1407_combo_0302For some of you, the topic of masturbation and not achieving an orgasm may be a hard one to swallow. But trust me, edging has changed my sex life, and it may just change yours too. Now you don’t have to worry because this method has gone through some personal, rigorous testing, and since it’s been tried and true, I wanted to share my experience and some of the benefits with you.

What? No Orgasm?

I know what you’re all thinking. Edging seems counter intuitive and goes against what all men are taught. Yes, that’s what I thought too. All until I finally overcame the urge to drop my load per se. The point of edging is not to cause frustration but to increase your pleasure and sensitivity. Now I’ll be honest, when I first started, I found myself saying, “f*ck it” and went for the sweet release. But then I got better at holding off on the orgasm. It’s all about mind over batter, right? If you’re like me, you may have to lather, rinse and repeat a few times just to increase your willpower. With every successful attempt, you will experience increased sensation and pleasure for much longer.

Here’s a descriptive explanation on how edging is applied. It’s very simple. Take your favorite lube and masturbation device, or better yet, get a blow job, engage in intercourse anytime, anyplace and with anyone, and then, get really close but just don’t come—or have an orgasm. Whichever word tickles your fancy.  My recommendation is to get close to coming, then slow your roll for as long as possible and really focus on the journey of pleasure. Diversions like kissing and touching will help you to stay close to the edge without wheeling the entire cart over. Edging creates an entirely new awakening for sexual well-being especially when the orgasm is taken out of the equation.

If masturbation is going to be your source of pleasure, might I suggest using something a little different than the usual hand?  I have (no pun intended) had the pleasure to start exploring the Tenga line of male masturbation toys. Masturbating with your hand your entire adult life can become incredibly mundane. If you are going to develop the overall strength of your penis, shouldn’t you be using something that feels as close to sex as possible? I was hesitant at first. I wasn’t impressed with my first penis sleeve experience a few years back, so I didn’t think I needed one. Then I tried the Tenga Egg. SOLD. These babies are soft, amazingly pleasurable, and covered in different shaped and textured diodes. A plus to me was also that they did not try to replicate the appearance of a body part, so they are easier to leave laying around the house. Going back to your hand seems like plan B after your first test run with one of these and certainly feels closer to the actual intercourse. If solo, just seems the best way to conquer sensitivity.

No Gym Required

life_on_edgeEdging is very much like working out and is something that can be practiced during a long evening, lunch break or over the span of a week and in the privacy of your own dwelling. Just like the other muscles you have, the more you intentionally and consciously work at it, the better your performance. This type of workout, however, does not require personal trainer (unless you want one). If you do enlist the help of your partner, make it fun by creating a game of tease but no please. Then at the end of the week, viola, you get a cheat day!

Benefits of Edging

With edging, there are all kinds of varied benefits. Between day 5 to 7 you may notice testosterone spikes, insane amounts of energy, elevated mood and the overwhelming desire to dry hump virtually any thing at penis-level. Plus, you may experience harder and stronger erections, which by the way, my girlfriend noticed immediately (hey, it’s a big day in my world when two people notice a bigger penis).

By continuously masturbating without achieving orgasm, it will help your penis become more engorged, causing it to feel more erect and sensitive while substantially increasing arousal. Aside from just having a harder and larger looking penis, you’ll notice something else when you finally do reach climax—semen retention. I’m certain that none of you have heard your partner whisper, “just come a little?” Well with edging, coming just a little is an oxymoron. This is because edging helps to build up enough reserve ejaculate to blow the roof of your house.


When you don’t orgasm for a week you may experience, what I call, quite the party in your pants. Suddenly, your penis may develop a mind of its own. When you finally do engage in sex, all the increased sensitivity, in combination with the built up testosterone, may cause you to act like a character in the Fast and the Furious, and before you can utter “I’m coming!” the show is over. A great way to maximize the benefits of edging is to engage in slow and thoughtful foreplay. You’ll be more aware and conscious during sex and will feel more connected to your partner. After a few weeks of mindful edging, you may even experience insanely mind buzzing, full body multiple orgasms.

When it comes to experiencing all that sex and intimacy has to offer, you’ll need to get just more than the sexual organs involved. Edging helps increase the happy hormones in the brain and is a fun way to learn self-control. Plus, it also allows you to experience a whole new level of pleasure from intense orgasms, to being able to tease your partner all week long. So, if you want to try something new, and take your sexual arousal up a notch, why not explore an entirely new sexual method of edging. Go ahead, and mark your calendar for next Monday then pleasure your way all until Sunday. With rewards like a larger feeling penis and mind-blowing orgasms, you’ll be glad you did.

Here’s to clean eating and dirty sex.
