Squeeze Pause Method

Can a man and woman enjoy their sex life if the man consistently experiences premature ejaculation (PE)? This is a question and a major concern brought up by men and couples who have this problem. The fact is that almost one-third of all men in all age groups suffers from premature ejaculation. That means whether you are 18 or 78, you could experience premature ejaculation and have an undesirable sexual experience.

While there are so many men who are known to have this problem, there is no one singular cure to help all men achieve longer-lasting sex and delayed orgasm. Sure, those having trouble getting an erection have Viagra, but men who suffer from premature ejaculation do not have this simple solution.

However, there are a number of methods and remedies that can help a man cope with or even solve his premature ejaculation problem. There are prescription medications, which can come with unwanted side effects. There is also therapy or counseling, since it is believed that premature ejaculation is mostly a psychological condition.

There are also self-improvement techniques that may help a man be able to control and delay his orgasm and prolong the sexual experience with his partner.

The Squeeze Pause Method

One of those techniques is the squeeze-pause method. This technique is credited to Masters and Johnson, two of the most highly renowned sex therapists who made great strides in sex and sexual dysfunction research in the 1950s and 1960s. By utilizing this technique, a man and his partner can help to delay orgasm and ejaculation, and train the man's body to do so on its own.

Here's how it works.

  • First, the couple engages in sexual foreplay or direct stimulation of the penis. The key to successfully achieving the squeeze-pause method is to stop stimulation before ejaculation occurs.
  • Once an orgasm feels like it is impending, all stimulation to the penis stops. The man should either pull out of the woman's vagina or masturbation should cease.
  • The man or woman grips and squeezes the penis at the top of the shaft just below the head or glans of the penis. The best way is to squeeze between the thumb and forefinger/middle finger. Applying pressure here stops the ejaculation process and can help subside the feeling of impending orgasm. It is safe to squeeze. It does not hurt nor does it do any damage.
  • The male or woman continues to squeeze the penis for a few seconds, or even perhaps 30 seconds up to a minute, at least until the feeling of immediate ejaculation subsides.
  • This process is repeated each time the man feels that a climax is eminent. It can be repeated as often and frequently as desired by the couple in order to delay ejaculation and lengthen the total time that they engage in sexual activity.

Using this method, a couple can better understand and control when a man ejaculates. With continued practice, this can even help the man train his body to recognize impending climax and learn to delay ejaculation without the squeeze method.
