VODABONE: This Smartphone App Will Help You Last Longer In Bed
AN electronic patch activated by a phone app could help fellas last nearly four times longer in bed.
The postage stamp-sized device is placed in the groin.
It zaps muscles that trigger orgasm with a mild current and stops them contracting during sex.
The adhesive patch is controlled wirelessly using a smartphone app, allowing men to calibrate it to their own needs. They can even adjust it during sex.
If they want to keep going, they simply turn it up by tapping the screen.
When ready to finish, they can dial it down. Two metal strips on the patch act as electrodes.
It is being hailed as a breakthrough in the treatment of premature ejaculation, which hits a quarter of men. Up to three per cent climax in under 60 seconds compared to the average nine minutes.
Scientists who developed the patch at Israeli firm Virility Medical said each one will cost about £10 and they could be available in the UK by June.
Tests showed men lasted 3½ times longer and reported just a slight tickling.
Each patch is used once for hygiene reasons.
But sexual medicine expert Dr David Goldmeier, of Imperial College London, said: “We need bigger studies to see if it really works.”
