Pelvic exercises have been shown to help men who suffer from premature ejaculation.

Study: Pelvic exercises benefit men who suffer from premature ejaculation

Statistics from the Urology Care Foundation reveal that premature ejaculation affects about one in five American men between the ages of 18 and 59. This condition is characterized by a lack of control over ejaculation, causing the men who suffer from it to reach orgasm sooner than they would prefer when they're engaging in sexual activities. Understandably, this can lead to them feeling embarrassed or self-conscious, though a new study suggests that pelvic exercises may help. 

According to HealthDay News, a team of researchers led by Dr. Antonio Pastore of Sapienza University of Rome taught 40 men who suffer from premature ejaculation how to exercise their pelvic floor muscles and instructed them to do so for a 12-week period. Throughout the course of the study, the average time to ejaculation reportedly increased from 32 seconds to nearly two and a half minutes. 

"Premature ejaculation is a real problem for many men, and any way which we can find to help this condition is welcome," said Carlo Bettocchi, a spokesman for the European Association of Urology, in a press statement. "This method is particularly welcome because it is the sufferers themselves who overcome the problem through their own efforts — which will have additional psychological benefits."

Pastore noted that the effects of this small study will need to be verified in a larger trial. However, he added that the pelvic floor exercises are easy to do and that they don't have any adverse effects.
