Our expert says:
Premature ejaculation, or an inability to delay ejaculate is one of the most common sexual dysfunctions described by men. It is important to know that the average time for a man to ejaculate once there has been vaginal penetration is 2 minutes. It is possible to learn to try to delay this. The best way to learn this would be through masturbation where you learns to identify your physical signs (e.g. heightening sensation, a sensation in your testicles, heart rate) that you needs to ease off before ejaculation is inevitable (i.e. when the 'twitching' begins, it's probably too late). One way to help with this would be to try scoring your arousal on a scale of 0-10, with 8 being the point at which there's no turning back. You must aim to practice your slowing techniques when you reach about 6/10. Slowing techniques could be slowing or changing the rhythm of the friction, trying to take some deep and slow breaths, and try tensing your pelvic floor muscles as if you're trying to stop the flow of urine. Once your arousal has reduced somewhat (e.g. to about 4/10), you can resume stimulation and repeat this process several times before allowing ejaculation to take place.
It's really important that these are 'exercises' though, and not 'sexual acts' as normal, otherwise you will feel more pressure to perform and you will be frustrated - neither of these will help your learning.
