Kegel exercises are a method to strengthen pelvic floor muscles created by Dr. Arnold Kegel in the 1940s and are primarily used by women for improved urinary control. Kegel exercises are also used by men for the same reason, to obtain improved bladder control.
Recently, some therapists and sexologists have been advocating Kegel exercises (often called pelvic floor exercises) in order to improve sexual dysfunctions including erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. For PE, the theory is that strong pelvic floor muscles can inhibit the ejaculatory reflex and delay ejaculation.
We have searched the literature and have not found any clinical data to support the efficacy of Kegel exercises for premature ejaculation. However, we see little risk in giving them a try, particularly with apparent general benefits of stronger pelvic floor muscles.
An increasing number of sexologists are combining kegel exercises with a small dose of Promescent in order to help men gain ejaculation control.
