AN electronic patch activated by a phone app could help fellas last nearly four times longer in bed.

The  postage stamp-sized device is placed in the groin.

It zaps  muscles that trigger orgasm with a mild  current and stops them contracting during sex.

The adhesive patch is controlled wirelessly using a smartphone app, allowing men to calibrate it to their own needs. They can even adjust it during sex.

If they want to keep going, they simply turn it up by tapping the screen.

When  ready to finish, they can dial it down. Two metal strips on the patch  act as electrodes.

It is being hailed as a  breakthrough in the treatment of premature ejaculation, which  hits a quarter of men. Up to three per cent climax in under 60 seconds compared to the average  nine minutes.

Scientists  who developed the patch at Israeli firm Virility Medical said each one will cost about £10 and they  could be available  in the UK by  June.

Tests showed men lasted 3½ times longer and reported just a slight tickling.

Each patch is used once for hygiene reasons.

But sexual medicine expert Dr David Goldmeier, of Imperial College London, said: “We need bigger studies to see if it really works.”

‘Smoking dope gets you laid’

DOPE smokers have about a fifth more sex than non-users, a study found.

Studies had suggested the drug could lower libido.

But analysis of 5,000 US adults found men who did not smoke weed had 5.6 romps a month on average. Males smoking every day had sex 6.9 times.

Women who smoked every day had sex about 7.1 times a month compared to six for non-users.

Dr Michael Eisenberg, of Stanford University, California, said: “They might be more uninhibited anyway, or the drug can lead to more sexual arousal.”
