Climaxagen is a cream that reduces the physical sensitivity of the penis, intended to help men delay ejaculation during sex.
There are many desensitizing products with very similar ingredients, so I’m always interested when one comes along which doesn’t contain the usual benzocaine or lidocaine.
Climaxagen has a few interesting ingredients, which I’ll look at below. And although they sound good on paper, you’ll see later in this review that it wasn’t the best of the over the counter delay products I’ve tried.
Please note that there are two Climaxagen products: male enhancement pills and a delay cream. In this article, I’ll only be discussing the cream version.
This is what the company says Climaxagen cream is composed of:
1. Acetyl Dipeptide-1 Cetyl Ester (ADCE)
This is a skin soother which reduces the perception of stimulation instead of actually numbing the nerves. It’s also found in some cosmetic products like hair conditioners and tanning lotions.
2. Di-PPG 2-Myreth-10 Adipate (DMA)
Their website states that this increases the ability of the nerve endings to tolerate sensations.
It’s used in cosmetics like shampoo and body cleansers, as well as in dish-washing solutions. The purpose is to reduce the irritation that those products cause.
3. Isopropyl Myristate
This is often used in products to encourage absorption by the skin. It may encourage fast absorption of some ingredients, but you’re still left with others on the surface.
They say Lecithin is popular in Europe in the treatment of sexual dysfunction. You can find some sources hinting that Soy Lecithin might help. But you can find an equal number saying it can actually lead to sexual dysfunction.
The inclusion of Niacin could lead to what’s called a ‘niacin flush’. This is when the blood vessels dilate, resulting in a warm tingly feeling and sometimes reddening of the skin. The idea being that you can then get harder erections when more blood flows that way.
It’s also important in the creation of testosterone, though I have no idea how likely that is from applying it through a cream this way.
6. Aloe Vera
Again, included to soothe the skin and prevent irritation. It works for other skin complaints, but how much it helps with premature ejaculation is unknown.
Sometimes used to help improve penis size and erection quality on a temporary basis. There is some evidence for this, and it’s used in erectile dysfunction by some men.
Included to increase circulation. They say they only use a small amount to avoid the tingling sensation that many creams have.
So there’s an interesting mix of ingredients in Climaxagen. Some designed to reduce sensitivity, others to help blood flow, almost as if they wanted to kill both PE and ED with one stone.
Note that Climaxagen hasn’t undergone any tests by the FDA. Equally, the ingredients are all legally allowed to be in the cream and sold in the United States as far as I can tell.
1. It doesn’t contain pharmaceutical anesthetics
The majority of delay creams contain Lidocaine or Benzocaine. So if you have an allergy to those, or don’t like using them for whatever reason, Climaxagen presents an alternative.
2. It makes a good lubricant
I’m not sure it was designed this way, but once the desensitizing elements have been absorbed, what’s left worked well as a lubricant.
3. Money back guarantee
They offer a 30 day money back offer.
4. No obvious side-effects
I didn’t notice any obvious problems when using Climaxagen. There was no burning or itching which is one of the common side effects of delay sprays and creams.
5. Designed to reduce sensation but not to numb
Climaxagen does have a novel approach. Most delay products are designed to simply numb the penis, but the idea behind Climaxagen is to reduce stimulation without numbing. So if it does happen to work for you, then it could be great.
1. Minimal effect
Whenever I test any delay product I do a thorough job and give it a few trial runs with a stop watch at the ready. Unfortunately, I didn’t find that Climaxagen helped much. A couple of times I lasted 2 or 3 minutes longer, but generally there was little or no improvement.
3. The misleading website
When you look at their front page you can’t help notice the section “Climaxagen in the media” with 4 quotes from big name sites like Men’s Health.
But if you look closer you see they are quotes about premature ejaculation, not about Climaxagen. And in fact if you try and find those supposed references to Climaxagen either through their website, or by searching online, you will find nothing. Because they don’t exist.
4. It’s expensive
Climaxagen costs just under $50 for a month’s supply.
Climaxagen might work for some men, but I didn’t find it to be very effective. However, with a money back offer, there’s no harm in trying it. Just because it didn’t work that well for me doesn’t mean it won’t for you.
The concept behind the cream seems logical – don’t go for all out numbing, just reduce the stimulation. So if it does work for you, then you would benefit from still being able to actually enjoy the pleasurable sensation of sex.
