The Stigma

We live in a society where sex is consumerised regularly through all mediums but takes an anti-sex stance. As a result, many people have a very distorted and narrow perception of sex.

This topic is also one wherein myths and misinformation reign supreme. Unless you are someone who actively made an extra effort to learn and unlearn correctly about sex, the chances are that you still hold onto more of misinformation and misconceptions about sex. One of these ideas is -The myth of masturbation causing premature ejaculation.


Can Masturbation Really Cause Premature Ejaculation (PE)?

The short answer is no.

This myth is just as flawed as the myth that suggests that masturbation makes you go blind or brings hairs on your palms. The evidence behind such a claim is painfully lacking. Unlike the popular narrative, men do not suffer from PE, just because they cannot last an hour. A man is said to have PE when he does not have voluntary, conscious control, or the ability to choose in most encounters when to ejaculate. This can cause conflicts in a sexual relationship where the other partner cannot get satisfaction from penetrative sex since the penis starts returning to its flaccid form. The shame associated with the condition does not only have negative impacts on one's sex life, but it can also negatively affect the man's mental health.


"We got married 3 years ago after a 5-year relationship. The initial 5 years before marriage was very good. I am a person with a high sex drive but never got much of it from my wife post marriage which pushed me to resort to porn & masturbation. After our marriage, I ejaculated even before actual intercourse. My wife said to me that she is not happy with the marriage due to this, and I should consult a doctor, and now this stigma of me suffering from PE took a toll on my mental health, and I started ignoring sex overall."

The above testimony is from a man who actually suffers from PE and is seeking help for it. The stigma around PE and masturbation causes men to shut down their concerns and keep their problems to themselves instead of finding a way to solve them. Most men like him don't seem to know that one of the most effective ways of treating premature ejaculation is by controlled masturbation. Yes, the wrongfully accused problem is the solution here. There are proven masturbatory techniques that can teach men to delay ejaculation during self-stimulation, but the results will extend to sex with a partner.


Techniques That Will Help Delay Ejaculation And Enjoy A Long-lasting Sexual Encounter

The stimulation pausing technique has helped many men who have struggled with PE. While doing this technique, you are only supposed to focus on the sensations of your penis as you stimulate yourself, instead of indulging in your fantasies. When you feel the climax approaching, you stop the stimulation and gently hold on to your penis, understanding and enjoy the sensation of being on the edge. Wait till the urge to ejaculate is gone before stimulating yourself again. With practice, you will learn how to recognize your oncoming climax, anticipate the need to stop, when to stop and how long to wait before resuming the stimulation. Masturbation at an hour before sexual intercourse is also one of the well-proven techniques to delay ejaculation.


Masturbation Is Healthy

It helps you relax and feel good about yourself. It lets you learn what your likes and dislikes are and is proven to help your sex life. It is a normal part of being a sexually developed human being, and there is no shame in pleasuring yourself. Indulging yourself through masturbation and learning about your sexuality is far better than entering a sexual relationship with your eyes wide shut about your desires. Another concern that men often raise is the prospect of masturbating too much. There is no ideal number when it comes to masturbation. It's all about living a healthy lifestyle. If you're masturbating well enough to carry on with other tasks in your life, it's fine. But when masturbation is the only thing on your mind, or when the urge is causing you harm, it could be a problem. Other than that, don't let misinformation and myths stop you from enjoying yourself.
