How PE Affects Your Relationship

How Can Premature Ejaculation Affect Your Partner?

Women with partners who have premature ejaculation are less likely to initiate sex due to anxiety over performance. Due to their partner’s response during sex, women may feel that they are not doing the right thing which causes their partner to be unable to control ejaculation. Many women also report feelings of anger and resentment, partly because premature ejaculation can make it seem as though a man is being selfish in bed.

A recent survey of over 12,000 men and their partners showed that the partners of men with premature ejaculation had less sexual satisfaction and were more concerned about their relationships overall.

What they say:

“I feel rushed and emotionally detached from him.”

“I want to talk about it openly but it is difficult for me to bring it up.”

A recent survey of more than 12,000 men showed that those with premature ejaculation had experienced less sexual satisfaction. Men with premature ejaculation were also more likely to report having ‘little interest in sex’ and ‘lack of orgasm’.

Men with premature ejaculation in this survey also had greater concerns about their overall relationship – sometimes even avoiding relationships altogether.

Men with premature ejaculation and their partners may feel that there is something missing from their relationship and that this affects their sense of intimacy.
