Do I have premature ejaculation?
PE refers to early ejaculation that happens upon penetration, and it is a common problem especially for Asian men.
A health survey found that 1 in 3 Asian men suffer from PE. 80% of respondents reported that PE was affecting their relationships negatively. And this applied to both men and women alike.
Most men who suffer from PE have all 3 of the following:
(1) ejaculation in less than 2 minutes of penetration;
(2) inability to delay ejaculation during intercourse; and
(3) psychological distress and/or avoidance of sexual intimacy.
The International Society for Sexual Medicine recognizes PE as a medical condition. Hence, there are medical treatments available, such as the FDA-approved Priligy (aka Dapoxetine).
Thankfully, there are some proven methods that don’t involve popping pills.
Training to be soldiers
Remember this army chant? It serves as a reminder to every Singapore men that to become stronger and serve the country, we have to endure the training and exercise.
But when it comes to serving your partner, do you know you can also train your orgasms too?
The tricks that we are about to mention here helps to improve ejaculation timing by addressing the physical and psychological factors that can causes PE.
The Squeeze and The Hold
The “Squeeze and Hold” technique has been shown to be one of the most effective ways of improving PE.
With this method alone, 60-90% across various studies have reported an improvement in the tolerance time from penetration to ejaculation.
How to do the Squeeze and Hold:
- First, bring yourself close to orgasm.
- Just when the urge to climax reaches its peak – Stop. Gently , but firmly, squeeze the head of your penis (glans) between your thumb and your index finger. This will cause the sensation to slowly diminish.
- And when you are relaxed, start again.
Just like a gym workout, your aim is to increase your reps. But not all at one go.
Start off with only holding it once, before letting yourself finish the next round. Slowly, you can increase the number of repetitions.
You could even explore getting your partner to help you. More importantly, don’t rush it, and you will get there.
Work out those pelvic muscles
The “Squeeze and Hold” help to delay the sensitivity to ejaculate early. Meanwhile, strengthening your pelvic floor muscles helps to build tolerance.
This can be achieved by performing regular pelvic floor exercises (aka Kegel exercises).
To perform pelvic floor exercises:
- Identify your pelvic floor muscles – It is the muscle that holds you from urinating or when you clench your buttock.
- Tighten the muscles for three seconds
- Relax them for three seconds
- Repeat 10 reps, 3 times a day
It’s that simple! You can do it anywhere – while you’re sitting, lying, or even standing.
But be patient. Similar to the “squeeze and hold” technique, these exercises take time to strengthen your muscles and build up your stamina.
Think of dead bunnies
Well, not exactly something that unpleasant, but you get the jizz (pun intended).
The male orgasm is a complex process. It involves a cascade of “love” hormones firing in your brain that brings you to the light.
So by tricking your mind, you can dampen these chemical triggers during sex.
Try focusing on things that you find less appealing. The idea is that you want to distract yourself from the urge to climax.
But be warned. Sex is about making a connection with your partner. So if your thoughts are drifting off too far, your partner might sense it and lose interest too.
Communication is key
Share with your partner that you are struggling with PE. On most occasions, they will want to help.
Let them know that you want to celebrate and enjoy a longer connection during love making. And that you want to find ways to prolong your passion.
Talk to her (or him) about what works and what doesn’t.
Maybe you find a certain position more enjoyable. Or going slower helps you to pace your sensitivity.
Ultimately, it takes two hands to clap. So why not get your partner involved too.
Sleep well, live well, eat well
One of the key theories of premature ejaculation is linked to the neurochemical called Serotonin.
Serotonin is a key hormone in our brain that is responsible for regulating our mood and wellness. Research has suggested that men with high levels of serotonin tend to have delayed climax.
Adopting a healthy lifestyle is a natural way of increasing this “feel good” hormone.
Men who exercise regularly, have more regular sleep, as well as a more balanced diet tend to have higher levels of serotonin.
A good place to start would be to get more sleep – ie. as close to 7 hours a night. It is a free way to boost your serotonin. In fact, sleep has also been shown to give you better erections too.
Tried everything? Maybe you need Priligy.
If changing your lifestyle or doing these exercises does not increase your tolerance, that’s when you consider medications.
The most common medication for PE that is available in Singapore is Priligy.
Priligy is an oral tablet that you can take on-demand before sex. It works by increasing your serotonin levels.
However, Priligy is a prescription grade medication, so you would need to get a trusted doctor’s help.
