I found the 'squeeze technique' when doing some research online for ways to last longer in bed.
It has been a bit painful for me and seems like it could interrupt the sexual experience (I've only practiced during masturbation).
I've tried it a couple of times, however, even though I squeeze the base of my penis, I still cum once I release the pressure.
Am I doing this right?
Does the squeeze technique work to stop me from coming so fast, and how can I see the quickest results possible?
The squeeze technique, which is also sometimes called the pause-squeeze technique, is one of the earliest techniques developed to help delay ejaculation.
It works by essentially stopping sexual stimulation as soon as you feel the urge to ejaculate, and then squeezing the head of your penis firmly until those feelings to subside.
Studies suggest that the squeeze technique can manage and treat premature ejaculation.
The goal with the squeeze technique is to hold the squeeze until the urge to climax subsides, which means you will have time to work your way back to that point.
Before re engaging with stimulation, be sure you don't feel like you are right on the edge.
The squeeze technique is something you can definitely practice during masturbation, but you can even get your partner involved in the process—they can do the squeezing to cool you down.
While the initial benefit of the squeeze technique is manually delaying ejaculation, the latter benefit may be greater ejaculation control, even without squeezing.
Some men can delay ejaculation without squeezing after enough practice.
Several variations of the squeeze technique exist.
For example, some instructions say to squeeze the lower part of the shaft and even the testicles.
However, the general squeeze technique involves putting pressure on the head of the penis right where it joins the shaft, as this is where the most sensitive nerves tend to be.
If squeezing your head doesn't seem to work, feel free to experiment with applying direct pressure to other parts of the penis to find what works best for you.
Additionally, other alternative options like delay sprays are complimentary to the practice and could help you master the technique.
It will take a lot of practice to eventually be able to perform the squeeze technique successfully, but the payoff of better intimacy could well be worth it.
