Edging: Nature’s Viagra

There is no surprise that some people prefer sex that lasts long, and in such unrealistic performance pressure, people end up using Viagra. Viagra is a medication used by both penis owners and vagina owners for longer (better) sexual experience. 


Sex Drive in penis-owners and viagra:

For a penis-owner. During sexual stimulation (that involves sexual excitement) the brain sends signals through nerves to the blood vessels to relax and the vessels widen, causing blood flow into the penis to increase. Due to this, more blood enters the penis which makes it stiff and long, hence causing an erection. After sexual intercourse (ejaculation or coming), the blood flows out of the penis causing it to return to it’s normal flaccid (soft) form. With this state, the penis is unfit for an another round of sexual intercourse, hence some penis-owners use Viagra for long-lasting erection. 

Sildenafil or Viagra, can also be used to stimulate erections in people with Erectile Dysfunction.

Sex Drive in vagina-owners and viagra:

For vagina owners, as they become sexually aroused, blood flow to the the genitals increases, which in return induces the release of fluid from the cervix, which provides lubrication during sexual activity. After a round of sexual intercourse, the vagina becomes dry which results in low libido. This is when some vagina-owners (who haven’t got their menopause) use viagra.

Most people aren’t aware of the fact that viagra is also available for vagina-pwners. Addyi and Vyleesi are two drugs that have been approved by the Food and Administration to increase sexual desire and libido in vagina-owners.

Viagra savior for some but not for all:

Although viagra sounds like an easy and viable option,many people are unfit to use it. Sildenafil can be dangerous for certain patients:

  1. With cardiovascular problems
  2. who are predisposed to priapism (painful erections lasting more than 4 hours)
  3. With a history of non arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION)
  4. with heart disease that require nitroglycerin pills
  5. With antihypertensives

Even if people may not suffer from any of the above conditions, there is still a chance they may face the side effects of Sildenafil. Which may include:

  • warmth or redness in the face, neck, or chest,
  • stuffy nose
  • Headaches,
  • Stomach pain
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Memory problems
  • Back pain

Edging: Nature’s Viagra

In simple words, Edging is the practice of getting very close to the big O (orgasm) and then! STOP. Again build up the heat then stop at the very moment to avoid the climax, so that finally one experiences a bigger, more explosive, intensifying and better Orgasm.

For penis-owners who ejaculate prematurely, find edging very beneficial as it increases the duration of sex. Now, they do not have to be dependent on drugs like Sildenafil (Viagra). They can now experience long-lasting erection without Viagra

For vagina-owners, Edging can help in increasing the sex drive and allow them to experience to a much more powerful orgasm which is much more passionate and enjoyable. Edging also helps in being aroused and keeping the wetness for a longer duration.

Step by Step Procedure to practice Edging:

  1. Edging is the practice of stopping right before the climax, during the penetratitve sex. For penis-owners, the best method is the ‘start-stop’ technique. In this method, the penetrator just has to stop before cumming.
  2. Another great method is to squeeze the tip/head of the penis for about 30 seconds, to stop stimulation and ejaculation. Although, it is advised to be careful while adopting squeezing technique.
  3. For vulva-owners, practicing edging before actual sexual intercourse can be really helpful, like using a vibrator with easy on/off system.They can practise it by using it and stop the sex-toy just before the big O. 
  4. Another effective way of practicing edging is masturbation. Vulva-owners can practise to control their orgasm by masturbating and stop right before ejaculating or squirting.
  5. For partners during sex, diversion becomes another great method to control orgasm. For example, for a vagina-owner sexual arousal can stopped when their partners stop stimulating their genitals (clitoris) and start touching any other body part- breasts or neck.

Although in no way, we try to promote any kind of sexual-performance pressure, but for people who are interested in learning and knowing ways to increase the duration of the sexual activity, this article could be very useful.

Viagra promises a night of long sexual activity, but also comes with various problems and side-effects which is why people choose edging over using viagra. Edging is indeed nature’s Viagra, with almost no side effects. Rarely there can be one or two cases of blue balls, otherwise it is completely safe to practice and equally exciting to perform.
