Is there a link between erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation?
(Best Sexologist in Bhopal)
The two most mutual male sexual problems are premature ejaculation (PE) and erectile dysfunction (ED), but it is less widely known that these two sexual dysfunctions often come as a pair. If you, like many men, have experienced erectile loss during sex, you may have found yourself in a vicious circle whereby you try to focus on your sexual excitement to ignore this loss. Unfortunately, this rise in sexual excitement can speed up ejaculation. In order to avoid ejaculating too soon, you find yourself focusing on reducing your sexual excitement, which leads to the loss of your erection. All the while this process is going on in your head, you become a spectator to your experience during sex and suffer from performance anxiety. So you are not very present in the moment, neither enjoying your partner’s body, nor focusing on the pleasurable sensations of being touched by your partner.
The following techniques may be helpful:
Learn to relax
Lower your anxiety in common, by exercising regularly and practising ‘mindfulness techniques.’ There are many internet resources and apps to help to do these quick and simple breathing exercises daily to train you to stay focused and relaxed. Being relaxed during sex will help you to focus your attention on pleasurable sensations, rather than being preoccupied with your erection or ejaculating too soon.
Practice losing and gaining erections
A useful exercise for ED is to practise getting an erection, then letting the penis go flaccid, until you become used to the idea that with the right state of mind and stimulation, erections come, go and come back again. Also, it can be helpful to get more acquainted with your flaccid penis – it is not the enemy and can give you and your partner pleasure.
Experimenting with an erection ring
An erection ring is a round elastic plastic cylinder that is worn at the base of the penis to help maintain an erection. They can only be worn for a limited time during sex.
Try stimulating your partner so their arousal is heightened, then ejaculating rapidly upon penetration may not be such an issue.
Open up and talk
If you are in a relationship, try talking to your partner first. Many couples are amazed at how effective talking about sex and other relationship issues can be. If you feel you need further help, you may wish to consider seeking specialist psycho sexual and relationship therapy.
