until he decides he wants to let go.

Practicing the start-stop technique using masturbation

A man can use masturbation as an exercise to practice the stop and start technique…

…to know when to halt (stop) thrusting and when to resume (start).

Here’s how it’s done:

  1. he starts pleasuring himself
  2. as things get too intense and he feels he’s about to ejaculate, he stops
  3. he relaxes his body and specifically his ejaculatory muscle and then takes in slow deep breaths
  4. next, he waits for his excitement or arousal to drop, then resume stimulation again
  5. he repeats steps 1 to 4 for about 15 minutes before letting himself go

This exercise will help a guy become more conscious about his sexual arousal and more importantly, how he can control his excitement to last longer during sex.

And once he masters this start-stop technique or start-stop method, he’ll be in a better position to develop greater ejaculatory control and last longer during sex.

Does the stop and start technique work?


Many guys swear by this technique…

Stopping all forms of stimulation when one feels too excited will ensure that he doesn’t ejaculate sooner than he would want to.

But of course, combining the stop-start technique (or the stop-start method) with other effective techniques will make it easier for any guy to delay ejaculation and last longer in bed.

The stop-start technique together with the squeeze technique works very well

Combining the start-stop technique with the Squeeze Technique gives a guy better ejaculatory control and helps him last a lot longer.

For instance, when a guy is having sex and he feels he’s about to ejaculate sooner than he would want, he then stops… pulls out, and squeezes the head of his penis…

…here, he places his thumb on the head of his penis (on the coronal ridge), and his forefinger behind the head of the penis (on the frenulum) and then gently applies pressure against the urethra – the tube that carries semen and urine out of the penis.

Now, when the guy feels the urge to ejaculate has subsided, he then resumes intercourse.

So there you have it…

…the stop-start technique.

Any guy who uses this technique when having sex can delay ejaculation and prolong the sex.
