Other guys may brag, but in reality, at least one in three of the guys you know have probably missed the mark on a regular occasion when it comes to how long they last in bed.

If your penis gets carried away because you are too sensitive during sex, and you climax before your partner has time to enjoy intimacy, you can walk away feeling like a real failure.

Those insecurities can only make things worse the next time things are heating up.

Quick FAQs

According to several independent studies, yes, they work!

While every man is different two separate studies, one from 2017, and another from 2019, showed average increased ejaculation time improvements of about 300%

Typically you will get peak performance from the wipe for about 30 minutes. However men have reported feeling diminished effects for up to 90 minutes.

How to last longer in bed is probably one of the most searched phrases on Google, and understandably so.

While you can find a lot of methods to try, you may want to consider sex wipes designed to slow your roll for you without a lot of manual work.

These sex wipes contain desensitizing agents like benzocaine to lower the sensitivity levels during sex.

And, they're a quick and easy alternative to masturbating before sex or trying other methods, like the squeeze technique, to prolong your orgasm.

Could delay wipes be the answer for you?

Possibly. Here's a closer look.

Do Premature Ejaculation Sex Wipes Work?

When used appropriately, sex wipes do work, and research has proven that fact.

A randomized, controlled trial of topical benzocaine wipes was published in The Journal of Urology in 2017. A group of 21 men with premature ejaculation were given the wipes or a placebo to use before sex.

To be considered as part of the study, all men had to be:

  • Over the age of 18
  • Dealing with distress related to bedroom performance
  • Having issues with ejaculation before two minutes of stimulation

When the men had sex using the wipes, all men who were provided the treatment had improved ejaculation times of an average of over two minutes.

The men who took part in the study also saw added advantages, such as:

  • Greater sexual satisfaction
  • Less stress related to sex
  • Enhanced control over ejaculation

What can you expect?

Your next question is probably just how much of a performance enhancement you can expect with sex wipes.

You should see a nice improvement in your ability to hold back on ejaculation, but every man can have his own experience.

While the studies on these wipes are not well-established yet, the few studies that have been done offer a promising look at what to expect.

For example, in a study published in 2019, participants using benzocaine, and not a placebo, saw an average three-minute boost in ejaculation time.

What to expect from sex wipes for premature ejaculation

After those same study participants used the wipes for two months, those time-to-ejaculation increases rose to an average of 5.5 minutes.

Of course, because every man's average time to ejaculation can differ, your experience may be unique.

How to Use Premature Ejaculation Sex Wipes

Sex wipes offer a convenient, easy-to-use, and proven premature ejaculation solution in a quick-and-simple, two-step application process.

Step 1. Use the wipe to apply the formula

Pull the wipe from its package or container—you will only need one wipe.

Rub the wipe across the parts of your penis that are the most sensitive to stimulation, such as under the head (eg; the frenulum) and the underside of the shaft.

Make sure you are leaving the skin moist with the formula.

Step 2. Wait for the formula to kick in

After you have moistened your skin using the wipe, take a minute to wash your hands to remove any residue you may have collected in the process.

Typically, you will feel the benzocaine start to take effect in a few minutes.

But, give the solution between 5 and 10 minutes to get fully absorbed into the skin of your penis.

Foreplay, while you wait, is always a good idea.

Common Questions About PE Sex Wipes

Where can you buy sex wipes for PE?

Tips for purchasing sex wipes for premature ejaculation

Sex wipes are available through a limited number of adult toy retailers, but buying from the manufacturer is always the best option if at all possible.

To make sure you get the best wipes, be sure to:

  • Look at the active ingredients
  • Scout out some prior-user reviews
  • Buy from a reputable retailer

Some pharmacies may also offer sex wipes if you need something immediately. Of course, buying your sex wipes online ensures a discreet purchase.

How do Sex wipes work?

They work by using benzocaine to affect the sensitive nerves in your penis, which, by the way, may reach numbers as high as 8,000 or more depending on whether you are circumcised.

The benzocaine in the wipes block the signals received by your nervous system onced absorbed into the skin.

What do the wipes make your penis feel like?

Every man's experience will vary, but the general sensation change will go something like this:

  • You may feel initial warmth or tingling as the solution makes its way into your skin
  • You will feel your sensitivity levels start to wane
  • At about five minutes, you should feel like you are wearing a condom or have much lower sensitivity

How long will the benzocaine wipes last?

The general timeline is around half an hour, for the most part, but some men have reported still feeling some mild effects for up to 90 minutes.

Some other factors to consider:

  • Not every wipe is made with the same ingredients
  • Body chemistry can affect the outcome
  • Sexual activity is not always the same

Usually, you will recognize when the desensitization hits a prime point—possibly around 5 to 10 minutes—and then the sensations will slowly lessen until you have all your feelings back.

Will the desensitization transfer to your partner?

It would be difficult to close the orgasm gap if you desensitize your partner and your penis while using sex wipes.

So, be sure to use the wipes as directed, wait for the formula to absorb, and wash your hands after application.

These simple tips will mean little to no transference of the solution to your partner.

Once the topical anesthetic absorbs into your skin, the solution is less likely to escape through your skin and affect your partner's sensitivity levels.

Can you receive oral sex while using benzocaine sex wipes?

Sex wipes and oral sex

Generally, oral sex should be fine while using premature ejaculation wipes, but with a few caveats:

  1. Allow the formula from the wipe to fully absorb into your skin
  2. Give your penis a quick rinse-off and dry off with a towel

To ensure you are not giving your partner a mouth full of anesthetic during oral sex, you may want to wait the full recommended timeline for the product to absorb as well.

The Benefits of Premature Ejaculation Sex Wipes

So, why use premature ejaculation wipes before sex?

As noted by the research, sex wipes may offer a few noteworthy benefits that make them worthy of your attention.

Increased Performance

Sex wipes for increased performance and closing the orgasm gap

The orgasm gap between men and women where sex is concerned is a pretty big deal.

A study showed that ninety-five percent of heterosexual men have an orgasm during sex with a female, but females only climax between 50 and 70 percent of the time with a man.

With that being said, using sex wipes to lower sensitivity levels and last longer can obviously lead to a more fulfilling sexual experience for both parties involved.

You can enjoy the encounter for longer, she may have an increased chance of climaxing, and both of you get more satisfaction overall.

Confidence Boost

Many men face sexual performance anxiety that affects their overall performance, which means you may get caught up in a vicious cycle.

In fact, some studies have shown that performance anxiety can be a direct link to erectile dysfunction.

When you step into the big moment feeling like you can last long enough to please your partner, your confidence levels naturally climb.

In return, your partner may be even more attracted and aroused—confidence is a high-ranking trait women look for in a man.

What are the best sex wipes?

Sex wipes are available across the internet in all kinds of shapes and formulas.

However, for your own safety and to ensure you have the best experience, picking the best delay wipes is important.

Risks and Side Effects of Sex Wipes

When used appropriately, benzocaine is considered to be safe for topical application.

While the risks are few and far between, we'll go over a few side effects of benzocaine to be mindful of when using sex wipes.

1. Issues with prolonged desensitization

In really rare cases if you use too much benzocaine in a short time frame, the wipes may cause prolonged desensitizing action.

If your penis feels low-sensitivity levels after 90 minutes when the product should start to wane, go ahead and do a thorough wash with soap and water.

Your sensations should return in a short time after.

2. Skin redness or irritation

Even though the issue is extremely rare, some men can have skin sensitivities to benzocaine, specifically with prolonged use.

Skin issues can show up as general redness or irritations, but also watch out for:

  • Pain, tenderness, or discomfort of the skin
  • Itching, stinging, or burning sensations
  • Flakiness or dryness after using the product

In the event, you spot any of these problems, be sure to discontinue using sex wipes.

If unpleasant sensations occur during use, simply wash your genitals with mild soap and water.

When you get your hands on the best sex wipes , you very well could see a close in the orgasm gap between you and your partner, and maybe even see a nice confidence boost in the process.
