Sexual Tip #2: The Advanced Version of the Start-Stop Method
Originally described by Semans (1956), the Start-Stop technique is one of the fundamental methods around which all the other ejaculation control techniques are built. Its purpose is to avoid the point of ejaculatory inevitability and get back to a safe level of arousal. This is done by pausing at the highest point of excitement, yet, well before the onset of orgasm.
Many authors who deal with premature ejaculation mention this technique. However, very few advise their readers to combine the start-stop technique with PC/perineum muscle flexing. The advanced version of the technique combines the pause with a tight perineum muscle squeeze while pulling back the coccyx as far as possible.
The squeezing of the PC muscle and the coccyx pull considerably reduce the required duration of each pause. The purpose of the PC squeeze is to make the muscle relax which plays a considerable role in our level of arousal. When one gets to the point of orgasm, the hips are usually pushed forward, whereas with the coccyx pull we are pulling the hips back in the opposite direction.
The start-stop technique can eventually evolve into a combination of pacing techniques, where one simply variates the pace of stimulation instead of stopping. This pace variation can also be combined with PC muscle flexing, for example, tightening of the PC muscle on the exit motion of every stroke.
Another technique that can be combined with start-stop is the penis pull method, which was mentioned in the first video. This is an easy way of decreasing arousal, especially for those who have not yet developed their PC muscle strength.
To develop the strength of the PC muscle, one must only find and practice one of the various Kegel exercise systems available. Named after Dr Arnold Kegel, the American gynecologist who popularized these exercises as a non-surgical alternative for genital relaxation. These techniques have been practiced for centuries however, especially by the Taoists and the Yogis of the orient. In India it is known as the mulabandha, or the perineum lock. Usually it is practiced together with sitting exercises, meditation and pranayama, but there are also Tantric teachings where it is practiced during sex.
The PC muscle squeeze and the coccyx pull are great complementary tools to combine with the start-stop technique and allow for much more effective management of arousal.
