Learn How to Delay Ejaculation with 4 Proven Methods
Beforehand, you should know that this won’t be an instant process – it will require patience and a bit of hard work. Premature ejaculation is an ordinary issue that plagues many men, that’s an important fact to know considering the taboo surrounding it.
This trouble is characterized by an incapacity to control excitation which results in a very fast ejaculation that will dramatically shorten the sexual act. Consequently, premature ejaculation will create dissatisfaction for the man and also, his partner. (1)
Moreover, it’s important to note that a lack of confidence and fear about sexual performance can aggravate the phenomenon. However, whether it’s due to a lack of experience, a stress increase or a physical issue, there’s no need to panic.
Thankfully, we can nowadays deal with it efficiently and regain a normal sexuality by following these 4 proven methods.
1. Slow Things Down at the Right Moment
If passion is overtaking all of your other senses, then I highly recommend you to try the following exercise. This exercise was developed by the renowned American sexologists Masters and Johnson – it’s called the stop & go. By practicing this exercise regularly, you will be able to balance your levels of excitement, in order to extend your naughty activities.
So, how do you get started?
First, when you feel like you are about to ejaculate (stop the penetration, if needed), concentrate to block your release. To calm you down, try to go back to foreplay and gentle caresses/kissing. Take your time to enjoy and discover your partners body. Enjoy her smell, curves and revel in the sensuality of the moment.
Only when you are sufficiently calm, you can try penetration again. Furthermore, your partner will appreciate the extra attention to her body. This will built up excitement for her, leading to higher chances for an explosive orgasm.
Extra Tip: If you are really struggling to control yourself before the “explosion” and foreplay doesn’t do the trick. Then, grab your penis with your index and middle finger – compress under the head of your penis (for at least 3 seconds) in order to block ejaculation. This functions 90% of the time.
2. Try Delaying Condoms
Sometimes, premature ejaculation is linked to a hypersensitive head of penis. If your penis is a bit ticklish and a few movements make it explode, you might want to try delaying condoms.
Delaying condoms can be an efficient solution if your little friend is oversensitive.
You have two choices:
- The anatomical condom that will slightly compress the head of your penis and physically delay the ejaculation.
- The condom coated in an anesthetic that reduces skins sensitivity.
This is more of a tool than a solution to delay ejaculation but it will help.
Extra Tip: If you’re not too keen on condoms, you can buy a anesthetic gel. There are several ones to choose from.
3. Reinforce your Pelvic Muscles with Kegel Exercises
Kegel exercises were originally developed for women after childbirth. However, some people realized that they could be very useful to improve erectile function. (2)
Kegel exercises reinforce the pelvic muscles, those are the same muscles that you use when peeing or when having a nice hard erection.
To practice these exercises, start with that one (for 6 to 8 week min.):
- Contract your pelvic muscles for 3 seconds (as if you were blocking urine) and release for 6 second. Repeat this exercise 20 times and if you can do it several times during the day, it’s even better!
Extra Tip: Once you can easily do this, you can increase the level of difficulty by adding a sock or a small piece of fabric on your penis.
4. Discover New Positions
Whether you are into new sexual adventures or prefer less “risqué” sex, sometimes changing positions can help you delay ejaculation.
Firstly, after foreplay, avoid the missionary position. Indeed, it’s a practical position but it creates pressure on the abdomen which in return, facilitates ejaculation. Therefore, avoid it if you want to extend the period of pure shared pleasure.
Furthermore, when possible, avoid all positions creating pressure on the abdomen. Instead, ask your partner to go on you or similar positions.
Otherwise, there are many different positions to extend and improve sexual intercourse. For instance, you can look at the Kama Sutra or Taoist sexual practices for more inspiration. Just type one of those on a search engine for more information.
If these methods don’t bring you satisfying results, I strongly advice to book an appointment to your GP and/or sexologist.
