A staggering 31% of men between 18 and 56 years of age suffer from premature ejaculation, and a further 85% of these men prefer to keep quiet about their problem, according to a study carried out by the National Health and Social Life Survey (LNHES).

Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint. It occurs in men when semen leaves the body (ejaculate) sooner than wanted during sex causing distress for both parties involved.

International guidelines define premature ejaculation as regularly ejaculating within one minute of entering your partner.

Fortunately, there are a number of ways you can overcome this condition.

Self-help methods

According to the NHS, self-help methods can include:

  • Masturbating one to two hours before having sex
  • Using a thick condom to help decrease sensation
  • Taking a deep breath to briefly shut down the ejaculatory reflex (an automatic reflex of the body, during which you ejaculate)
  • Having sex with your partner on top (to allow them to pull away when you're close to ejaculating)
  • Taking breaks during sex and distracting yourself by thinking about something completely different.

With help from toys

A team of sexologists, urologists and scientists have also found a novel way to help combat the premature ejaculation problem.

MYHIXEL methods combine an anonymised app and a lifelike device which is designed specifically to achieve climax control.

Following clinical trials, they have found that this MYHIXEL MED solution can help men control their climax up to seven times longer in an easy, comfortable and fun environment, without resorting to drugs, anaesthetic creams or numbing treatments.


Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) can be used if self-help techniques do not improve the problem.

“SSRIs are mainly used to treat depression, but one of their side effects is delaying ejaculation,” says the NHS.

The national health body added: “Dapoxetine is an SSRI specifically designed to treat premature ejaculation and can be used ‘on demand’.

“You'll usually be advised to take it between one and three hours before sex, but not more than once a day.”

The good news is most symptoms of premature ejaculation are not serious.

In fact, with a few simple tips and products you can get your sex duration back on track and keep all parties involved satisfied.

Patricia López Trabajo, Founder of MYHIXEL said: “We are proud to present the most revolutionary scientific method that exists to care for male sexual well-being, through the control of ejaculation.

“This has been made possible by joining an iconic stimulation device with a specific program of activities through our app".
