More pleasure and fun with a condom
First of all, each condom – even though manufacturers seem to forget about that – reduces sexual pleasure experienced by both men and women. However, that’s not the point. Decreased sensation extends the period of sexual arousal, and thus also the duration of intercourse.
The use of condoms has a positive effect on partners for one more reason. It’s one of the most popular methods to prevent an unwanted pregnancy and the most effective protection (other than abstinence) against a number of sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV. This has a positive effect on the psyche of partners. Additionally, it lessens the risk of focusing on controlling man’s own body, which results in premature ejaculation.
Climax control condoms differ from the traditional ones in the composition – benzocaine is used to produce the first ones. The substance (also called ethyl 4-aminobenzoate and anaesthesin) is an organic compound, a derivative of 4-aminobenzoic acid and ethanol, used as a topical anesthetic. It is used only externally.
Benzocaine is safe (it’s used to cure e.g. sunburn) and often an ingredient in different ointments. When it comes to climax control condoms, it’s located in the area where the glans, which is the most sensitive to stimulation part of the penis, should be placed. This solution really allows a man to delay ejaculation. Condoms generally contain 5-7% benzocaine.
