Answer

Other nonpharmacologic approaches may be helpful. If the male is relatively young and can achieve another erection within a few minutes after a premature ejaculation, he may find that he is much less likely to experience a premature ejaculation the second time. The interval for achieving a second climax often includes a much longer period of latency, and the male can usually exert better control in this setting.

Accordingly, some therapists advise young men to masturbate (or have their partner stimulate them rapidly to climax) 1-2 hours before sexual relations are planned. In an older man, such a strategy may be less effective, because the older man may have difficulty achieving a second erection after his first rapid sexual release. If this occurs, it can damage his confidence and may result in secondary impotence.
