Ways to Overcome Premature Ejaculation

The Stop-Start Technique

This technique is an old system which has been used for quite a while. It sometimes fails though. It is a conscious pause of the thrust when you feel ejaculation is approaching, then a resumption of it when the sensation has waned. However, many men do not bother to stop, because it really is not easy to do so, then the technique fails. Practicing the technique consistency without vaginal penetration, that is, through masturbation techniques, may be an effective way to perfect it. To perform it, bring yourself to that point just before orgasm 3 times, and ejaculate on the fourth attempt. Doing this repeatedly helps prolong the time before the need for ejaculation is felt.

The Squeeze Technique

The squeeze technique works by interrupting blood flow when the ejaculatory response is felt, by gently squeezing the area under the head of the penis and where the shaft of the penis starts. Doing this for about 30 seconds before resuming intercourse helps as a solution, however, it won`t solve the problem permanently.

Use Specialized Condoms 


Using protection during sex is expected of every couple that does not want a baby and for protection against diseases. As effective as condoms may be, a number of them don`t correct the problem of premature ejaculation. However, there are specialized condoms that are made just to help solve this problem. They are either thicker than the average condom, in an effort to reduce penile stimulation, decreasing the likelihood of premature ejaculation, or they contain retardants that act just as anesthetic sprays or creams do. These condoms will likely be more costly than plain lubricated ones, but they are undoubtedly a reliable way to subdue premature ejaculation.

Try Using a Topical Cream or Spray

Topical creams and sprays are among the most commonly used treatments for overcoming premature ejaculation, and this is because they work have proven to be effective in many cases to many a man. A number of them contain ingredients that function as anesthetics, and these compounds numb the penis. This certainly reduces the likelihood of premature ejaculation, however, reduces sexual pleasure. The reduction of sexual pleasure may further lead to loss of stimuli or sensation, hence, loss of erection.

If you’ve never used one before, start by choosing a product with milder anesthetics and gauge your individual response to it.

Strengthen the Pelvic Floor Muscles

The pelvic floor muscles have vital roles to play in sexual health. These muscles are particularly important for supporting the prostate and the bladder in males, and the vagina in females. The pelvic floor muscles can help interrupt ejaculation as it is about to happen by short-circuiting the sensory stimuli that release semen. First, you need to figure out which muscles you can target to decrease the occurrence of premature ejaculation. There are certain physical exercises that are excellent at strengthening the muscles of the pelvic floor. There is a simple exercise that is effective at strengthening resistance to premature ejaculation; it is to deliberately break the stream of urine midway. Repeating this a few times during the day improves urethral resistance and also helps overcome premature ejaculation. You should be aware that as males grow, these muscles get weaker, hence more likelihood that premature ejaculation occurs.

Meditate Regularly


The first day I saw this, it amazed me. I was trying to figure out how I could solve a problem which had so much to do with action by appearing passive. Well, I was wrong. In fact, meditation is one technique that promises a longer solution than others. Meditation teaches control over the mind, and the mind, to a large extent,  is responsible for ejaculation, and the premature one too. Here’s why: In actual fact, fear of performance, anxiety, or stress are major reasons men ejaculate prematurely. So meditation is helpful here. What else?  Meditation is a proven technique to relieve stress, and it helps improve your testosterone levels. All these make meditation excellent for improving control of sexual pleasure.

Reduce your Intensity

If your kind of intercourse can be likened a highly competitive race, one which you thrust so fast and tirelessly,  then it may not be surprising that you ejaculate so quickly. So here’s the logic behind it: The faster your thrusts and intensity, the faster you are likely to ejaculate. Try not to focus on the end goal of ejaculating, or impressing your partner, rather, focus on enjoying the lovemaking. Again, this has a lot to do with the mind, as you need to distract yourself from one thing,  which is the need to perform excellently, and focus on another,  which is enjoyment, which really,  is a reason of sex.

See your Doctor 

If after trying all the techniques listed above, premature ejaculation still persists,  then you need to see your doctor.  You may need some anti-depressant medications that do work to treat this embarrassing condition.  A reason the techniques above might not have worked is the possible presence of erectile dysfunction. But not to worry,  as it can be treated,  and you can be that champion in bed again.

Ejaculation Facts

  • Ejaculation is that it is controlled by the brain, more specifically the central nervous system. The stimulation of the genitals brings about the release of semen from the testes.
  • After ejaculating, it is recommended that one consumes fluids like juices or coconut water, which contain electrolytes, to replenish the fluids lost.
  • Ejaculation releases semen, which is present in sperm. The lifespan of sperm after ejaculation is roughly 30 seconds to six days, depending on the conditions the sperm is subjected to.
  • An average amount of semen secreted during each ejaculation measures between two to six milliliters.
  • Semen is released during ejaculation and contains chemical compounds such as fructose, spermicide and some other alkaline substances, which sterilize the vagina. These substances aid the sperm and make the vagina a hospitable place to receive the sperm.
  • Regular ejaculation prevents prostate cancer. because ejaculation flushes toxins from the testes and penis through semen, hence reducing one’s risk of developing cancerous tumors.

Final Words…

Premature Ejaculation, in many cases,  lies in the mind of the men who experience it. It sometimes is as a result of the need to impress their partners or even the fear of the occurrence of premature ejaculation itself — a reason controlling sexual stimulation and mind control are vital. Desensitizing products, as effective as they may be, when relied upon for a while,  may not be effective anymore. This issue is a somewhat disturbing one in more relationships than you would have imagined. But of course, because of how sensitive it is,  a number of people don’t talk about it. Sharing this post may just save some of these relationships.
