Not eating dairy products dramatically reduces staying power
Has anyone noticed a link between premature ejaculation and eliminating or reducing dairy products from their diet?
In September 2009, my staying power received wild compliments from N., and I would last for 20-30 minutes, no problem. In January 2010, with the same girl, I would only last a few minutes (less than 5) without a condom. Now in March, with a tighter girl, I usually last for at most 2 minutes without a condom. Worse, ejaculation delay cremes like ManDelay don’t work. Trojan’s Climax Control condoms do work, but I need two of them. Anyway.
I happened to keep a broad log of my diet and what changed from October to January was that I greatly reduced milk products from my diet, to see if my acne improves (it barely did, on the face, not at all on the back). Other than that, I can’t seem to notice changes in my lifestyle.
While searching the forum for “premature ejaculation”, I found a thread (“I’ve cured my premature ejaculation”) where the OP says how taking Paxil (a Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor, SSRI) delayed his ejaculation from 3 minutes to 20 minutes. On a hunch, I googled “milk serotonin” and it turns out that milk contains an amino-acid called tryptophan, which metabolizes into serotonin.
However, Wikipedia’s entry for tryptophan dietary sources shows that chicken and salmon also have plenty of tryptophan (3 times more than milk - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tryptophan#Dietary_sources), and I *have* been eating those meats.
So, has anyone else correlated avoidance of dairy products with reduced staying power? Any vegetarians maybe?
