Ejaculation is the expulsion of semen from the body. Premature ejaculation (PE) is when ejaculation happens sooner than a man or his partner would like during sex. PE is also known as rapid ejaculation, premature climax or early ejaculation. It starts concerning when it makes sex less enjoyable and has an impact on relationships. It’s a common problem, affecting 30% to 40% of men.
Ejaculation is controlled by the central nervous system. When men are sexually stimulated, signals are sent to your spinal cord and brain. When men reach a certain level of excitement, signals are then sent from your brain to your reproductive organs. This causes semen to be ejected through the penis (ejaculation).
Causes of Early ejaculation –
- unrealistic expectations about sexual performance
- history of sexual repression
- lack of confidence
- relationship problems
- Excessive masturbation habits
With early ejaculation, it may feel you lose some of the closeness shared with a sexual partner. You might feel angry, ashamed or upset, and turn away from your partner. Premature ejaculation may not only affect you, it may also affect your partner. PE can cause partners to feel less connected or feel hurt.
Treatment- There is many different type of treatment available for early ejaculation which is Medicinal therapy, psychological therapy, Behavioral therapy etc.…. The treatment also includes the squeeze method and the stop start method etc.
Here are some tips to prevent Early ejaculation- “THE DO…”
1) Eat healthy
Studies have shown that those who are mostly vegetarian have more endurance and last much longer in bed than non-vegetarians. Particularly sex-friendly fruits include bananas, strawberries and amla.
Exercise improves blood flow to the genital region. Yoga asanas like the cobra pose can help, as can pelvic floor exercises, or “Kegels”.
3) Create connection to your body
One of the most common ways to keep yourself from ejaculating too soon is before you orgasm, stop all stimulation until you’ve got yourself under control again. Practicing this technique helps you gain some control over your orgasm response. If you’re about to cum, slow down. Slow way down, or stop altogether; give yourself a breather before starting again.
4) The squeeze method
When you’re about to orgasm, stop and squeeze right below the head of your penis. Apply firm pressure on the tube running underneath your penis. This will push blood out of the penis and momentarily decreases sexual tension, calming your ejaculatory response.
5) Use de-sensitizers
Applying a topical spray to your penis can lessen sensation and help you gain control of ejaculation. Get the amount of desensitization just right so that it won’t affect your partner.
6) Distract yourself
Temporarily diverting your attention can help you to relax and last longer. You could also pull out and switch positions. Switching around your bodies gives you some time to regain vigor and also allows you to explore new positions.
Don’ts to early ejaculation-
# Don’t Skip foreplay
Devoting more time to foreplay will not only extend your lovemaking sessions, but will add more excitement to the whole ordeal. And also, when you help them to orgasm first, using whatever technique they most enjoy, you’ll feel a lot less pressure to last long yourself.
# Don’t Forget to wear a condom
Condoms tend to decrease pleasure and sensitivity during sex, but that may be a good thing if you’re trying to last longer. Many manufacturers make extra-thick condoms that serve well as desensitizers, and also protects from STDs and unwanted pregnancy.
# Don’t Smoke or drink alcohol
Smoking lessens blood flow to the penis and can leave you limp, while alcohol consumption prior to sex is a common cause of erectile dysfunction.
# Don’t Stress yourself out
Premature ejaculation is often as much mental as it is physical. So relax, be positive, and approach sex with confidence and self-respect. The less stressed you are, the more control you will gain over how long you last.
# Don’t forget to practice with yourself
Masturbation is a great way to help build stamina and keep you from ejaculating too soon. It allows you to recognize when you’re getting too excited and need to slow down before it’s too late.
# Don’t Underestimate the power of love
Being in a loving, monogamous relationship, however, is a great way to boost your performance in bed, the close you feel to your partner the more comfortable and confident you will feel during sex.
Early ejaculation is considered a type of sexual dysfunction. Sexual dysfunction refers to any of several types of problems that keep a couple from fully enjoying sexual activity. There are psychological or emotional components to PE, but there are also other factors that contribute to it. This problem may seem frustrating but it is curable with combination of therapy, home strategies, or medication. The key is to understand that early ejaculation can usually be resolved and that it’s only one part of a couple’s physical relationship. Being supportive and understanding of each other’s needs and concerns is the best way to approach early ejaculation or any challenge you face as a couple.
