Premature ejaculation is a sometimes chronic condition where a man ejaculates earlier than he’d like during sex. Some doctors are able to diagnose the condition easily while others think that any man who lasts more than a minute isn’t suffering from the condition. While the finer details of diagnosing the condition remain somewhat muddied, one thing is for certain – it’s a condition nearly every man in the world has experienced at one time or another.
Considering how common early ejaculation is, it’s surprising to learn how little most men know about the condition. Some think it’s nothing more than a bit of bad luck while others believe it automatically means something more serious is wrong. The truth lies somewhere in the middle of these extremes. It’s true that premature ejaculation can strike anyone, at any time and for almost any reason. Many men experience one or two sporadic episodes and nothing more. Others, however, find the condition becomes chronic. When this happens, there is usually some sort of underlying cause. There are some physical ailments which can trigger it, but more often than not the culprit is something more akin to poor health habits or large amounts of stress.
The prescription for a cure often involves lifestyle changes and therapies which take time to get accustomed to and take effect. In the meantime, the condition can make it hard for men to enjoy sex which adds to their stress and feeds right back into the cycle that created the problem in the first place. But these four simple techniques can help break that cycle once and for all, improving a man’s chance of successful treatment.
- Cock Rings – Cock rings are pretty much exactly what they sound like – rings that fit snugly at the base of the penis. These rings fit snugly in order to prevent blood for escaping the penis once an erection is achieved. This helps to boost stamina and is also an effective method for the treatment of acute impotence.
- Masturbation – Using masturbation as a form of sex therapy lets men learn more about the cues their body gives as he builds toward orgasm. By masturbating slowly men can pick up on these cues and learn how to back off by changing rhythm or pace to help increase their staying power.
- Variety – Changing positions often is another effective way to prevent premature ejaculation. Stopping to change positions prevents overstimulation and is especially effective with milder forms of the condition.
- Abstinence – Of course, there’s always the option to just forget it … in a way. Some couples who have responded well to other forms of sex therapy report that when a man simply takes his needs off the table for a night and focuses solely on his partner, the results can be just as satisfying as sex itself. To be frank, this involves a man being willing to let himself get turned on and driven to the brink, and being willing to do nothing about it while his attentions are focused solely on his partner. If this scenario strikes you as a bit S&M, you’re right. But it’s not just guys who like being dominated who respond well to this form of sexual therapy. In many cases, men who are used to being in charge and who deal with heavy responsibility day in and day out enjoy the release this type if sex play brings.
These simple, non-drug treatment can help in the long-term treatment of premature ejaculation, but none of them can cure it completely. Chronic problems with early ejaculation are usually a sign of a larger problem, whether it’s a physical issue or problems in how men deal with stress, anxiety or other mental pressure. While medical treatments that help to resolve the underlying issue can take time, these methods can help alleviate the symptoms and allow men – and their partners – to continue to enjoy sex while treatment is underway.
