The man or his partner applies light pressure just below the top of the penis for about 20 seconds, let's go, and when sexual relationships can be continued. The technique can be renewed as often as necessary. When this technique is prosperous, it enables the persons to learn to delay ejaculation with the pressure, and eventually, to gain control over ejaculation without the pressure.
