According to the Daily Mail:
Tempe, a spray-on medication, has been judged safe and effective by the European Medicines Agency and is expected in bedroom cabinets early next year.
Premature ejaculation is a problem that affects at least one in four men, making it more common than the impotence caused by Viagra.
In trials, men who used the spray ahead of sex lasted on average five times longer.
Women also benefited from longer love making, with both sexes expressing greater satisfaction with their sex life.
The Tempe spray contains low doses of two anaesthetics which help give a man more control. It only takes around five minutes to get work, although those who like to be spontaneous will be pleased to know it can be sprayed on up to two hours before sex.
A pocket-sized can will last a year, if a man has sex five or six times a month.
However, some of those who tested the drug experienced side-effects, including burning sensations and headaches.
And some fear that using a drug as a ‘quick fix’ will prevent couples from confronting the stress, anxiety and relationship troubles that could be at the heart of the problem.
If we are anything, we are a society that loves quick fixes, are we not? And hey, anyone who has accidentally put IcyHot on their nuts and shaft while trying to repair their groin after playing football for the first time in months knows that sometimes the genital burning is worth it, necessary.
I don't want to speak out of turn, or PREMATURELY, but if this does hit the market and the one and four men who suffer from quick fire syndrome benefit from it, they need to give this man the Nobel Prize. No two ways about it.
