The prostate gland plays a very important part in regulating arousal. Pressure in between the engorged prostate and the erection causes most of the pleasurable sensations and it may be emptied manually before sex by prostate massage. This causes the erection to be strong but less sensitive, and increases a patient’s awareness of his physiology.

Serum serotonin levels could be increased through dietary means. Increasing the serum level of serotonin helps inhibit the ejaculatory reflex.
