As many as one in five men experience difficulty with uncontrolled and early ejaculation at some point of time in their lives. It occurs when a man reaches orgasm and ejaculates too quickly, without any control.
Causes of Premature Ejaculation
- Hormonal imbalance
- Thyroid problems
- Inflammation and infection of urethra
- Abnormal reflex activity of the ejaculatory system
- Erectile dysfunction
Techniques To Treat Premature Ejaculation
Stop and Start Method
- Reach a state of sexual excitement through foreplay or while masturbating.
- As you approach climax, stop stimulation and take some deep relaxing breaths.
- Once you overcome the urge to climax, relax and repeat the process.
This training will help you recognize when your body is ready to reach orgasm and time your breathing and relaxation techniques. Continuous training will help you manage your ejaculation better over time.
These exercises target the key pelvic floor muscles. Best way to identify these muscles is while urinating. While being seated on a toilet seat, stop the urine flow for a few secs (around 10 secs.) and release. Repeat this several times which will exercise these intricate muscles. Use the same technique of squeezing these muscles when you feel you are approaching orgasm during intercourse or while masturbating.
A similar Yoga technique called Ashwini Mudra, which is done by contracting the anal sphincter muscles in a rhythmic manner, is also beneficial for strengthening pelvic floor muscles.
While nearing the point of orgasm squeeze the end of your penis, at the point where the head (glans) joins the shaft. Once the urge to ejaculate is gone, wait for 20 to 30 seconds, and then continue.
Sounds too simple to be true yet many men will vouch that this works best for them. Condoms can reduce sensitivity and delay the urge to ejaculate. Stay away from extra thin condoms and stick to a thicker grade condom. You can also try condoms coated with a slight numbing gel on the inside; this can help you put off ejaculation even longer (just make sure you know which side is where when you put it on).
Let go off your anxieties by trying deep breathing techniques. Inhale deeply for 5 seconds, hold it for about 3 seconds and then exhale for five seconds. Repeat this gradually from 2 minutes to 5 minutes. Connect more intimately with your partner by flowing with his/her breathing patterns and rhythms.
Most men end up focusing on intercourse more than the sexual pleasures that can be derived from a longer and more intimate foreplay. A longer foreplay help reduce dissatisfaction, frustration and performance-related anxiety. Enjoy the act and make it into a relaxing and pleasurable time together.
What most men don’t realize is that positions matter how quickly you can reach your orgasms. “Passive” positions like sleeping under your partner or spooning (sleeping side-by-side) put far lesser strain on your penis glans than “active” positions like missionary or rear-entry positions.
These help strengthen the pelvic and back muscles and increase blood circulation to the pelvic region.
