Sometimes men lose sensitivity in their penises as they get a bit older, which may be the case here; try using a good penis health cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil); make sure it includes acetyl L carnitine, an ingredient which is neuroprotectvie and can help with penis sensitivity issues. Good luck! View Thread
Using a condom (which is a very good thing to do — keep doing it!) does tend to deaden the sensation in the penis a little; this makes sense, as it's like having an extra layer of skin covering the penis. While some men actually find the feeling of the latex ADDS to their sense of stimulation, more seem to find that it has the opposite effect. If the condom is making the penis less sensitive during sex, try using a quality penis nutrient cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) with acetyl L carnitine. This ingredient is neuroprotective and helps maintain penis sensitivity, so it may help in this instance. Good luck!View Thread
Dry masturbation is generally not a good idea; although the penis will release pre-seminal fluid which can help to lubricate the penis, masturbation generally requires more liquid in order to keep the organ moist enough and avoid the kind of damage you mention. Keeping the penis generally moisturized is always a good idea, so regularly use a high quality penis health cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil). One that includes a high end emollient like shea butter, bolstered by the natural hydrator vitamin E, is the best bet. Good luck!View Thread
One method that you might want to try is edging. This involves masturbating until you almost ejaculating, then stopping to let the urge to ejaculate subside and then repeating over and over for as long as you can hold out — at least 30 minutes. Doing this 1-3 times a day for 2-3 weeks helps many men learn to better control their ejaculations during partner sex. It can make your penis sore, so regularly use a high quality penis health cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil). Use one that includes a reliable, high end emollient like shea butter to better soothe your sore penis.View Thread
