It’s a cold, wet, Saturday afternoon. You’ve been home all day, bored with nothing to do. You hop on Grindr and start talking to a few guys. One guy you’ve sparked up a conversation with starts talking about how he’s been ‘edging’ for hours, and you have no idea what the hell he’s talking about.
What is edging?
Edging is when you spend and extended length of time, bringing yourself close to the point of ejaculation, but stop abruptly and purposefully just before it happens.
Why do guys edge?
Edging allows for a greater build of a climax. It also extends the opportunity for sexual pleasure over a long period of time. For many guys, once they ejaculate, they are done with sexual play. It’s common to spend hours watching porn, fantasizing, and/or remembering past sexual encounters while edging.
Edging could be by yourself or with a partner. It can be done through masturbation, oral sex, and even intercourse. Edging is a solution many partners use if one frequently ejaculates early. It provides a greater sense of control. It can also be used during BDSM as a way to control your partner, bringing them to the point of orgasm, without allowing them to finish.
Orgasms reached after a long edging session are often larger and more powerful, and provider a greater sense of sexual relief.
