Can NoFap Cure Premature Ejaculation, or Can It Cause It?

Debunking the NoFap Myth: The Truth About Premature Ejaculation and Masturbation

There are many online communities that suggest that NoFap (abstaining from masturbation and porn) can cure premature ejaculation. Is there any truth to this claim? Can NoFap help with premature ejaculation? The short answer is “No” – As far as we are aware, NoFap does not cure premature ejaculation. There is no evidence to suggest that NoFap can cure premature ejaculation or necessarily help men who struggle with PE or other sexual issues.

Masturbation is normal, natural, harmless, and in fact, healthy. It’s also incredibly common. One survey found that 94% of men admit to masturbating regularly.

In this article we’ll take a closer look at why NoFap is not the solution for premature ejaculation, and suggest some alternatives.

NoFap can actually cause premature ejaculation

For some men, not only does NoFap fail to cure premature ejaculation, but it could also potentially make it worse.

When you avoid masturbating, it can change how quickly you ejaculate during sex. Here’s why: Masturbation, especially if it’s something you do regularly, can make you less sensitive to sexual stimulation. But when you stop masturbating for a while, your sensitivity can increase, and that might make you climax faster when you have sex.

Another thing to think about is feeling anxious or stressed when you’re getting intimate with a partner. Not masturbating can sometimes make you more anxious or worried about how you’ll perform during sex, and that added stress can make it harder to control when you ejaculate, leading to premature ejaculation.

Plus, when you masturbate, you get to know your body and how it responds to sexual sensations. This self-awareness can help you learn how to delay ejaculation. But if you stop masturbating, you might lose touch with how your body works in bed, which can make it harder to control when you climax.

Remember, everyone’s different when it comes to sex. For some people, not masturbating won’t affect premature ejaculation, but for others, it could make it worse. A lot depends on your own unique factors, like your body, your mind, and your past sexual experiences, in how you respond to changes in your sexual behavior.

Why do people think that NoFap cured their premature ejaculation?

One possibility is that it might be a placebo effect. Premature ejaculation can often be linked to performance anxiety – that’s when you’re worried about how well you’ll perform in bed.

When you try something like NoFap, you may believe it will help you last longer, and this belief alone can boost your confidence. When you feel more confident, you might find it easier to control your ejaculation.

Another possibility is that if you’re used to rushing to ejaculation quickly during masturbation, it’s possible to train yourself to ejaculate early.That means you’ve created a habit of premature ejaculation.

However, if this is the case, there are better ways to address it. Techniques like the squeeze method or the stop-start method can be more effective. These are exercises you can try during masturbation to help you learn how to control your ejaculation and prolong sex. NoFap alone might not be the most effective solution for this specific issue.

How to treat premature ejaculation?

If you’re looking for ways to treat premature ejaculation and want to take control of your sexual performance, two effective techniques recommended by sex therapists are the “squeeze technique” and the “stop-start method.” These methods have been helping men for decades, and research has shown that they can be very helpful.

The squeeze technique and the stop-start method are masturbation exercise that are used to train men to better control their ejaculation and prolong sex.

The idea is to masturbate until you’re getting close to the “point of no return” and then pause and stop all sexual activity. You then wait for the urge to climax to subside before resuming. By doing this repeatedly, you gradually gain better control over your arousal and ejaculation.

During these exercises, you are to pay special attention to the signals your body is sending you, such as your heart rate, muscle contractions, focus, etc. The goal is to develop an awareness of your body’s sexual response during stimulation.

It’s important to note that while the logic is pretty straightforward, to succeed in overcoming premature ejaculation, it’s important to follow a structured training program with different exercises of increasing difficulty. That’s why we created the PE Program – a web app that trains you step-by-step to overcome premature ejaculation using the squeeze technique and stop-start exercises.

What’s great about these techniques is that they empower you to learn how to control your ejaculation naturally. It’s not about relying on desensitizing creams or medications, which can have side effects and may not be as satisfying for you or your partner. Instead, you’ll develop the skills to last longer and satisfy your partner through your own efforts. It’s a rewarding and empowering experience that can enhance your sexual confidence and overall relationship satisfaction.

To sum things up

To sum things up, the idea that NoFap can cure premature ejaculation is not supported by evidence. In fact, for some individuals, NoFap may exacerbate the issue by increasing sensitivity and performance anxiety. Masturbation is a normal and healthy activity, and there are more effective techniques, such as the “squeeze technique” and the “stop-start method,” recommended by sex therapists to address premature ejaculation. These methods empower individuals to gain better control over their arousal and ejaculation naturally, without relying on desensitizing creams or medications, ultimately enhancing their sexual confidence and relationship satisfaction.
