• If you’re after prolonged pleasure, a delay spray or cream is the ideal way to achieve mind-blowing sex for even longer.

    Delay sprays for men gently numb the penis and reduce sensitivity. This slight reduction in sensation lets you to hold back from climax for longer so you can enjoy longer-lasting sexual pleasure, both alone and with a lover.

    If the worry of achieving orgasm too early on during your lovemaking is affecting the sex you have with your partner, then choosing a good delay spray or cream could be the answer, helping to alleviate anxiety around premature ejaculation and ultimately benefitting your relationship.

    How to Use a Delay Spray

    Delay sprays and creams are simple to use, and most follow the same method: apply, wait, go! Delay creams and sprays are applied once you're erect (especially on the ultra-sensitive head) and then left for a couple of minutes for the numbing agent to start working.

    Super Dragon 6000 Delay Spray 12ml Some delay sprays, including the top-rated Super Dragon 6000 Delay Spray (£15.99) contain anaesthetics like benzocaine or lidocaine, while others such as the best-selling China Brush Delay Solution (£8.99) use natural numbing ingredients and herbal infusions to reduce over-sensitivity. We always show the full list of ingredients on the product page.

    Finding the right level of numbing is important, and remember that less is more. You can always apply more delay solution, but you can’t remove it once it has been absorbed. With any delay spray, you will need to spend some time finding out what works best for you.

    Which spray or cream you choose and how much to apply will be personal choices for you. For example, you may find that you prefer to use Delay Condoms for an extra level of reduced sensation.

    We’re all different, and what works for you might be too much for someone else, and vice versa. If you need a little guidance, take a look at the delay spray reviews by customers who have used them.

    "It was with great relief and (very very) much joy that we found this worked a treat. Just the right balance between lasting time and sensation… Bottom line - buy it. Even if you're not having troubles going the distance go for it anyway, you'll both love it!"
