Delay Spray for Premature Ejaculation

Delay sprays, creams and gels have become the go-to solution for many men suffering from premature ejaculation (PE). Also known as male genital desensitizers or last-longer sprays, in contrast to wipes and gels, have the added benefit of controlling the amount of anesthetic agent per metered spray. This, in part, makes them a preferred way to treat PE. Lasting longer in bed is a number one priority for many men, and with the readily available sprays now on the market, it’s easier than ever for men to improve their sex life with just a few sprays.

While delay spray for premature ejaculation products have been around for more than six decades, many men still aren’t aware these products even exist. Before you decide to try something that can help you last longer in bed, there are a few things you should know.

What You Need to Know About Delay Spray

Of the premature ejaculation creams, wipes and spray products available, many men prefer sprays over creams and wipes for multiple reasons. With a wipe, dose control is difficult as you don’t know how much of the active ingredient that’s being applied. Creams are messy and dosing isn’t measured and difficult to estimate. Lidocaine-based sprays are required to come in a metered dose spray bottle that delivers an exact amount of the active ingredient with each spray, so dose control is easy. All sprays currently on the market have a low cost per use. Most men focus on choosing a product with superior performance and if applied properly a delay spray typically ensures the best success rate for men trying to improve their intimacy.


How Do I Use It


Delay ejaculation spray products like Promescent are simple to use. Spray directly on your penis or, as most men do, spray on your fingertips then apply to location on your penis that provides the best control. For most men, that’s the frenulum. It really is that simple. And the pump action is ideal to measure the amount of product being released, so you can adjust the dose to your specific needs such as penis sensitivity, your level of sexual excitement, the last time you ejaculated or if you expect to go straight to intercourse or warm up more slowly with foreplay.

Are There Side Effects?


While there are few side effects with most delay sprays, Promescent has a very low side effect profile. One of the most commonly stated side effects of delay sprays in general is over-desensitizing, which Promescent has addressed with our patented TargetZone® technology which allows for targeted absorption exactly where it is is applied when properly administered.

Still, all delay spray products have some risk. When too much spray is applied, potential side effects may include skin irritation, burning or excessive numbing. But it’s comforting to know that Promescent is so effective, and with so few side effects, it’s actually become a well-regarded delay ejaculation spray endorsed and recommended by urologists and sex therapists around the world.

Does It Work?


Promescent is a market-leading delay spray. Satisfied men love Promescent because they last longer and feel more in control when they’re making love. And if the many reviews from happy men aren’t enough to convince you, maybe the doctors who recommend Promescent can. More than 2,000 urologists and sex therapists trust Promescent so much, they recommend it to patients suffering from PE. Promescent is effective, giving men better control for a longer lasting sexual experience. Having sold over 1,000,000 bottles - many of those men who order regularly can attest, Promescent clearly works.

Delay Spray vs Premature Ejaculation Cream

Many men wonder about the difference between a delay spray vs. a premature ejaculation cream. And when trying to find something that’s actually effective to last longer in bed, it can be tempting to try anything. But there are a handful of reasons why so many men prefer spray over the creams available. Wondering about pros and cons of each?

Pros of delay sprays:

  • Metered release, giving men accurate release with every pump
  • Targeted application is easy
  • Promescent’s patented technology means targeted-absorption, so transference is limited if used as directed.

Cons of delay sprays:

  • Not all products work the same or are as effective
  • Limited studies available (only one product has clinical research – Promescent)
  • Many fake or sub-par products available

Pros of delay creams:

  • Applying a delay cream can be fun
  • Numbing is generally effective
  • Don’t need to apply all over, allowing for more targeted application

Cons of delay creams:

  • Messy, cream can also absorb into hands
  • High chance of transference to partners
  • Risk of over-applying, resulting in too much numbing action and possible loss of erection
