In case you’ve ever wondered… Condoms definitely DO have an effect on how long you can expect to last during sex. And here’s how you can use that to your advantage…
But before I get into that let me just cover the fundamentals.
Firstly, if you don’t know how to put on a condom properly then read this article now called Sunday Sex Ed Tips: Condoms.
Secondly, whether or not you practise safe sex is totally down to you. I am not here to tell you how to live your life or claim that I am a doctor who is making any medical recommendations, but my personal opinion is that you should always wear a condom for health and safety purposes if you are not 100% certain of the person you are with or if you don’t want to risk pregnancy.
With that stuff said… Let me get to the point of this post
The way in which wearing condoms effects premature ejaculation is as follows…
One of the main causes of premature ejaculation is “over-stimulation”.
In other words, when you experience more stimulation than you can handle in a very short period of time that’s when premature ejaculation happens.
So if you can reduce the stimulation you experience down to a more controllable level then naturally you can last longer.
Side note: I am in NO way saying you should take the pleasure out of sex. I am just saying that if you orgasm early because of overwhelming pleasure then there’s no harm in reducing the stimulation you experience slightly so you can have the LONG-TERM satisfaction of long-lasting sex, rather than less than a minute’s worth of super-intense pleasure.
And how does this “over-stimulation” concept relate to condoms?
Well when you wear a condom the overall stimulation you experience is reduced.
This is why some men prefer sex without a condom, because they feel more.
But if you struggle with premature ejaculation then wearing a condom can work in your favour. Since by wearing a condom you reduce the stimulation you experience it’s easier to last longer.
So there you have it.
Not only do condoms keep you safe from disease and unwanted pregnancy, they also help you last longer in bed.
And if you want to last even longer then you can get some thicker condoms to reduce the sensation even more.
But you’ll want to be sure to find the balance between lasting longer and how much pleasure you get, because the goal is not to make it so you feel nothing during sex, but you do want to take your pleasure levels down to a controllable level so you can at least enjoy long-lasting sex.
Alternatively, if you don’t want to use condoms as a “crutch” for lasting longer then you can learn some 100% natural techniques like the ones in this article on How Can I Last Longer In Bed?
