Premature ejaculation has many definitions but, simply put, involves experiencing orgasm no more than two or three minutes into intercourse.
It affects up to 1/3 of all men at some point in their lives and has many causes.
Causes of Premature Ejaculation
Some of the factors that are thought to contribute to pre-mature ejaculation are:
- Masturbation (particularly in the teen years)
- Anxiety over sexual performance
- Prior issues with erection control
- Too little OR too much foreplay
No matter what the cause, premature ejaculation can usually be helped by employing a number of techniques.
Most of the exercises mentioned are designed to enable you to learn better penis control over time, leading to an improved ability to sustain erections for a longer period of time.
Tips and Techniques for controlling Premature Ejaculation
Reduce Stress and Anxiety
The first and most important thing you should do is conquer your anxiety. Learn as much about performance anxiety as you can.
Research the term and you will discover that many men have it.
Use meditation, sexual imagery (envisioning your sexual performance beforehand), therapy, or whatever it takes to lessen your fears.
While many men refuse to discuss anxiety and premature ejaculation issues with other men, it might help to take a friend into your confidence for a heart-to-heart discussion.
Talking about it and realizing that it is fairly common usually lessens anxiety about it.
Engage in muscle tension-decreasing activities
Perform activities such as yoga, working out, stretching, or anything else that works to decrease pelvic and abdominal tension. Muscle tension always increases the likelihood of premature ejaculation.
Relax with a massage before Sexual Intercourse
Get your partner to massage you before engaging in intercourse. Massages are very relaxing and should help you release performance anxiety and tension. If you are completely relaxed, you will be far less likely to ejaculate too soon.
Experiment with corrective techniques during Masturbation
Learn to control your ejaculations by experimenting during masturbation. Stimulate yourself to the point of orgasm and then stop. This technique is called the start-stop technique.
The idea is to use this technique in order to learn exactly when, during stimulation, you can’t stop the orgasm.
It may take you a few episodes to determine this but it will be well worth knowing.
Once you figure this out (and you will if you practice enough), you can use this knowledge to know when to stop and hold back on orgasm during sex.
Learn to use your PC muscles
If you have good control over your PC muscles (the ones used to stop urination), you can also use them to help you stop ejaculation. Doing this involves the same method employed when you need to stop urinating all of a sudden.
Practice using these muscles to help you stop ejaculating during the start-stop technique. The best practice for this is to clench the PC muscle for a few seconds and then release it. Do this in repetitions of ten at least two or three times daily. After a few weeks, you should notice significant results.
Other corrective techniques
Another technique you can employ to help with premature ejaculation also involves practicing during masturbation. Because men often race through masturbation (without taking the time needed to really enjoy it), they condition themselves to come to orgasm quickly, which can affect their performance during sexual intercourse.
Practice taking your time while masturbating.
Draw it out for as long as you can.
Start off by not using oils (which cause you to come quicker) or porn. Once you learn to lengthen those sessions, add some things to the mix, such as oil and/or porn.
Practice taking your time using these additions.
During these sessions, incorporate some of the other techniques you learned earlier, such as the stop-stop technique and/or using your PC muscles to stop orgasm.
