The refractory period refers to that period of time between one’s last ejaculation at orgasm and the next and it changes with age.


In a young man in his late teens or early 20s, the refractory period can be as short as two-five minutes. But as men age, the refractory period lengthens. In one’s late 20s, the period maybe 15-30 minutes between orgasms. In one’s 40s, the period is even longer and may be as long three to four hours. 


No drugs have been approved to shorten the refractory period, but research has shown that Viagra, Cialis or Levitra - drugs used to treat erectile dysfunction - may reduce recovery time. Some people also purchase over the counter medication from a pharmacy, e.g. Oto (chao jimengnam).
