How to Prevent Premature Ejaculation During Sex

By Sarah Harding ; Updated August 14, 2017

Men often ejaculate sooner than intended during sexual intercourse. An occasional occurrence is nothing to be ashamed of or concerned about. Frequent episodes of premature ejaculation may be more bothersome. According to the Mayo Clinic, there are both psychological and biological reasons for the premature ejaculation condition. Treatment methods include medication, counseling and control enhancing techniques. These methods can improve your ejaculation control as well as enhance your overall sexual experience by increasing the intensity of an orgasm, as outlined by Penishealth.com.

Before Sexual Intercourse

  1. Masturbate one to two hours before you are planning to have sexual intercourse. This can relieve anxiety or seminal pressure that may have built up. By relieving this tension, you may be more relaxed and it may take longer to reach an orgasm.

  2. Engage in extended foreplay. Instead of focusing on intercourse, focus on sexual play to prolong the amount of time the penis is erect. Mayo Clinic suggests that this will take the pressure off your sexual performance as well as help you practice stamina.

  3. Stop your urine stream once to identify the pelvic floor muscle. The clenching of the pelvic floor muscle can improve ejaculation control, according to PenisHealth.com.

  4. Do pelvic floor muscle exercises. Contract and hold the pelvic floor muscle for a count of three. Release and repeat. Continue doing small sets of this exercise, also called Kegels, daily. Increase the number of repetitions as well as the length of the contraction as the exercise becomes easier for you.

During Sexual Intercourse

  1. Begin stimulating the penis either manually or during intercourse. Continue doing this until you feel you are nearing an orgasm.

  2. Squeeze the end of the penis where the head joins the shaft. Hold until you no longer feel the urge to ejaculate.

  3. Resume penile stimulation 30 seconds after releasing the penis. Mayo Clinic points out that the penis may not be fully erect after the squeeze was applied but stimulation should continue anyway.

  4. Repeat the steps again when you feel that you are about to ejaculate. With practice, the squeeze may be omitted as you will have learned how to control your ejaculations.

  5. Tip

    Use a condom to decrease sensation. Identify something that can distract you during sex to prevent ejaculation. Focus on controlled breathing during intercourse.
