Premature Ejaculation Condoms

I usually do not recommend that you use premature ejaculation condoms (also known as delay condoms or climax control condoms), but I do believe that you should make your own choices based on solid information, so on this page you’ll find all the info that matters to you about PE condoms.

What are premature ejaculation condoms?

They are basically condoms which are especially manufactured for men who ejaculate prematurely.

How do they help to prevent PE?

There are different ways how these condoms help to delay ejaculation. Some condoms are simply just thicker, thus reducing the friction and other sensations you have when you have intercourse. Other condoms actually contain a chemical which temporarily makes the skin of your penis a bit numb.

What chemicals are used to numb the penis?

Delay CondomsThey often contain benzocaine on the inside of the condom. This is a local anesthetic that is often used to relieve pain. There are possible side effects when using benzocaine on your skin, among them allergic reactions (itching, hives, swelling, tingling sensations, headache, etc.). In rare cases benzocaine can also cause methemoglobinemia, which is a serious blood disease.

Is the numbing effect immediate?

Now when the numbing of sensations is simply caused by a kind of thicker rubber, then yes, of course. But if benzocaine is used to reduce sensations, then it usually takes 1-2 minutes until the numbing effect really sets in after putting on the condom.

Can I just use two condoms on top of each other?

You surely can do that, but I advise you against doing that. One issue is that when you wear two condoms on top of each other, it creates additional friction (rubber with rubber) which can cause your condoms to tear or break.

There’s a famous sex study by Dr. Alexa Albert about condom use of commercial sex workers, which kind of makes a different point, however, I do advice against this practice.

Which PE condoms shouldn’t you use?

This is just my personal opinion, but I do not recommend the Trojan Extended Pleasure Condoms because the chemical that is used to numb the penis can also numb the vagina of your sex partner (causing her to feel less excited), because the chemical is not just on the inside of the condom, but everywhere.

What’s the best PE condom?

 Among the best delay condoms are Durex Performax Condoms, which are made from natural rubber latex and are electronically tested.

What’s a better than climax control condoms to last longer?

One issue I have with delay condoms is that they simply don’t help to fix the underlying problem. You still will cum too soon when you don’t use something to numb your penis. It’s way better to train yourself to last longer naturally, so that you don’t need to use some kind of chemical. You can find out more about how to train yourself to last longer in Sexual Stamina Secrets (and yes, it’s free).

    Wonder why they can be so stupid to put the benzocaine both inside and outside? That’s just ridiculous…

      It’s a lot easier in terms of manufacturing and packaging (and saves cost), but it definitely is not something they’re doing their customers any good with.

    Is it dangerous to use these benzocaine condoms every day? Will it somehow make my penis less sensitive permanently?

      @Guy: I haven’t read any scientific research about this. But I think there are better ways of treating PE in the long term than using these condoms. That’s what I talk about in the Sexual Stamina Secrets.

    I found the Durex Play Longer lubricant also to be quiet helpful.

      @Jon: I think they have the best PE condoms, but then I don’t think PE condoms are a good idea in the first place.

    it’s true, durex numbs only your penis, and there again mostly your head, which is good, it helps you to last longa.

    These condoms really help for premature ejaculation, but what I don’t like is that my orgasms are less intense when I use them…

      @Mate: You’re right, and even if it weren’t for the “smaller orgasms” I’d still not recommend using them as a permanent solution.

    I tried them both not good at all. They made me lose my erection! But without them I cum too quick. It’s messed up!!!

      @Ghostbuster: I get the dilemma you’re in. But why do you even hold on to PE condoms? They’re not what I recommend to deal with this problem anyway. Instead, invest a little bit of time and effort into beating premature ejaculation permanently, then you won’t need any tools or special gimmicks.

    Just masturbate before having sex and you’ll last longer.

    I just use two condoms on top of each other. Works fine and is still cheaper than this fancy special condom. And there is no embarrassment when buying it. I don’t want the staff to know, it’s none of their business after all. I think they take me for a stud anyway, because I always buy them at the same store, and they see me buying all these condoms all the time. Plus, it is safer than wearing just one condom!

    You might want to read this:

    FDA Warns – Do NOT Use This Pain Reliever… You Could Turn Blue and Die
    The FDA has notified healthcare professionals and patients that they are receiving reports of methemoglobinemia, a serious and potentially fatal side effect, associated with benzocaine products.

    The condition can occur when benzocaine is used either as a spray used during medical procedures to numb the mouth and throat, or as over-the-counter gels and liquids used to relieve pain from conditions such as teething and canker sores.

    Methemoglobinemia is a condition in which the amount of oxygen carried through the blood stream is greatly reduced. In severe cases, methemoglobinemia can result in death.

    avoid any kind of thin or extra sensitive condom, they make you cum even quicker!!!

    They are effective contraceptives for sure. But they didn’t help me to stop premature ejaculation. I still ejaculated too quickly. Is there another thing you recommend? (I used Durex, which is already the one you recommend out of the two…)
