A hospital in Turkey might have found the answer to making conventional sex last longer and it involves tickling your partner’s feet.
The answer to making longer lasting sex could be found literally below the belt. A new study has found that tickling a man’s feet could fix the age-old problem of premature ejaculation. But there’s more to this than meets the eye.
The study used a mild electrical current to do the actual tickling. While this might sound scary, the current causes no pain and is so mild it can literally feel like a ticklish sensation to a man’s feet. Thirty men who struggle with premature ejaculation took part in the study, and they found the treatment increased the duration and made them last longer.
So, how does it work? The current starts at the ankle and goes up the tibial nerve to other parts of the body, including the pelvis nerves that control muscles used for sex. And while the electrical currents work, the scientists want to do more studies since only 30 men were used. More research will prove just how effective the treatment is.
According to Metro UK, researchers are also testing a patch that can transmit an electrical current through the skin to muscles to control ejaculation. The patch is supposedly making sexing for people with premature ejaculation last four times longer. Wow. The patch could be available as soon as June of this year.
The study was conducted at Yuksek Ihtisas Hospital in Turkey. The size of the electrical current was small. If you even think about trying this at home to spice things up, don’t use a defibrillator or other equipment that will produce a larger or more powerful current. If you try it at home, we suggest tickling the old-fashioned way…with your hand.
