Sta-Hard is a desensitizing cream used by men who wish to delay orgasm either because of a history with premature ejaculation or just because they want to provide a longer experience for their partners and themselves. Made by California Exotic Novelties, Sta-Hard is available through a number of websites, mainly those selling sexual enhancement toys and novelty items.
How Sta-Hard Works
Sta-Hard, and other products like it, work by partially numbing the penis so it is not quite as sensitive to stimulation. This way, you can withstand more action before finishing, thereby making sure maximum enjoyment can be had by all.
The instructions are fairly simply. You apply an amount about the size of a quarter, and rub it in about 5 to 10 minutes before serious sexual activity. This will give Sta-Hard enough time to be working when you need it. We found no information about how long it will last. We also found no information about whether or not it can be used with condoms.
The active ingredient in Sta-Hard is Benzocaine, which is a common topical analgesic used in over-the-counter creams and ointments as well as in cough drops. It effectively numbs the area it is applied to, making it less sensitive to stimulation by touch. The cream is lanolin based.

You’ll want to compare what’s good about Sta-Hard to what’s not so good about it as a way to make sure you’ve considered all the necessary factors before you buy.

Where to Buy
You can purchase Sta-Hard through several online retailers, mostly those who sell sex toys. It comes in a 1.5 ounce tube and sells for between $15 and $20. Any money-back guarantee would have to be arranged between you and the retailer, as there is not one available through the manufacturer.
When it comes to desensitizing creams, we haven’t really found any that stand high above the rest. If they contain a topical analgesic, like Benzocaine, then they are likely to have the desired effect. Sta-Hard does contain Benzocaine and probably works as well as most of the other products available. In the end, Sta-Hard is a fine product, but there’s no real reason to choose it above the others.
