Premature ejaculation: are you a one-minute man?

Premature ejaculation is no laughing matter and, if you didn’t know, it can be a real, um, blow to the male ego. It has also been the ruin of many a relationship.

So, you meet a really sexy person, the conversation heats up, and you know you’re going to check into the Get Your Groove On Motel by the end of the night. And while motel rates are R100 an hour, you wish they were offered by the minute… because a minute is all you’ll need.

Premature ejaculation is no laughing matter and, if you didn’t know, it can be a real, um, blow to the male ego. It has also been the ruin of many a relationship.

But it doesn’t have to be.

Experts believe that premature ejaculation, early in a relationship, is usually caused by too much stimulation or anxiety about performance. However, guilt and other psychological factors have also been cited as contributing factors.

But you’ll be pleased to know that the condition usually improves without treatment.

Here are some tips on how to point without shooting to soon:

The chicken-choker

Masturbate more. And learn to relax while you’re doing it. Guys often associate masturbation with a quick release, but regular and prolonged wanking, choking the chicken or shaking hands with the mayor can help you get over your early ejaculation.

The stop-start

Stimulate yourself until you near orgasm, then stop for about 30 seconds and start again. Repeat until you can’t control the urge to ejaculate.

The big squeeze

Sexually stimulate yourself until you’re about to ejaculate. Now, gently squeeze the end of your penis (where the head meets the shaft) for several seconds. Halt stimulation for about 30 seconds and then start again. Repeat this pattern until you want to ejaculate.

The game-changer

Change you sex positions. The missionary (man on top) has been most linked to early ejaculation because muscular tension is increased as you support your weight with your arms and core strength. Try having your partner on top, or opt for doggy-style or side-to-side.

REMEMBER: Talking about your premature ejaculation condition with your partner is the first step to recovery. The recommended steps are always more fun if you ask your partner to help you with it.
