How to get rid of unwanted erection?


Controlled erection means a man’s ability to control this process through volitional effort. The task is not simple: hardening of the penis occurs after filling the cavernous bodies with blood, but the brain gives all the signals. In the nucleation of the impulse, several body systems, factors of psychology and the male unconscious participate.

It is the latter that causes particular difficulties: the subconscious mind is difficult to control, nevertheless, you can master some techniques, as well as resort to means that will allow you to extend or "pay off" the erection at the right time.

When and why is it necessary?

Control of an erection can be expressed in 2 varieties:

  • Suppress sudden excitement that occurs out of place or out of time,
  • Extend the period of hardening of the penis.

It is necessary to quickly and quietly suppress an erection:

  • At the doctor,
  • In crowded places
  • At parties and receptions,
  • On a date or just when meeting a girl who is currently not inclined to sex.

Extending the erect state of the penis is required if the man knows about the characteristics of his body to quickly lose excitement. The reasons for this reaction may be:

  • Emotional stress and stress,
  • Intense mental or physical activity,
  • Fatigue syndrome
  • Situational feeling of fatigue,
  • Complicated relationship with the partner, distrust,
  • Suspending factors at the time of an intimate act,
  • Low self-esteem,
  • Fears of failure.

Also, it is recommended for men suffering from:

  • Neurological syndromes,
  • Chronic diseases of an infectious nature,
  • Pathologies of the heart and blood vessels,
  • Congenital genetic defects in the development of the urinary and reproductive organs.

The ability to control allows you to avoid incidents, embarrassing situations and possible ruined relationships.

Can a man control an erection and how?

Having resorted to a number of means, a man can learn to control an erection. The main methods:

Using various techniques, you can both suppress and delay an erection. Let's talk about this in more detail.

To suppress arousal, it is recommended:

  • Put your hands in your trouser pockets and compress them into fists, this reduces the level of excitement,
  • Hold your breath as long as possible - the brain switches from the sexual sphere to providing the body with oxygen,
  • Switch thoughts to solving complex current problems, from decision making to formulas from the exact sciences. An alternative is to remember and ponder negative situations of significance,
  • Long shirts and sweaters are an auxiliary way. They allow you to visually make an erection invisible, while a man consciously suppresses it,
  • If the situation allows, you can take a contrast shower with a predominance of cool water,
  • A mug or glass with cold liquid in your hands also reduces erection,
  • If possible, do squats or a short run in place,
  • Drink a little alcohol - alcohol contributes to the outflow of blood from the genitals.

To maintain the hardness of the penis in the following ways:

  • Extend the prelude as much as possible, playing with the degree of own excitement,
  • Regularly perform 2 exercises: raise the pelvis so that at the upper point the load falls on the shoulder blades, bend the legs at the knees and with the help of the hands bring them together and raise them, keeping the feet pressed against each other. Exercises should be performed 10-15 times,
  • Get rid of extraneous thoughts, fully focus on the partner, her beauty, breathing,
  • It is also possible to prolong the erect state by gently squeezing the frenum.

Auxiliary drugs

With the help of medications, a man can control an erection, renewing it or suppressing it. To a greater extent, pharmacy medicines help prolong the duration of arousal and avoid early ejaculation.

In the first place are the tablets of Viagra, Levitra, Cialis and their generics. Taking the pill provides an erection for a certain period of time, from 4 to 12 hours. However, these funds are intended more for men with severe erectile dysfunction. All inhibitors have a significant list of contraindications and a list of side effects. As a result, the benefits of control can be significantly less than the harm done to the body.

The herbal remedy Laveron is also highlighted, providing long-term hardening of the penis due to the temporary strengthening of the necessary muscles. Cooling creams, for example, based on lidocaine, can also increase the time of excitation.

Numerous dietary supplements will be effective, which contain components aimed at prolonging physical arousal.

It is also possible to suppress an unwanted erection with the help of drugs, but in most cases, there is a risk of an irreversible process:

  • Hormonal drugs. A long reception leads to complete impotence. Admission is permissible only according to indications
  • Antidepressants. Some lower testosterone levels, which reduces the likelihood of spontaneous arousal. Sold only by prescription, negatively affect many body systems,
  • Pressure regulating agents. Prescribed for chronic hypertension. They prevent an erection, but a long intake as a result may require treatment for sexual dysfunction,
  • Sedatives specially designed to lower potency. Suppress the impulses transmitted by the central nervous system. After the course, the recovery is quick and without complications,
  • Tablets with antiandrogenic property. Reduce libido and androgen levels, but adversely affect the liver and other organs.

It is necessary to control spontaneous erection with the help of pharmacy drugs very carefully and under the supervision of a doctor, so as not to harm your own body.

Folk remedies

Of the folk methods that suppress an erection that arose at an uncomfortable moment, first of all, mint-based teas or valerian extract are distinguished. The latter can be purchased at the pharmacy and taken according to the instructions. Mint tea should replace the usual.

It should be brewed according to the following scheme:

  • 4 mint leaves pour boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain the water. Wait until the liquid in the kettle cools to 80 degrees. Pour water on leaves and leave for 10 minutes. Brew the finished tea leaves with tea in any proportions and drink,
  • Combine 1 to 1 fresh mint and tea of ​​any variety, green is also suitable. Put in a teapot, pour boiling water. Leave for a quarter of an hour. Drink throughout the day like tea.

Also to cope with increased potency help:

Along with a decrease in craving, the reaction of brain activity also suffers.

Many folk recipes containing herbs for the treatment of sexual weakness will help establish control over the duration of an erection. Among them:

In an effort to control an erection, it is necessary to remember that most methods will not work the first time and require regularity in order to gain the ability to manage the situation. When resorting to drugs and plants, it is important to get the approval of doctors.

What is an erection?

An erection is an enlargement of the penis that develops as a result of filling his cavernous bodies with blood.

An erection does not always occur as a reaction to an exciting stimulus, sometimes there are no reasons for its development.

Depending on the causes (or lack thereof), 3 types of erection are distinguished:

  1. Psychogenic. It is activated by exciting images in the mind or through action on the senses. For example, smelling familiar perfumes or hearing a song with which special memories are associated. If arousal arises only from an erotic image - this is also a psychogenic type. For a psychogenic erection, it is characteristic that there is no effect directly on the genitals or other erogenous zones. In this case, the excitation is completely controlled by the human limbic system.
  2. Reflex. The most commonly encountered species. It arises as a reaction to touching the genitals. In this case, the nerve endings of the skin are activated, and is responsible for stimulating the reflex type of the spinal cord.
  3. Involuntary. This view is associated with the most inconvenience. Involuntary excitement in a public place is always uncomfortable. And not all adolescents understand that in this case an erection does not occur due to exciting images in the mind or touching the genitals. It occurs spontaneously, for no reason.

How to remove an erection

There are several ways to remove an erection if it does not occur on time, spontaneously or brings discomfort:

  1. Physical exercise. In order to reduce blood filling in the genitals, it is necessary to increase blood supply in the muscles. It is not necessary to perform special exercises. Squat, push up, run. It does not matter which way to choose, the main thing is to contract muscles and provide them with plentiful blood supply. If it is not possible to do exercises, you can statically strain the thigh muscles.
  2. Exposure to cold. Another way to reduce the blood supply to the penis is to take a cold shower. If it’s not possible to take a shower, attach a cold object to the inguinal region.
  3. Go to the toilet. Emptying the bladder may help, as an overflowing urine bladder compresses nerve endings.
  4. Masturbation. The most natural way to get rid of an erection is through masturbation. After ejaculation, excitement subsides, blood flows from the cavernous bodies and the size of the penis decreases. Of course, such a method is unacceptable in a public place.
  5. Switching attention. You don’t have to think about something disgusting, you can just be distracted by another lesson. It is enough to concentrate on the game or a difficult task, you can just watch an exciting film (non-erotic content).
  6. The use of pain stimuli. In order to switch attention, you can use mechanical methods, for example, pinch yourself.
  7. Wait in a quiet place. If there is an opportunity and time, then you can just wait in a secluded place. But if an erection lasts more than 2 hours, is not removed by the above methods and is accompanied by painful sensations - this is an occasion to seek medical help.

How to hide an erection

If you can’t get rid of an erection, or you are in a public place where it is impossible to use the above methods, you can hide it:

  1. Cross-legged The easiest method is to cross your legs. If it is possible to occupy a sitting position for a long time, in this way you can prevent others from observing the enlargement of the penis.
  2. Cover with a bag or other things. If there is no possibility to sit for a long time and you need to leave, then you can cover the groin with a bag, jacket, folder with papers or something like that.
  3. Put on a long shirt. If the situation arose after visiting the gym, pool or other place where there is an opportunity to change clothes, put on a long T-shirt or shirt. Thus, the tissue will cover the inguinal region, and no one will notice the enlargement of the penis.
  4. Bandage the waist with a jacket. If the sleeves of the jacket are thrown over the groin area, the erection will become invisible to others.
  5. Lock with a belt. If the pants have an elastic belt, then you can lift the penis to the waist and fix it in this position using the belt.

Causes of Accelerated Erection

Erection, ejaculation and orgasm are the result of the transmission of impulses from external receptors to internal ones. The duration of sexual intercourse and the brightness of orgasmic sensations are regulated by the complexes of the reproductive centers in the departments of the nervous system. When one or more of them fails (excessive activation), this leads to a quick erection and premature ejaculation. The causes of violations are divided into physiological and psychogenic. Intoxication of the body (alcoholism, drug addiction, harmful production), prolonged therapy with a number of drugs (Amitriptyline, Methadone, Ephedrine) can provoke and aggravate the problem.

Psychogenic factors

Even a single case of premature ejaculation is capable of forming a conditioned pathological complex in a physically healthy but suspicious man, leading to the development of neurosis. Attunement to unsuccessful sexual contact occurs long before the process, the subconscious mind is not able to free itself from a known feeling of guilt in front of a partner. A similar reflex is produced with too frequent masturbation or sexual intercourse.

Accelerated erection occurs due to nervous exhaustion or because of the habit of quickly completing an act performed under conditions of constant nervous tension. The root of the problem can come from adolescence, when a negative attitude to intimacy as something shameful was instilled, which should not be enjoyed for a long time.

There is no universal method how to get rid of a quick erection of psychogenic origin. The success of the treatment depends on mutual understanding with the partner, the qualifications of the doctor and the patient’s own mood.

Physiological factors

A man has two main receptor zones responsible for the rate of ejaculation:

  • external - the head of the penis,
  • internal - the seminal tubercle, which is a protrusion in the part of the urethra that passes through the prostate.

When blood circulation is stimulated in these areas, ascending impulses are transmitted to the central nervous system sections responsible for ejaculation. Inflammation of the seminal tubercle (colliculitis) or the glans penis (balanitis) provokes an increase in impulsation (hyperreflection), resulting in accelerated ejaculation. A similar, but less pronounced effect occurs against the background of posterior urethritis and the inflammatory process of the prostate vesicular complex, including the prostate and vesicles (seminal vesicles).

Premature ejaculation caused by the above diseases is accompanied by additional symptoms:

  • the problem is acquired in nature, previously the duration of sexual intercourse was sufficient,
  • ejaculation is possible before the start of frictions,
  • periodically full-time sexual contacts occur
  • condoms and anesthetic-containing lubricants do not matter,
  • orgasmic sensations are blurry, sometimes painful.

Congenital and acquired hyperesthesia (high sensitivity) of the glans penis, too short frenulum, phimosis (too narrow foreskin) can also cause accelerated erections.

For the normal duration of intimate contact, it is important that the impulses translated by the receptor zones are correctly perceived by the sexual centers located in the brain and spinal cord. Neurological dysfunctions leading to early ejaculation:

  • paracentral lobule syndrome - a malfunction of the cortical parts of the brain responsible for sexual reflexes. Concomitant symptoms: frequent urination, bedwetting, pathological emissions,
  • violation of the reaction of the cerebrospinal sexual centers (hyperreflexia) located in the lumbosacral segment, which entails the development of pathological conditioned reflexes. The reason may be the increased excitability of the centers, due to the characteristics of the sexual constitution of a particular man, or in diseases, for example: destruction of the intervertebral discs, multiple sclerosis, infections,
  • pathology of the hypothalamic-pituitary complex. Accompanied by impaired functioning of organs having a glandular and smooth muscle type of tissue: genitourinary, digestive, cardiovascular system. Emotional disorders are characteristic: hysteria, depression, asthenia, neurosis.

Identified additional symptoms can provide the right direction for finding the cause of a quick erection.


A urologist, sex therapist, neurologist, psychologist can help a man fight the problem of short intercourse. The doctor interviews the patient, identifies additional symptoms, determines the tactics of treatment.

First of all, a visual examination of the head of the penis is carried out in order to detect narrowing of the foreskin, inflammation, short frenulum or phimosis. The test checks the sensitivity. You can study this indicator yourself, applying a cream with lidocaine before sexual intercourse. If the contact time has increased, then the problem lies in the hyperesthesia of the head.

If the sensitivity of the external receptor centers is normal, then an examination of the organs included in the prostate-vesicular complex (ultrasound, TRUS, MRI) is prescribed. Urethroscopy is used to diagnose posterior urethritis, colliculitis. A blood test is taken to determine the level of androgen hormones.

The quality of conduction of nerve impulses is investigated by a neurologist. The examination complex includes verification of muscular reactions of the genital organs: cremaster, scrotum, internal and external anal reflexes. Urine pressure is analyzed during urination, detrusor work (the muscle of the bladder involved in ejaculation). Electromyography checks the responsiveness of the muscles of the pelvic floor.

Если не выявлено неврологических отклонений и воспалительных заболеваний, то потребуется серия консультаций психотерапевта, сексопатолога.

A pathologically rapid erection can be cured only with a correctly diagnosed cause. The doctor will give recommendations on what can be done in each case.

If the problem of short sexual intercourse is associated with hypersensitivity of the head, then special prolonging agents with lidocaine and prilocaine will help to partially cope with it: “SS-cream”, “Katedzhel”, Stud 5000 spray. Such drugs have a drawback - prolonging sexual contact by 8 -10 minutes, they dull orgasmic sensations. It is recommended to wash the head before the act or put on a condom so as not to reduce the brightness of the partner's orgasm.

Hypersensitivity can also be removed using surgical methods:

  1. Circumcision of the foreskin (circumcisio).
  2. Microsurgical denervation of the head - dissection of nerve trunks with subsequent recovery.

If the cause of an accelerated erection and ejaculation lies in a too short bridle, then its dissection is performed - frenulotomy.

Correction of neurological pathologies

With the neurological nature of short sexual intercourse, antidepressants that block ejaculation centers by increasing the amount of serotonin have a pronounced effect. This helps prevent early ejaculation. The most common and effective is Dapoxetine, which is able to make sexual intercourse longer by 15-20 minutes. Drugs with similar activity:

Type 5 phosphodiesterase inhibitors (alprostadil, sildenafil citrate) increase the duration of an erection for a period of 5 to 8 minutes. These include Viagra, Levitra.

Exercises to normalize ejaculatory reflexes

It makes sense to treat a quick erection through psycho-sexual therapy and exercise if the problem is exclusively psychogenic.

Techniques aimed at developing the ability to control ejaculation:

  1. “Stop start” (work in tandem with a partner). The task is to learn to recognize the approach of an orgasm during manual stimulation. The process is interrupted several times by stopping movement or squeezing the head. After a decrease in excitation (after 10-30 seconds), the stimulation continues.
  2. Kegel exercises. Volitional stopping the process of urination will help to feel the elements of the pubic-coccygeal muscles, which training is aimed at strengthening. Technique: try to isolate the necessary muscles in isolation and maintain tension for 5 minutes, then relax. Do 20 repetitions 2 times a day for a week, then try to bring the number of reductions to 70.
  3. Ancient Chinese technique (according to Wu Sin). During frictions, a man must breathe deeply and calmly through his nose, and when ejaculation approaches, you need to stop movement, quickly remove the penis (by 2/3), stay on weight, take a deep diaphragmatic breath, while pulling up the lower abdomen. After a few seconds, frictions resume. It is important to prevent overexcitation, in time to prevent the onset of sperm flow, otherwise it will enter the bladder or kidneys.

Such methods work only with hard training, but the reward will be the ability to restrain ejaculation and increase the number of frictions.

To avoid rapid ejaculation, psychologists advise using the distraction method. The bottom line is an attempt to switch attention from an approaching orgasm to furnishings, everyday, unpleasant or funny thoughts. Complicated psychological practices (auto-suggestion, psychoanalysis) are best carried out under the supervision of an experienced specialist. Hypnosis sessions are effective.

Help in prolonging an erection will have a correction of the diet. You should increase the consumption of sea fish, eggs, nuts, green salads, and legumes. You can supplement the diet with pharmaceutical means:

At the disposal of doctors there are currently quite a lot of medications and techniques that can affect each of the levels of regulation of erection and ejaculation, simultaneously improving potency. The specialist’s task is to identify all possible pathologies and prescribe treatment taking into account the characteristics of each patient.
