What Is Premature Ejaculation (PE)?
Premature ejaculation is the rapid ejaculation that happens following sexual stimulation when the man and his partner do not desire it yet.(2) This ejaculation is uncontrolled and generally takes brief time, i.e. often less than a minute to occur.(2) It causes sexual dissatisfaction, frustration and distress in men and their partners. There are many costly medical treatments and drugs available to treat Premature Ejaculation. However, the good news is that premature ejaculation can also be treated naturally.
A study conducted on over 1500 men showed that the average time between penetration and ejaculation for a premature ejaculator was 1.8 minutes as compared to 7.3 minutes for non-premature ejaculators. Another study, performed on 500 couples across 5 countries, to measure the time from penetration to ejaculation showed that the time to ejaculation ranged from 33 seconds to 44 minutes with the median being 5.4 minutes.
List of 5 Ways to Overcome Premature Ejaculation Naturally
Pelvic Floor Muscle Training(5)
One of the most effective ways of preventing the occurrence of premature ejaculation is by strengthening the pelvic muscles. The pelvic muscles support and help to control the penis and have the ability to defuse premature ejaculation when they are actively engaged right before ejaculation is allowed to happen. For most males, these muscles are weak and tend to weaken further with age, thus increasing the chances of premature ejaculation. Studies have found that pelvic muscle exercises are more effective than medication in treating and overcoming premature ejaculation.
In this technique, one needs to slow their pace of pelvic thrusting and vary the angle and depth of penetration right before becoming ready to ejaculate. When done together with the engagement of pelvic muscles, this approach or way becomes extremely effective for overcoming the problem of premature ejaculation.
The Pause-Start Method(7,8)
If one cannot prevent premature ejaculation sufficiently just by slowing the tempo, they may need to stop thrusting totally while maintaining penetration for allowing the ejaculatory urgency to fade away. Once the sensation for ejaculating subsides, pelvic thrusting can be resumed. Again, engaging the pelvic muscles, when thrusting is stopped, can help to greatly reduce the sensation and prevent Premature Ejaculation.
The Squeeze Technique(9,10)
This imminent ejaculation technique is devised by Masters and Johnson (9, 10). Squeeze technique requires the penis to be withdrawn and the head of the penis to be squeezed until the feeling of ejaculation fades away, after which intercourse can be resumed. In spite of being effective in overcoming premature ejaculation, this technique is cumbersome, requires sexual interruption and demands an extremely cooperative partner.
Talk To An Expert(6,11)
Because premature ejaculation can have psychological origins, consulting a sexual therapist can prove extremely helpful in dealing and overcoming this problem. One should not feel shy or embarrassed in talking about their sexual health and be open about the fears and concerns. Talking about your problem is also one of the best ways to overcome premature ejaculation.
By using the above mentioned techniques, one can overcome the problem of premature ejaculation without the use of medication or expensive medical treatment.
