ways for men to delay ejaculation

Get support from your partner

Getting support from your partner can be an important part of the process. "To begin with, tell your partner that you want to try lasting longer, and ask your partner if they're interested in that," says Vanessa Marin, MFT, a licensed sex therapist in private practice. This may help your partner understand what's going on and help you talk openly about any feelings of frustration. Once communication is open with your partner, you can discuss exactly what triggers your orgasm and try practicing the following methods.

Use condoms

Since premature ejaculation may be a result of hypersensitivity, using a condom is a simple solution that may make sex last longer. The condom forms a barrier around the penis that dulls sensation and may lead to delayed ejaculation.

Try desensitizing condoms

Desensitizing condoms come with numbing agents such as Benzocaine or Lidocaine that reduce sensitivity in the genitals and are designed to numb the penis during sexual activity Although these numbing agents  are safe and effective in countering premature ejaculation, side effects can include allergic dermatitis and penile gangrene.

Spend more time on foreplay

Spending more time on foreplay can help you last longer in bed. In a confidential survey conducted in the U.S about peoples' experiences with orgasm, sexual pleasure and genital touching, more than a third responded that stimulation was necessary for orgasm.
