How to overcome premature ejaculation

Love to make love and want more of it when you get it? If you find yourself climaxing just as the party gets started, here are some tips that will have you going stronger for longer.

 

DO

Exercise

Exercise improves blood flow in general, and that includes to the genital region! Certain yoga asanas like the cobra pose can help, as can pelvic floor exercises, or “Kegels”.

 

Pay attention to your body

One of the most common ways to keep yourself from ejaculating too soon is to monitor your excitement, and then, before you orgasm, stop all stimulation until you’ve got yourself under control again. Practising this technique helps you gain some control over your orgasm response.

 

Fancy a squeeze

When you’re about to orgasm, stop and squeeze right below the head of your penis. Apply firm pressure on the tube running underneath your penis. This will push blood out of the penis and momentarily decreases sexual tension, calming your ejaculatory response.

 

Distract yourself

If you find yourself getting too excited too soon, try distracting yourself by thinking of something unrelated to sex. Temporarily diverting your attention can help you to relax and last longer. You could also pull out and switch positions. Switching around your bodies gives you some time to regain vigour and also allows you to explore new positions.

 

DON’T

Skip foreplay

Studies have shown that those who partake in a little foreplay action before sex make love far longer than those who don't. Furthermore, when you help them to orgasm first, using whatever technique they most enjoy, you’ll feel a lot less pressure to last long yourself.

 

Forget to wear a condom

Condoms tend to decrease pleasure and sensitivity during sex, but that may be a good thing if you’re trying to last longer! Many manufacturers make extra-thick condoms that serve well as desensitisers.

 

Stress yourself out

Premature ejaculation is often as much mental as it is physical. So relax, be positive, and approach sex with confidence and self-respect. Fear and self-doubt may create a self-fulfilling prophecy. The less stressed you are, the more control you will gain over how long you last.

 

Forget to practise with yourself

Masturbation is a great way to familiarise yourself with your body, allowing you to recognise when you’re getting too excited and need to slow down before it’s too late..
