The Squeeze Method

With this method, your partner stimulates your penis until you are close to ejaculation. When you are close, your partner firmly squeezes your penis so your erection partly goes away. The goal is for you to become aware of the sensations leading to climax. Then you can better control and delay climax on your own.

The Stop-Start Method

In this method your partner stimulates your penis until just before ejaculation. Your partner then stops until the urge to climax lets up. As you regain control, you ask your partner to start stimulating your penis again. This process is repeated 3 times. You ejaculate on the fourth time. You repeat this method 3 times a week with your partner until you have gained more control.
