Welcome to Rising Master – a blog and resource to improve men’s love lives.
Hi there! I’m Ethan Green, the creator of this website and writer of most of the articles here. Let me tell you a bit about myself and how I might be able to help improve your love life.
I was born in England, studied psychology in London and then worked in mental health for the best part of a decade.
The advice I give on this site doesn’t come so much from my education or work experience though; it’s based much more on the embarrassing failures and joyous successes of my own love life.
I think personal experience is very important when trying to help others. And when it comes to issues in the bedroom (or wherever else you choose!), there’s no substitute for someone who’s been through those good and bad moments of “what on earth just happened?”
In the beginning
Although it’s since evolved, I initially created Rising Master 4 years ago in 2013 because of my struggle with premature ejaculation.
It took me a long time to deal with it – partly because I buried my head in the sand for years, but also because it was difficult to find reliable information or something that actually helped.
I’ve now learned a lot about the problem and experimented with a wide range of treatment options. So I think I have a very good understanding of what’s needed to develop good sexual stamina, as well as what’s best avoided.
So if that’s the reason you found this website, hopefully my experience and advice will help you find a safe, effective and lasting solution.
Although premature ejaculation was the catalyst for Rising Master, I’ve picked up one or two other problems along the way, as well as learning a thing or two about the fairer sex.
I’ve had testicular cancer (I’m all clear now), problems getting an erection, sexual performance anxiety and one or two knocks to my self-confidence because of life’s unexpected curve balls. Considering this unexpected assault on my manhood, fortunately I think I’ve done a good job of dealing with these issues.
Most guys will experience ups and downs during their sexual life, and rarely will anyone ‘perform’ perfectly every time they have sex. So if you do end up having difficulties at some point, I might be able to point you in the right direction for dealing with them.
And if you’re simply looking for tips to help you become a better lover, I’ll be glad to impart my experience and knowledge in the hope that it’s useful to you.
How I do reviews
Although most of my articles are purely informational, I also enjoy writing reviews and feel they are a useful part of the website.
I’ve personally tried every product you’ll find a review for here, and usually more than once to give it a fair trial – unless it’s clearly not great from the outset.
I know there are a lot of clever marketing ploys and exaggerated claims in the sex product world, so I pride myself on thoroughly testing and honestly reviewing products.
And if it’s a treatment for sexual dysfunction, I also do careful research into its background. I check scientific journals and research to see if there’s any evidence supporting the treatment or the claims of the manufacturer. And I do what I can to check the product is safe to use, pointing out cases where it’s not.
And if I don’t get anywhere that way, I’ll usually ring or write to the company to ask them for more information. And on that note, if there’s the offer of personal support or feedback, which often comes with eBooks for example, I always check if that’s true or not.
And in the spirit of transparency, in some cases – though not all – I do have an affiliate connection with the product. So if you buy it through my link, I’ll make a small commission. Please note though that this doesn’t impact on my choice of recommendations.
In some cases (the terrible penis enlargement guides are a good example!), I don’t even provide links because I wouldn’t want a friend to waste their money on them, so I don’t want my readers to either.
Thanks to some friends
Although I wrote most of the articles here, I’m lucky enough to have trustworthy friends who help out with some of the topics. I’ve also asked a couple of them to test out some of the products I’ve reviewed to get a second opinion.
Perhaps most important of all are the sex advice articles, written by Karen. Like most women, she has experience of being with guys who are struggling either with specific issues or who just need some clear advice about pleasing women.
When writing her articles, Karen also spoke openly with her friends to get their thoughts. So you really are getting a great insight into the views of women.
Some of it might make you feel like you have a lot to work on. Perhaps not. But don’t miss the opportunity to find out what women really think, feel and want in bed.
A great sex life awaits you
All that remains is to wish you the very best in your journey towards a better love life. Whether you’ve come here looking for advice about a specific problem, or are looking for ways to better satisfy your partner, I hope you find something that helps.
