When people think about things which can improve their relationship, sexual performance issues such as premature ejaculation rarely come to mind. While dealing with problems regarding sexual performance can be frustrating, dealing with the challenge together can do more than strengthen the emotion bond between you and your partner. Working to treat a condition such as this as a team can also have an impact on the overall efficacy of the treatment plan and may be the key to a long term solution.
Root Causes of Sexual Dysfunction
Problems in the bedroom can begin anywhere. Stress, poor diet, lack of exercise and underlying medical conditions can all play a role. Often, trying to find the root cause of the problem takes a great amount of time. While treating the root cause directly is always the preferable option, many times stop gap measures must be taken so that men and women can enjoy a semi-regular sex life while a deeper level of treatment is explored.
When dealing with premature ejaculation, acting quickly is, no pun intended, often the first order of business. Quick fixes such as numbing sprays and creams and restriction devices, or cock rings, are a popular first choice for men who find themselves dealing with sudden onset premature ejaculation. These quick fixes ensure men can still perform well while they dig deeper to reveal what may be causing the problem at its core.
A quick fix may offer immediate relief, but the change in performance is bound to be notice. Premature or early ejaculation is, quite simply, a performance issue which is difficult, if not impossible, to hide from your partner. Hiding the issue can, in fact, make it worse since it adds stress and worry which translates into more intense performance problems.
The Awkward Conversation You Need to Have
Sexuality and playful sex practices have become more acceptable to discuss in certain settings. Magazines aimed at improving the love lives of their readers have begun to appear on more shelves, television shows about the extremes of human sexuality and a more open approach from the medical community has made discussing sexual health easier than ever. Nevertheless, the thought of discussing performance issues with your partner still leaves many people uncomfortable.
Starting that conversation, however, can be a true game changer in terms of the health and happiness of your relationship. Making your partner an active part of treatment for premature ejaculation has a number of benefits. First and foremost, it shows you value her input and that you trust her by making yourself more vulnerable. This emotional connection goes a long way with women and can help her to connect with you on a deeper level which encourages a greater release the body’s natural feel good chemicals, such as dopamine and oxytocin, which are both present when people feel the emotion of love.
On a more practical level, discussing the condition with your partner makes it easier to pursue various treatment options. It reduces the stress and anxiety associated with the condition and prevents those emotions from making the problem worse. Approaching the issue with a unified front helps men to feel more at ease with treatments which require more energy or time such as controlled masturbation, sexual positions or techniques and other treatment options based on sexual therapy.
Treating premature ejaculation and other sexual performance problems is never easy. Attempting to treat it on your own only adds stress and anxiety to the mix which hinders treatment and can actually work to make the issue worse. Bringing your partner into the treatment plan creates a greater bond, encourages better communication and can ultimately lead to a greater sense of adventure when it comes to sex play since you’ll both be more comfortable discussing it once you’ve met the challenge of tackling such an intense issue together. Sexual performance problems can change a relationship forever but, if you approach it the right way, the change could be more positive than you ever thought possible.
