Premature ejaculation can potentially be avoided by following a few tips and tricks to help or prevent premature ejaculation during sexual intercourse.
It can help to do one or all of the following things before you engage or during sexual intercourse:
- Engage in the Stop and Start exercise with your partner. Stimulate your penis until you feel like you are going to have an orgasm, and then stop the arousal for approximately 30 seconds until the feeling passes. Start the stimulation again and repeat three or four more times before allowing yourself to ejaculate.
- By yourself or with your partner use The Squeeze Technique. This is similar to the Stop and Start technique, but instead of stopping when you feel like you are reaching orgasm, you or your partner must squeeze the head of your penis until you lose the erection. Repeat this process three or four times before allowing yourself to ejaculate.
- Masturbate an hour or two before having sex. Stimulation of the penis and orgasm before engaging in sexual intercourse can help you to avoid premature ejaculation.
- Have your partner pull away and disengage from sexual intercourse and return to foreplay when you feel as though you are going to ejaculate, giving yourself time to recover.
- Use a thick condom during sexual intercourse to decrease the sensation on your penis when you are engaging in sexual activities. Less stimulation of the penis will result in a delayed orgasm and therefore allow you to ejaculate later on in the intercourse process.
- During sexual intercourse, force yourself to take mental breaks and imagine something that you find incredibly boring, lowering your arousal levels and thereby increasing the time it will take to reach ejaculation.
