Delay Sprays and Delay Creams

"Delay Spray", "Delay Cream", and "Delay Gel" are common names for topical anesthetics for PE. But how can there be so many of them? And what about these product and company names? Stud, Rock Hard, DOOZ, Climax, Super-Dragon, Excite Man, Jamaican, Adam & Eve, Sex, Sta- Erect, and the list goes on. Is it really that easy to make a delay spray or delay cream?

Well, yes, it is. You could literally put lidocaine in rubbing alcohol or even water, shake it up, and you would have a topical anesthetic. It wouldn't be surprising if each of these delay spray and cream products mentioned above were a simple mixture of lidocaine and a simple solvent like rubbing alcohol.

This technology has been around for more than 60 years. Schapiro first reported their use in 1943 (Schapiro B. PE, a review of 1130 cases. J Urol. 1943;50:374-9). If these simple delay sprays and delay creams worked well, why would physicians and pharmaceutical companies have spent the last 70 years and hundreds of millions of dollars seeking a solution for PE and subjecting people to the side effects of drugs such as SSRIs? The reason is that simple - lidocaine-based delay sprays and delay creams don't work well at all. They don't have the absorption characteristics necessary to give men the ejaculatory control and, simultaneously, continued pleasurable sensation.
