Premature ejaculation has been one of the most common male sexual problems for many years now. Several studies show that 1 out of every 3 men suffers, or has suffered, from premature ejaculation, and only 20% go to a specialist.
In spite of being a widespread problem, there are still many myths surrounding premature ejaculation, and men need to distinguish the truth from the myths. Why? Quite simply because the wrong information can prevent them from finding the best treatment.
The most common myths regarding premature ejaculation
- Premature ejaculation can’t be cured without medication. One of the biggest concerns that men who suffer from premature ejaculation have is that they don’t want to have to resort to any sort of chemical treatment that may have side effects. However, as they think that this sexual problem can’t be cured without medication, they don’t make any effort to seek a solution. This is a myth. The truth here is that there are plenty of natural ways of solving premature ejaculation, ways that are adapted to the needs of each individual patient. For example, the natural treatment that MYHIXEL offers allows men to control their ejaculations, and to last up to seven times longer during sex. Another method is by using Kegel exercises; these strengthen the pelvic muscles, which, among other functions, help to control ejaculation.
- Premature ejaculation is the consequence of excessive excitement, This is, quite simply, not true. In fact, experts point out that 90% of premature ejaculation cases are due to psychological causes, and that only 10% are related to physiological issues (prostate problems, hypersensitivity, hereditary factors, among others). This is the reason why premature ejaculation is considered to be a sexual dysfunction, and not an illness, as many men think. So, we can conclude that premature ejaculation isn’t a consequence of an excess of excitement, but, rather, an excess of anxiety or stress.
- Alcohol delays ejaculation. Many men think that alcohol consumption can delay their ejaculation, and so, as a result, they’ll last longer during sex. Contrary to popular belief though, its consumption interferes with the physical and psychological response to sexual arousal, making it more difficult to get an erection. So, we can confirm that alcohol delaying ejaculation is another of the myths concerning premature ejaculation.
- Excessive masturbation is the cause of premature ejaculation. This is not true either. Premature ejaculation is not caused by masturbation, but, rather, by the way men get used to ejaculating when practicing it. If the man gets used to reaching orgasm very quickly during masturbation, and doesn’t learn to control his sensations and release the anxiety that sex produces, then it’s very likely that during sexual intercourse he will continue to suffer from premature ejaculation. Paradoxically, masturbation accompanied carried out in stages, and with precise instructions from a sex therapist, is beneficial for premature ejaculation.
