Doctors are hailing a new drug that can prevent premature ejaculation extending the length of sexual intercourse. Dapoxetine, marketed as Priligy (among and other brands) is the first compound developed specially for the treatment of premature ejaculation (PE) in men 18–64 years old. Dapoxetine works by inhibiting theserotonin transporter, increasing serotonin’s action at the post synaptic cleft, and as a consequence promoting ejaculatory delay. As a member of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) family, dapoxetine was initially created as an antidepressant. However, unlike other SSRIs, dapoxetine is absorbed and eliminated rapidly in the body. Its fast acting property makes it suitable for the treatment of PE but not as an antidepressant. It is extremely expensive in the Uk, about £70 for three tablets, but no doubt supplies coming from such places as India, will force the price downwards. Dapoxetine is chemically similar to a family of antidepressants called SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors). These types of antidepressants are known to have an impact on ejaculation.
Trials of dapoxetine have shown a trebling of the duration of intercourse. The beneficial effect occurred after the first dose and increased over the study period. Sex educationalist Seb Cox commenting on the research said “Premature ejaculation is a huge problem. All men suffer in varying degrees, and as men we are often very uncomfortable talking about sex, it’s very much a hidden problem. I have been writing for years about the possibility that some anti depressant drugs seemed to have the effect of delaying ejaculation, just as this drug is doing. Now that dapoxetine is available I think it will have an even bigger effect than Viagra on how men have sex, and of course, just like Viagra, few will admit to using it, and the manufacturers would never suggest using it for recreational effect.
Dear Seb__I’ve been a big admirer of your work, so I wanted to contribute a few thoughts on cock rings, for your article:
• On one level, you wear a cock ring to maintain your erection by regulating blood flow. But when I put on a cock ring, I feel like am both physically and spiritually amplifying my “cock-mind”— intensifying the pleasure and pride of having a cock. It’s almost like I’m putting a ring on my cock to really feel married to it.
• I like silicon more, nowadays, because it feels friendlier. In general, I have been moving away from harder, penetrative scenes, toward softer, more “cooperative” ones. Cumming soft, after intense play (sometimes including prostate massage), is my new favorite thing— and I find silicon rings work better for those circumstances. For me, metal cock rings have always been more for public play— bars, sex clubs, and such.
• Size is crucial for the same reason a tailored suit is: every cock, like every body, is unique. The right size promotes optimum awareness without being overly intrusive or restrictive.
• Applying the cock ring correctly means focusing your and your partner’s attention effectively onto the “theater of cock”– which may be small in size, compared with the entire human body, but expansive in scale. In other words, donning a cock ring puts everyone on alert that our cocks are now the biggest and most important things in the room.
• For a long time now I have been shaving my cock and trimming my pubic area, for just this reason: to focus on the theater of cock. Of course, cock rings— especially the silicon kind— are easier to use in a trimmed and shaved area.
• It’s always nice then you meet someone with an entire collection of cock-rings. Sharing them become a lovely extension of sexual hospitality. A sexual host of true generosity might even have several on hand to give as souvenirs— the way Martha Stewart-type hostesses stock guest bathrooms with new toothbrushes that guests can take away. I hope some of this might be helpful. I am wishing you the best for your article and, as always, your amazing work. Best, __Steve
