For guys who have trouble lasting in bed, a multi-faceted strategy is often needed to overcome the problem. Not only medication, but exercise and various other strategies can help address premature ejaculation issues. Now comes word that the ancient practice and modern phenomenon of yoga may lead to more stamina in the sack.
According to one study published in the Journal of Sexual Health:
“A group of men, all of whom admitted to regularly having premature ejaculations during intercourse, found that practicing an hour of yoga each day for 12 weeks helped them triple the time they normally lasted in bed.”
For women, The Journal of Sexual Medicine recently reported that sexually unsatisfied women who practiced yoga saw improvements in their sex life, sexual arousal and desire as well as heightened climax. (read complete post)
Another more recent and comprehensive study from the International Journal of Urology states, “Yoga has been proposed as a potential treatment for PE. It has shown efficacy in significantly prolonging the IELT in prospective studies. However, some trials have shown no improvement of PE with yoga in comparison with a placebo.The difference in outcomes could be attributed to longer length of treatment in the statistically significant trials.”*
These findings are still inconclusive and more research on the topic is needed, including “the specific variables of the type of yoga being carried out.”
In the meantime, could it be time to relax and say “om”? It might be worth a try!
