How to deal with premature ejaculation

The best doctors have laid down the following ways using which you can deal with the problem of premature ejaculation, thereby gaining your confidence back:

  •  The first thing that you must always consider is to remember that it is not you alone. Lovemaking is all about pleasure and connection that you share with your partner. It might make you feel humiliated when you reach the climax before you want to, however, withdrawing in anger, disgust or shame is much uncalled for. You are not alone responsible for good sex, your partner plays an equal role.
  • It is suggested by a number of partners to orgasm quickly. Take the brakes off. Premature ejaculation is caused by two things namely, anxiety and erotic stimulation. When you are prescribed to climax quickly, there is no anxiety left.
  • Traditionally, it’s the woman who requires a body rub to warm up the sexual moment, however, a man suffering from premature ejaculation can also use this trick. Spreading the sensations helps to decentralize the obsession and anxiety about sexual performance. Thus, you will end up focusing more on your pleasure.
  • Get in touch with your doctor and seek sex therapy to learn about the causes, reasons, and the treatment and solution of premature ejaculation. Your conversation with the doctor can be very helpful.
  • A good medical intervention by a sexologist can also help you treat the problem. 

The problem of premature ejaculation is a difficult one, however, it always comes with solutions to feel you good about yourself.
