Many men suffer from premature ejaculation, and for those who suffer repeatedly from this potentially embarrassing problem, knowing what exercises can help cure premature ejaculation can make all the difference. Numerous web sites and companies advertise supplements and other remedies, but these simple exercises can greatly improve stamina and reduce the occurrence of premature ejaculation without the possibility of dangerous side effects.
There are basically three types of exercises that can help cure premature ejaculation. These types are:
- Kegel exercises
- Exercises performed alone
- Exercises performed with your partner
Depending upon the type of exercises you are performing, you will follow different steps. However, the most important element of all these exercises is paying close attention to your body and how you feel just before you experience an orgasm. Knowing your body and its responses is a major part of successfully treating premature ejaculation.
Kegel exercises work to tone the muscles of the pelvic floor. Control of these muscles can help improve your sexual stamina. To perform Kegel exercises:
- While you are urinating, practice cutting off the flow. The muscles you use to stop the flow of urine are the PC muscles. Continued practice cutting off your urine flow will help you isolate the muscles you need to work with.
- Practice tightening and releasing the PC muscles. With repeated practice, the muscles will become stronger, providing you better control over your ejaculation and reducing the likelihood of premature ejaculation.
For exercises performed alone, the basic idea is, again, to pinpoint the feelings in your body just before ejaculation, then, once you've identified these sensations, finding ways to hold off the orgasm.
- Use self-stimulation to learn your orgasm "tells." This is the all-important first step. If you don't know how to recognize the "point of no return" until you've actually gotten there, it will be hard to back away from that point.
- Find ways to delay ejaculation. This can require some experimentation until you find the technique that works best for you. Squeezing just behind the head of the penis often works well. You can also make use of mental imagery–the cliche of reciting baseball stats is an old one, but this approach can be quite effective.
After you've practiced on your own, the next step is to ensure the methods are effective with a partner. Because stimulation tends to be more intense with a partner, don't be discouraged if the first few times are not as successful as you would wish.
- Let your partner help. If squeezing behind the head of the penis or another, similar physical approach, works well for you, let your partner take over this duty.
- Try different positions to reduce the level of stimulation. Experimentation with your partner will help you find positions that will help you hold off a bit longer, with the added bonus of adding some variety to your time in the bedroom.
Above all, regardless of what final approach works best for you, be sure to keep communication open between you and your partner. Frank discussion of the problem and involvement of your partner in finding the solutions can greatly increase the likelihood of eventual success.
