Can the acupuncture be considered a helper in lasting longer during the sexual intercourse? The research isn’t very optimistic, though the practice has been proved effective for long time.
Research: how it was done
The men who complained of their too short sexual intercourse (2 minutes and less) were observed by the Turkish researchers. During one month men experienced eight sessions of acupuncture practices. The acupuncture introduced was divided into two types: the real one and a fake one. The ones who experienced the real one, enlarged the length of their sexual intercourse by 30 seconds in comparison with the ones who faced the fake acupuncture (the needles weren’t inserted the proper way).
Daniel Hsu, currently working as an acupuncturist in New York, the Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture said the following thing: premature ejaculation is linked to the low serotonin, which is responsible for mood changes. Hsu didn’t conduct the study. He also noted that acupuncture enhances the nervous cells which consequently lead to an increase of serotonin and stands behind the ejaculatory control.
The next thing he mentions is that acupuncture leads to the improvement of sexual functions because it banishes the depression and stress. Results may depend upon the acupuncturist who performs the procedures. He also notes that in his experience if the treatment by acupuncture is the proper one, the improvements will appear in 3 sessions.
But the question of the acupuncture being the best sort of treatment or not can not be answered positively. Now let’s look at some recommendations given by the experts. Alan W.Shindel, who has M.D. and is a current urology professor at California University, declares that Food And Drug Administration hasn’t approved any kind of treatment. But according to his words, in general the urologists prescribe the treatment against depression in order to boost serotonin and hold off premature ejaculation. Antidepressants have a tendency to increase the time of ejaculation by 3 to 5 times (but this thing works only for men with the condition of premature ejaculation).
There is something else…
There is one more solution that is normally offered by the urologists: to prescribe the sprays in order to numb the skin of the penis which reduced sensitivity. But the doctor adds that excessive numbing will deprive a man of pleasurable feelings.
There is one more option to consider, but it can’t for sure be called a treatment. Dr. Shindel suggests it makes it easy for you to recognize the moment of getting closer to the point of climax and control the ejaculatory reflex. You may improve your self-control by practicing stops and starts and visualizing elongated sexual intercourse when having sex. It’s useful to stop when feeling the climax to approach and calm yourself down a little.
