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. It has been said that yoga may effectively treat premature ejaculation in some men.
“Mindfullness” and Yoga focus on the awareness of the present moment in order to release tension, stress and anxiety. The idea of awareness of the “now” increased awareness of the body which eventually led to sexual goals in many yogis.
In 2007, The Journal of Sexual Medicine published a report in which 68 Indian men who suffered from premature ejaculation were given a choice of yoga-based, non-pharmacological treatment or Prozac. The men who chose yoga as a form of treatment, and practiced for an hour each day, “had both subjective and statistically significant improvements in their intra-ejaculatory latencies, similar to participants in the pharmacological treatment group.”
