Trojan Extended Pleasure Spray is a benzocaine-based spray meant to help men last longer in bed. Is this premature ejaculation treatment right for you? Let’s take a look.
Are you looking to last longer during sex?
Over-the-counter desensitizing condoms, sprays, and wipes have grown to be highly sought-after products for those that suffer from premature ejaculation (PE).
Among them is Trojan Extended Pleasure spray.
Let’s take a closer look at
Trojan does not offer exact detail on how long the spray lasts. However, you should get at least 30 minutes of desensitization based on similar benzocaine-based products and if used as directed.
Yes, Trojan states that their product will work with latex condoms.
If used as directed, then Trojan Extended Pleasure spray has a very low probability of transference.
Trojan recommends against oral use of the product. However, if this is a concern, other benzocaine-based products, and lidocaine-based sprays are safe for oral sex.
As with all delay sprays for PE, there are a few pros and cons to consider with Trojan Extended Pleasure spray.
Take a closer look at the pros and cons below:
Trojan Extended Pleasure spray is a numbing spray made with a 7.5 percent benzocaine solution as its active ingredient.
It is meant to be applied directly to the penis to help men that suffer from premature ejaculation last longer in bed.
Once applied to the penis, the desensitization effects will last somewhere between 30-45 minutes.
When used properly, Trojan Extended Pleasure delay spray should work for most men looking to gain extra time in the bedroom.
Unfortunately, there are no formal studies available for the Trojan brand duration spray.
Nevertheless, there are Trojan Extended Pleasure delay spray reviews from everyday users that report positive experiences.
However, there are also a few anecdotal reports that the spray does not seem to be as effective as expected.
Even though there have not been formal studies performed on Trojan Extended Pleasure spray, the product will likely yield some performance gains.
Topical benzocaine products have been tested for efficacy for men with PE, and these studies can potentially offer some insight into the benzocaine-based spray from Trojan.
By contrast, lidocaine-based sprays like Promescent Delay Spray may offer even more significant gains in the bedroom.
In an event-level impact study of Promescent, ejaculation times went from 6.81 minutes without the spray to 11.16 minutes with the spray on average.
Trojan's duration spray is easy to use. You only need a few extra minutes of wait time to allow the spray time to sink into the skin of the penis and get to work.
Simply follow the three-step guidelines offered by the manufacturer.
Determine which areas of the penis feel most sensitive and apply the spray to these areas.
Trojan recommends applying the spray around the head and possibly along the shaft.
Like other delay sprays, it can take a little trial and error to determine which parts of the penis should be desensitized.
Pro Tip: Promescent makes applying delay spray easy and reliable with our metered-dose spray and TargetZone Technology. You’ll get the same dosage with every spray right where you need it most.
And, it is better to have too little product than too much. Therefore, it is a good idea to start with a small amount of spray on precise points and adjust as needed.
Benzocaine acts relatively quickly, possibly even showing effectiveness before the solution fully dries on the penis.
Most Trojan Extended Pleasure delay spray reviews claim that it takes about 10 minutes for the penis to dry fully.
After waiting the allotted time, if there is still fluid on the penis, wash it off to negate the risk of partner transference during intercourse.
One added step that Trojan offers with the usage directions on how to use Trojan Extended Pleasure spray is to wash the product off after intercourse.
Most men clean up after sex, so this added step should not be an issue. Simply wash the penis with soap and water to prevent extended exposure to the benzocaine solution.
Trojan does not offer specifics about how long the desensitizing action will last, and the specifics can vary from one man to the next depending on the sensitivity and how much of the product is used.
Trojan states specifically on their benzocaine spray that the product works with latex condoms, although there are no studies confirming this.
To use the spray with a condom, be sure the product has dried on the skin before putting on the condom.
Otherwise, the benzocaine will get spread over the full penis, which means less sensitivity all over.
When used properly, Trojan Extended Pleasure spray has a low chance of transferring to a partner, much like other benzocaine-based products.
Just be sure to allow the product to dry fully before intercourse or partner play.
For added transfer-risk reduction, wash off the penis with soap and water after the skin has absorbed the product.
To negate the risks of undesirable side effects, Trojan recommends not using the product more than four times within a day.
Even though it's not explicitly stated, it may also be best to keep a bit of time between each application to prevent absorbing a large amount of benzocaine in a short time frame.
While this implies that the solution should not be applied to oral areas, it may also be best to avoid oral sex while using Trojan's Extended Pleasure spray.
The primary side effects reported with Trojan Extended Pleasure spray are associated with reactions to benzocaine.
As with all desensitizing products for premature ejaculation, it is important to use them only if there are no known allergies or sensitivities to the active ingredients.
In rare cases, people may develop a rash, itching, burning sensations, or some type of skin irritation with use. If any of these occur, immediately wash off the product and discontinue use.
Benzocaine has been linked to a rare condition called methemoglobinemia. This usually only occurs when exposed to high levels of the anesthetic.
Methemoglobinemia reduces oxygen levels in the blood and can be life-threatening.
Contact a healthcare provider immediately if you experience:
Based on other topical benzocaine premature ejaculation treatments, Trojan Extended Pleasure delay spray should offer performance gains.
Some evidence suggests that lidocaine-based sprays may offer longer-lasting effects and better performance gains.
When used properly, the risks of side effects are low with benzocaine-based products although some men may still have specific sensitivities to the solution due to allergies.
There is a notable lack of information provided about the product and it is difficult to say just what to expect.
It’s just over $10 at most retailers so giving it a try will not break the bank.
