In the bedroom, timing is important. If you have an orgasm too soon, it can leave you and your partner unsatisfied and feeling frustrated. Fortunately, there are ways to last longer during intercourse. Premature ejaculation is not the same as erectile problems.
Here are five strategies to prevent premature ejaculation:
The ‘Squeeze’ Method
The squeeze method entails physically controlling ejaculation by squeezing the tip of your penis and holding for up to 30 seconds. You can then continue with sexual activity, repeating the process until you achieve ejaculation.
Pelvic Muscle Exercises
The pelvic muscles support the penis and are instrumental in controlling premature ejaculation. These muscles tend to get weaker with age or injuries.
Strengthening these muscles is a great way to prevent premature ejaculation and lengthen sexual intercourse sessions. Some of the best pelvic exercises for this condition include Kegels, squats, and barbell hip thrusts.
Anesthetic creams with ingredients like prilocaine or lidocaine can help to prevent premature ejaculation by numbing the area and reducing sensation to help you maintain erections longer.
Creams are applied fifteen minutes before sex for maximum effect. Topical creams should be used sparingly as they have several side effects include reduced sensation and decreased libido.
Zinc is essential to the production of sex hormones and plays a role in the control of premature ejaculation. It aids in the development of the testes and in increasing sperm count.
Combined with folic acid and golden root, it can help to control ejaculations. Foods rich in zinc include red meat, shellfish, whole grains, eggs, and dairy.
Stimulating the Entire Body
Whole-body stimulation has often been the preserve of women and it helps them to orgasm later while enjoying sexual intercourse more. Conversely, most men concentrate on the genital area, which makes them ejaculate faster.
To prevent this issue, men can ask their partner to stimulate their whole body and leave penis stimulation until the last minute. Doing so allows men to decentralize pleasure and ensure they achieve long-lasting erections.
Using these strategies can help you last longer in the bedroom. However, if you are still experiencing sexual difficulty, talk to your doctor. From there, they may turn to other treatment options such as medication or counseling.
