Sexual function and your relationship
When couples think of ways to improve their relationship, muddling through sexual function or performance issues is not usually at the top of the list. However, whether you suffer from premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction – working as a team to overcome this challenge can not only improve your sex life and satisfaction, it can strengthen the relationship bond you share as well. Working as a team to overcome one or both partners sexual issues can provide a boost in your overall relationship and as well as increasing the chances for a permanent solution.
Sexual performance issues – including premature ejaculation – can have numerous causes or contributing factors. These include:
- Diet and Nutrition
- Lack of Exercise
- Underlying medical conditions
- Existing medications
While treating the root cause of sexual function issues is the best and quickest way to restoring a happy sex life – addressing the issues above will also go a long way to eradicating any sexual function problems. Premature ejaculation is almost impossible for a man to hide from his partner, so often times he will withdraw from sex in order to avoid the embarrassment of it happening. If the woman doesn’t know this is why he is withdrawing from intimacy, she may take this as a sign that he is no longer interested in her – or that other issues may be present. This can quickly lead to feelings of guilt, resentment, and even anger – causing both the relationship and the sex life to deteriorate even farther and faster.
For this reason, communication between partners concerning an issue like premature ejaculation is key – the sooner you both talk about it – the sooner you can take action and work to overcoming the problem. Making your lover an active part of treatment for premature ejaculation has several benefits. Not only does it show that you trust her and value her input, it helps your partner connect with you on a more intimate level. Reinforcing this bond will strengthen the relationship and help you move forward with solving this problem. Feeling supportive and connected with each other releases positive endorphins like dopamine and oxytocin, which in itself can help improve reproductive functions.
Discussing your condition with your partner offers other benefits as well, including making it easier to pursue various treatment options. Several effective treatments for PE are available, but if men are embarrassed or afraid to purchase them because they’re afraid their partner will find out – this will only help hide the problem. Having your partner informed about your situation will make them understand why you are trying a specific treatment option such as PE exercises, controlled masturbation, experimenting with different sexual positions, or trying a premature ejaculation supplement.
For most men, admitting to a problem with premature ejaculation or any other sexual performance issue can be quite daunting. However, this is the most important step to overcoming any sexual dysfunction problem, and once done you can quickly and easily start exploring the multitude of options for overcoming these problems. Trying to treat this problem on your own only makes things harder (no pun intended!) – and adds to both the stress and anxiety you feel – which may hinder treatment and may actually make the problem worse. Overcoming this problem together will not only result in a quicker return to a satisfying and enjoyable sex life – you’ll likely find your relationship is stronger than ever!
