You can quickly search the internet for “pills that help you last longer in bed” and you’ll find over 150 million results. The industry is littered with magic pills to help you maintain control and orgasm when you want. The truth about pills: 99% of them don’t work. And the 1% that do work, don’t work very well.
Here’s why pills fail: when a guy I’m shooting a sex scene with takes a pill, I end up sitting around waiting until the pill kicks in…this is NOT a turn on for women. Not only is it inconvenient, it’s only a band aid to the real problem.
I’ve also been with guys that use creams or “delay sprays” to help them last longer. I can’t say this lightly enough: stay far away from these. Here’s how they work…you rub the cream on your penis before sex to numb the sensation and help prevent orgasm. These creams and sprays are loaded with lidocaine, commonly used by dentists. A few of the risks for using lidocaine:
1) You can have an allergic reaction and go through days of pain, risking permanent damage. The creams can also easily be passed to your partner's skin, putting her at risk!
2) You can permanently lose feeling in your penis. Guys who overuse the sprays and creams eventually won't have any feeling in their penis at all!
3) It is extremely unsafe to ingest lidocaine. You can seriously damage your intestines and become sick for weeks or months. This means there is no chance of oral sex after application.
All around, it’s best to avoid any kind of cream or spray, I’ve seen the horrible results first hand. Trust me, you don’t want to risk it with these.
