According to the American Urological Association, it could also be the most common male sexual disorder that the majority of men face.

This situation can be incredibly frustrating especially because it could feel uncontrollable and the more you try to stop it, the worse it gets. You might manage by taking your mind on a trip elsewhere but does that help you enjoy sex at all?

Fortunately, it does not have to be a long-standing problem that you have to face. Numerous techniques can help you last longer in bed, so you and your partner are satisfied.

2. Try edging

Edging is a sexual technique used to slow down stimulation and prolong how long it takes to reach an orgasm. Also known as orgasm control, it involves bringing yourself close to an orgasm and slowing down before you climax. Repeating this process severally during sexual activity will increase your stamina and help you to have control over ejaculation.

3. Go for longer-lasting positions

Similarly, you might want to try positions that do not provide too much stimulation. Avoid positions that allow deep penetration like doggy or missionary styles. Try positions that are shallow and don’t require complete penetration like the lotus position, spooning, side-by-side, and reverse cowgirl.

4. The pause and squeeze technique

When you feel like you’re going to climax, pause and gently squeeze the head of your private part. This helps with decreasing arousal and delaying ejaculation. After the urge to climax passes, you can resume sexual activity.

Although, this method requires constant communication with your partner to avoid turning them off.

5. Use the right protection

Using condoms during any sexual activity should be the norm in this day and age, but in the case of premature ejaculation, you might want to take extra precautions as to what type of condoms you use. Check for condoms made with thick rubbers that can desensitise your private part during sex. They can help with premature ejaculation, almost acting like a numbing instrument to help prolong reaching climax.
