Who doesn’t hate arriving at a party too early? And by “at a” I mean “in a”, and by “party” I mean “woman”, and by “arriving” I mean “ejaculating”. No matter how much of a stallion you are, there’s always going to be a time where your concentration is lacking, or the girl is just a little too hot or whatever the case may be and your performance is somewhat over par. If you get the “it happens to a lot of guys” line then its like getting punched in the face. Unfortunately, this is the case for some men every time they have sex and it can accumulate into a major mental issue. It affects their relationships and can put them off sex completely. It is the most common sexual disorder in men today so solutions have become somewhat of a big market including hypnotherapy and Kegel exercises, but medically doctors have been somewhat stumped for actual treatment.
Thankfully help may be at hand (and no, that’s not a pun for the potential solution outlined in the movie There’s something about Mary). What I am referring to is a drug called Priligy. Priligy is already available in some European countries after being approved last year and its only one step away from being accepted by the FDA in the US. It works as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) much like most antidepressants. In fact, this is how Priligy was discovered after it was noted that antidepressants like Prozac and Zoloft were noted as having the side effect of prolonging climax. SSRIs work by increasing the concentration of serotonin outside of the cell, thereby promoting the amount of time it has to activate the serotonin receptors. Serotonin appears to play a central role in inhibiting ejaculation, so prolonging its life with the use of an SSRI helps delay climax.
But this stuff does priligynot come cheap with the BBC reporting that only three tablets will cost about $110 in the UK! This will likely deter any potential recreational users because of one word: Viagra. More specifically PDE-5 inhibitors, but that’s not one word. Under normal circumstances after climax a man will lose his erection. This is called the refractory period and is governed by the release of prolactin. For most men it takes anything from five to thirty minutes depending on your age, with most teenagers in puberty being able to get going again almost immediately. If you add a PDE-5 inhibitor to the equation you’ll find that they allow you to stay hard even after ejaculation so it doesn’t really matter whether you climax in under two minutes (which is the official definition for “premature ejaculation” by the way) or over ten, you can just keep hammering away. Incidentally, prolactin inhibitors can be utilized to reduce the refractory period. L-Dopa is a great compound for this purpose, and also has the added benefit of being able to promote testosterone! As you may be able to tell, I am quite a fan of this.
PDE-5 inhibitors are so easy to get a hold of these days, with some countries allowing for sale OTC, not to mention backstreet “vendors”. But PDE-5 inhibitors are not always great for those with blood pressure issues, and if you are currently on-cycle there’s a good chance your blood pressure will be higher than usual. Hopefully in a few years there will more choice for this type of SSRI sex-aid making the price a lot lower.
