Confusion reigns about edging for prolonged orgasm. Here are a few examples:
The first and most likely the clumsiest definition from
The Urban Dictionary:
"Getting seconds away from climax and then stopping and waiting a few seconds, then starting again, do this a few more times then you meant to have an amazing long climax and you feel great."
On Wikipedia there is a lot more to be said about Edging:

And these words of eternal wisdom from Cosmopolitan:
Vague and Vacant
The Problem with these quotes is that they are pretty low on how to actually edge.
They say edge and you will have long / extended / prolonged orgasms.
Yet there is not one article that explains exactly how to Edge.
A few years ago when I looked on Wikipedia there was a good description of exactly what Edging is - but someone has gone and edited it and now it is merely another generic article that says very little about actual Edging.
I wonder also how many of the authors of these articles can say is they have worked with thousands of men and sex organs, hands on, for almost twelve years?
Not as a Urologist, GP, Oncologist or in any medical sense - but rather in search of the real experiences and the real answers to the questions?

10. Since the bladder, urine and even a woman's vagina (where the semen is headed to) are all quite acidic and semen is alkaline - constantly mixing the two is not the best idea and may cause problems if you habitually lose the semen into the bladder rather than via the penis.
