Masters and Johnson
Masters and Johnson were pioneering sex therapists.
They have written several best selling books on sex:
“Human Sexual Response” 1966
“Human Sexual Inadequacy” 1970
“On Sex and Human Loving” 1988
Masters and Johnson developed the “squeeze method” as a treatment to stop premature ejaculation.
The squeeze method involves teaching the man to concentrate and focus on his penile sensations and having the woman squeeze his penis with her hand hard enough to make him partially lose his erection when he is close to ejaculating.
This method is very effective and has been shown to treat premature ejaculation in the majority of men
It is important to set aside regular quiet time to practice the squeeze method regularly. For most couples this is usually 2-3 times a week. It is important to ensure that there are no interruptions. Turn off all phones, including mobiles. Take showers and then lie naked on a comfortable bed. The woman stimulates the man’s penis until he is at the point of ejaculating. The man focuses on his pleasureable penile sensations. The man indicates to the woman when he is close to ejaculating but before the point of ejaculatory inevitability. The women then squeezes the penis below the glans (head) of the penis. Masters and Johnson advised squeezing for about 4 seconds.
The correct grip is important. The woman has her thumb on one side of the erect penis. The thumb is placed on the side closest to the woman. She places her index and middle fingers on the other side of the erect penis. The index finger is above the ridge of the glans penis and the middle finger is below the ridge of the glans penis. The pressure should be applied front to back, never from side to side. It is important that the woman uses the pads of her fingers and thumbs. She should avoid pinching the penis or scratching the penis with her fingernails.
Masters and Johnson explained that the squeeze technique (for unknown reasons) reduces the urge to ejaculate.
Masters and Johnson in their book “On Sex and Human Loving” advised that the the squeeze technique “should not be used, however, at the moment of ejaculatory inevitability – instead, it must begin at the early stages of genital play and continue periodically, every few minutes. The squeeze can be used whether the penis is erect or flaccid, but the firmness of the pressure should be proportionate to the degree of erection.”
Other sex therapists such as Helen Kaplan advised that ” the squeeze method, which was developed by Masters and Johnson, teaches the man to focus on his penile sensations by having his partner squeeze his penis with her hand hard enough to make him partially lose his erection when he is close to ejaculating.”
Masters and Johnson in their book “On Sex and Human Loving” advise that, when the couple begin to have sexual intercourse, “the woman is asked to use the squeeze three to six times before attempting insertion. Once the penis is fully inside her, she should hold still for a fifteen to thirty second period, with neither partner thrusting, and then move off the penis, apply the squeeze again, and reinsert. This time a slow thrusting can begin. Once the man improves his ejaculatory control both partners are taught the basilar squeeze, another version of the squeeze technique, so that intercourse need not be interrupted by repeated dismounting to apply a squeeze.”
The woman squeezes the penis hard enough to abolish the desire to climax. This squeeze is not painful or unpleasant.
The woman then stimulates her partner again until he is about to come. He again tells her that he is about to ejaculate and she squeezes the penis again using the above grip. This process is repeated and on the fourth occasion the man is allowed to come.
It is important that the man focuses on the penile sensations and that the couple are co-operative. Gradually the man learns to delay the time to ejaculation. This usually takes several weeks.
The next step is to move on to sexual intercourse with the woman on top. This is the best position to try first because men with premature ejaculation often find being on top too exciting and stimulating.
The man lies on his back and with the woman on top he slowly and gently penetrates her. She gently and slowly moves up and down. When the man feels that he is about to come he tells his partner or indicates to her. She then stops moving and they lie still. When the man feels that his arousal level has dropped sufficiently he signals to his partner to start moving again. This process is repeated and on the fourth occasion the man is allowed to climax. Gradually the man learns to control and delay his climax. In time the couple are able to have prolonged sexual intercourse. This usually takes several weeks of practice.
The Masters and Johnson method is very effective and in time most men will be able to stop premature ejaculation and have sex for as long as they wish. This takes commitment, a caring partner and regular practice.
Imagine being able to have sex for as long as you want. Your partner will be very happy. Your relationship will improve greatly.
