It’s very possible to last longer without limiting pleasure, taking pills, or using numbing creams. This approach involves no work arounds. You will get the lasting solution you deserve through brief, solution-focused therapy.

You are probably here because you or your partner are among the large population of men struggling with premature ejaculation (PE). Many men are not aware of treatment options, or are reluctant to seek help. Brief, solution-focused therapy can make a big difference in your sex life and overall wellbeing in a short period of time.


Premature, or rapid ejaculation, is one of the most common complaints of men and their sexual partners. It is estimated that this condition affects 30% of men over their lifespan. You are not alone. Experts disagree about the exact definition of premature ejaculation. Estimates range from less than 1 minute and up to 3 minutes from the beginning of penetration until ejaculation. This condition can cause a great deal of distress, performance anxiety and relationship conflict. In some cases, erectile disorder may result from untreated premature ejaculation.


There is not an exact definition of PE. The focus of PE treatment is to help men gain control over their ejaculation and allow them to extend the time engaged in sexual activity. This can ultimately lead to a more satisfying sexual experience. In order for treatment to be successful, goals must be realistic and attainable, and a therapist can help you learn how to set those goals. You will create a plan to progress towards your goals in a sustainable and satisfying way.


There are various theories about what causes and maintains premature ejaculation. Lack of control of ejaculation can be caused by heightened sensitivity to sexual stimuli, stress, performance anxiety, a deficit in psychosexual skills, relationship conflict and co-morbid sexual dysfunctions. A medical exam by a doctor should be completed to rule out any organic and biological causes as well as potential side effects of medication.


A sex therapist can help you develop psychosexual skills, learn systematic desensitization routines, address negative thoughts and beliefs about ejaculation, sexual activity and performance anxiety and provide relationship counseling as needed. A sex therapist is trained in understanding how these techniques lead to desired outcomes, the barriers that can be encountered, and how to overcome them. Treatment is often effective after a short number of sessions with significant improvements in sexual satisfaction.


There is currently no medication specifically designed to treat premature ejaculation. In certain cases, medications generally used to treat anxiety and depression may be used to cause slowing of ejaculation. Additionally, a number of numbing products and medications are available. Both of these options have potential unwanted side effects and should be more thoroughly explored with your doctor or therapist.
