Serotonin is a chemical produced in your brain, responsible for making you feel comfortable, at peace, and happy.
Lack of serotonin can cause depression, excessive worry, obsessive thinking, less of an interest in things you usually enjoy, low sex drive/libido, difficulty sleeping, irritability…and now it appears that low of serotonin can cause premature ejaculation.
The low levels of serotonin cause anxiety, worry and obsession, which is a toxic combination for anybody trying to gain ejaculation control, but it seems as if there is some physical at work as well.
If you want to learn how to last longer during sex naturally, it might be a good idea to try and observe your level of happiness, worry, etc.
Are you down a lot of the time? Unhappy?… Do you have premature ejaculation on top of all of this?
There are a number of natural things you can do to increase serotonin levels naturally, which in turn may help you to last longer during sex.
- Some exposure to sunlight,
- some exercise (weight training and cardio),
- stress reduction,
- sufficient sleep
- taking a 5-HTP supplement
A natural way to increase serotonin levels are to eat foods high in tryptophan, the precursor to serotonin. High protein foods such as chicken and turkey, as well as bananas, have good amounts of tryptophan.
Also 5-HTP can be purchased in vitamin form, which should lead to a natural increase in serotonin as well (a study has been done, but the results weren’t clear / measured well, in my opinion…)
If your stress levels are high for an extended period of time, this will cause an increase in cortisol, the stress hormone, which in turn will cause a drastic reduction in serotonin, as well as testosterone levels.
This can lead to premature ejaculation, as well as erectile dysfunction issues.
A good indicator that low serotonin levels can cause premature ejaculation is that when a person is on SSRI’s, the latest class of antidepressants that work by maximizing the amount of serotonin in circulation in your brain, delayed ejaculation is usually a side effect.
Before you go off to the doctor to get a prescription for antidepressants, bear in mind that while they may allow you to last longer during sex, common side effects include lack of sex drive, fatigue. as well as various levels of impotence.
I believe I may have genetically low serotonin levels, but have learned to last longer during sex naturally, and completely control when I ejaculate.
In my case, I follow the above guidelines to naturally increase my serotonin production, but more importantly, I’ve developed the proper mindstate to control ejaculation. It’s all about SEEING your arousal levels, and mentally keeping them in check. Not allowing that EXPONENTIALLY QUICK climb towards ejaculation, but rather, keeping everything in control from the beginning, when arousal levels are better to control
There are exercises to train your brain to get into this proper mind-state. Also, certain physical “techniques” should be used during sex, in order to maintain this ejaculation control.
