Most men are mortified when they experience premature ejaculation (PE). But it’s actually quite common. 40% of men experience PE at some point in their lives. Now a dating coach has come up with a simple solution all men can take part in. When you have to pee, hold it for an extra five seconds. That’s right,adding a five second hold can strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. These muscles in turn can clamp up the urethra and hold back ejaculation, allowing your performance to carry on longer and adding greater satisfaction to your partner’s experience. This is actually a twist on what are called Kegels. These exercises were originally designed to help women recover after having a baby. But men have pubococcygeus (PC) or pelvic floor muscles too which can stave off ejaculation. If you have ever cut off your urine stream before finishing, you are using these muscles.
Experts say once you can locate and isolate these muscles, you can work them out just as you would any other muscle group. Merely tighten them for three to five seconds and then relax. In fact, you can do it in the car on your ride to work, in the office, anywhere and no one will be the wiser. In a YouTube video, Kinrys says one should aim for 30 to 50 reps per day. Start with between one and 20 and work your way up to 50. After five seconds it’s a breeze, you can move on to a seven second hold time, and then keep working your way up as the muscles gain strength. According to the International Society of Sexual Medicine PE is considered a performance that lasts under a minute. Many men have extra sensitive nerve endings in the penis as the source of the issue. Stress or anxiety can cause or exacerbate the problem too. Last year, a study out of Italy determined that such exercises increased a man’s performance significantly. Participants lasted four times longer on average. It’s important to make sure no physical or psychological issues are causing this condition. Be sure to visit your doctor if it is a persistent problem.
