My girlfriend is more than understanding about my Premature ejaculation, but it’s really embarrassing for me. I’m only in my late 20’s. I didn’t think something like this could happen to me.

I’ve never experienced it so I cannot comment on it directly. If it did happen to me I would sad for my partner since they wouldn’t experience very much joy.

Premature ejaculation is when you engage in sexual activities but you have finished and released your bodily fluids in a very quick matter of time, usually it is considered premature ejaculation when the male ejaculates within 1 minuted of vaginal intercourse on a consistent basis. Time frames from 2-3 minutes and up are usually not considered premature and rather steps can be taken to help avoid from ejaculating too quickly such as a helathier diet or The pause-squeeze technique listed on “”

I am consistently having to deal with this condition and my wife is very patient with me, but I wish I could be more confident in the bedroom in order to give her the loving that she deserves. I have heard that there are quite a few medications out there, but I only recently have gotten around to trying some. Hopefully it works.

I was with a girlfriend this one time and it had been about a week since I masturbated or had sex. I was incredibly horny and we got naked and I went down on her, she smelled so good down there it turned me on so much so when I finally stuck it in her I lasted like three or four pumps before I came inside her. Shortest sex I’ve ever had.

having had sex for many years i bestowed it upon myself to masturbate frequently after sex. This lead to a problem in my body for when i would have lots of sex, I would finish way too early and my wife wasnt happy about that. Thankfully im seeing a therapist for this
