Premature ejaculation is the most common sexual problem facing men under 40. While it is important to understand the physical and emotional causes of premature ejaculation our men’s internal medicine specialists in Tempe can teach techniques known to slow or stop PE. Here are seven of the most effective tools:

  • Deep Breathing
    • This is a form of meditation that can sometimes help control the arousal and tension that lead to early ejaculation.
  • The Stop and Start Method
    • This is a solo exercise that starts with masturbation. The goal is to get close to orgasm and stopping. After relaxing, continuing this process will eventually lead to sustained intercourse.
  • The Squeeze Method
    • This method requires one of you to squeeze the base of the penis at the same point that the stop and start technique would be used. The idea is to reduce the erection through squeezing.
  • Kegel Exercises
    • There is no better method to strengthen the pelvic region than to create strong muscles which can control ejaculation. The easiest way to achieve this to stop the flow of urine repeatedly.
  • Tantric Techniques
    • Sex that is explorative is more than just physical pleasure. Using tantric techniques establishes an intimate connection. When orgasm is almost reached the point is to cease stimulation repeatedly until the desire to release is no longer urgent.
  • Condoms With Benzocaine
    • These condoms have a mild anesthetic with a slight numbing effect to decrease sexual sensation and bring the sexual response down to a manageable level.
  • Promescent
    • Just recently, a new medication was approved by the FDA. Promescent is a topical medication that is applied to the penis ten minutes before sex through desensitization. It absorbs below the skin allowing him to enjoy the sensations of sex while controlling ejaculation.
