The Start-Stop method or technique is a form penis exercise aimed primarily to train one’s sensation to control ejaculation. Such exercise is very helpful for those who are suffering from premature ejaculation.
This is one of the many exercises that are efficient when done regularly and mastered. Start-Stop technique is a good start if one has difficulty with advanced method such as Edging.
The 7 steps outlined here on how to perform Start-Stop method can be performed either with or without a partner. For men who do not have a partner who can perform and practice with the technique, can utilize the first 3 steps.
Although the entire technique is not practiced entirely, this can still help one gain a better control of ejaculation when practice on a regular basis.
On the other hand, men with partners can perform the all the steps including the final 4 steps of the technique since a help or co-operation with the partner is required.
7 Steps To Performing Start-Stop Technique
Step 1: Masturbate using a dry hand.
On this step, while masturbating avoid fantasizing or watching porn. Instead, focus attention on the sensation. Let the pleasurable sensation build-up, then immediately stop stroking or massaging the penis when the PONR(point of no return) is inevitable.
Then, relax while keeping the mind free of fantasies. Wait until the feeling of ejaculation subsides and began the process again.
Continue following the same pattern continuing it for 15 minutes without ejaculating or reaching orgasm. Some men might not be able to do this during the first attempt.
However, as one progresses to the process performing to practice the Start-Stop method diligently and consistently, practicing this technique can improve over time.
You will notice, the more you practice with this technique, the less stop or break you can have in a single session. Once you’ve completed the 15-minute sessions on 3 consecutive occasions(not necessarily performing each session one after the other), you can now proceed to Step-2.
Step 2: Masturbate using lubrication such as jelly to heighten the sensation.
In this step, controlling and delaying ejaculation is more difficult than dry masturbation. Follow the same routine as outlined in Step 1 until 3 15-minute consecutive sessions are completed, just as in Step 1.
Step 3: Masturbate using a dry hand for a full 15-minute session prior to ejaculation.
At this point, a good level of control over ejaculation is gained from the previous routines provided one has diligently performed both routines until the goal is reached. In this step, masturbate for a full 15-minute session solely focusing on the sensation of the penis.
When the point of no return seems to be inevitable, do not stop the stimulation. Instead, vary the rhythm or alter the strokes so that pressure building up to ejaculate subsides.
One must have to experiment the sensation and variation of strokes or rhythm as to which stroke frequency or rhythm provides the highest sensation, and which one allows full control without ejaculation.
Just as with the previous steps, aim to complete 3 sessions either consecutively or separately.
Step 4: Getting your partner involved.
Comfortably lie on your back. Ask your partner to perform masturbation on you using her dry hand as outlined in Step 1. Although this routine is similar to what is outlined in Step 1, it may be a bit difficult as you are not in control of the stroking.
Just as with Step 1, concentrate on the sensation and avoid fantasizing in any kind including your partner. When the feeling becomes intense, and PONR is inevitable, ask her to stop stroking and resume whenever the urge to ejaculate subsides. Again, the aim is to complete or last for 3 15-minute sessions consecutively, or separately.
Step 5: Repeat steps outlined in Step 4.
Step 5 is similar to what is outlined in Step 4, but this time ask your partner to use a lubricant and perform the routine outlined in Step 2. This part is going to be more intense than Step 4. The time you feel to reach near orgasm might occur frequently, and if it does, simply ask her to stop stroking when it happens.
Just as with the previous step, aim for 3 full 15-minute sessions either consecutively or separately. Upon reaching and completing this step, try what you have just gained in actual sexual intercourse. Observe how far have you gained ejaculatory control.
Step 6: Choosing the right position for sex.
This is a perfect time to test how far have you gained control over your ejaculation. Moreover, you have to know the perfect sex position for you to have control over your ejaculation when you reached orgasm. The woman-on-top position is just perfect for this situation.
Talk to your partner letting her know about the position. Once you have penetrated inside her, ask her to move gently in an up and down stroke. In order to let her know that you want her to stop the up and down movement, put your hands on her hips making a sign when to let her stop and resume the movement again.
Just as with the previous steps, aim to complete 3 successive or separate full 15-minute sessions. If you cannot last 15-minutes, that is fine. Just make sure you aim for that long next time.
Furthermore, while doing this with your partner, it is essential to focus on the sensation. Also, do not pay full attention to ejaculation. Instead, you should also focus on your partner and bring her to orgasm.
Never leave your partner without reaching orgasm, either you can give her an orgasm-producing foreplay, or perform oral stimulation on her in case you ejaculated prior to reaching her orgasm.
Step 7: Try different sex positions.
When you’ve completed Step 6, ask your partner you want to try a different position the next time you have sex and see if you have conquered your rapid or premature ejaculation problem.
These are the basics of performing and mastering Start-Stop technique in an effort overcome premature ejaculation. As you probably noticed, overcoming premature ejaculation is a combination of both body and mind control.
Additionally, learn how to relax as it is far easier to control the muscles in the body when they are in a relaxed state. Learn how to focus on sensation and towards your partner. Aim to give your partner an orgasm instead of worrying and focusing on your ejaculation.
Once you have learned to balance these things, you will have full control on your ejaculation. If you feel you need more than just edging, the Squeeze method will cover next to this topic.
The Start-Stop technique is pretty basic, yet very effective when practiced on a regular basis. Of course, you may not be able to get results during the first days or even a week of doing, but the key is consistency.
