Self-Help: Squeeze Technique

The squeeze technique can be used to prevent premature ejaculation. Just before ejaculation, the shaft of the penis is firmly squeezed between the thumb and forefinger. The squeezing causes the erection to be partially lost, thus preventing ejaculation. Repeated regularly, the exercise can dramatically improve control of ejaculation.

Applying pressure

The thumb and forefinger are used to apply pressure just behind the head of the penis, on the upper and lower sides. This pressure prevents ejaculation.
