What is Promescent
Promescent is a lidocaine delay spray that partially desensitizes men so they can last longer in bed. The lidocaine temporary anesthetizes the penis nerves. Promescent blocks some of the signals the penis usually send to the brain. Therefore, a man will need more stimulation before he feels the urge to ejaculate.
So, by applying Promescent on his penis 5 to 10 minutes before sex, a man will last longer. You can learn more about Promescent mechanism of action in our Promescent review.
Mains Benefits of Promescent
Promscent is a unique kind of delay sprays. Instead of using solid lidocaine, it uses lidocaine in its liquid form. So, unlike other brands, the man’s penis fully absorbs Promescent. Therefore, it can’t be transferred to his partner. Indeed, while other sprays can accidentally desensitize his partner, the risk is almost null with Promescent.
Also, Promescent liquid lidocaine doesn’t stick on the outer skin. So, unlike other products, the man won’t feel completely numb. While other delay products can render the man completely senseless, Promescent numbing occurs at a deeper level, allowing the man to enjoy pleasant feels nevertheless.

All ejaculation delay products work the same. They contain an active ingredient that will desensitize some of your penis nerves.
The FDA, the governmental agency that regulates drugs in the USA, approved two different local anesthetics for orgasm delay: benzocaine and lidocaine.
If you suffer from premature ejaculation, or you want to last longer in bed, you might wonder which one between the two is the best choice for you.
With regards to ejaculation delay, lidocaine is considered the best option. However, even if it’s not as effective, benzocaine has some non-negligible benefits. For example, while lidocaine is only available in sprays, benzocaine can have many forms, from cream and gel to condoms or wipes. Also, lidocaine is corrosive to latex. Therefore, it has to be completely washed off if you want to use a condom. So, applying a lidocaine spray can be a bit more annoying when you have to use a condom.
How Can Benzocaine and Lidocaine Help with Premature Ejaculation?
Benzocaine and lidocaine share the same mechanism of action.
When someone, or something, touch your penis in a sexual context, your penis nerves send signals to your brain and spinal cord. Your brain also adds signals of its own based on your level of arousal. Regardless of the genital stimulation, your brain will also contribute to the triggering of the ejaculation.
Benzocaine and lidocaine both work by blocking the pathways in which those signals are sent. To do so, they prevent the sodium from entering your penis nerve endings. Your nerves communicate with your brain with electricity, but without any sodium, the nerves fibers can’t transmit this electrical signal.
Concerning effectiveness, there is no debate. For the same concentration, lidocaine is a stronger anesthetic than benzocaine1.
The FDA only allows benzocaine products with a concentration level between 3% and 7.5%. As for lidocaine, the product has to be in an 11mg dose-metered bottle2.
Per the FDA safety notice, we can’t use more than ten sprays of lidocaine for premature ejaculation. That means you can have up to 110mg of lidocaine.
Since there is no limit to how much benzocaine you can apply, benzocaine effectiveness depends on how much product you use.
The FDA monography obliges the manufacturer to use this sentence on the packaging: “Apply a small amount to head and shaft of the penis before intercourse, or use as directed by a doctor…” Apart from the mention “small,” there is no precise indication about maximum quantity.
So, it’s hard to say which product type has the strongest delay effect if we can’t judge a specific benzocaine quantity.
From my experience, lidocaine sprays are more effective than benzocaine products. For example, I don’t have any difficulties to last with a training unit while I’m using a lidocaine spray. I can’t say the same for benzocaine creams.
Now, it’s important to note that it’s not because I find lidocaine more effective that it will be your case too. Each man’s reaction to an ingredient will be different. That’s why you should try both product type and see for yourself which one works the best for you.
Still, I asked different men that have tried both solutions to compare lidocaine to benzocaine solutions. So far, all of them said that lidocaine sprays have a stronger delay effect than benzocaine products.
Ejaculation Delay Product Formats
Now, even if Lidocaine is more potent than benzocaine, there are others considerations. One of them is the format available.
As we mentioned, lidocaine is only available in sprays. That’s an FDA requirement. Benzocaine is available in different formats, including, condoms, cream, gel, sprays, and wipes.
In some situations, even if they are less effective benzocaine products can be more convenient than lidocaine sprays.
You won’t find lidocaine condoms for premature ejaculation. Per the FDA requirement, it’s impossible to manufacture a premature ejaculation condom with a lidocaine solution.
But there is another reason why lidocaine condoms are impossible. Lidocaine is corrosive to latex. Coating a condom with lidocaine would increase the risk of breaking the condom.
So, if you’re looking for a delay condom, benzocaine is your only solution.
Lidocaine Cream and Gel
Although lidocaine cream and gel are available for different usage, they aren’t approved by the FDA as an over-the-counter solution for premature ejaculation.
For example, the Elma Cream, a mixture of lidocaine and prilocaine have been proved effective for the treatment of PE3. However, contrary to lidocaine sprays, it’s not available over-the-counter.
One of the reasons why lidocaine cream and gel aren’t allowed over-the-counter is that you can’t control the quantity of lidocaine that you apply.
At higher dose and in some conditions, lidocaine can be dangerous. Since everyone metabolizes the lidocaine at a different rate, the FDA had to make sure that an OTC product doesn’t pose a risk.
Their solution is a dose-metered bottle. Each lidocaine spray delivers approximately 10mg of lidocaine. Evey bottle explicitly says that you shouldn’t use more than ten sprays at a time. If you respect this direction, the quantity of lidocaine in your blood shouldn’t reach a potentially harmful concentration.
First, lidocaine is more effective than benzocaine. Second, thanks to their dose-metered bottle, it’s easy to measure how much quantity you apply. Therefore, it’s easy to have the desired delaying effect. You just have to count the number of sprays that is best for you.
Again, because of the FDA requirement, lidocaine wipes aren’t possible. If a company want to develop a lidocaine wipe, it would have to convince the FDA to change its prerequisite.
Benzocaine condoms are easy to use. While other delay products application can be annoying, a benzocaine condom is as simple to use as a regular condom.
Indeed, if you’re using a lidocaine spray, you first need to apply the cream. Next, you have to rub it on your penis sensitive parts. After a couple of minutes, you need to wash off the substance. Then, if you need protection, you can put your condom on. With a benzocaine condom, it’s easy. Put it on, wait 5 minutes and you’re good to go.
The downside of benzocaine condoms is that they aren’t as effective as other options. Premature ejaculation condoms use a 4% to 5% benzocaine solution. Not only you can find more concentrated creams or gel, but you can also adjust the quantity that you use for a stronger delay effect.
Benzocaine Cream and Gel
Benzocaine cream and gel are good compromises between the lidocaine sprays and the benzocaine condoms. Since you can adjust the quantity that you use, it can have a stronger delay effect than benzocaine condoms.
Usually, benzocaine products are condom-safe. So it’s a good option if you’re annoyed by the fact that you have to wash off a product before putting on a condom. Unlike lidocaine sprays, you can simply apply, wait and put your condom on. There is no cleaning step.
Although some sprays use benzocaine instead of lidocaine, personally I don’t see any interest. If you want a spray, lidocaine sprays will be more effective. If you want a condom-safe product, a benzocaine cream will be more effective and easier to apply.
Benzocaine wipes can also be an alternative. It’s a relatively new product, so it can be hard to find. Preboost is the main brand of benzocaine wipe for premature ejaculation.
Preboost benzocaine concentration is 4%. That makes them as effective as a benzocaine condom. Obviously, it’s not a contraceptive, and it doesn’t offer STDs protection. So, if you have to wear a condom, you’re better with benzocaine condom. But if you want a mild delay effect, and you don’t want to use a condom, benzocaine wipes can be an option.
Benzocaine and Lidocaine Condom Safety
As we mentioned in the different format description, one important thing to consider is how the substance reacts in contact with latex.
Lidocaine can damage latex. So, if you use a lidocaine product, you have to make sure that there is no lidocaine left on your penis before you put a condom. That means you first need to use a damp cloth to wash off the product.
With a benzocaine product, you can avoid this step. All you need to do is to wait for the product to be absorbed. Then, you put the condom on top of the product.
Different types of lidocaine (eutectic lidocaine mixture)
Promescent is the only OTC lidocaine spray that uses an eutectic mixture
Most lidocaine sprays use lidocaine in solid form. The lidocaine solution contains lidocaine crystals. The crystalized lidocaine isn’t completely absorbed by your skin. Since it can pass the epiderm barrier, some lidocaine will stay on your skin.
That’s why most lidocaine will make your penis feel numb. The lidocaine stays on the skin upper layer and completely desensitize your receptors.
Liquid lidocaine can be completely absorbed by the skin. Therefore, it can numb the inner nerves. This has two advantages. First, you benefit from the ejaculation delay effect, but you still have sensations in the penis. Second, you don’t have to wash off the product if you don’t use a condom. Since there is almost no lidocaine left on the skin, you can’t transfer the substance to your partner.
You can have more information on this form of lidocaine in our Promescent review page. Promescent is the only OTC brand that uses lidocaine in an aqueous form.
The problem is the lidocaine melting point is 68.5 °C. So, in natural conditions, it will always be solid. If you want liquid lidocaine, you need to mix the lidocaine with another element to decrease its melting point. That’s what we call a eutectic mixture.
Eutectic mixtures cost more to develop and manufacture. That’s why Promescent is the only spray that uses aqueous lidocaine. That’s also why Promescent is a bit more pricey than other brands.
Other than Promescent, the only place where you can find eutectic lidocaine mixture for premature ejaculation is with a doctor prescription. For example, in Europe, the TEMPE spray, commercialized under the brand name Fortacin or Recordati, is a prilocaine-lidocaine solution available on prescription.
As a pain blocker, a 5% lidocaine solution is a bit more effective than a 20% benzocaine solution according to this comparative study, while this one suggests that a 2% lidocaine solution is equivalent to a 20% benzocaine one.
Ejaculation delay sprays like Promescent or KY-Duration are one of the easiest ways to last longer in bed. Even if the application process seems simple enough, there are some steps to respect.
Although most delay sprays are the same, Promescent, the leading premature ejaculation spray has a unique formulation. Therefore, there’s a slight difference in the way you apply Promescent relatively to the other brands.
We explain why Promescent is unique below. But first, let’s break down the general application process in 7 simple steps.
How to Best Apply a Lidocaine Spray like Promescent or KY Duration in 7 Simple Steps
Pulled your foreskin down to make your inner foreskin visible. You don’t need an erection to apply the spray, but it will help to have one.
Spray 3 to 10 times your penis head (glans), your frenulum, and your inner foreskin and outer foreskin.
Rub the solution all over your penis head, frenulum, and foreskin.
Remove the product that you have on your hand with a kleenex want to make sure to remove the product completely, use a damp cloth instead of a kleenex.
Wait for ten minutes for the lidocaine effect to kick in.
After ten minutes, you can remove the product with a damp cloth. Make sure to clean all the product off your penis. This step is to ensure that you don’t transfer the product to your partner. Note that if you’re using Promescent, you might don’t need this step.
If you want to use a condom, now it’s the time to put in on. Please note that you have to remove the product first (step 5), because the product can damage the condom. If you’re in a stable relationship and you don’t need protection, you can skip this step.
Resume foreplays and enjoys yourself!
Some Precisions on How to Apply a Delay Spray
Do I need to have an erection before I apply a delay spray?
No, you don’t. It will be a bit easier to aim and spread the spray if you’re erect. But PE sprays are still easy to apply on a flaccid penis.
Since Promescent, KY-Duration and other sprays’ effect last between 30 and 60 minutes, it’s possible for you to apply the spray before foreplays actually begin.
How many sprays should I use?
For safety reasons, you can’t use more than 10 sprays at a time. If you use more than 10, you’re at risk of having too much lidocaine in your blood. In certain circumstances, this could lead to liver problems.
Any number below 10 is safe. The first time you use a spray, you can start with 5. If you have difficulties to orgasm with 5, you can use fewer sprays next time. If you still come too early with 5 sprays, just use a bit more next time.
Guys who suffer from severe premature ejaculation can start directly with 8 sprays. Personally, it’s the number that I use.
If you want, you can first make some test with a training unit first. Men who have a sensitive penis climax early with a Fleshlight. If it’s your case, try to find how many sprays you need to enjoy the Fleshlight while still having control over the moment where you come. That should also be your magic number for sex with a partner.
Where should I apply the spray?
The most sensitive parts of a penis are the foreskin (especially the junction between the inner and outer foreskin) and the frenulum, followed by the glans. You should aim for those areas.
Obviously, men who are circumcised don’t have a foreskin anymore. For circumcised men, the circumcision scar is the most sensible area, so make sure to cover it well.
You can use one spray solely for the frenulum. It’s also a good idea to use at least 3 sprays on the outer and inner foreskin junction – or the circumcision scar if you’re circumcised. You can then rub those 3 sprays to make sure that Promescent, or the other lidocaine spray you’re using, cover completely the foreskin/circumcision scar. The rest of the spray should be used on the penis head (glans).
To cover the largest surface, don’t forget to spread the liquid once it’s sprayed. You can simply use your finger and rub the solution before it’s absorbed by the skin.
How Promescent Application Differ from Other Brands?
The most effective premature ejaculation spray use lidocaine as their active ingredient. There is an FDA requirement about the amount of lidocaine each spray must contain. The result is that every spray has a similar formulation.
There is one exception: Promescent. As you can read in our Promescent review, Promescent uses liquid lidocaine instead of solid lidocaine in its formula.
The result is that Promescent can be fully absorbed by the skin. Because other sprays use solid lidocaine, some lidocaine crystals stick on the skin. That’s why you have to remove the lidocaine excess with a damp cloth ten minutes after the application. If you don’t you can numb your partner with this remaining lidocaine.
This “cleaning step” can be bothering since you already have to stop foreplay to apply the spray. Adding a “washing” step oblige a second pause. Some couples find this step annoying and prefer a less intrusive application process.
That’s where Promescent liquid lidocaine comes in handy. Since the lidocaine is in an aqueous form, it can penetrate the skin deeper. So, you don’t have to clean your penis, since there is almost no lidocaine left on your skin.
Please note however that even if with Promescent, you don’t risk to desensitize your partner, it still unknown if it’s safe to use with a condom. Indeed, as you can read in our lidocaine vs benzocaine comparison, lidocaine is corrosive to latex. Even if Promescent lidocaine is mostly absorbed by the skin, more testing would be required to determine if Promescent is condom safe. So, if you put a condom on, you still need to go through the cleaning step.
How to Apply Other Sprays Such as KY Duration
Other brands all have the same application process than Promescent, plus the cleaning step.
If you are using any other brand than Promescent, you have to clean the product off your skin with a damp cloth. If you don’t, you can transfer the lidocaine, and the desensitizing effect, to your partner.
Obviously, you have to wait for the product to take effect first. This waiting period is about five to ten minutes.
Since lidocaine can damage latex, it’s also essential to wash the product off if you’re using a condom.
Another way to remove the lidocaine is to take a shower. Since lidocaine is water soluble, it will wear off in contact of water. So if you apply the spray five to ten minutes before a shower, you will be good to go after your shower.
Tips to Apply Promescent or Any Other Delay Spray Without Breaking the Experience
Using a delay spray can be intrusive. Not only you to stop foreplays to apply the spray, but ten minutes later, you have to pause again to clean up your penis.
Fortunately, they are ways to ease the use of a delay spray. Here are some ways that you can use to incorporate the application in the natural flow of things.
With Promescent, You Can Avoid the “Cleaning Step”
As we mentioned, as long as you don’t use a condom, Promescent don’t require the cleaning step. So, instead of two pauses, you only have one. By using this brand, you just cut the problem in half.
Now, that the cleaning step is gone, you only have to find a natural way to include the “spraying and rubbing steps”.
Include Your Partner in the Process
Asking for help from your partner to apply a delay spray can seem strange. But when you think about it, the thought of your partner spraying and massaging your penis with a massage oil is actually hot! What’s the difference? Instead of using oil, it’s an ejaculation delay solution, but the principle is the same.
The Shower Trick
I know, including your partner in the application step isn’t always possible. For example, men who aren’t in a stable relationship can be hesitant to ask a partner they date to help them apply the spray.
Now, using a delay spray without your partner knowing isn’t easy. We encourage men just to break the ice and speak to their partner about their PE issues.
Still, if you really want to use a desensitizing product in secret, you’re probably better with a benzocaine condom instead. However, since lidocaine sprays are more effective than PE condoms, here’s a to apply a delay spray discreetly.
Some people like to shower before sex. If your partner go the shower before you have sex, that’s an opportunity for you to apply the spray. When your date is back, you can simply go to the WC and clean your thing.
Alternatively, you can ask to go to the shower yourself. However, since lidocaine is water soluble, it will wear off in the shower. So, you have to apply the spray at least five (ten recommended) minutes before you shower.
Apply the Spray While You Go Down
One good way to apply the spray without breaking the natural flow is to do it while you’re giving oral sex. I know multitasking isn’t easy for all. Still, while you’re down there, your partner will be enjoying what you’ll be doing. If you keep a bottle of delay spray close to your bed, you can use one of your hand to spray it on your penis. When you’re done use the same hand to rub it all over your sensitive areas.
Just remember to not use this hand to stimulate your partner! At least, not before you washed off the product.
That’s not a perfect solution, but it still better than stopping in the middle of the foreplay, and let your partner idle while you spray your dick!
