Preventing Premature Ejaculation

Reaching an orgasm is indeed the climactic point of a sexual experience. Unfortunately, when a man reaches orgasm too soon before his partner, sex can become frustrating for both partners. Premature ejaculation (PE) is a common problem and affects almost a third of all men. And while premature ejaculation may be viewed as a failure on the man's part, the good news is that it is treatable and preventable.

Preventing premature ejaculation may not be instant and automatic. However, with practice, these techniques can help you prevent premature ejaculation and make sex last longer, becoming more enjoyable for both you and your partner.


Sex is 99 percent mental. When you masturbate, you fantasize about having real sex or look at pornographic images, right? Sex is mostly visual stimulation for the man. So when you are getting close to orgasm, distract yourself with other thoughts.

Take a deep breath and think about other things completely unrelated to sex. It might be imagining a baseball game, or ice cream, or even working on your wood saw in the garage. Do this when you masturbate and during intercourse with your sex partner, and it could help you become less aroused and make sex last longer.

Anesthetic Creams

Another method of preventing premature ejaculation is using a topical anesthetic cream on the penis. These types of creams must be obtained through a prescription from your physician, so be sure to talk to your doctor about your premature ejaculation and get his or her permission. The anesthetics in the creams will help to desensitize the penis and be less optimized for overstimulation.

Use a Condom (or Two!)

Another way that may reduce the sensation on the penis is by using a thick condom. You might even try using two condoms. By doing so, you will help prolong the sexual act by reducing the amount of arousal to the penis.

Extended Foreplay

Sex isn't just about vaginal penetration and intercourse. Most of the sex act is performed before penetration. Learn to prolong foreplay with your partner. Kiss her, not just on the lips, but all over her body. Use your hands to stimulate her arousal areas. Perform oral sex on your partner. You may find that extended foreplay leads to pleasing your partner and eliminating the frustrating issues of premature ejaculation.

Sexual Techniques

The techniques you use during sex can help you prevent premature ejaculation and prolong the full sex act. Here are some tips:

  • Stop and Start – Whether oral, manual, or vaginal penetration, learn to stop thrusting before you reach orgasm. Stopping the stimulation and taking long breaths while the orgasm urge subsides will help prolong sex and prevent premature ejaculation.
  • Sex Positions – Try new sex positions that are less stimulating to the penis. Avoid the "missionary" position that creates more tension on the man's body. Instead, lie on your back and let the woman be on top. These types of relaxed positions can help reduce tension in the body and prevent premature ejaculation.

Indeed, there are solutions to premature ejaculation, and a longer sexual experience may be just around the corner for you and your lover.
