Premature ejaculation is a sexual dysfunction characterized by the lost of elasticity of the PC (pubococcygeus) muscles that causes a person to ejaculate too soon during sexual intercourse. A problem that is very much treatable and preventable by using various methods of exercises to establish muscular control once again.
Locating the PC Muscles
To be able to do the exercises, you must first find out what these muscles are for and where it is located.
These pelvic muscles are responsible for the release of seminal fluid from the prostate gland out the penis via the urethral duct. A process called ejaculation. When these muscles weaken, a person may lose some degree of control and thereby causing them to ejaculate earlier than what is expected during sex.
You may locate these muscles by following this simple exercise:
When urinating, try stopping it on mid-stream. Try doing it a few times. Did you feel like your squeezing something inside your pelvis to stop the urine from coming out? What you’re squeezing actually is the PC (pubococcygeus) muscles. It is not only responsible for the release of seminal fluids, but these muscles also control the flow of urine.
Now that you’re familiar with the location and functions of the PC muscles, here are a few exercises to help you regain control of it once again or prevent premature ejaculation from happening:
1. Do this a few times a day, squeeze your PC muscles tightly for 10 seconds then release and relax it for 10 seconds also, repeat this exercise 15 times. This exercise is known as the Kegal exercise. Originally it is used by women during intercourse to increase sexual pleasure but have been found to be also effective for men to prevent premature ejaculation.
2. Practice arousing yourself to the point of the feeling of ejaculation and then stopping before it happening. Practice this method during intercourse or by yourself. Keep doing this until you already have a feeling of control over your ejaculation. Mastering this exercise will give you and your partner more pleasure during sex
3. This method is otherwise known as the start and stop technique. If you are going to practice this alone, and you should, it is best to mimic the warm and moist area of the vagina by using lubricants when you stimulate yourself. Build up the amount of times you can control an ejaculation. And when you’re already confident enough, try the method with your partner.
The problem of premature ejaculation may be physical or psychological in nature. Check with your physician to find out what causes this problem so that you’ll be able to select a treatment and preventive exercise that is best suited for you. Learn more and be more.
