This is my first ever blog post and I thought I would start by writing about an important topic that effects many men, Premature Ejaculation.

I've been a Tantra Practitioner for circa 5 years now, and have come across many clients that have challenges with their sensitivity, for some it's an on-going challenge and others an occasional one.  Either way it causes some deep discomfort emotionally and physically when it comes to enjoying pleasure with a partner.

Premature Ejaculation (PE) is a man's inability to control his ejaculation and is typical with penetration. This is not as common with oral or manual stimulation.  This can be lifelong, persisting from the first sexual encounter or acquired, usually after a period of 'normal' sexual function.  PE often leads to psychological symptoms, lack of confidence, low self esteem, relationship issues and sexual anxiety.

There are many causes and are different for each man, they can be psychologicalphysical or a combination.

Psychologically the reasons can stem from patterns as early as when self pleasure is first discovered and usually results in a quick climax so as not to get caught, also feelings of guilt can increase the tendency to rush. Anxiety around performance plays a big role and those that have more sensitivity tend to be more anxious. Interpersonal relationship issues can be a contributing factor as well as erectile dysfunction and the feelings around maintaining an erection.

Physically according to the Mayo Clinic, the biological reasons can be abnormal hormone levels, abnormal levels of neurotransmitters, abnormal reflex activity of the ejaculatory system, certain thyroid problems, inflammation and infection of the prostate or urethra and inherited traits.

There are potential risks that can increase your chances of having PE.  Stress, physically and emotionally. Being in a stressful occupational environment without adequate levels of stress management over time. Health problems and certain medications.

If you have any concerns, please consider visiting your GP in the first instance, if you haven't already done so to rule out any of the potential biological causes.

In my next blog I shall be discussing Tantra as a complimentary alternative treatment.
