It's Over Before It Begins...
The emotional side of premature ejaculation.

• Yoga is a wonderful activity for men who suffer from PE to engage in. It helps men learn how their breathing is affecting their PE; it teaches them to slow down and control their breathing. It also offers exercises to help strengthen and stretch the pelvic floor muscles. Yoga benefits most sexual responses in both men and women. A yoga couple’s class would be a wonderful option in treating PE.

• Consider counseling as a couple. Many times when men have PE, they believe it is their fault and their responsibility to fix. When you are a couple, you learn very quickly that what affects one partner affects both. For better or worse, this is one problem that is handled better as a couple than an individual. Counseling can help open the communication between partners which is 90% of the problem.

 

Premature ejaculation can wreck havoc on a relationship. However, it can also be a catalyst for creating a closer and intimate relationship. Having a common problem shared by a couple many times helps bond the couple. The key is viewing the problem as something you both work at solving rather than considering it “his” problem. The brain is the largest sex organ; PE has a lot to do with how a man feels about his ability to please his partner.

By
