MIND OVER MAN­HOOD

GQ (Australia) - - FRONT PAGE -

Per­for­mance anx­i­ety is sim­i­lar to hav­ing a Pit­bull song stuck in your head – the less you try to think about it, the greater the pos­si­bil­ity of slip­ping into a hope­less spi­ral. But hope is at hand. “Use your senses – sight, hear­ing, touch, taste, smell – to fo­cus on be­ing in the mo­ment,” says Dr Christo­pher Fox, chair for the So­ci­ety of Aus­tralian Sex­ol­o­gists. “It re­duces the chance of be­ing dis­tracted by any demons.” Con­cen­trate only on the taste of their lips and skin; en­joy the way their hands feel on your body; breathe more slowly, and deeper, to re­lax. See? It’s not that, ahem, hard. Then again, what goes up must come down. The re­frac­tory pe­riod – the time from one or­gasm to another – dif­fers from man to man, and even if your part­ner’s keen to go again, some­times they’ll just have to wait. “Some can get an erec­tion 15-20 min­utes post-or­gasm,” says Dr Fox, “it’s so vari­able – a mix­ture of hor­mones re­leased dur­ing and af­ter ejac­u­la­tion, tired­ness and mus­cle fa­tigue.” So if you’re not gifted with a su­per­hu­man recharge rate, take com­fort in the fact it’s re­ally not your fault.
