Antidepressants Help Prevent Premature Ejaculation

Millions of Americans take antidepressants, such as Prozac and Zoloft, to treat depression, anxiety and personality disorders. Several recent studies found they can help men with premature ejaculation. Chinese researchers found that Zoloft plus a sexual technique called four-spot caressing (caressing the tongue, breasts and vulva prior to intercourse) increased ejaculation time. Antidepressant drugs prolonged the time to ejaculation during sex and improved sexual satisfaction. However, there are large individual differences in responses to specific drugs. In some men, antidepressants decreased sexual function and satisfaction. Physicians should carefully monitor psychological and sexual responses in men taking these medications. As for four-spot caressing: try it— even if you aren’t a premature ejaculator. (Zhonghua Nan Ke Xue, 21: 1116-1120,2015)
