How to Deal with Sex Problems/Too early


A lot of the time I 'arrive' too early during sex. Would it be safe to use lidocaine on the head of my penis then put on a condom or would it erode the condom like lotion?

There are some products for premature ejaculation containing benzocaine in a diluted concentration.  I don't know how you'd get hold of lidocaine unless you're a doctor or dentist.  Some men find those delay sprays with benzocaine work.  I don't think they'd cause any harm.  But don't use a higher strength benzocaine like in a dental preparation.  Look for a brand that says it's condom safe.

Feel free to ask me more questions!
