Just like erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation (PE) can severely affect your sexual health. But there’s good news: If you do premature ejaculation exercises to delay ejaculation regularly, you’ll have better control during intercourse.
Here now are some exercises for delayed ejaculation. While these ejaculatory control exercises and techniques aren’t lifelong treatments, they may help to delay orgasm so that you and your partner can make love multiple times a day for longer.
Kegel Exercise for Premature Ejaculation
Doing a kegel exercise for premature ejaculation will help strengthen the ischiocavernosus and bulbocavernosus muscles which are located in the pelvic floor muscle area. These are found around the penis and are active when it becomes aroused.
These are the best sexual exercises for premature ejaculation. Consider doing pelvic floor exercises first before looking for another treatment. Kegel exercises are easy and won’t require specialized equipment.
Here now are exercises that target the tight pelvic floor muscles that can prevent premature ejaculation.
Back Squeeze Method
Lie on the floor with your hands flat with knees bent and pointing upward. Draw your penis inward toward your body and hold for five seconds before releasing. Next, squeeze your anus muscles and hold for five seconds before releasing. Make sure your pelvic floor muscles are engaged.
Side Squeeze Method
Lie on the floor on your side. Insert a pillow between your legs to help spread your legs apart. Squeeze your legs together and hold for five seconds before release.
Chair Squeeze Method
Sit on a chair and get comfortable. Squeeze your penis like you’re stopping urine flow from coming out. Hold it for five seconds.
Do any of these therapeutic exercises in three to five sets with eight to ten repetitions per set. Regularly doing these exercises will help delay ejaculation.
If you feel any pain while performing these exercises, consult your doctor immediately.
What If These Exercises for Premature Ejaculation and Erectile Dysfunction Don’t Work?
In case none of these pelvic floor exercises for premature ejaculation don’t work, you still have other options.
If you feel like you’re about to ejaculate while in the middle of sexual activity, the pause-squeeze technique may help. This involves squeezing the head of your penis for several seconds until the sensation to cum passes. You can also ask your partner to do it for you if that’s your preference. The squeeze technique will help with ejaculation control.
Stop and Start Technique
The idea here is to delay ejaculation through practice. You’ll need to masturbate up to the point of orgasm. But before you reach completion, stop immediately. Let yourself relax and do it again right until the end.
Do this several times a week. Ejaculatory control exercises like this one teach you to control your orgasm during sex.
When there’s too much physical stimulation, a male can get overly excited, resulting in premature ejaculation. One of the best exercises for delayed ejaculation is learning when to pause sex.
During sex, learn how to take a breather. It’s generally advised that you and your partner can shift to foreplay during sex.
Condoms are not only good as a contraceptive, but it’s also good for reducing sensation for a male. This means you’ll avoid premature ejaculation while keeping your partner safe from sexual diseases and possible pregnancy.
Change Sexual Positions
Find a sexual position that puts pressure on your penis. A good technique is to do it while in the spooning position. This position is known to prevent a male from ejaculating too quickly. An alternative would be to lie on your back and have your partner be on top.
Alternatives to Exercises for Delayed Ejaculation
If you want to avoid resorting to exercises and sex techniques, you can look into medical treatments.
For example, some topical creams and sprays contain anesthetics that you can apply to numb the penis. However, this requires pre-planning since you need to apply topical creams 30 minutes before sex and wash the penis five minutes before your sexual encounter.
You can also look into taking supplements. There’s research that says men with infertility have reduced quantities of zinc in the seminal fluid. Taking zinc supplements will increase libido in a male person which improves sexual dysfunction — which is good for you if you don’t want to ejaculate quickly.
Another research links magnesium with premature ejaculation. It states that having a low magnesium level contributes to premature orgasms for a male. This data suggests that getting enough magnesium in your diet may help to treat your problems.
You can also talk to a doctor about taking a medical drug to delay your orgasm. Some premature ejaculation medical patients enjoy longer and better sexual encounters when they’re on medicine for:
- Antidepressants (Lexapro, Zoloft, et al)
- Analgesics (Ultram, et al)
- Phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors (Viagra, Cialis, et al)
Before taking any of the medicine mentioned above, you’ll want to talk to a health professional as some antidepressant medications can cause side effects. A doctor might want to review your case to see if you’re qualified to undergo treatment. You wouldn’t want to risk your health, after all.
