Stop and Start Technique

The stop start technique has been around for quite a while now. It was originally developed by masters and Johnson and aims to help men last longer by helping then recognise the various stages of arousal, and specifically the point of ejaculation inevitability.

The goal is to help men realize when they are approaching the “point of no return” so they can slow down or stop before it is reached.


Critics of this technique argue that due to the continual stopping and starting it can be very frustrating for the partner.  They claim that the focus of this technique is solely focused on the male and lacks consideration for the woman’s pleasure. As women require a constant source of stimulation to reach orgasm, each time intercourse is stopped the woman’s level of arousal will also fall back to a low level.
