The most common sexual problem in men is premature ejaculation, rapid ejaculation, premature climax, early ejaculation, or by the Latin term ejaculatio praecox. A person is said to suffers from premature ejaculation if he ejaculates before his partner achieves orgasm in more than fifty percent of his sexual encounters. Premature ejaculation affects 25%-40% of men. Premature ejaculation is characterized by a lack of voluntary control over ejaculation.
Sex researchers have defined premature ejaculation as occurring if the man ejaculates within two minutes or less of penetration. The definition, however, is not that straightforward. Once thought to be purely psychological, experts now know that biological factors also play an important role in premature ejaculation and that in some men; premature ejaculation is also related to erectile dysfunction. A survey conducted by Doctor Alfred Kinsey in the 1950s demonstrated that three quarters of men ejaculated within two minutes of penetration in over half of their sexual encounters. The good news is that premature ejaculation cures are available everywhere you look, but making an informed decision is the most important thing when choosing a method for premature ejaculation. Today, most sex therapists understand premature ejaculation as occurring when a lack of ejaculatory control interferes with sexual or emotional well-being in one or both partners.
A very simple way to delay Premature Ejaculation is the squeeze technique. The squeeze technique involves halting stimulation just before orgasm. You or your partner places a thumb on the frenulum (the connecting skin at the tip and right under the head of the penis) and applies pressure to the head of the penis with the other fingers. Hold the squeeze until the urge to ejaculate subsides. Then you can go on having sex and repeat the process until you actually want to ejaculate.
Most of the men suffering from premature ejaculation will greatly benefit from reducing the stimulation they experience during sex and there are already a number of creams available on the market to help reducing premature ejaculation. These creams can partially anesthetize the penis and reduce the stimulation that leads to orgasm. Another option is to use one or more condoms. However, these techniques may interfere with the pleasure experienced during sex and so defeat the purpose of this technique.
The stop technique for premature ejaculation is very similar to the squeeze technique because it involves reaching the point of orgasm and then halting the whole thing. The stop technique requires only that stimulation stop. Stop technique for premature ejaculation does not need applying of pressure to any part of penis. After the stimulation has stopped and the urge to orgasm fades, resume sex and repeat the process. But these techniques takes a good control and concentration to hold back premature ejaculation.
Another thing you can try is erectile dysfunction exercises. Most men overlook this muscle and never bother to keep it in shape, yet by learning to control it, you can rid yourself of premature ejaculation and learn to ejaculate when and only when you want to. These exercises are meant to train your pubococcygeus muscle, which is the very muscle that controls ejaculation and urination.
The bottom line that the best way to cure premature ejaculation is the one that works for you. See a therapist, try nutritional supplements or try exercises to gain more control. Aside from being the most frequent male sexual disorder, premature ejaculation is also the most likely to be treated in a relatively short period of time and with very little inconvenience to you or your partner.
