The Daily Mail is reporting that one of the scientists on the team that developed Viagra in the Nineties, has turned his sights to another sexual problem plaguing the unfortunate: premature ejaculation. Mike Wyllie’s new product is called Tempe, a spray on medication that has been deemed safe and effective by the European Medicines Agency and is expected to hit the market place early next year.
Premature ejaculation is a problem that apparently affects at least one in four men. That means when you’re watching the game with your buddies, take a look around. Somebody’s leaving town early. That being said, in clinical trials, men who used the spray lasted about five times longer.
Dr Wyllie, formerly of Pfizer and now Plethora Solutions, said: “Premature ejaculation doesn’t just make the patient feel bad. It does affect the partner and can completely destroy relationships. I feel this could save relationships.”
As of now there is just one pill designed to take on this problem but it is costly and not widely available in the UK.
Tempe’s ingredients include low doses of two anesthetics designed to give a man more control. It takes about five minutes to kick in and can be sprayed on up to two hours before sex. One pocket-sized can has the potential to last an entire year if the man is having sex five or six times a month (in which case that man is my hero)
Too good to be true? Some who tested Tempe did experience side effects including burning sensations and headaches. Not to mention that some believe the spray is a quick fix which may prevent couples from examining relationship issues that might be contributing to the problem.
Strangely enough, the article did not mention where to apply the spray.
