Premature Ejaculation Tips – Whatever Happened to Thinking About Baseball?
Judging by the number of articles, blog posts and late night TV infomercials dedicated to the subject, it sure seems like premature ejaculation and baseball are a major concern for many men. To make matters worse, nobody seems to be able to agree on how long the average man lasts in bed! Five minutes? Seven minutes? Less? More? The available studies are all over the map.
Just as inconsistent (and occasionally even contradictory) is the advice men are given to help them last longer in bed. Adjust your diet, they’re told. Get more sleep. Sleep less! Work out in this specific way — no wait, do it like THIS! Gain weight — or maybe lose weight, depending on who you ask.
This jumble of information, misinformation, old wive’s tales and pseudoscience almost has Calico feeling bad for men — almost. At the same time, she’s noticed that when it comes to giving men tips on how to avoid premature ejaculation, it’s women’s publications like Cosmo that have more tips, demonstrating that while this is an issue which directly affects men, it certainly impacts women greatly, as well.
So, what’s a guy who cums too quick to do? Eat more veggies? Special exercises? Put a rubber band tourniquet at the base of his penis? Those answers probably aren’t found in Calico’s latest post, because that’s not how she rolls — but you should check out “Whatever Happened to Thinking About Baseball?” anyway.

Of the many sexual things people joke about, few seem to inspire the level of anxiety in men that premature ejaculation does. Movies and TV frequently draw on this anxiety, sometimes for comic effect, other times merely to mock a loathed character or emphasize his lack of potency.
It’s not all mockery and jokes out there for men who worry about cumming too quick, of course. All sorts of blogs, articles, self-help columns and such are available, offering a wide variety of tips to help men last longer, and not just at watching baseball.
Perhaps predictably, judging by the number of tips offered, Fatherly.com turns out to be on the lazier end of the tip-list-makers, offering a paltry seven suggestions. Men’s Health nearly doubles that total, with a dozen suggestions – the last of which, curiously enough, is “ask an expert.” (To be fair, I suppose if they had put that suggestion first, many men would not read the rest of the post.) Cosmopolitan, on the other hand, offers 16 suggestions, from “Remember that sex doesn’t just mean penetration” to the one-word tip “medicate.”
To Last Longer, Gain Weight… And Lose Weight… Or Something Like That
Among the strangest of the suggestions I’ve found for how men can last longer in bed comes from Healthline.com, which suggests men can last longer before orgasming by… gaining weight?
“A recent study found that men with a higher body mass index (BMI) lasted longer in bed than those with lower body fat and weight,” Healthline reports. “As BMI increased, according to the study, the number of people with premature ejaculation decreased. Those who were overweight lasted an average of 7.3 minutes.”
7.3 minutes may not sound like much, but according to the same article, it’s slightly above the average found in one study of 1587 men, which determined that the “average time a man can maintain intercourse without ejaculating is seven minutes,” while the average for men who suffer from premature ejaculation is two minutes.
And fellas, lest you think this advice means you should sit around eating your way to greater virility, bear in mind that the study showing men benefitted from weight gain had only 200 subjects, who self-reported their results. Also, the very next item on that same suggestion list? Weight loss.
Yes, that’s right – the very next item on the list states that “a greater amount of evidence suggests that being overweight or obese could make your sexual stamina worse.”
What this suggests to me, guys, is that if you can find a way to gain weight and lose weight at the same time, you’ll really have your baseball bases covered.
How Sure Are We About These Metrics, Really?
The Insider article that got me thinking about this, which was published a lot more recently than the others I’ve linked to, seems in some ways only to muddy the premature ejaculation waters further – a phrase that seems a lot grosser now that I’ve written it out on the page than it did when it was still inside my brain, quite frankly.
For starters, the Insider article suggests the average time men last in bed is even shorter than the statistic cited previously, stating that “according to a 2005 study conducted across 5 countries, vaginal sex generally lasts for around 5 to 6 minutes.”
The science nerd in me can’t help but wonder how they come up with these numbers. Are these self-reported by men in a survey? Is someone holding a stopwatch while watching research subjects fuck? Is there something like goal line technology in play here? How long can they last when stimulated by the hated milk machine?
It seems to me that if I want better science around the question of premature ejaculation, I might have to set up a study, myself. And no – that doesn’t mean I’m going to have sex with 1500 random guys in a controlled clinical setting…. because I figure 200 or so should be sufficient.
