Sex is surrounded by so much hype that sometimes it can be an underwhelming and stressful experience. Premature ejaculation is one of these things that’s always discussed but that never stops being any less embarrassing or disappointing for all parties involved. According to a new study, there might be a solution for this pesky problem.
In a study conducted by the Yuksek Ihtisas Hospital in Turkey, researchers discovered that electrical stimulation can play an important role when it comes to stopping premature ejaculation. According to INSIDER, by applying a small electric current to the ankles of men who suffer from this, doctors were able to help these people have sex for longer periods of time.

This process is known as “electrical tibial nerve stimulation”, and it doesn’t involve anyone getting seriously shocked. The electric current administered is very mild, more like a tickle, stimulating the tibial nerve and traveling all the way through the body until it reaches the nerves located in the pelvis, which are involved in the process of orgasm.
The study was conducted on 30 people, and even though it produced positive results, a larger study needs to be done in order to determine if this stimulation is a valid option for curing premature ejaculation.
