As we age, a lot of things eventually go downhill. One of them is our sexual prowess, which slowly fades away into a loss of sensitivity. Even though most people choose not to think much of it, there isn’t much sense in having sex if you’re not able to derive pleasure out of it.
This loss of sensitivity is not always a result of age, it can also happen due to excessive masturbation. Death grip syndrome is a condition that happens when the penis is held too tightly for a long period of time, usually during masturbation, causing the receptive nerves to get damaged. It causes one to lose their ability to reach an orgasm through vaginal sex due to dependence on the tight grip that masturbation provides.
Apart from excessive masturbation, there are other things that can cause this condition as well and the following are the symptoms for it:


1) You aren’t enjoying sex as much
Sex should not just be about needs, it is also supposed to give you sensual gratification. In this condition of death grip syndrome, sex doesn’t seem as enjoyable as masturbating. One would begin to feel more sated in touching themselves than in participating in vaginal intercourse with their partner.

2) Tough to maintain an erection
Due to excessive masturbation, the nerve endings become damaged and the penis loses its sensitivity. Your grip is stronger than that of a vagina and in cases like this, the penis becomes used to getting off to masturbation and the vaginal grip doesn’t seem tight enough for the erection to last longer.

3) Unable to reach orgasm
What is the point of having sex if you’re not able to satisfy both you and your partner? If you are no longer able to reach an orgasm while having sex and can only be able to do it from touching yourself, it is a possibility that you might have developed this syndrome.
Wondering why it happens?


Here are some causes of death grip syndrome

1) Tight Grip
Grabbing your penis too tight, even for the sake of greater pleasure is harmful to the nerve endings down there. If held too tightly, they run a risk of becoming insensitive.
A tight grip can cause more sensation and result in reaching an earlier orgasm, but it is not worth the damage it causes. Your grip is going to be stronger and tighter than what a vaginal intercourse would provide, so go easy and let it feel more natural.

2) Going too fast or without lubrication
It is common for men to jerk themselves quickly in order to reach faster orgasms. But what you need to remember is that it is best to let things feel as natural as possible.
Going too fast would feel nothing like actual sex and your needs would no longer get met by indulging in sex. Not using lubrication and going too fast can harm the sensitivity of your penis. Being too quick or forceful can lead to developing the death grip syndrome.
Reaching an orgasm sooner is just not worth the toll it takes on your penis.
Thankfully for people suffering from this syndrome, there are ways in which one can reverse the effects it has had on the sensitivity down there. It is not a medical condition and you can recover your sensations and be able to reach climax through natural ways.


How to reverse this syndrome?

1) Hold off on masturbating
One thing that you can do to help this situation is to stop masturbating for some time, hold back for at least a week if not two. It is, of course, going to be tough and you will find yourself wanting to but this is something that you need to do. Try it and watch how things go back to being normal in no time.
After the mentioned time, you can start again but remember to not do it as often as you used to before. You need to indulge more in intercourse than in deriving pleasure out of masturbation.

2) Take it slow
Someone wise once said “Slow and steady wins the race”, and it applies here as well. What is the rush anyway? Masturbation should be done leisurely, savoring the feeling instead of hurrying to finish off. You need to let things feel as natural as possible and rushing into it is not going to help the case. It is not physically possible to finish things as quickly at the time of sex with your partner. So let it take time, and it will only be more intense.
You should let things be realistic because, to be honest, that attitude is not going to help in satisfying your partner.

3) Don’t use too much force
Your penis consists of fragile tissue and you need to careful with it. It is a delicate body part and should be treated accordingly. Going too hard or using too much force on it can cause more damage than it brings pleasure.
Go easy and loosen your grip while masturbating, as this will give the nerves down there to grow and revive its natural state. As a result, the sensitiveness of your penis will get restored.

4) Take a supplement
In case of any problems such as the inability to reach orgasm, or maintaining an erection, or the penis feeling insensitive during sex, you can take the aid of an enhancement pill.
Products like invigo, increase the flow of blood into the penis and assist it in prolonging an erection during intercourse. It also contains certain ingredients which help your penis in regaining its sensitiveness and reach orgasm.
However, inability to reach climax, combined with other conditions like erectile dysfunction, numbness in your penis, or any such issue, you should definitely think of consulting a doctor.
Nevertheless, you can try doing the above things in order to remedy death grip syndrome and see if it works for you.
Just remember to be a bit gentle and go easy and you can normalize your sensitivity and get an amazing sex drive back in no time!
