In an attempt to bring more awareness and understanding to health issues we are required to talk about them, write about them, read up on them and most importantly share them. Often it is a topic that people don’t feel should be discussed and kept private like premature ejaculation for example, but this isn’t the case. How are we supposed to learn about it and be more understanding if the subject is taboo or simply laughed at? We all know that there are always two sides to every story and unfortunately it is often only one that we get to hear. I am going to be sharing with you both sides because each are just as important as the other. I have researched and interviewed for this series of posts so that I can provide you with a point of view from both a male and female perspective. Today I will be sharing with you a man’s standpoint on the issue.
Matt* is 36 and is in a great relationship with his girlfriend but he knows he isn’t lasting long enough to satisfy her needs. Chloe* tells him she doesn’t mind and that it’s ok but he feels like he is constantly disappointing her. He has struggled with premature ejaculation for years now and it has destroyed many relationships prior to this one. He admits that this issue has caused emotional and relationship stress in the past and is always concerned that his relationship with Chloe will result in having the same outcome. In previous relationships Matt avoided having sexual relations with his female partners due to the embarrassment that came from his inability to last longer in the bedroom. He went on to tell me that the duration can often vary from 30 seconds – 4 minutes and that he feels like he has little to no control over ejaculating when doing the deed. He wishes he could last longer and that there was more support available to him in order to work out the cause and how he can successfully overcome the issue.
While research does show that women are far less concerned about premature ejaculation than men it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t cause some female partners distress. Premature ejaculation is most common among younger men and while it generally resolves itself over time, it can also start at a later age for reasons unknown to you. If you suffer from premature ejaculation or know someone who does, take control and check out http://www.controlpe.com.au/ or make an appointment to see your GP for more information.
