Nonpharmacologic therapy may include the following:

  • Efforts to relief of underlying performance pressure on the male

  • Sex therapy (eg, instruction in the stop-start or squeeze-pause technique popularized by Masters and Johnson [1] )

  • Second attempt at coitus – If another erection can achieve be achieved shortly after an episode of premature ejaculation, ejaculatory control may be much better the second time
