How long is to long for holding an erection?

After reading about the average male orgasm time to be around 3 minutes and reading something at the end of Viagra commercials about calling a physician if an erection lasts longer than 2 hours. I am curious to ask is it dangerous to have sexual intercourse up to 3 hours. I knew from masturbating that I have some control over when I ejaculate and maybe I am not as sensitive as the average male seeing that I can last so long without ejaculating. Also is it safe for the girl to have intercourse for such a prolonged time, some girls I have been with complained about being sore after an hour or so. Which is somewhat frustrating seeing as how they have already had multiple orgasms and I have yet to climax. Obviously if the girl knows how to give good head then this is no problem but most of the women I have been with are no good and I feel bad having to just masturbate to climax. To be honest sex is not all that great other than the extreme feeling I get from pleasuring her, other than that masturbating myself feels so much better...

no its not dangerous if its natural..

Some medications like Viagra and Trazadone, ect, can cause a painful lasting erection that can be very dangerous. Thats all I know about ti though

Re: How long is to long for holding an erection?

Since most complain about being sore after an hour as you said, you could provide more moisture. I even tend to get sore after awhile, but then I realize that even though I am having sexual intercourse I am also dry there. I've even sat there before and wondered how could I be dry when it seems impossible.

With Viagra you call a doc if it lasts more than four hours.

Re: How long is to long for holding an erection?

Where does this 3 min orgasm being the average come from? Is their an average ? I would think if there is one thing that could not be averaged out it would be an orgasm, I have had an orgasm in one min-to 30 min it depends on arousal levels not on averages. 3 min give me a break it takes me a lot longer than three min on average. I will never understand where this average stuff comes from, now you will have guys that go 15 in or 8 min thinking something is wrong with them. Their is no average ?

Re: How long is to long for holding an erection?

If you say had an erection for like 2 or 3 days it'd be like a form of frost bite and might even fall off. An erection happens because much of the blood is stopped from escaping the penis and the blood pressure causes the penis to enlarge, like those cartoons in which people stand on hose pipes. Such restricted blood flow isn't exactly heathly for very long peroids of time.

I've had plenty of erections that lasted 2 hours or more. The stimulation was continuous in those cases. You only need to worry if your penis stays erect for an extended period (hours) after you have stopped stimulating it.

Re: How long is to long for holding an erection?

I think i have also heard that the average male ejaculates during sex in about 3 minutes, assuming it's skin to skin contact with no condom, and no masturbation prior. but i'm not sure.

Isn't Trazadone a depressant ? I believe this is used for people with insomnia.

Re: How long is to long for holding an erection?

Wow, THREE hours??!! I envy your gf! I'd be willing to bet that my husband has never gone for more than 20 minutes tops (most times it's 10 minutes or less), and we've been married for 24 years. I'd say you're lucky that you can last that long, but I'm not so sure that you're that happy about that. Maybe if the girl would use her hands or mouth on you, perhaps you'd get more excited and maybe not last as long? That is definitely an above 'average' amount of time, but I see nothing wrong with it; it shouldn't cause you harm in any way other than being frustrated that you're lasting that long. Maybe you just aren't with the right girl? Or has this happened with every girl who you've ever been with? I really wish my husband has your problem. Sorry, I don't mean to make light of it; it's just that I get jealous or something when I read some of these threads. It doesn't mean that your sitatuation is any less annoying than some things that I have to put up with here. I guess we all have our complaints, huh? Well, I wish you luck in climaxing sooner. I hope the girl is willing to work on you a little more or something. Unless I misunderstood, I'm assuming that you aren't intentionally holding back all that time, or I guess you wouldn't be posting with a problem then, huh? Take care.

Trazodone is an anti-depressant but it's side effect of drowsiness is used for sleeping. In rare cases, it does cause priapism.

Agree with you! I believe it's all in stimulation. The excitement. And if a woman is dry get some K Y jellies. or motion lotions. They seem to work well when you have sex for long periods of time. And about the masterbation?! It seems you have a lot of time on your hands..lol....

Good Luck..
