Avoid Premature Ejaculation

In some cases, sexual therapy may involve simple steps, such as masturbating an hour or two before intercourse so that you’re able to delay ejaculation during sex and avoid premature ejaculation.
The Squeeze Technique
Your doctor may instruct you and your partner in the use of a method called the squeeze technique.
This method works as follows:

  • Step 1. Begin sexual activity as usual, including stimulation of the penis, until you feel almost ready to ejaculate.
  • Step 2. Have your partner squeeze the end of your penis, at the point where the head (glans) joins the shaft, and maintain the squeeze for several seconds, until the urge to ejaculate passes.
  • Step 3. After the squeeze is released, wait for about 30 seconds, then go back to foreplay. You may notice that squeezing the penis causes it to become less erect, but when sexual stimulation is resumed, it soon regains full erection.
  • Step 4. If you again feel you’re about to ejaculate, have your partner repeat the squeeze process.

By practice you will see you can avoid premature ejaculation gradually.
