Man’s premature ejaculation ‘cured’ after docs zap his penis with electrical current 0 92

PREMATURE ejaculation can be distressing for those who suffer with it and their sexual partners.

But scientists may have discovered a way to cure the ailment through the use of electrical currents.

Premature ejaculation, or erectile dysfunction impacts millions of men worldwide and it is very common.

Common treatment options include behavioural techniques, topical anaesthetics, counselling or medication.

A doctor may order blood tests to check the levels of testosterone, and you may be referred to a urologist or sexual dysfunction specialist.

But this new treatment could be an alternative option and involves electrodes being stuck onto the penis for 30 minutes, for three sessions a week.

Writing in the Asian Journal or Urology experts revealed that one man who underwent the therapy was able to last seven times longer in bed than before.

The 28-year-old man was treated in Lebanon for six months after trying different drugs to help with his condition.

The experts said the man had been in a relationship with his girlfriend for a year and would usually ejaculate after 40 seconds.

After the course of treatment he was able to have intercourse for five minutes before climaxing.

As part of the treatment, a nerve stimulator machine is used, which is then attached to the penis shaft.

One surface electrode is placed on the base of the shaft, with the other 2cm up.

The machine disrupts the nerve response that is needed for muscles to contract – which would result in ejaculation

Over the course of the treatment period the man was exposed to electrical currents .

Before the treatment course he had to measure the time from vaginal penetration to ejaculation – which was 40 seconds.

By the end of the treatment plan this was around three minutes and 54 seconds.

Once he stopped using the device, it continued to improve his sex life.

Fourteen months after the treatment it was taking him five minutes and 14 seconds to reach climax – which the NHS says is the average time.

How can you treat premature ejaculation?

There are a number of things you can do before seeking professional help.

According to the NHS, it can sometimes help to:

  • masturbate an hour or two before having sex
  • use a thick condom to help decrease sensation
  • take a deep breath to briefly shut down the ejaculatory reflex (an automatic reflex of the body during which ejaculation occurs)
  • have sex with your partner on top (to allow them to pull away when you are close to ejaculating)
  • take breaks during sex and think about something boring

Medics did not state that the treatment was painless, but said they can be used ‘without discomfort’.

However, they did explain that it is not yet ‘fully understood’ why these electro currents help with premature ejaculation.

They stated that they believe stimulating the dorsal nerve interferes with the muscles that contract when a man is about to ejaculate.

They added that more studies need to be done to determine whether or not this therapy can be used as a drug-free treatment for those experiencing premature ejaculation.

According to the NHS, a number of psychological and physical factors can cause premature ejaculation.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 40

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

I’m a mess and need to start getting a grip for the kids’ sake.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
