About Rising Master

A blog about overcoming sex problems and (hopefully) having a more satisfying love life

Hi! My name’s Ethan Green, the blogger behind Rising Master. I created this site to help people deal with frustrating sex problems and have more satisfying love lives.

Let me explain a bit about myself, and why you might find this site helpful.

My background

The formal part

I obtained a BSc Psychology degree at University College London in 1999. I then worked for a mental health organization in London for 10 years before turning my hand to full-time writing.

The fun part!

What qualifies me to write about sex? The fact that I’ve ‘learned on the job’ for more than 20 years, with many different partners from all around the world.

Let’s call it a combination of experience + a psychological understanding of the body and mind + rich cultural influences.

The painfully honest part

This site isn’t a typical sex blog or male pick-up artist site. Quite the opposite, I hope.

You’ll find some general sex advice, but the main focus is on dealing with the kind of frustrating sex problems that so many people suffer in silence (or semi-blissful ignorance).

I personally struggled with premature ejaculation for many years. It took a long time to accept that I had a problem, and even longer to find decent solutions. Ironically, the only thing that took a long time was dealing with it!

I then had issues with erectile dysfunction following surgery in hospital. It also left me with some epic scars which affected my self-confidence and libido.

Although I think I’ve done a good job of dealing with all of these issues, and now have a very satisfying love life, they can still crop up from time to time. So I remain very interested in trying new techniques and treatments.

What you’ll find on this site

There are essentially three types of article here:

  • My personal experience of coping with sex problems.
  • Detailed reviews of products and treatments.
  • Ideas to try out in bed – both general sex advice and techniques to help with specific sex issues.

I also encourage readers to share their experience and ideas. So some articles have gathered many useful comments over the seven years since I first wrote them.

Why the name Rising Master?

I’d love to tell you I wanted to fuse the concepts of sexual self-improvement, mastery over your body, and the masterful role of a man in a sexual relationship.

But really, the name just popped into my head after a couple of beers one night and stuck. Besides, the domain name ‘besteverprematureejaculationcures.com’ didn’t have the same ring to it, and was probably already taken by a speculative internet marketer in 2005.

A word about my reviews

Writing detailed reviews is a major part of what I do. Here are some points to bear in mind when reading them:

  • I buy every product I review.
  • I test the products carefully with my partner, often many times to better understand them. She seems to agree to sex more often if I tell her it’s for work.
  • In some cases, I will make a commission if you buy through my link, which helps put bagels on the kitchen table. This does not influence my recommendations though.
  • I highly recommend you also read other reviews, especially for treatments that can have side effects. Read other blogs, but also check authority medical websites.

Support for the LGBTQ movement

I write from the perspective of a heterosexual man because I don’t know what it’s like to be a lesbian woman.

However, I’m aware that some of the ideas and issues I discuss are experienced by a more diverse community.

So despite the theme of man + woman that you’ll find on this blog, at the very least I’d like to express in writing my support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer movement.

Stating my support on a core page of my website is the best I can do for now.
