What is EMLA Cream?

EMLA is a local anesthetic cream that effectively reduces sensitivity in the male penis, helping men who suffer from premature ejaculation to last longer during sex.

EMLA cream reduces sensitivity by numbing the penis, making sex more enjoyable, last longer without the worry of ejaculating too early and increasing confidence and sexual satisfaction. To be most effective, EMLA should be applied 20 minutes before sexual intercourse and left on to absorb into the penis. It must be washed off before participating in any sexual activity to avoid numbing of the partner.

EMLA is not a cure for premature ejaculation, however, it can help treat symptoms. The main underlying issue should be discussed with your GP for long term support.



Directions for Emla use

Apply cream directly to penis approximately 15 to 20 minutes prior to sexual activity.

  1. The penis and hands should be washed and cleaned prior to applying the cream.
  2. Apply the cream, allowing the cream to absorb into the skin.
  3. Finally, any residue of the cream left on the skin after the 15 – 20 minutes should be washed off prior to sexual activity.


  • Premature ejaculation and masturbation … are these two connected?

    If practiced in non-harmful or extreme manner, masturbation does not cause any sexual dysfunctions at all. However, if you have developed the habit of reaching orgasm quickly when masturbating, then you can get yourself premature ejaculation just by habit. 

    Make sure to last for long enough time when masturbating, so as not to train your brain to send 'ejaculation signals' too soon.

  • Are there supplements for treating premature ejaculation?

    While supplements can enhance your general health and your boost your performance, there is no specific vitamin, mineral or other supplements that can be used alone as effective treatments of erectile dysfunction.

  • Which doctor should I visit to discuss premature ejaculation and get a prescription?

    You can visit a urologist or a sexologist. You can also consult your family physician or psychiatrist.

  • How common premature ejaculation is?

    Premature ejaculation is the most common sexual dysfunction at all. Nearly 1 in 3 men experience premature ejaculation at some point of their lives, and 1 in 5 men experience rapid ejaculation on frequent basis worldwide.

  • Is there an exercise for early ejaculation … is it helpful?

    There is an exercise to strengthen pelvic floor muscles, called Kegel.

    You start by contracting your pelvic floor muscles, hold the contraction for four seconds, and then relax for four seconds. Repeat the exercise a few times in a row, and try doing it while standing, sitting, walking, etc. Keep in mind that it is a brain exercise mainly, so stay focused on doing it from time to time.

  • How to prevent erectile dysfunction?

    Since nearly all men practice masturbation at some point of their lives, you should always train yourself to last longer when masturbating.

    If you are about to enter a new relationship, you can use Priligy to prevent first-time rapid ejaculation.

  • Does Viagra treat premature ejaculation?

    Viagra is a medication prescribed for erectile dysfunction. It does not affect ejaculation directly and therefore not prescribed for premature ejaculation. However, erectile dysfunction is the main physical cause of premature ejaculation, and therefore your doctor may prescribe Viagra or other erectile dysfunction medications for you.

  • How many Priligy pills do I need to take?

    Only one pill (30 mg) once daily. You should take it 1 to 3 hours before intercourse with one full glass of water. Its effect lasts for around 12 hours.

    Priligy has minimal side effects that can include headache, nausea, dizziness and diarrhea are the most common.


Physiology of premature ejaculation

The exact causes of rapid ejaculation are unknown. However, most physicians choose not to look for a certain cause since the physiological mechanism behind premature ejaculation is known and easily treatable. 

Researches show that most men with premature ejaculation have low serotonin levels compared to normal men. Low serotonin levels cause you to lose control over ejaculation, making you orgasm too soon. Oral medications, like Priligy, act by increasing your serotonin levels and thus enabling you to hold for a longer time. 

Although it is known that low serotonin is the main cause of early ejaculation, what causes serotonin levels to drop is still a mystery. 

Proposed mental causes of premature ejaculation

  • Emotional (nervous) problems
    Emotional problems are the most common identifiable causes of premature ejaculation.

  • Stress, depression, relationship problems and anxiety about sexual performance, all are examples of psychological factors that require managing by premature ejaculation medications and other treatments.

  • Most men feel anxious about their sexual performance when they are about to enter a new relationship. This is a common thing and most men tend to feel too worried about it. Being too worried about experiencing sexual dysfunctions, such as premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction, can, on its own, cause that sexual dysfunction. If this is the case for you, if you are too worried about premature ejaculation at the start of your new relationship, then your physician will prescribe you Priligy to help you cool down and worry less, and to benefit from the serotonin-like action of Priligy that prevents rapid ejaculation from occurring.

Proposed physical causes of premature ejaculation

  • Physical illness or disease
    Although erectile dysfunction (failure to get or maintain a firm erection) and premature ejaculation (reaching orgasm too early) are two different sexual dysfunctions, erectile dysfunction is the main physical cause of premature ejaculation.
    If this is the case for you, then your doctor may prescribe Viagra or other erectile dysfunction medications for you.

    If you have prostatic or thyroid problems and started experiencing premature ejaculation recently, then you should consult your physician, since you might need treatment for your specific underlying causes of rapid ejaculation or treatments for rapid ejaculation as a separate condition.

Other medical causes of premature ejaculation

  • Drug intake 
    Many recreational drugs can cause rapid ejaculation.
