14 Jun Is There a Way to Control Premature Ejaculation?
What is premature ejaculation? According to its scientific definition, it is a condition where a man is able to ejaculate well within 2 minutes. Whether that is okay or not is relative to the partners who are having sexual intercourse.
You see, there was a study that involved more than 500 couples. Their average time for sexual intercourse was tallied and it turned out that most men typically finish above 5 minutes or so. That means we can safely say that that is borderline.
However, if it goes below that, it could potentially lead to unhappy partners (both men and women). Therefore, premature ejaculation is something that needs to be addressed (fortunately, you can).
You have to openly communicate with your partner and ask them if it is okay that you finish off way too quickly. If that is not possible, then there are some ways that you can make them happy, sexually.
Before that, let’s talk about the types of premature ejaculation.
Believe it or not, there are actually two types of premature ejaculation. One is the primary PE and the other is Secondary PE.
Primary premature ejaculation is where you are born with the condition. It typically manifests during early life and may persist through adulthood.
Secondary premature ejaculation (also known as acquired PE) is you have just recently developed the condition- either through a combination of stress, lifestyle choices, and so much more.
It is believed that primary PE is caused by psychological disturbances; particularly, if you had a traumatic sexual experience at any age.
For instance, if you live in a household where there really is no privacy, you might have masturbated quickly so that you can finish off sooner. This can be something that you can carry on later in life.
For secondary PE, it could be caused by poor health or the emergence of an underlying medical condition such as prostatitis or the inflammation of the prostate.
Treating PE depends on the type that you have. If you suffer from secondary PE, you can try the following:
- Use a thick condom as it helps reduce the sensation that you feel whenever you thrust your penis into her vagina
- Try doing deep breaths, especially when you are about to climax. This is so that you will remain calm and that PE won’t likely happen
- Masturbating 1-2 hours before can also help. This is thanks to the refractory period that you feel after you’ve finished
- Experiment with different positions. A lot of men with PE can attest that when their partners go on top, it is less likely that they’re going to come off sooner
For those who suffer from primary PE, it is best that you go to a sex therapist of both you and your partner go to a couples’ therapist.
This is so that you can voice out your concerns and your partner can do the same as well.
Premature ejaculation is a common condition that you shouldn’t dread because it is highly treatable. With the right treatment options, you can get over that slump.
