The Psychology Behind Premature Ejaculation

The Psychology Behind Premature Ejaculation

Some recent articles have centered on uncovering the reasons behind premature ejaculation. For example, a recent blog from Cedars Sinai Hospital points out that many solutions to this problem have centered around anatomical and chemical enhancements over the years.


They need to pay attention to the emotional and psychological factors. Some of the possible explanations include different mental and psychological issues, including:

  • Depression. It's been proven that depression can alter the chemicals in your brain. This is accomplished by changing the neurotransmitter levels affecting dopamine and serotonin.
  • Relationship Issues. Unresolved issues can cause heightened anxiety and stress. This kind of emotional strain can enhance performance anxiety and cause premature ejaculation.  


There are a variety of other reasons, but science points to the fact that premature ejaculation is the most common dysfunction. Published research from the National Library of Medicine reports that up to 30% of men can suffer from this problem. It's essential to keep in mind there are some differences between premature ejaculation and some other common issues. Erectile dysfunction is often mistaken for it.


The Difference Between Erectile Dysfunction and Premature Ejaculation


There's one big difference—the same body of research points to the fact that erectile dysfunction increases with age. However, incidences of premature ejaculation remain constant right across a man's adult lifespan. 


Psychology points to the fact that having good sex is a combination of relationship, psychological and physical factors. Publications like Psychology Today point out that all of these factors can influence premature ejaculation at the same time.


Premature Ejaculation and Low Self-Esteem


Some of the other psychological factors include low self-esteem and sexual guilt. Unfortunately, some patients struggle with both premature ejaculation and erectile problems. 


According to more research, one of the psychological treatments for premature ejaculation can be therapy. A therapist can help partners communicate what each wants from their sex life and the options they would like to try mutually. This can foster a more communicative relationship and reduce stress at home.


Some men find the difficulties remain even after they've had these conversations. Quite often, the answer lies in a response to stimulation and ultimate control over an orgasm. However, looking at various options might be necessary until they find one that works best.
