On an average, the normal time to ejaculate after penetrating the vagina of your female partner is 9 minutes but some men ejaculate very shortly i.e. within 2 minutes or even less of vaginal penetration. This condition is medically termed as “premature ejaculation”. Around the globe, about 20-30% men suffer from this sexual dysfunction due to which they become depressive and lose confidence, as they are unable to provide maximum pleasure and satisfaction to their partners.
There can be so many reasons that may present with premature ejaculation in men such as, side effect of a prescription drug, hormonal imbalance or sexual anxiety! You are also more likely to experience premature ejaculation if you are having sex with someone new or in an unusual sexual circumstances.
Penis is a very sensitive organ. For more pleasurable sex and delayed climax, certain products can be used that may enhance your sexual stamina and increases the “lag time” by reducing the sensitivity of penis. Male desensitizer is one such product.
Male desensitizer is a spray that contains a mild anesthetic agent which upon application reduces the sensitivity of penis. When penis is less sensitive, ejaculation will be delayed and couple can enjoy sex for a longer period of time. These sprays are also known as climax delay sprays. Male desensitizers can take your sexual pleasures to a whole new level when you are at the height of orgasmic delight; thereby extending the zing of climax!
Male desensitizers contain an anesthetic drug, benzocaine which is responsible for the inhibition of voltage dependent sodium channels (VDSC), located on the nerve membrane. As a result the action in response to sexual stimulus ceases. Some companies use lidocaine for male desensitization. Though it has no harm but benzocaine are found to be more effective in desensitizing the organ.
Male desensitizers are sprayed on penis and rubbed along the shaft and glans which then absorbs deep into penis tissues, thereby desensitizing it.
A new herbal formula from Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine have been found to be very effective in treating the premature ejaculation. A double blind study was carried out to check the efficacy of this formulation. The study involved 148 men, aging from 21 to 60. All were facing issues such as premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction and/or low libido. Results showed that using herbal formula can improve the symptoms of premature ejaculation by 64% while erectile problems improved by up to 67%. Over sexual satisfaction was raised up to 78% after using this formulation.
This herbal formula is a promising invention for treating premature ejaculation. Good thing is that it has undergone clinical trials, thus assuring its safety and efficacy. Another advantage of this formulation is that it doesn’t require any prescription thus, solution for those who don’t like to talk about their “manly” problems. Also, unlike male desensitizers, it does not produce a numbing effect on the females or alters the quality of sexual intercourse.
Besides taking herbal formula, a person should also maintain a healthy lifestyle as there are several factors responsible for this distressing issue. Furthermore, premature ejaculation can get fixed on its own but not in every case. Some men have this problem on and off for years. Feeling shy and not consulting doctor can make things worse. Therefore, it’s better to consult a doctor, if your symptoms are not responding to the over-the-counter treatment options.
