The nervous system plays a huge role in how long a man lasts. In this article we’re going to discuss how it corresponds to the length of time a man lasts last before ejaculating. A highly responsive nervous system is usually what’s most directly responsible for premature ejaculation.
The nervous system is divided into two sub-systems, the central and peripheral. The central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system ties into the brain and spinal cord, but reaches out to everything else as well (limbs, organs, etc). The purpose of the nervous system is to interpret information/sensations from one’s surroundings (physical, mental, and visual), which then tells the body how to react. This is done by generating and transmitting electrical impulses to and from the two systems. The nervous system is basically the control center that tells your body what to do and how to react to a specific situation.
The peripheral system can also be divided into sub-systems. Beneath the peripheral are the somatic and autonomic nervous systems.
Then, beneath the autonomic nervous system are the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems.
Still with me?
These are the two systems we’re going to focus on, as they are directly related to erection, arousal, and ejaculation.
First lets talk about the sympathetic system. This system isn’t simply on or off. It has different levels, and the intensity of the level is based on the intensity of the stress. For a negative action/stress, it would peak when faced with life-threatening danger. In the case of a positive action/stress, it would peak during ejaculation and orgasm.
Think of the sympathetic system as something that ‘uses energy’. Going too far into the sympathetic system is what causes ejaculation.
Think of the parasympathetic system as something that ‘conserves energy’. Keeping yourself in a parasympathetic state will prevent ejaculation, even if you have a full erection.
The parasympathetic system is basically the opposite of the sympathetic. While the sympathetic is known for ‘fight or flight’, the parasympathetic is known for ‘rest and digest’. Relaxation is probably the best word to describe this system. The parasympathetic system kicks into gear when the mind is clear and relaxed, and when the body isn’t facing a stressful situation.
In the Ejaculation Trainer there is a lot more detail about these two systems and how you can manipulate them to last as long as you want. Once you know how to do this it becomes much easier to prevent premature ejaculation.
