Are Desensitizing Creams for You?

Are Desensitizing Creams for You?

If you spend much time watching late-night television or receive much spam in your inbox, you have probably run into advertisements for desensitizing creams. These creams are aimed at men, to help them avoid premature ejaculation and prolong arousal. Although they do work much as advertised, there are some important things you should know about desensitizing creams before you decide if they are the right choice for you.

Desensitizing creams work by creating a slight numbing effect wherever they are applied, much in the same way that a tooth pain gel works. This means that the man will feel sensations less strongly, preventing premature ejaculation by lowering the pleasure factor. And therein lies one of the biggest arguments against these creams. By reducing the sensation, they can easily reduce the amount of pleasure, which is generally the reason for the activity in the first place!

Another thing to keep in mind with desensitizing creams is that when a man applies one to himself, he can easily transfer the cream to his partner. This means that she too will experience some of the same numbing sensation, which might not be a pleasurable or desirable experience for her. This can be avoided by using condoms to prevent the spread of the cream, which can even further reduce sensation for the man. In some cases, this combination of desensitizing agents can actually leave a man with the opposite of the problem he was trying to solve.

Desensitizing creams can be seen as a quick fix to a problem; but if the problem is a constant one, then it is probably better to seek a more permanent solution. For occasional issues with premature ejaculation, keeping a cream on hand might be a good way to go. If the problem is one that arises every time, however, it’s a good idea to look at some of the exercises and other methods out there than can help a man gain more control and stop premature ejaculation in the long-term.

Desensitizing creams aren’t generally dangerous, and they won’t affect the function of a condom. In some cases, however, either the man or the woman might be allergic to ingredients in the cream, causing skin reactions that can be extremely unpleasant considering the location of the reaction. If you plan to use one, be sure your partner is aware ahead of time. While it might be a bit of an embarrassing conversation to have, it’s a lot better than finding out she is allergic when it’s too late.

The best way to find out if desensitizing creams are right for you is to give them a try and see how it feels. Try putting the cream on when you don’t plan to engage in sexual activity, and just see how it feels to you. Some men don’t like the feeling immediately, and if you are one of them, there is no point in continuing their use. Again, be sure to talk to your partner before you decide to test out the cream in a sexual situation.
