Premature Ejaculation (PE) is a problem that affects 30-40% of men at some point in their lives. The MYHIXEL Control is a program that consists of the MYHIXEL II masturbator and access to the MYHIXEL Play app. The MYHIXEL Control is a medical program that aims to combat PE using a high quality masturbator, interactive app, and coaching on both physical and sexual health. The team of doctors, scientist and sex-tech professionals at MYHIXEL have developed a robust procedure to help improve your sex life and limit your PE. But does it work? Read further to find out more.
My Initial ThoughtsAs stated above the MYHIXEL Control consists of two parts, the MYHIXEL II masturbator and the MYHIXEL Play app. The MYHIXEL II doesn’t look like your typical masturbator and that’s because it isn’t. This FDA approved medical device looks more like a piece of modern art than a sex toy. The gold end cap serves as the heater for the masturbation sleeve and attaches to the tube with a pair of strong magnets. These magnets also serve as electrical transfer points to help charge the device. Not only does it have a built in heater, but it also has Bluetooth and a built in vibrator. The rubber texture on the outside lends itself well to being gripped and not slipping in the middle of a “lesson”. The sleeve is made of similar TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) that you might find in a Fleshlight. I will admit that this has a more matte finish and the texture is less slippery even when lubrication is added. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but you may end up using more lube that you normally do. The two buttons serves to turn on the device, connect Bluetooth and turn on the vibration motor. There are also two cleverly placed vent holes with rubber caps that you can open or close to increase or decrease suction, which is a nice touch. Finally the bottom of the device has two magnetic charger contacts and a standard 5/16 screw mount which you will find on many masturbators and sex toys.
General ProcessAlthough PE isn’t a specific problem I have, the thought of increasing my time to climax and overall sexual experience sounded great. As with most rechargeable sex toys the first thing you need to do it charge it for 3 to 4 hours. While charging, make sure to download the MYHIXEL Play App and register for everything using the included QR code in the package. Once charging is complete, you need to pair the device to the app. From there you can start the lessons. The lessons involve a variety of exercises such as focusing on your breathing, which muscle groups are tense during or close to orgasm, and repeatedly getting close to the “point of no return” and backing off to try and extend your time to orgasm. Upon completing a lesson and successfully “beating” your time you get access to various recipes and exercises that are aimed to help to increase your time in the program. One week could be Kegel exercises and the benefits of avocado, the next could be core exercises and the benefits of low carb. There is enough variety in the exercise and recipes that it keeps it interesting.
My ExperienceI worked my way through the program, and it was nice to actually focus on my breathing and which muscle groups were involved during this process. Having the app and the timer going with a direct goal in mind gave me a sense of purpose while masturbating. Most of the levels have multiple lessons that increase the complexity each time by adding things like vibration and having you focus on getting to the “point of no return” and relaxing your muscles to try and back off. Going through the weekly lessons I could see my time to orgasms steadily increasing. Most of the lessons were fairly repetitive, try an exercise, try to go longer then try it with the vibration on, repeat. The final lessons instructed you to attach the masturbator to a wall mount, using the standard mounting screw, or place it between some pillows to simulate intercourse as much as possible. I really enjoyed my time with the MYHIXEL Control and I definitely noticed a difference in my time to orgasm going through the 8 weeks program. My major concern deals with the fact that most of these lessons don’t involve a partner. When in the throws of actual intercourse, there’s more passion and emotion involved and that changes how your body reacts in those situations. Now, I’m not saying that you can’t have those feelings while using the masturbator or having a partner go through the programs with you, but that add another level of complexity to the system and is something that will be very different for every person.
The design of the MYHIXEL II is simple yet elegant. The textured exterior allows for easy gripping and the gold heating lid adds a touch of pizzazz to the over all design. The inclusion of closable vent holes was a nice addition as previous iterations used a screw cap similar to other mass market masturbators. The overall design is well thought out and nice enough that you can leave it out on your night stand and no one will think that its a masturbatory medical device.
If you have ever connected a Bluetooth speaker to your phone you can get started with the MYHIXEL Control. The app is easy enough to start and navigate through. Once inside you need to connect the masturbator to the MYHIXEL Play app and then you can start "playing". The procedure for each lesson is explained in detail down to what muscles you need to try and relax or contract to help with various sensations. There is a timer that counts you down and then the level starts. Once you've "finished" you stop the timer and if you've beaten your previous time by a selected margin you can advance to the next level. Repeating the levels multiple times and progressively beating your score will unlock more benefits like recipes and workouts that will help you along the way. The MYHIXEL Control is fairly advanced but explained in a simple enough way that even a beginner could handle it.
The MYHIXEL Control is definitely made of premium materials. The rubberized outside and the metallic gold heating cap give it a premium look and feel. The TPE sleeve is stretchy and soft and the internal texture and pattern are nice but lack any major protrusions so some may find that part lacking. The vibrator motor inside is the weakest part of the entire package. You do notice it but since it sits on the outside of the TPE sleeve and there is too much material for you to feel any major vibrations. As far as sound is concerned, you can barely hear the vibrations. The instruction videos on the app will easily be the loudest part.
At $300 the MYHIXEL Control is definitely not cheap, but considering it is marketed as a medical device I think the price can be justified. When you consider it is more of a program that includes lessons, coaching, meal suggestions and exercise routines the cost doesn't seem as daunting. If you are interested in the masturbator only , that can be purchased separately as well for $150. The premium build materials and packaging also add to the overall value of the MYHIXEL Control. But if you suffer from PE it seems like a no brainer.
I wasn't sure what to expect at first with the MYHIXEL Control but the MYHIXEL Play app does a good job of explaining what is going to happen and what you need to aim for in each lesson. As previously stated, most lessons have have you focus on the muscle groups associated with ejaculation or getting close to climax and relaxing back down to get a better understanding of your body before and during ejaculation. The built in heater did a good job of increasing the temperature of the sleeve a little but it did not get as warm as Fleshlight Sleeve Warmer I previously tested. The same could be said about the built in vibration feature. It was noticeable but barely. The built in vent ports made it easy to change the suction while going through the lessons and made a huge different in the overall sensation. Recharging took 2-3 hours with the included magnetic USB-A charger which is not super fast but when you consider all of the electronics in the unit that isn't surprising.
The packaging with the MYHIXEL Control was topnotch. The matte black box with gold accents and heavy cardboard that folded open was discreet and had a premium feel to it. Everything was labeled and displayed clearly and nicely. They also included a quick start guide in the shipping box which was helpful but appeared to be for an older version of the product. Inside you received the MYHIXEL Control masturbator, a magnetic USB-A charger, instructions manual and registration cards to access the app.
The MYHIXEL II is a decent size but still feels fairly light even though it packs in so many electronics. The TPE sleeve was very squishy and textured nicely inside although there could have been a little more for my liking. Cleaning the unit after use was easy enough. Remove the sleeve and clean with warm soapy water and let air dry. If the shell needs to be cleaned it needs to be wiped clean and no water or liquid needs to get on the inside as that could ruin the electronics inside the unit. Once everything is dry place the sleeve back in the shell insert the heating lid and store it.

The MYHIXEL Control program has several features that set it apart from the competition. When you look at the masturbator, the MIHIXEL II, one of the main features is the built in heater. To have everything built into one nice looking package was a huge plus and definitely added to the experience. I feel the MYHIXEL Play app is also worth mentioning as it is very user friendly and having access to the built in timer makes getting through the lessons that much easier.

The 8 week program developed by the team at MYHIXEL Control gives you all the necessary tools to help with pre-mature ejaculation. Even though I don't specifically suffer from PE, I was able to increasing my climax time by almost 50%, so the program definitely works. The premium packaging and building materials give the MYHIXEL Control a very solid and expensive feel. The only major downsides were the weak vibrator and the high price tag. The $300 price tag is steep but if you suffer from PE, it is definitely worth the investment. I will say that although this program is fairly robust it does remove the human element, your partner, unless they are actively participating in each lesson. Being able to focus on these muscles and sensations is much easier when you are not enthralled in active, passionate lovemaking. Now, I think the goal of this programs is to get you to the point to where it requires much less focus to increase your ejaculation time. But that's what it's going to take, time.
