Edging: What Is It And Does It Work?

Premature ejaculation is a problem that a lot of people face, and even if it isn’t something you struggle with medically, you might find that you often blow your load before you are ready. We all want sex to last that little bit longer, which is why people go looking for techniques online. When you start looking, you might come across the edging technique.

Edging is something that many people swear by, claiming that it is the best way for you to enjoy sex and delay your ejaculation… but it is sometimes difficult to figure out whether these techniques actually work. We take a look here on the Escort Scotland blog at the edging technique, taking a look at what it is, why people do it, and if it actually works.

What is edging?

Edging has become a very popular technique for people to try at the moment. The aim of it is to delay your orgasm and build up your tolerance so that you can last a little longer… because we all know how much it can suck when you cum too soon. You might have high expectations of what is going to happen, only for your body to betray you and end your hot and steamy sex session.

In it, you bring yourself as close as you can to the point of orgasm, without crossing “the point of no return”. This point is when you cannot stop your orgasm. By getting close to it, but not crossing it, you can give yourself the chance to calm down and come back from your orgasm. This means that you can enjoy sex for longer.

Why do people edge?

For some people, the decision to edge is easy. They do it in the hope of delaying their orgasm and giving them the chance to instead focus on teasing and pleasing their partner in the bedroom. They want to last long enough to make their partner feel good, instead of simply cumming and leaving sex at that.

However, it can also lead to really intense orgasms. The constant build up and then stop will make you and your partner desperate for the release of orgasm, and so when you finally decide to go for it, it will be incredibly passionate and fast.

Does it work?

The big question here is does edging work? Well, the big consensus from those who try to edge is that, yes, it does work. By stopping sex when things get too intense, it gives you a chance to stop your orgasm from happening. During this time you can then concentrate on getting your partner as close to orgasm as possible with the use of your hands and mouth.

It does, however, mean that the next time you get close to orgasm, it won’t take as long. This means that you will need to be a lot more diligent about when you are close to orgasm so that you can stop in time. This does also mean that you get a much more intense orgasm when you finish, and it will leave you feeling totally amazing.

The solo edge

A lot of people choose to edge alone. This is so that they can learn where their limit is without the pressure of needing to stop in time for their partner. If you do end up going over the edge, it’s okay. There is always next time. Plus, doing it on your own means that you get the chance to enjoy masturbation and learn what works best for you.

When people try solo edging, they might simply jerk off to a porn video and then stop the video and their action when they get too close to cumming. However, a lot of people prefer to take on a challenge instead. One of the most popular is the 100 to 1 challenge. This is where you count down slowly from 100 to 1, and you are only allowed to cum when you reach one. This means that you will need to edge in order to succeed, and it will prove to be a lot of fun for you. It also means that, when you do eventually cum, it is going to be one of the best orgasms you have ever had.

Edging with your partner

That said, edging with your partner can be a hell of a lot more rewarding. It will not only give you a more intense orgasm when you do reach the end, but it also gives you the chance to enjoy teasing and pleasing your partner. You might decide that you want to go down on them, licking their clit until they are close to orgasm. You might then decide to simply stop. In no time at all you will find that your partner is begging for you to let them cum, and this is one of the biggest turn ons there is.

Not sure whether edging is for you? There is really only one way to find out. It is well worth trying it, even if it is only the once, as it might just be one of the best things that you have ever done with yourself. You may even want to try the 100 to 1 challenge with your partner, pleasing them as they count down from 100. It will add a kinky twist to your BDSM play.
