Focus: Sensate focus is one strategy as well as the squeeze technique. Some have had benefit from meds like paroxetine although it can have some side effects with wear-off. The old adage was to recite baseball statistics to yourself as a distraction - but any means of distraction may also delay ejaculation. Performance anxiety can take a twist here prompting an unnecessary sense of urgency.

The best way to last longer is to have more frequent sex. The time to ejaculation will increase with each subsequent ejaculation.

Prolonging sex: I agree with trying to distract yourself for a moment prior to the time when an orgasm becomes inevitable. For example, one might try counting backwards from 100 by sevens. Like-100, 93, 86.. And so on. Good luck.
