New Spray Product Claims to Prevent Premature Ejaculation
Premature ejaculation isn’t just limited to oversexed schoolboys. The problem afflicts many adult men.
Sure, many spouses may occasionally wish their husbands had the problem (when you’ve memorized every single paint swish on the ceiling, you know you’ve got a problem). But there are many who suffer from the old "Open up, Bridgett, I’m comin’ in!" school of "wham, bam, thank you, ma’am." The old reliable Jack Rabbit may finish the job, but it’s somehow just more ... mechanical.
The fact is, while some men suffer form premature ejaculation (PE) as a medical condition. many more are victims of society, upbringing, religion or circumstance. It’s one thing to do a quick-and-dirty in the back seat of Dad’s Ford, but that same sense of rushing it often carries over into married lives. Couples get used to cramming on in between Baby’s feeding, Junior’s softball practice and Sis’ asking where her comb is.
As in all things sexual, Alfred Kinsey has provided us with the best set of statistics. He showed that three-quarers of the men he studied ejaculated within two minutes of penetration. Latinos and South Asian Indians have a higher rate of PE. The theory is that these men come from larger households, where private time is parsed out in small doses. Also, many men in these cultures continue to live in extended family units (which means it not only had better be quick, but quiet, too).
PE, defined as a man ejaculating in 60 seconds or earlier, apparently affects more men than erectile dysfunction, by 30 percent. There are a few drugs on the market, but these require a prescription and are all oral. They act on the brain’s receptors to delay ejaculation.
There are some creams but these act as desensitizers. And who wants to be desensitized when you’re about to perform the most sensory experience a human being can experience?
