According to an article published in the Asian Journal of Urology (February 21, 2022), Lebanese researchers used electricity to stimulate the "dorsal penile nerve" (the nerve that collects movement and sensory information transmitted from the male organ) in one patient suffering from premature ejaculation.
Dr. Mohammad Moussa, a urologist at Lebanese University, and his research group conducted an experiment on a 28-year-old man suffering from premature ejaculation.
The average time of this man was 40 seconds, and he was actively seeking special treatment, which made him a willing subject.
And what was done was this electroshock therapy. Electrodes were attached to his figurine three times a week, and electricity was applied to it for 30 minutes each time.
Premature ejaculation, which causes awkward relationships with partners, is a rather common sexual dysfunction that affects 4–39% of men.
Since it is rarely reported due to embarrassment, the actual number may be much higher.
Therefore, electroshock therapy stimulates the "dorsal penile nerve" in order to delay muscle contractions caused by intercourse.
Six months after the start of treatment, the duration of intercourse increased to an average of 3.9 minutes.
The electroshock treatment had an immediate effect, and the effect was still sustained six months after treatment. In fact, 15 months after the start of treatment, his bed performance had increased sevenfold to an average of 4.9 minutes.
According to the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Efficiency, the average bed performance of men in general is 5 to 7 minutes, which means that they recover to almost the same level as others.
Although electroshock therapy sounds scary, it has fewer side effects and is less expensive than the conventional treatment of premature ejaculation with drugs.
Most importantly, it can actually relieve anxiety and restore confidence in men who have problems with their nighttime activities.
However, it is not yet fully understood why this works for premature ejaculation.
However, the success of this study has prompted the research group to further investigate the safety and cost-effectiveness of electroshock as a new, drug-free treatment for premature ejaculation.
A healthy and satisfying sexual life is said to have a variety of benefits, including weight loss, pain control, improved sleep, improved brain and heart function, as well as an increased sense of well-being.
