Premature ejaculation is often a cause of worry. Matters get murkier with this problem because it is not a subject people like to talk about freely. Have you ever known a man who is willing to acknowledge ejaculating early to people around him? In all likelihood, you don’t. But this isn’t because premature ejaculation is uncommon. In fact, it is one of the most common clinical sexual complaints. According to a study, in the adult age group, approximately 30 percent of men complain of poor ejaculatory control. And think of those who never make it to a doctor, due to either lack of awareness or sheer inhibition.
Tips by NHS
TIPS BY NHS: Premature ejaculation is sure a condition that needs medical supervision. But where do you draw the line? How do you know if you are ejaculating too early? A satisfactory time frame can be very subjective and can differ from couple to couple. However, if you feel that you and your partner would like you to last longer, there are certain tips you can try at home. These are recommended by NHS and work in most cases. However, if you feel that your situation is worse and you are ejaculating a little too early, let’s say within a minute or two of the activity, you may need medical supervision.
2. Use a thicker condom
USE A THICKER CONDOM: If you think you are getting too excited too soon, ask yourself if you are using a thin condom, that is, if you are using one at all. What you can do instead is go for a thicker option. This will reduce your sensation, making you take longer to ejaculate.
3. Take deep breaths
TAKE DEEP BREATHS: NHS says, “Take a deep breath to briefly shut down the ejaculatory reflex (an automatic reflex of the body during which ejaculation occurs).” This will eventually delay the process.
4. Do positions that decrease your sensitivity
DO POSITIONS THAT DECREASE YOUR SENSITIVITY: NHS recommends doing your partner on top. You can actually pick any position in which you feel you are less sensitive while your partner can have his or her time.
5. Try some mental diversion
TRY SOME MENTAL DIVERSION: To keep yourself from ejaculating too early, you can take mental breaks from the activity and think of unexciting things that may calm your sexual impulse. These could be thoughts about your work, your grandparents, or anything non-sexual in nature.
6. Try these techniques during sex
TRY THESE TECHNIQUES DURING SEX: There are also two techniques that NHS recommends for couples facing the problem of premature ejaculation. They are – squeezed and stop-go. In squeeze, your partner masturbates you but stops when you are about to ejaculate and instead, squeezes the head of your penis. In stop-go, your partner stops after masturbating but does not squeeze. You both simply delay the process and get back at it when you are confident again.
