In the start-stop method, you simply pull out or interrupt stimulation when you sense a mid-level of excitement is developing, but before ejaculatory inevitability is reached. This technique, like the squeeze technique, can be used with sexual activity or masturbation. Once the feeling of sexual excitement has subsided to an extent, you should resume stimulation and repeat this cycle any number of times. Again, the goal is to develop a sense of control over timing of ejaculation. Sometimes men are worried about losing their erection if they stop stimulating. If that’s the case, the start-stop technique can be done after taking Sildenafil. Sildenafil can be used to help maintain the erection for a period of time even without constant stimulation, and the start-stop technique can then be effectively practiced to improving ejaculatory timing.
