Being sexual is more in my nature than most people. It's probably the reason I have been masturbating since I was about 9 years old, and know my body and the male anatomy in general better than most. So after masturbating for that many years, at my present age of 43, my penis is very quick to ejaculate when stroked by my hand. I still have stamina as a top penetrating someone. However, when it comes to masturbating by stroking my dick with my hand, I'm quick to shoot a load if I'm not more patient with myself. The only thing that slows it down is stroking my dick in front of people - in short, shyness. Such as in a hook-up, a sex party, or erotic performances, like my masturbation poses when I modeled for the Leslie-Lohman Drawing Studio. With that being the case, I decided to try this desensitizing spray.
I must admit that I was hesitant to even accept the spray when offered. For as you can tell from my blog posts, I am someone who thrives on feeling every sensation involved in a situation. Regardless as to whether that sensation is physical or mental, I want to feel it all, with no interference. And as sexual as I am, there's no doubt that applies to sexual play. Hence why I hate poppers.
So the big question is: Did Promescent work? And the answer, at least from my experience, is yes.
I learned that some of my concern was realized by using Promescent, but not to the full extent. Meaning that because of its active ingredient, Lidocaine, it does just what it claims to do - desensitize. I only used 3 - 5 sprays out of the recommended 3 - 10. That caused a numbing to occur, but it didn't completely strip me of sensation as I originally always feared of desensitizers. And this did cause a delay in my ejaculation. So I personally would use Promescent for solo use.
I will admit that I have yet to use Promescent for sexual intercourse. And if I do, I will very likely do so with a condom. Even though Promescent's formula claims to absorb better into the skin than other Lidocaine-active desensitizers, so no condom should be necessary.
The reason for my decision to still use a condom is that the instructions on Promescent say "...Wash product off after intercourse." This says to me that even if it's a very small dose, the product is still on the skin, and can be removed with fluid. Therefore, I think it's safe to be concerned that Promescent can be washed off by your partner's bodily fluids while those fluids are still in their body. This, depending upon your partner's sensitivity, can still transfer the Lidocaine into your partner's anus, vagina, or even their mouth. With that said, Promescent is for lessening the intensity of sensation to your penis. NOT lessen the sensation in or around the orifice of the partner your putting your penis into. Keep in mind that I admit to the fact that I have not used it with another person. But this concern of mine is the reason why.
So this review is not a total "yes", but it's not a total "no" either. So since I can't be adamant, I am leaving the choice up to you.
After going to the website, the packaging for Promescent might have changed from that which is in my 1st picture. So keep that varied packaging in mind should you go looking for it anywhere.
