Despite the taboo, premature ejaculation is far more common than most men think. Maybe it does not happen every time, but most men have experienced it at different times in their lives. There are a whole plethora of reasons why it happens, from performance anxiety, to age, to just being with a really hot girl. Whatever the reason, the stigma makes the whole affair seem emasculating and quite humiliating. Maybe that’s your own brain making you feel like this, but either way, it can really play on your mind and affect your future performances.
If you feel it is something that affects your life, never fear. There are ways to deal with premature ejaculation, using a variety of herbs which will help you to last longer.
Gingko Biloba, also known as maidenhair, has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries. It helps to reduce anxiety, which will help with performance anxiety during sex. Furthermore, it helps to increase blood flow, which means that more blood will reach the extremities, helping blood to flow to the penis to create a bigger erection. It also helps more blood flow get to the brain, which assists with cognitive functioning allowing you to have more stimulated control over ejaculation.
More commonly known as ‘Horny Goat’s Weed’ in western societies, this herb helps to stimulate the production of nitric oxide in the body, which dilates the blood vessels. This dilation increases blood flow around the body as well as relaxing the muscles. Relaxing the muscles around the penis allows for a larger erection while also helping to prevent overstimulation of ejaculation, allowing more control.
Ginseng is commonly known to help sexual performance, by stimulating blood flow and increasing libido. However, ginseng works by breaking down blockages in the blood vessels, which is a common cause of premature ejaculation. By unblocking those vessels, blood flows more freely, providing the above benefits.
A herb that comes from West Africa, Yohimbe has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries to improve libido in both men and women. However, it has been shown to help with premature ejaculation, by increasing blood flow directly to the penis, relaxing the muscles.
Kava Kava helps to keep the mind clear, and the body ready for action. It specifically helps with anxiety, by relaxing both the body and the mind to stop you from overthinking the situation while also keeping the muscles more in control to prevent premature ejaculation.
You can use all these herbs in a couple of ways. Firstly, you can take them in supplements such as ‘Sexual Overdrive’, you can drink them as a tea, you can infuse them in oil (leave the herbs in the oil for 3 weeks or more), or you can make a tincture, which allows the herbs to infuse into a very strong ancient form of medicine (leave the herbs in 50+ proof vodka for 3-4 weeks, and then strain through a cheesecloth and take a couple of drops a day). Supplements are usually the quickest way to get these herbs into the body as the dry, powdered form of the herbs can be more highly concentrated. However, tinctures can also be extremely strong and you can run the risk of burning or irritating the inside of your mouth and throat. Make sure, when making and using tinctures, to put a few drops into a glass of water and drink this way, to avoid irritating the mouth and digestive system.
