Now that we have medications to help deal with erectile dysfunction, researchers have come up with a way to help men with premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation can be embarrassing and frustrating, so if something can be done to help prevent it, why not, right?
The medical definition of premature ejaculation is “ejaculation occurring within approximately one minute of penetration that causes the patient distress.” The lucky thing is that it is usually a mental issue, not a physical one and there are some things men can do to help reduce the chances of it happening. These include stopping and starting, the “squeeze method” (either you are your partner firmly squeezes the tip of your penis for 10 to 20 seconds just before ejaculation), or even practice masturbation – to learn where your threshold is.
But, if you’re not able to control things on your own, numbing gels are a possibility. Japanese researchers are working on a spray that is made of numbing agents lidocaine and prilocaine. These are given to numb the skin before stitches are done or dental work is performed, for example.
According to this article, Spray can prevent premature ejaculation: study, early studies have been successful. Three hundred men in California tried the spray. Sixty percent found they changed from climaxing in less than a minute to lasting more than three minutes, after using the spray for three months.
An international study (U.S., Poland, Canada) that looked at 256 men had a similar finding, with climax time extended to 2.6 minutes.
