Stud 5000 Review

stud 5000 bottle and boxStud 5000 is a desensitizing spray that can help with premature ejaculation by reducing the sensitivity of your penis.

I’ve noticed an influx of new delay sprays appearing online recently, many of which seem to be identical apart from the different name.

What concerns me is the lack of information about who makes them, along with a lack of comprehensive instructions and safety advice. And unfortunately, Stud 5000 seems to follow this pattern.

It does do what it’s supposed to do, so there’s no doubting it works as a numbing spray. However, I did discover a couple of issues which I think are important to bear in mind if you’re going to use it.

So in this review I’ll be talking about my experience using it, as well as some of the key points I think you should know about it.

Who makes it?

There’s no connection between Stud 5000 and the classic spray Stud 100. Despite the similar name, it’s not a new version of Stud 100, and is made by a different company.

Just as I discovered when writing about Climax spray recently, the manufacturer appears to be a pharmaceutical company in India – Universal Life Science.

They don’t appear to have a website though, and I can only find a brief description of the company on a couple of Indian wholesaler websites, such as Indiamart.com.

And strangely for a pharmaceutical company, the email address on the spray’s packaging doesn’t sound particularly professional – universallifescience@yahoo.com.

Ingredients

Stud 5000 contains the most common ingredient of delay sprays – 10% Lidocaine topical anesthetic.

There are no other listed ingredients apart from ‘solvents, excipients & propellants’.

How to use Stud 5000

image of me holding a bottle of stud 5000There’s no instruction leaflet included in the box, so the only instructions are printed on the side of the box and the spray bottle:

Shake well before use…For external use only…Hold the container 10 cm. apart with the arrow on the spray button pointing toward the area of application. Press button repeatedly to spray…Do not use more than five sprays of one second duration each time.

So there’s nothing about where to spray exactly, how long to wait, if you should wash it off and if you can use it with oral sex or a condom etc.

These are important points, so it’s a shame they didn’t include them in the instructions. So if you’re planning on using it, you might like to read my advice about using delay sprays properly.

Here’s how I recommend using the spray

  • Make a test spray on the arm to test the skin reaction. Wait 10 mins.
  • Spray just once onto the penis head and rub it in.
  • Wash your hands.
  • Wait 5-10 mins, then wash your penis with warm water.
  • Turn on the music and have fun with your partner.
  • Decide if you need more than one spray in the future.
  • Don’t use it with oral (more on that below).

My experience using the spray

As always, I tested it on my arm to check how my skin would react. That was fine, but I immediately noticed two things: it has quite a strong smell, and it sprays in a continuous flow, with no metered pump.

Right from the outset both of those points were a disappointment. I think it’s much better to have a metered pump so you can apply roughly the same amount each time. And nobody wants a strong chemical spray on their penis when they’re in bed…

I waited 10 minutes, then had a quick shower to get rid of the smell and any residue. I know from experience that once they start working, you can have a hot shower and wash yourself thoroughly, and the effect will still be there.

I did noticed a light tingling sensation, which is typical of lidocaine sprays. But it was light enough not to cause any concern.

I then called my partner into the bedroom for some testing. She’s used to testing these sprays with me now, so even with music and candles, we still have a laugh about it!

We started with some foreplay, and I was noticeably numb. Not as numb as some sprays make me, but numb enough to know it was working well.

My partner gave me some oral, saying there was still a very faint lingering taste and smell. She described it as almost mint or eucalyptus, but I couldn’t smell that.

5 minutes later and she suddenly announced that she could feel her mouth a bit numb. She asked me if I’d washed properly (thanks!) to which I replied I had, of course. So this was an unexpected issue that we haven’t seen for some time. For whatever reason, it seems the spray wasn’t being absorbed properly by my skin.

She put that aside though, saying it wasn’t too dramatic, and we moved on to some sex. The spray did a good job of keeping the sensitivity down, and as expected, I lasted a little longer than I would do without a spray.

There was definitely some loss of pleasure, as usual with these sprays. But having only sprayed it on my penis head, I still had full sensation on the shaft.

All in all, the effect lasted for around 2 hours before wearing off slowly.

Summary

Pros

  • Numbs well, helping you last longer by reducing penis sensitivity.
  • Takes action quickly – just 5 to 10 mins before sex is enough.
  • Only a light tingling sensation – nothing too strong.
  • Lasts a long time – 2 hours or more.
  • Low price.

Cons

  • No metered pump, so it’s hard to get the right amount.
  • Has a strong smell and taste unless you wash very thoroughly.
  • Doesn’t seem to be good for oral sex.
  • No information about the company that makes it.
  • Lack of instructions or safety information.

Verdict

Stud 5000 appears to be a very basic, generic desensitizing spray. It does provide fast and strong numbing, that much is for sure. But the manufacturer doesn’t appear to have done much more than add some lidocaine to a spray mix, and give it a name that sounds like an already established brand.

My partner and I were both unimpressed with the strong smell and taste. And we were surprised to find it numbed her mouth during oral, even after I’d washed off any residue.

Where to buy

Stud 5000 doesn’t have a dedicated website, and seems to be sold only on amazon.com and amazon.co.uk.

Alternatives

There are plenty of other desensitizing products available. To find out more about them, take a look at my main delay spray article.

  • Have to disagree with some aspects of your review.
    Because it’s aerosol, you spray longer, (at least 1 full second – which is longer than most people think) and it’s easier to get a measured dose. I find the pump sprays sometimes don’t give a full measure, and the spray is very narrow.

    This does seem to work faster, but in my experience it seems to wear off more quickly too.

    I’ve found most of the lidocaine spays to be similar. If you want to reduce the initial tingling when sprayed on, try warming the bottle up first. It’s most likely the suspension agent evaporating off your skin.

    I’ve never had any chemical odours, etc problems or complaints – but I give my knob a good wash with soap and water before oral, so maybe that’s the difference.

    Benzocaine based sprays don’t seem to work as well for me, but I don’t have a “consistent test platform”, if you know what I mean…

    There are a couple of other products you might want to look at.
    Dynamo Delay, another lidocaine spray, but with 13% and Adam & Eve with benzocaine.

    I should note I used Stud 100 first, so I am speaking relative to that product.
    Of the 3 I have used, Dynamo required less sprays due to it’s greater lidocaine content, Stud 5000 as above.
    I also found rubbing them in seemed to lessen their effect in my case.

    It’s a matter of experimentation and common sense for each user.

    • Hi there
      Thanks for adding your view and some food for thought. You’re welcome to disagree with my review, and I welcome other opinions. Having said that, I don’t think you’re right about the aerosol being easier to measure than a metered pump. I’ve tested many different sprays, and the metered pumps always win in terms of getting a similar amount each time as far I can tell.
      I haven’t heard your theory about the suspension agent evaporating off the skin, or warming it up before. As far as I’m aware, the uncomfortable feeling is a reaction to the lidocaine or benzocaine usually.
      I do agree that it’s a matter of experimentation and common sense though. You need to use them carefully, and work out what’s the best system of using it for you personally.

    • Hi G
      It shouldn’t do, and anyway, it’s not a chemical that triggers drug tests as far as I’m aware.

    • Hi Bob
      Most of these sprays have the risk of erection loss. But I agree that this isn’t the best one ever!

  • Hi Ethan: Thanks for an interesting article on STUD5000 spray.
    A couple of issues I don’t agree with you.
    Why not do oral before proper sex (using spay) as even an illiterate person knows that these sprays are a kind of chemicals.
    Apologies for lack of instructions.
    Please advise me to what instructions you would like with the can so that I can advise the manufacturer.

    • Hi VK
      Could you explain your connection with the spray and manufacturer please?
      But to briefly answer your question, a leaflet explaining all the information about the spray would be a good start. If you buy one that’s recognized by medical professionals, like promescent or fortacin, you’ll see what I mean.
      Thanks
      Ethan

    • Hi Neil
      You’re welcome! Well, there are several good ones you can try – I’d recommend Promescent, Fortacin or Stud 100 to start.
      Ethan

  • Thanks for the useful review. I thought this was the latest Stud 100 version, so i’m glad I found this article. Amazing that they used the same name…

    • Hi Tom
      You’re welcome – I’m happy to hear the article was useful. Yes, it’s a bit of an issue with delay sprays and other male enhancement problems these days. With the lack of regulation, there are a lot of rip-offs popping up all the time.

    • Hi Amed
      Thanks for sharing your experience. These sprays won’t work for everyone, unfortunately. Have you tried any others?
