Premature ejaculation isn’t necessarily about a man ejaculating too quickly. A better description would be that he comes before he is ready to which means that he has no sense of control over when he ejaculates. This can often lead to frustration for both him and his partner.
The accessibility of porn has added further pressure on men (and women), portraying an unrealistic idea of how long a man can last for during direct stimulation.
Although premature ejaculation is not unusual in older men, it is very common in young men. Often this is because they have trained themselves to come quickly during masturbation. Or because they are so concerned about their performance that they over think when having sex. Attempting to use distraction techniques when having sex only makes the matter worse.
Sex therapy is an effective way of addressing premature ejaculation and can help with sexual confidence
