Desensitizing condoms have hit the market in the last 5 years and offer the possibility of relief for many men who are afflicted with the condition of premature ejaculation. This includes 30% of all men at some time in their lives. In this article, I’ll take a critical eye to this invention and determine for you if it lives up to its claims.

What Is It?

This is a standard latex condom with a difference. It can make you last longer thanks to some special gel lubricant on the inside.

How Does It Work?

These condoms contain what is called a gel lubricant in the tip. Actually its not really a “lubricant”, otherwise the condom might fall off! It’s simply a low grade anesthetic gel.

When you roll on the condom, it melts with your body heat and becomes absorbed into the head of your penis – the area that receives the most stimulation from penetrative sex.

Within 5 minutes you will have a dulling in sensation and can therefore last longer.

How Much Longer?

Typically about 5 minutes more is fairly common. Because it reduces your sensations slightly then sex may be slightly less pleasurable even though it is longer. The total pleasure is the same.

If you can imagine sharing some food with someone. Both of you will get the food but the pleasure is not doubled and you each have reduced pleasure. This is the same principle with densensitizing condoms.


This is an example of a short term method that does not cure PE but will give you instant relief. There are many other ways to tackle PE and some are short term and some are long term. Some are natural and some are drugs. Some are better and some are worse.
