“Instead of being a product of my circumstances, I am a product of my decisions.” —Stephen Covey


Dealing with premature ejaculation is not a new thing for many men. However, discussing how it makes a man feel, is important.
Before getting further into the conversation, let’s start by defining what premature ejaculation is.

Premature ejaculation has a very nebulous definition.

One way to define it is:

Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates sooner during sexual intercourse than he or his partner would like. Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint. Estimates vary, but as many as 1 out of 3 men say they experience this problem at some time.

Since there can be many emotions tied to this area of intimacy, the vagueness of the definition can allow you or your spouse to question what “sooner than he or his partner would like” means. It can also begin to open up more questions about your sexual intimacy.

This is important, because this area can often create a vicious cycle if not addressed.

That’s because when premature ejaculation happens, there’s often worry about it happening again. This can cause the two of you to walk on egg shells around having sex soon after.

There are many couples who are frustrated because of this. And yet you can address what’s happening based on your intimacy.

Open up the conversation between you and your spouse around this topic. Doing so can lead you to become an even stronger team and give you the freedom to explore the many options out there to help you both enjoy your sexual encounters.
