First things first, the basics:
Everything in our body is connected. Physical symptoms like poor gut health, for example, have recently been linked to psychological disorders like fatigue and depression; while mental issues like anxiety commonly manifest themselves in physical ways like insomnia, loss of appetite, and high blood pressure.
Your penis isn’t immune to the ebbs and flows of your health either. As you’ve probably noticed when you’re sick, or tired, your libido drops and so does your sexual stamina. When you’re feeling great physically and mentally, however, the sex can be equally great.
What you might not know, however, is that those who suffer premature ejaculation have also been linked to health issues. According to our data, men who climax too early tend to have higher rates of depression, stress, anxiety and weight gain, and even exercise less frequently.
Healthy mind, healthy body, healthy penis. Here’s a few factors that need your attention in treating and preventing premature ejaculation.
From a pretty basic medical perspective, not having a healthy blood flow to your penis can have a major effect on your sexual performance. Good blood flow will increase the size of your erection, as well as extend how long you last before ejaculating.
Being overweight, smoking, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease can all impact the way blood flows to the penis and affect your experience of sex. Exercise and a nutritious diet will help assist blood flow, as will avoiding too-tight underwear or clothing.
For some, one of the key causes of premature ejaculation is anxiety. It’s different for everyone, but like the chicken and the egg, it’s hard to know what came first (no pun intended). For some men, a one-off incident climaxing too early can cause ongoing stress about it happening again; whilst for others it will have been a constant problem, causing increasing levels of anxiety.
There are two things that will often cause anxiety in the bedroom — making sure your partner is enjoying herself, and making sure your body does what you want it to.
If you are suffering anxiety about having sex, or climaxing too quickly, don’t worry. Help is available. Rather than mask the problem with drugs, alcohol, or numbing agents, you can actually tackle the issue from the inside out. Using the FDA cleared Climax Control Training Program by Prolong will give you permanent results. Participants of our our independent clinical self-reported higher sexual satisfaction, better communication with their partner and lower anxiety levels. If that doesn’t convince you, we don’t know what will.
Losing weight has proven results on both your mental and physical health. Not only do you regain confidence and a new excitement for life, your body also starts to heal itself. The list is endless: you’re looking at better sleep, better moods, healthier sex drive, clear skin, less illness, more energy, less medication, and so much more.
When it comes to your penis, weight loss will improve circulation (see above) and help to improve the muscle mass in your groin, thighs, and lower stomach as well. Mentally, improved self esteem is going to make you feel proud to strip off and jump into bed, as well as decrease concerns over how you look naked.
From a physical perspective, you actually gain length on your penis with the weight you lose. Holding excess fat around the groin area can cause a ‘sunken penis’, where length is literally swallowed up by fat. Lose weight = gain length.
A crucial factor to controlling premature ejaculation is your confidence level. Skinny, fat, muscular, healthy, unhealthy, whatever — if you don’t have a true sense of confidence in your sexuality, your sex life is going to suffer.
Think about what unhealthy thoughts have become a pattern in your mind during sex. Do you worry that you’re making weird noises? Or maybe that you’re not adventurous enough? Are you concerned your partner isn’t climaxing often enough? Or that you don’t look as good as they do?
Confidence is one of the sexiest qualities any man can possess. It doesn’t matter what you look like or how big your penis is, being confident in the bedroom — and in life —overrules everything else. It shows that you are totally happy and relaxed in your own skin — and that will make your partner feel relaxed, too.
For men who have suffered premature ejaculation, you might feel like you’ve tried everything. It can start to feel like a lifelong problem that you’ll never escape. The good news is that there is a solution.
