Premature Ejaculation
How to Make Sex Last Longer

Premature ejaculation (PE) is experienced when a man ejaculates too soon with minimal if any stimulation to his penis. It is also known as premature climax, early ejaculation, rapid climax and rapid ejaculation.

Typically premature ejaculation is considered within a minute of sexual contact or stimulation, but there is not an exact amount of time and many consider anything under a few minutes to be rapid. With average ejaculation taking 4-8 minutes anything under can be classified as premature.

Treatment Options

Men who experience premature ejaculation indicate that they are not able to control it. Research has shown that in cases where men who experience chronic premature ejaculation have faster neurological responses in their pelvic muscles which may be a contributing factor. Other theories include increased penile sensitivity, intensified nerve conduction and sensitive serotonin receptors.

Ejaculation is started by the emission phase which is the release of semen into the back of the urethra (where urine comes out). Once it is positioned and ready to go it goes into the expulsion phase which is when the urethra begins to contract and release the semen. When an individual experiences premature ejaculation on a inconsistent basis, they are easily treated through training such as behavior modification and education in regard to control.

However, if the premature ejaculation is chronic and shorter than 1.5 minutes every time men can discuss medication options along with therapy with their physician. As premature ejaculation may be caused by prostatitis or by a medication side effect it is important to review this with your doctor. Drugs that work well in treating chronic premature ejaculation are those that increase serotonin and signal the brain to slow ejaculation. These are known as serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Typically, these drugs can delay ejaculation up to 20 times longer than previously experienced.

How to Have Longer Sex

Most men first attempt to treat premature ejaculation themselves by simply mentally distracting themselves during sexual activity. In addition, some men find that thrusting more slowly or pausing during sexual activity helps them to maintain their erection. In addition, some men have found it beneficial to ejaculate before they have sex allowing for sometime to build to an erection again. The second time seems to help them last longer.

The most common technique is the stop and start technique which was developed by Masters and Johnson and is also known as the squeeze technique. When men feel they are about to ejaculate, they can squeeze the head of the penis between their fingers which may help them to last longer. In addition to this technique, men can use deep breathing exercises (commonly used in Tantra) as well as strengthening their PC (pubococcygeus) muscle. Also see ebook on Tantric Male Orgasm.

Sexual Products to Help Make Sex Last Longer

  • Masturbation Sleeves: Using a masturbation sleeve for practice can also be effective. There are a few masturbation sleeves that are designed for training a man to have longer sex. See related masturbation sleeves.

  • Penis Rings / Cockrings: In addition, some men find that using a penis ring that has a 2nd ring on it helps with premature ejaculation. The reason these can be effective is because the 2nd ring holds the testicles away from the body. When a man ejaculates the testicles pull up into the body, whereas when they are held away from the body it can help to delay ejaculation allowing for longer sex. See related penis rings.

  • Penis Sleeves / Extenders: A penis sleeve / extender is a sexual product that slides over the penis and covers it keeping it from being over stimulated during sexual activity. These also can make a man's penis feel larger. See related penis extenders.

  • Desensitizers: Using a spray or cream to help numb the penis can also be an effective tool. However, we recommend using a condom when you use such products to prevent rubbing the cream onto your partner and numbing them as well. We also only recommended limited sprays due to the health risks of some that are on the market. See our recommended Desensitizers.

With these resources, patience and practice, ejaculatory control should be within your grasp.
