Being able to control how long you last is one of the keys to being a great lover. As a result, it should come as no surprise that most men wish they could last longer in bed. A recent poll by the editors at Men’s Health revealed that nearly 75% of men would like to last longer.
However, there’s a segment of that group of men who consistently are unable to satisfy their lovers. This segment – which is estimated to be 20% to 40% of all men – are classified as having what’s known as premature ejaculation (also known as “PE”). For these men, sex is not a pleasure, something you look forward to all day. Instead, a man with premature ejaculation becomes so nervous about his inability to perform that he will often dread sex or even seek to avoid it, in order to avoid the disappointment or embarrassment that results from a poor performance.
If you are having trouble lasting longer in bed, you may be wondering, “Is there a cure for premature ejaculation?” Well, wonder no more. This article provides a definitive answer to this question.
First, it’s important to understand all of your options. There are many products on the market that claim to cure PE: sprays, creams, pills, and the like. Sprays (such as the popular Stud 100 spray) work by desensitizing the penis, which dulls sensations from sex and allows you to last longer because don’t get as aroused. Creams work in much the same way. Many men find that these products do help with the physical aspects of premature ejaculation, by dulling the sensations. However, rather than a cure, these products are more of a “cover up” – they simply mask the symptoms of premature ejaculation. Another down side is that many men find sprays and creams to be embarrassing, because you have to apply the product right at the moment of (or before) intimacy.
There are also various types of pills on the market: supplements, prescription pharmaceuticals, and over-the-counter drugs. There are many herbal supplements for sale that claim to cure premature ejaculation. However, because they are not FDA approved, these supplements haven’t gone through the rigorous testing process that normal drugs do. Therefore, the effectiveness (and the potential side effects) of these supplements are largely unknown. On the pharmaceutical side, some men have found serotonin-reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) to help delay ejaculation, but these drugs have known negative side effects.
Taking pain relievers such as Tylenol or Advil prior to intercourse can help some men last longer, though there are harmful side effects with taking too many pain relievers as well (especially if you drink alcohol). The bottom line is this: if you have to continue taking the pills for the rest of your life, these pills aren’t really a “cure”- they’re merely a “cover-up,” just like sprays and creams.
If you’re seeking a cure, it’s important to understand that premature ejaculation is caused by a combination of deep mental as well as physical issues. As a result, a true premature ejaculation cure must directly address these mental and physical causes.
The most effective permanent cure doesn’t involve sprays, creams, or pills. It is a natural approach that consists of education and training to be able to withstand higher levels of stimulation without ejaculating. While this natural approach is not an immediate quick fix, most men do experience improvement within 24 to 72 hours. But more importantly, if you’re looking for a long-term cure, this type of natural education/training approach is the best way to permanently rid yourself of premature ejaculation.
