If you’ve ever experienced the embarrassment caused by premature ejaculation, then you’ll be glad to learn that you’re not alone. In fact, recent estimates suggest that 25 – 40 percent of men experience the problem, which makes it the number one form of male sexual dysfunction.
But the fact that it’s an extremely common condition isn’t likely to make you feel any better. There’s nothing more likely to erode your confidence than feeling that you can’t last long enough to fully sexually satisfy your partner. But what’s worse, if it happens once, just the thought that it might happen again can cause your sex life to crash and burn. Nobody likes to feel inadequate and unfortunately, that’s exactly what premature ejaculation tends to do.
You’ll be glad to learn however, that there’s one very simple technique you can apply to overcome the problem. And by consistently performing this technique, not only will you never suffer from premature ejaculation again, but you’ll also vastly improve the quality of your erections and even improve your overall reproductive health.
The PC Muscle
One simple little exercise can help you to achieve all of the above. It’s known as the Kegel exercise and it helps you to strengthen and develop a little known muscle called the ‘PC’ muscle.
The PC muscle is a hammock shaped muscle that forms part of the pelvic floor. In other words it is located between your legs, just behind your scrotum.
In men, this muscle has three main functions. Firstly, it ensures that you have full control over your bladder. Secondly, it helps you to achieve an erection by pumping blood into the penis. And third, it acts to pump semen out of the penis when you ejaculate.
One of the easiest ways to feel the muscle working in action is to simply stop yourself from urinating when you’re still in mid flow. The muscle you consciously squeezed to achieve this feat was your PC.
You’ll also be aware of the PC muscle at work during sexual activity. When you’ve got an erection, it’s by flexing the PC muscle that you can make your penis stand up even higher. And you can also feel it involuntarily pulsating when you reach orgasm.
By performing Kegel exercises you can develop and strengthen this little muscle and gain complete control over its function. And once you’ve achieved this, you’ll experience rock hard erections, gain total control over when you ejaculate and will experience enhanced orgasm intensity. Put simply, you’ll be the master of your own sexual function.
How to Perform Kegels
Kegel exercises are extremely easy to perform and can be done almost anywhere without anyone even knowing what you’re doing.
To perform them all you need to do is clench your PC muscle tightly for around five seconds and then relax for a moment. You then continue this clenching and relaxing process for the desired number of repetitions.
If you’re brand new to Kegel exercises, you should try to aim for about fifty repetitions per session daily for the first couple of weeks. Once you feel comfortable with what you are doing, you can gradually build up the repetitions to around two hundred a day over the following month.
At first you may find that Kegels take quite a lot of conscious effort. When starting out, many people find it quite difficult to isolate their efforts just on the PC muscle and tend to find that they tense their abdominal muscles or their buttocks as well. But with a little practice you’ll be able to overcome this; and as your PC muscle gradually strengthens, you’ll find that they get much easier to perform.
The small amount of effort it takes to perform Kegel exercises on a daily basis is far outweighed by the positive effects you’ll experience to your sexual function. Give them a go for a couple of months and you’ll be amazed at the effects. They’ll become almost second nature and you’ll find yourself exercising your PC muscle at every opportunity: in the car, standing in the post office queue or even while you’re slumped on the couch. And the great thing is everyone around you will be blissfully unaware of what you’re up to.
It’s only that special someone who’ll notice the difference, and I can guarantee they’ll want to know that you’ve been doing.
