How to Prevent Premature Ejaculation in Men?
It’s not uncommon for guys of all ages to experience problems while having intercourse. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro at sex — all of us can have trouble with premature ejaculation. The reasons are many, but luckily for you, we’re here to explain how to get better.
Manage Your Anxiety
Anxiety is something all of us struggle with. Therefore, it’s not strange that it affects all aspects of our lives. From mundane daily activities to our relationships, they’re all in some way controlled by fear and anxiety. Unfortunately, sex comes under fire too.
Male sexual activity can suffer if you are anxious. Mostly, you’ll end up having trouble with premature ejaculation. The fear of sexual dysfunction (having difficulty keeping your penis erect) will cause your body to finish the job as soon as possible. It’s just a natural way of spilling your load before your dong becomes flaccid.
But anxiety isn’t only associated with erectile problems; it can come from elsewhere too. Job stress, relationship problems (See relationship common problems), and all kinds of other factors can cause premature ejaculation. It’s critical to relax and stop thinking about anything else rather than the actual sexual encounter you’re dealing with.
Moreover, it’s important to embrace the act you’re participating in fully. Even if it sounds hard and somewhat impossible — it’s not. To evade the point of no return, refusing to think about problems will help you to allow your body to enjoy sex way more. Lasting longer in sex isn’t a talent — it’s pure training and management.
Do Kegel Exercises
Delaying ejaculation is closely related to the strength of your pelvic floor muscles. Their ability to contract and expand is what makes us last longer in bed. It’s pure science, just like your biceps help with lifting heavier objects. Hence, learning how to improve your muscles’ endurance and strength is crucial when treating premature ejaculation.
A recent study by the American Urologist Institute revealed that one in five males under 60 years of age has problems spilling their load early. Like Jim from that obnoxious teen comedy from the late 90s, “American Pie,” we just cannot accept that! It’s time for it to stop! And applying Kegel exercises can help most people.
Applying 20-minute pelvic muscle exercises three times a week can make all the difference. In three months, you’ll see real improvements with how long you can last in bed. It won’t be a miracle number, but you’ll add a couple of minutes to enjoyment before ejaculation occurs.
Contracting and releasing your pelvic muscles for about three seconds will prove to be enough. Doing so for about ten times in one session will work fine. Just remember to do this while walking, sitting, or standing. It’s important to have variety in your exercise, and in different body positions, you’ll have just that.
Another way to go about your premature ejaculation problem is to try out the start-stop method. Even if not a scientifically proven technique, it can prove to be rather beneficial for lots of guys. It’s simple and fun if you compare it with Kegel exercises. Training while masturbating sounds better than counting, doesn’t it?
The start-stop method is simple. The whole point is to stop masturbating once you feel like you’ve reached an orgasm. Follow your usual wanking routine (watch porn, go to the bathroom, or whatever else you do) and start touching your penis. Gradually up the intensity, and one you feel like you’re going to come — stop!
Take a break for about a minute or two and then start again. The more you do it, the more you’ll get to know how your body works. It’s important to realize that feeling when your penis is about to ejaculate. That will help you with actual intercourse too.
After a while, feel free to finish. The whole thing is to tease yourself and to make your penis less sensitive. The more you deny your body to do what it’s naturally supposed to, the longer you’ll enjoy sex.
Change Your Masturbation Habits
When something’s not working, it’s only normal that we try to change our approach. The same goes for masturbation and premature ejaculation (PE). No matter how innovative you’ve been spanking your salami, there’s always something new you could try. So, let’s mention a few sex tips for men.
If you’re used to watching porn, you might experiment with different genres. Trying something out of the blue might prove to be more beneficial to your masturbation technique. For example, you could look for something slower and less extreme, or vice versa.
On the other hand, maybe it’s time you stop watching it altogether. Perhaps you could benefit more from closing your eyes and imagining your favorite scenario. Porn can be great, but we can certainly argue how it changed our sex lives in recent years. Its availability is so widespread that enjoying yourself to it may be counterproductive.
Also, some might find it useful to play around with sex toys. Just like girls, guys also have all sorts of toys and gadgets made just for them. From flashlights to cock rings, there’s too many to mention. Therefore, incorporating them could prove to be a turning point in your premature ejaculation scenario.
All kinds of factors will dictate how long a man can last before reaching an orgasm. One of the prominent ingredients is certainly your body’s position. Depending on your hips, you’ll act differently in terms of thrusting and intensity. And by controlling that, the male will have more control over his body.
One of the best positions for lasting longer is spooning. In case you don’t know what it is, we’ll quickly explain. Spooning means both partners will lie on their sides, with the male behind, facing the same direction. Lying like that, your body’s position will allow your penis to be less sensitive as it enters your partner from behind.
But in case you’re more into allowing her to take control, playing around with the famous cowgirl pose will also help with PE. As you lay on your back, your partner will side on top of you and control the intensity. That way, you won’t fall into the trap of naturally going for what feels great. Of course, talking while doing it is vital for her to know when to slow down or even stop.
See a Doctor
Lastly, in case none of these tips we’ve given work, go see a doctor. Taking medicine on your own is never a good option. It’s important to realize that something’s wrong and that the only person who could help you is a urologist. Not only will he know what to do when it comes to PE, but he will also check for other related conditions.
Applying anesthetic creams by yourself can lead to unforeseen consequences. But side effects aren’t the only thing to worry about. Playing with medicine can cause new problems. Therefore, we dearly suggest you talk to a professional.
Remember that study we mentioned in the beginning? Well, yes, it was done by doctors that knew what they were doing. And with their help, more than 80 percent of patients improved their sex lives. So, knowing that there’s even a slight chance of making things better if you schedule an appointment, is it worth risking your health on your own?
