Cum Control and Effects of Edging

Edging is a method of sexual stimulation where the person becomes sexually aroused to the point of orgasm, but stops before actually reaching orgasm. Then, the person often starts the cycle again to reach that “edge.” The goal of edging and orgasm control is often to prolong sex or masturbation, or to achieve a more intense orgasm/ejaculation.

Edging Cumshot - Is It Bigger?

There are several effects of edging, but the main point of edging for many men is to achieve a larger and more intense ejaculation. As a man approaches orgasm the body readies semen for ejaculation. Stopping before orgasm allows the body to build up more ejaculate than a regular orgasm would product had the man not edged. 


So the answer is; Yes! Edging can absolutely product a larger volume of semen, as well as a more intense orgasm (1).


How To Edge Yourself

Masturbation is a common method of edging. The simple method is, as you approach orgasm, stop before you achieve orgasm. This can be done in a number of ways. Changing masturbation technique is an easy way to make sure you don’t orgasm.


If you’re with a partner, it’s a great time to change sexual positions with them, or take a break. You can also mix in what would previously be considered foreplay, for a less intense sexual option that might not cause you to orgasm.


Paying attention to specific parts of your partner’s genitals like the penis head or labia, rather than the entire thing, is a method of sexual stimulation that can keep the orgasm on the edge, while making sure not to push over the edge.

   

Ruined Orgasm

A “Ruined Orgasm” is when, while orgasming (usually a male) the person causing the orgasm stops providing stimulation. This can be done while masturbating, so you would stop touching yourself once you begin cumming. It can also be done with a partner. A common method is the partner giving oral sex, and when the man starts to orgasm, stops the oral sex.


Some people seek out ruined orgasms, while others hate the practice. It’s important to know what your partner likes before trying a ruined orgasm.


Edging and Premature Ejaculation

People who experience premature ejaculation may find edging beneficial because it can increase the duration of sex before orgasm. Increasing the duration of sexual activity can change the intensity and move the focus away from the orgasm, and instead engage in less intense sexual activity. This can allow people to spend more time enjoying the process of stimulation.


Orgasm Control for Women

Women can engage in edging and orgasm control the same as men. This can be done through masturbation or with a partner. One important thing when edging as a woman or with a woman is to know that the clitoris is extremely sensitive, so if edging and orgasm control is the goal, you must remember to be gentle, and pay attention to how your partner responds. Paying special attention to the labia, and anywhere other than the clitoris is a great way to build closer to orgasm without pushing over the edge.


Edging Porn

An increasingly popular porn category is "edging." This usually involves a woman performing oral sex on a man in a slow, less intense technique. During the blowjob the woman often starts and stops sucking and licking, causing the man to experience varied levels of arousal and intensity. 


Like with masturbation, the effects of edging from oral sex or a handjob ends with an intense ejaculation, or with a ruined orgasm.
