The Squeeze and Release Technique
Buy some time before reaching your climax with a tip that temporarily represses your ejaculatory response. As you feel yourself approaching orgasm, stop all stimulation and squeeze your penis just below the head. Applying pressure to the urethra - a tube that runs along the underside of your penis - will halt your body's ejaculatory response. Once your arousal has died down a bit, commence friction again. You should be able to do this about three or four times before giving in to climax.

Another way to extend your sexual pleasure and push back your ejaculatory response is with the use of a condom. The simple barrier of a condom will reduce the sensations picked up by the nerve endings in the penis. That means reduced friction, which directly translates to lasting longer in bed. A word of caution, though: Avoid the ultra thin and super sensitive varieties. While these condoms are often touted as the most popular on the market, they actually increase sensitivity in the head of the penis, which is exactly what you don't want if you're trying to learn how to prevent premature ejaculation.

Take Matters into Your Own Hands
A historically effective technique for lasting longer in bed has been to masturbate a few hours before a planned sexual encounter. Taking time to unload your gun before a hot date or anniversary dinner will make it easier for you to take your time and avoid the intense need to orgasm immediately.

Start and Stop
The real key to learning to last as long as possible is getting used to building your arousal and then easing up. The next time you feel you're at the point of no return, pause for about 10 seconds without any stimulation at all. Once you're excitement has abated, resume stimulation. Like the squeeze technique, this method can be used a few times before allowing release.

Performance anxiety and premature ejaculation go hand in hand. Taking a little time before getting intimate to relax and de-stress is sometimes all it takes to calm those raging nerves and make sex not only longer lasting, but more enjoyable as well. A little deep breathing, some meditation, or even a loving massage from your significant other are all great ways to unwind and take the pressure off. Also, this gives your partner a chance to reassure you that everything is ok, which is often enough to get your motor going again.

While certainly frustrating and at times embarrassing, PE is not a serious medical condition, and there's nothing written in stone that you are doomed for early takeoff for the rest of your sexual life. Instead, it can almost always be addressed with a natural, simple solution. Take the time to learn how to prevent premature ejaculation by putting these techniques into practice and you'll soon regain both your confidence and a satisfying sex life.
