PE or Premature ejaculation as its commonly known is a sexual health problem that causes men to ejaculate before or immediately after penetration. This medical issue is a serious one with experts like Thomas. J. Walsh, who is a urologist at the University of Washington stating that “Premature ejaculation is a problem that affects almost every man at some point in his life.”
Different people try different tricks into lasting longer in bed that range from singing the national anthem and calculating baseball statistics to mentally replaying your last match of high school football and thinking about how you made that perfect sandwich last weekends.
Unfortunately, those tricks are mere tricks, not techniques designed to combat premature ejaculation. When it comes to the techniques to conquer premature ejaculation, there are two primary treatments: physical and psychological techniques. You may have an overly sensitive penis or may have worries and stress that could be causing you to suffer from premature ejaculation.
Here, we have listed seven techniques that can help you last longer in bed without making you look weird (by singing the national anthem in bed) in front of your partner. These techniques have proven helpful to millions of men around the world, helping them boost their sexual performance and promote a healthy sex life as well. There is one thing to note however, longer lasting sex doesn’t always mean great sex. How long your sex session lasted is not as important to have great sex and to enjoy it with your partner.
With that out of the way, let’s start with number 1:
1. The Woman Should Always Be First
At times, the pressure of sexually pleasing your partner is what causes premature ejaculation. So, if you can help her orgasm first, you will feel less pressured during sex to perform like a stallion. And as for how you get her to come, you can decide what she likes best, your mouth, a toy or your nimble fingers.
2. Biofeedback & Edging
Biofeedback is a scientific term that works on the principle that you can control and regulate the way your body reacts to physical stimulation. This technique has a number of uses with the most common technique used to combat premature ejaculation being Edging.
Edging is when you masturbate while bringing yourself to the edge of orgasm before completely stopping and allowing yourself to cool down. Sex therapist Emily Morse, Ph.D. suggests that using this technique can help your brain and body learn to better your ejaculation mechanism.
3. Taking Pills To Combat Premature Ejaculation
Nowadays, many men opt for pharmaceuticals the help combat their sexual health problems. Best of all, you can now find pills for premature ejaculation that can be bought without a prescription from the doctor as these are dietary supplements.
However, many of these supplements, while effective, are not tested and approved by the FDA and use ingredients that contain antidepressants designed to boost your libido and eliminate premature ejaculation.
4. Applying The Squeeze
The squeeze is a technique that has helped many men control their orgasms and is relatively simple to do. What this technique in tells is that as you start to feel your orgasm approaching, stop and apply pressure and squeeze the penis right below the head.
Your aim should be squeezing the urethra which is the tube that is situated at the underside of the penis. This causes blood to be pushed out of the penis, decreasing sexual tension and delaying orgasm.
5. Using De-Sensitizers
De-Sensitizers are products or tools that help lessen the sensations experienced by your penis which can help reduce premature ejaculation. This can be helpful if your penis is very sensitive and it’s easy for you to reach orgasm.
This lack of sensation can be by using tropical sprays that contain local anesthetics and work similarly to the anesthetics your dentist uses on your gums before working out your teeth. The decrease in sensitivity of the penis can be beneficial with Dr. Walsh saying “When used properly, you can adjust the amount of desensitization with these sprays, and it won’t transfer to your partner.”
6. Using Thicker Condoms
The major manufacturers of condoms provide various condom sizes with different styles including thick and thin condoms. The thick rubber layer of the condom can act as a slip-on de-sensitizer which can be great for decreasing the sensitivity of your penis without affecting the pleasure felt by your partner.
Most manufacturers use terms like “extended pleasure” and “performax” to describe a condom that is thicker for its ability to de-sensitizer the sensations from your member.
7. Consult An Expert
The last technique for combating premature ejaculation is consulting a professional who knows what he/she is talking about. You can find sexual dysfunction specialists that can be useful after you have tried the other six techniques listed.
Often, simply talking out loud with a sexual dysfunction specialist or a sex therapist can be helpful to your sexual being. This is a method of combating premature ejaculation that will always bear fruit as these experts are highly knowledgeable about any problem or situation you are facing.
