A surprisingly common phenomenon that strikes men of all ages, premature ejaculation can limit sexual satisfaction and cause significant self-esteem issues. There are two types of premature ejaculation: lifelong and acquired. In both cases, premature ejaculation is considered ejaculation within the first two minutes of sexual intercourse or action. This does not mean that a man is unable to stay aroused or is inconsiderate of his partner. In fact, those who suffer premature ejaculation are by no means doomed to underwhelming sexual performance; the problem can be controlled, to an extent.
Many men have learned to control ejaculation using the following techniques:
Pelvic Floor Exercises
Aren’t these exercises for women who have just given birth and want to rebuild pelvic muscle? The answer is yes, however, men can benefit just as much from doing pelvic floor exercises. These exercises, also called Kegels, can help strengthen the muscles used to control premature ejaculation.
Here are a few tips for effective pelvic floor exercises:
- Finding the right muscles is essential. To locate them, stop urinating midstream or tighten the muscles that keep you from passing gas. Once you have located these muscles, you can do these in any position.
- To perfect the technique, hold the contraction for around 3 seconds, relax and then repeat. You can do this a few times in a row. When the muscles get stronger, try doing the exercises standing, sitting to walking–this will only help strengthen them even more.
- Do these exercises at least three times a day, do three sets of 10 repetitions a day for best results.
Masturbation training can make a huge difference, but it takes time. In the meantime, some men are able to find relief via drug store products such as topical sprays or thick condoms. These products help by reducing stimulation, therefore decreasing the odds of premature ejaculation. However, they do not grant full control or provide a long-term solution to ejaculation problems.
Those who do not respond to other methods may benefit from medical intervention. Through careful assessment, experts can determine whether current medications or other life circumstances are to blame for premature ejaculation. They explore not only the biological manifestations of the issue, but they also examine a variety of psychological elements that may contribute or be entirely to blame for the problem. Customized medication can also reduce the problem, granting men greater control over their sexuality. A single treatment can reverse the condition and leave men feeling far more confident, both in and out of the bedroom.
From masturbation techniques to medical intervention, a variety of tools can be used to delay or completely control ejaculation. It takes work, but both men and their partners agree that the reward is well worth the effort.
