Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint. As many as 1 out of 3 men ejaculate sooner during intercourse then they or their partner would like, according to MayoClinic.com. If your partner wants to have better sexual endurance, you and your partner can try several different techniques and exercises that are sure to help him better than suggesting he think about baseball statistics.
With the woman on top, the man’s penis is less stimulated. When you are on top, you should go slowly to delay his ejaculation. The side-by-side position also works better for delaying ejaculation than having the man on top, according to Sex Info, a University of California at Santa Barbara website.
The start-stop technique is having the man stop what he is doing when he feels that he is about to ejaculate, according to Go Ask Alice, the Columbia University’s Health Services website. You can suggest that your partner first practice this technique when he masturbates, so that he will know the right moment to stop. When he is with you, he should stop intercourse until his arousal subsides. He can then begin again. Your partner will repeat this technique until you are both ready to end. Your partner can stimulate you during the times he is waiting to begin intercourse again. This process will give your partner greater control over his orgasm.
With the squeeze technique, you and your partner would have sexual activity as usual, but when he is ready to ejaculate, he will tell you, and you will squeeze the end of his penis where the head meets the shaft, according to MayoClinic.com. You will maintain the squeeze for a few seconds, until your partner tells you that he no longer has the urge to ejaculate. Wait about 30 seconds before resuming what you were doing. You can repeat the squeeze technique as many times as necessary.
Kegel exercises can help men gain control over their ejaculations, according to the Men’s Health website. A man can find his Kegel muscle by starting and stopping the flow of urine repeatedly. The Kegel muscle is what allows him to do this. When he is not urinating, tell him that he can exercise this muscle any time during the day. He would simply tighten and hold it for a count of 10 and release.
Topical creams that contain lidocaine or prolocaine will dull the sensation on the penis, which can help delay ejaculation. Your partner can apply the cream a short time before intercourse. He will need to wipe it off just before intercourse; otherwise, it could dull your sensation and pleasure, according to MayoClinic.com.
