How to Last Longer in Bed?

Wondering how to last longer in bed? If you're after prolonged pleasure, a delay cream or spray could help you.

Delay sprays for men are designed to gently numb the penis and reduce sensitivity. This slight reduction in sensation may let you hold back from climax for longer, and could result in 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, as it can help to alleviate anxiety around premature ejaculation.

How to Use a Delay Spray

Delay creams and sprays are simple to use, and most follow the same method: apply, wait, go!

You simply apply them once you're erect (especially on the ultra-sensitive head) and then leave them for a couple of minutes to allow the numbing agent to start working.

Some delay sprays contain anaesthetics like benzocaine or lidocaine, while others 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.

Which spray or cream you choose and how much you apply are personal choices. You may find that you prefer to use desensitizing 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.

Note: results may vary.
