Sex: Learn to bring your partner to climax with your hands. Ask them to help you by telling you what feels good as you do it. You may have to use lubricant like KY jelly. If you use petroleum jelly you may want to protect the bedding from staining by using a towel under your partner. This will allow you to have intercourse afterward without worrying about how long you last.

How long willtmj last?

Can't tell: The tempomandibular joint can make a person miserable and there's no predicting how long it will last. There are folks who know how to treat this and I'm not one of them; a variety of measures including those that keep you from grinding your teeth at night can help, as can more intensive interventions. Good luck.
