Premature Ejaculation Myths and Realities

A couple sits on their bed in pajamas supporting each other while trying to figure between the myths and realities of premature ejaculation.There seems to be as much correct information available about premature ejaculation (PE) as there is incorrect information. Separating the myths from the realities can be tough, especially when everyone from social media influencers to alleged experts lend their voice and share their ideas.

The following list will help you separate the premature ejaculation myths from truths.

Myth #1: Premature Ejaculation sufferers have terrible anxiety

Fact: Men with PE have anxiety levels that are typical of men without PE. Anxiety may be a trigger for PE, but there are several other factors. Other men’s experience with PE does not involve anxiety at all.

Myth #2: If you have Premature Ejaculation, you have it always

Fact: PE is typically situation-dependent and PE symptoms can improve with professional treatment. Few men experience PE with all partners. Many men experience PE while with a new partner, but not with a long-term significant other. Sometimes they have PE with one partner, yet not with another. PE experiences may decrease over time.

Myth #3: Premature Ejaculation changes with age

Fact: People with PE tend to experience it throughout their lives. The prevalence of PE remains consistent from adolescence through middle age. Around age 50 there is a sharp increase in PE experiences. In some instances, there is some leveling off in future years of PE experiences.

Myth #4: The “Squeezing” or “Stop/Start” techniques work

Fact: Ignore everything you’ve heard about stop/start techniques as they tend not to work. Sometimes, they even make a situation worse. The main issue with this technique is that stopping every minute or couple of minutes can be frustrating for your partner. Instead of the stop/start technique, focus on a relaxation method that works for you. When the ejaculatory muscles are relaxed and in a controlled state, it can help delay premature ejaculation.

However, this does lead to the next myth.

Myth #5: Men with Premature Ejaculation consider it very distressing for their partners

Fact: It’s very common for men who suffer from PE to feel more distress in their situation as they’re worried about how they’ll perform, their partner’s satisfaction and if they’re happy. This can weigh a lot on their mind, causing even more distress. However, in comparison to men, women feel less stressed about their partner’s PE. When they do express distressed feelings in that situation, it’s typically a reaction to their partner’s suffering.
