If you haven’t heard of Promescent before, in this review you’ll find out why it’s recognized as one of the most effective ways to deal with premature ejaculation.
If you have heard of it, and want to know if it really lives up to all the hype, I’ll be talking in detail about my experience with it.
I’ve tried all of the most popular desensitizing sprays and creams available in the United States and Europe. And so far I’ve found Promescent to be the most effective and reliable for 3 main reasons:
- It helped me last for between 10 and 20 minutes every time. With no help I was lasting between 1 and 5 on average.
- The numbing agent didn’t cause any loss of erection, and I could still enjoy sex.
- It didn’t transfer to my partner as long as I followed the instructions for wiping it off after applying it, and we could use it with oral sex.
Having road tested so many desensitizing sprays I’ve now become somewhat of an expert on them (I know – what a thing to become an expert on!). So I’ll be talking about both how it works and how it compares to other sprays.
Who is Promescent for?
I think there are a few scenarios when using Promescent is a good idea. If you’re learning long-term training techniques, there will be times when you just want to forget about premature ejaculation and have some good sex.
I know how strong the desire is to be able to last long enough to give your partner an orgasm once in a while. So if you’re still working on developing ejaculation control naturally, Promescent gives you the opportunity to occasionally satisfy your partner.
It also gives you a confidence boost which will help with the motivation to keep practicing the techniques.
It may also be that you aren’t interested in natural techniques, probably for the following common reasons:
- You haven’t had any success with training techniques.
- You don’t have the motivation to practice them for months.
- You simply don’t like the idea of practicing kegels or the start and stop method for months on end.
- You’re frustrated with your sex life and want some help right now.
At the end of the day my belief is that no method is better than any other. Whatever works for you is the right thing to do. So if practicing kegels for months isn’t for you, then Promescent is a great alternative.
I tested Promescent 10 times over a two week period. I didn’t use any other kind of delay aids or techniques during that time; I just used the spray and had the agreement of my partner to keep an eye on the time.
My usual lasting time during penetrative sex with nothing to help delay ejaculation was anything between 1 and 5 minutes on average.
I first tried applying 3 sprays, but found it numbed me too much. This is a typical problem with sprays, so it had me worried it was going to be yet another one which ruined the enjoyment of sex. But with 2 sprays the next time it was fine.
During my tests I found that it extended the lasting time during intercourse to between 10 and 20 minutes on average.
I experienced no side effects at all from using the spray, which was surprising considering how often sprays can cause other issues like tingling or numbing.
We also tested it with oral sex and found that as long as you wipe yourself with a wet cloth first, there was no transference. Bonus!
Importantly, we could both still enjoy the sensation of sex instead of me being too numb to feel anything. Many others I’ve tried strip you of virtually all enjoyable sensations.
As you can probably imagine then, I was impressed with Promescent. It did what it was supposed to do and created no extra problems like transference of the numbing agent or loss of erection. And most importantly I was able to have sex for much longer than with no help.
So as far as temporary cures to premature ejaculation go, this one gets a big thumbs up. It does work out more expensive than other numbing products, but personally I don’t care; this is an area of my life which I’m willing to invest in.
What is Promescent and how does it work?
Promescent is a topical desensitizing spray. This means it’s applied directly to the penis before sex to reduce the sensitivity. The reduction in sensitivity then allows you to last longer before ejaculating.
The ingredient which does the desensitizing is Lidocaine. Lidocaine is also used in some other delaying products, but there’s an important difference with the way Promescent works.
The spray is absorbed by the skin of the penis to reach the nerve endings which are too sensitive during sex. This means it directly reaches the important parts which you need to be calmed down so you can last longer.
It’s the only spray which has been successfully designed this way. The others just work on a blanket numbing principle, which is why they often ruin the enjoyment for the guy.
It’s also good to know that Promescent is approved as a safe and effective by the United Stated Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Using the spray
There are some important points to note when using Promescent:
- It needs to be sprayed around 10 minutes before you have sex.
- The recommended dose is 3-5 sprays. But many guys will find this too strong and actually only need 1-2.
- Make sure you follow the instructions on rubbing the spray in properly to the underside of your penis.
- I found it lasted for around 45-60 minutes before slowly wearing off.
- It works consistently – I found it significantly increased my endurance every time.
- It doesn’t transfer to your partner and reduce their pleasure if you use it right.
- The metered spray bottle will apply exactly the same dose every time. So once you know how many sprays works best for you, you can easily repeat it.
- You can use it on-demand. So unlike taking medication, you only need to use it when you have sex.
- It works quickly, so if you don’t want to tell someone you are using it, you can apply it in the bathroom just before you have sex.
- It’s available without a prescription.
- I honestly didn’t find any cons regarding effectiveness or utility. This is unusual for a delay spray as they often create problems such as too strong an effect, tingling or transference to a partner.
- My only concern was the price. Most guys should find that they just need 1 or 2 sprays in which case the cost shouldn’t be too much of an issue – just over $2 a go. But if you end up needing 3 or 4 sprays each time, it will be more expensive in the long run.
Promescent helped me to control ejaculation surprisingly well. I say surprisingly because so many other products kind of do the job, but always disappoint in one way or another.
It extended my lasting time considerably – from between 1 and 5 minutes with no help, to between 10 and 20 minutes. It had no side effects that I could tell. It didn’t transfer to my partner and numb her like many other delay sprays do.
And it still allowed me to actually feel the pleasure of sex even though it works by reducing the sensitivity. You can apply it just 10 minutes before sex, and discreetly if you need to.
The only downside is that Promescent is more expensive than other brands, but it’s also far superior in my opinion.
