Black Pen IconDetailed Overview

For those that want to last longer in the bedroom or are plagued by premature ejaculation due to inexperience, stress or a variety of other physical or physiological factors, the variety of pills and pumps touted to help men regain control of their ejaculations can feel like an ineffective and often time consuming option.

The range of Bathmate penis pumps offers the ability to improve your erectile strength, size and performance in the bedroom, however many men want an approach that isn’t going to require weeks or even months of training and that is I guess, why so many men opt for Benzocaine and Lidocaine based products.

Bathmate Contol Tube

These types of numbing products in the form of gels, sprays and creams do indeed combat the symptoms of premature ejaculation but at the cost of a complete lack of sensation – a huge negative side effect which can also be passed on to your partner, leaving them just as numb as you!

Step forward Bathmate Control – a product that I believe is an absolute game changer for men that want more control over their orgasms without having to resort to a product that completely subdues their down belows from any pleasurable sensations.

Bathmate Control Gel claims to:

  • Give you control over your orgasms without numbing the penis
  • Work for up to 4 hours after application
  • Can enhance your erection and penile health
  • Can increase your libido and sex drive
  • Be completely safe for use with condoms and sex toys

It’s quite a list of claims from a product that doesn’t need to be assessed or tested by the FDA (due to the lack of Benzocaine and Lidocaine) so it’s going to be really interesting to see whether Bathmate Control can really deliver results and help you achieve what it says… ultimately “control” of your ejaculations.

So let’s find out… is Bathmate Control really a cure for premature ejaculation?

Letter G IconGel & Packaging

True to form, the packaging for Bathmate Control gel meets the high quality standards that we’ve come to expect from all products within the Bathmate range.

The product box is a glossy black, featuring the brand name – Bathmate – as well as a lifestyle image and the “Control” logo along with the tagline “Prolong Your Pleasure”.

Bathmate Control Tube & Box

What’s instantly noticeable is the small size of the product box and the amount of gel you get per tube.

Compare the tube against the likes of ProSolution Gel or Instant Performer (which are for increasing the speed of erections and erection strength), the Bathmate Control tube (and indeed the box as well) is dwarfed by comparison.

Bathmate Control has just as many ingredients crammed into its formula however there is a specific reason for the small tube size…

Bathmate Control Tube Size Comparison with ProSolution Gel and Instant Performer

Bathmate Control offers a tiny 7ml (0.24 fluid ounces) of gel but unlike enhancement gels aiming to improve erection strength via application of the gel to the full length of the penis, the use of Bathmate Control is focused primarily on the glands or head of the penis so application is for a much, much smaller area.

Despite the size of the product box itself, Bathmate have crammed in directions on how to apply the gel (in 9 different languages) and a full ingredients list (although no quantities are mentioned).

Bathmate Control Tube Size (cms)

Inside the box you get your tiny tube of Bathmate Control (which includes English only directions) and a fold out guide in multiple languages that takes you through the 4 steps of using this delay gel.

Realistically you should only be using a couple of drops of Bathmate Control, so if you end up using more, you might find yourself running out rather quickly.

Although my video review provides a really good, indepth assessment of Bathmate Control gel, below you’ll find a number of photos of my purchase – these include the product box and tube, as well as a measure of the tube to highlight how truly small it is compared to other gel based male enhancement products on the market. As with all reviews on the Penis Enlargement Resource website, as you can see, I’ve actually got my hands on the product itself – something a lot of so called “review” websites don’t actually do.

Green Question Mark Icon
Medical Expert Analysis
Despite being a product that is pitched at those looking to resolve the symptoms of premature ejaculation or men wanting more staying power in the bedroom, Bathmate Control gel due to the exclusion of Benzocaine and Lidocaine is classified as nothing more than a skincare product.

Due to the exclusion of these specific ingredients that we tend to see in much stronger prescription strength gels, Bathmate have specifically avoided saying or claiming that this is a delay product – instead they’ve focused their marketing spiel toward helping you last longer by giving you more control of your ejaculations

There are 18 ingredients in total making up the overall Bathmate Control blend – 9 of which are classified as active ingredients; these sort of products generally don’t include quantities however given the meagre amount of gel you use per application, the quantity per use is likely to be very very low although hopefully no so low that it doesn’t produce results.

Bathmate Control is a gel-based, all natural formulation which claims to delay orgasms and help with premature ejaculation (PE) allowing for longer and more pleasurable sexual activity.

Other formulations that claim similar benefits typically contain local anaesthetics such as benzocaine and lidocaine.

Men with PE appear to have a heightened sensory response to penile stimulation suggesting a link between penile hypersensitivity and PE.

Drugs, such as the anaesthetic agents above, which can selectively desensitize the glans penis are believed to delay ejaculation without affecting the sensation of ejaculation.

That said, typical problems associated with these local anaesthetic-based topical PE treatments are that they might interfere with spontaneity, and could cause numbness in the man or his partner.

Bathmate Control does not contain these drugs and claims to delay ejaculation using a combination of natural ingredients.

Provided below is a review of the properties of each of these active ingredients in Bathmate Control, based on independent literature, and their potential contribution towards delaying orgasms and aiding with symptoms of PE.

Black Guarantee IconMoney Back Guarantee

Unlike a great many products within the male enhancement niche, especially those that are consumables (penis pills being a prime example), Bathmate Control does not include a money back guarantee (at least not at the moment) which is quite honestly rather disappointing.

Notably the lack of money back guarantee on Bathmate Control is seemingly pretty standard for these types of delay product, i guess even more so with Bathmate Control as it doesn’t numb the penis like other prescription strength competitor products and hence results have the potential to be a lot more varied by comparison.

The likes of Stud 100, Swiss Navy Endurance Rx and Sliquid Ride BodyWorx – all of which contain the numbing ingredients Benzocaine or Lidocaine – don’t offer such a guarantee, that said on questioning Promescent they highlighted that their Delay Spray is covered by their 60 Day Money Back Guarantee.

19 vigrx plus money back guarantee

Ultimately not having a money back guarantee is a little off putting and I think having such a fallback for customers, would ultimately speak volumes to the quality of this product, its effectiveness but also the confidence that Bathmate have in their Control gel.

Given the lacking guarantee period I highly suggest that if you want to give Bathmate Control a go, that you only purchased a single tube.

If you do see good results, then you can obviously return to the official website and buy one of their large 3 or 6 bundle supplies to save you some money if you’re planning on using the product for the long term.

Black Cart IconPricing Analysis

You’ll find that Bathmate Control is available from a number of online and offline retailers much like the other products in the Bathmate range – whether it be their penis pumps, restriction rings or other consumables; as well as Bathmate Control, they also offer a jelqing lubricant called Max Out, and a Pleasure Lube for sexual penetration.

That said, the best price can generally be found through the official Bathmate website – – whilst on larger order sizes you can get the price down to roughly per use if you buy in bulk.

Beyond getting a discount when you purchase a 3 or 6 tube supply, by going direct to the manufacturer you’ll benefit from improved shelf life, discounts on future orders if you keep yourself subscribed to their newsletter/mailing list, and free worldwide shipping regardless of your order size.

Needless to say, there are plenty of perks from buying direct through the official Bathmate website.

Black Verdict Star IconMy Verdict

So is Bathmate Control gel worth a punt?

Maybe. For me, someone without the symptoms of premature ejaculation, I’m the type of guy that was never too worried about “staying power”.

On average when mentally timing myself without using Bathmate Control, duration of sexual intercourse was generally a little under 10 minutes which as it stands, is slightly above average (6 minutes being the norm as my Understanding Premature Ejaculation article illustrates).

Having applied Bathmate Control a number of times over the course of a month (a couple of times per week rather than literally every day), i definitely saw a positive change in my ability to last longer (increasing to just under 20 minutes in some cases) however how much of that is down to the gel, and how much is purely a result of physiological factors, it’s a little hard to gauge and somewhat unknown.

Bathmate Control Gel & Box

What i will say is that using the Bathmate Control gel definitely takes performance, but also pleasure, to a notably higher level – having applied the gel I experienced a really warm, pleasant, tingling sensation shortly after applying the gel to the head of my penis; I would however say that I did end up using likely more of the gel per application than is suggested, so I can’t see my 1 tube lasting much more than 15-20 applications in total.

The tingling sensation once the gel started to work provided an added element of enjoyment to foreplay and sex, although an improvement in erection strength and libido didn’t really seem to occur.

The fact that my penis wasn’t numbed in any way meant pleasure was just as good (if not perhaps a little better) than usual.


Bathmate Control has some good ingredients and unlike the likes of Benzocaine and Lidocaine, doesn’t numb the penis so your enjoyment is not impaired. That said, effectiveness, amount of gel, high price and no money back guarantee is somewhat off-putting. Personally I’d recommend using Bathmate Control alongside something like ProSolution Plus – a supplement aimed at preventing premature ejaculation.

So I’m Chris Sabian, the creator and owner of the Penis Enlargement Resource website.

Now I’m going to be honest, I’m actually really happy with the size of my penis – i’ve never had any complaints, and it works exactly how it’s meant to.

That said however, I have worked for various companies and businesses within the men’s sexual health niche – it’s from these years of experience actually working on a number of different products that i have an absolute wealth of knowledge on what does and doesn’t work.

Yes natural penis enlargement IS possible but the amount of bullshit out there is phenomenal.

In some cases, even doctors don’t know what is truly possible, with many (especially in the US) simply prescribing treatment options that are the most profitable for their clinics!

The number of times I’ve seen adverts online for this miracle cure for erectile dysfunction, or a product claiming to give you 3 more inches in less than a month really does play in to the unrealistic and misguided view point of so many and that is why i created Penis Enlargement Resource – to stop the scare mongering and provide a completely unbiased view point on every product that passes my desk.

Yes! Every product i review i actually have possession of – i’m not simply writing reviews based on other generic online content, so if your reading a review and can’t see any unique photos or videos, chances are it’s just an affiliate marketer trying to make a quick buck off your insecurities.

So take a step back, read the articles I’ve written and see which products I’d REALLY recommend, so you can take that first step towards making your penis bigger, stronger or harder.

The journey to natural penis enlargement is not a fast process, it is not an easy process… but if you stick with it, i absolutely promise you, it IS possible.

Questions & Comments

If you’ve still got a question about Bathmate Control that i’ve not covered in my in-depth, detailed review, please include your question below – I try my best to answer every question as best I can!

8 Replies to “Bathmate Control Review”

  1. Would the control gel be okay to use with oral sex? And if so, would you recommend wiping penis before sex?

    • You shouldn’t have any issues or problems; I’d suggest applying it before sexual interactions, give it a few minutes to absorb and then you should be good to go. Notably (as highlighted in the review) you’re not using a massive amount of gel, and your obviously focusing on application to a specific area. If you’re unsure about the ingredients or have any allergies I’d obviously recommend just testing a small amount on your skin (perhaps your arm) just to ensure no adverse reactions. Hope that helps.

  2. Hi, i bought the bath mate control, it’s working quite well 2-3 times but from now on it has started to burn. I appreciate the provided ingredients but i wonder if i should stop? Sorry bad English / John from Sweden.

    • I would recommend stopping – perhaps you’ve had a bit of a reaction to the ingredients, perhaps an allergic reaction or perhaps just especially sensitive (or more sensitive) skin in that specific area. Possibly too much sexual activity? Take a good 7-10 days not using it, give yourself time to recover and then try it again, perhaps quite sparingly on a small area of skin (even if its not your penis) and see if you still experience irritation. You can the obviously go from there…

  3. Does Bathmate Control cure premature ejaculation after a while or do I have to used it for ever?

    • Unfortunately it doesn’t cure premature ejaculation and (like other gels, creams, pills etc) is something you’d need to take for the long term. Premature ejaculation has many causes (anxiety for example) so although the gels and like can help, those symptoms won’t start to reduce until you’ve identified the cause of your PE. Notably penis pumps have been shown to reduce the symptoms of premature ejaculation, so perhaps that might be another approach worth considering. You’ll find my in-depth article on the best penis pumps gives you some insight as to what you should be considering and looking for if that’s the approach you want to take!

  4. After gel has been applied and absorbed on the penis, does the gel have any effect on your partner?

    • The gel is topical and although it is absorbed into the skin and can work for up to 4 hours after application, it could (but is unlikely) to affect your partner. What you could obviously do is apply the gel, then use a condom as this will further help your staying power whilst limiting the ability for the gel to transfer to your partner.
