Reasons for delayed ejaculation in men

Delayed Ejaculation Advice For Men

prozacIan Kerner is a sex therapist who’s written a great deal about how men can pleasure women in bed. And that’s great, because many men still don’t know how to bring a woman to orgasm*.

In a conversation with sex therapist colleague Michael Perelman, Kerner outlined his thoughts about the causes of delayed ejaculation.

And just so you have a very informal view of this issue, before we get serious, here is Laci Green, sex-educator and all round good chappess, on the subject of late, slow and inhibited orgasm.

Causes of Delayed Ejaculation

porgimagesFirst up, then, is the use of SSRI antidepressants such as Prozac, Zoloft and Paxil.

And Kerner’s absolutely right – these drugs can certainly stop a man coming any time soon. So yes, they are a cause of delayed ejaculation. (But so are many other medicines. Are you taking anything prescribed by your doctor?)

Sometimes anti-depressants greatly increase the time to ejaculation, sometimes they stop it altogether.

Kerner says these drugs are one of the main reasons for the recent increase in men experiencing delayed ejaculation.

Maybe. To be sure, we’d need to compare the increase in prescriptions for these SSRI antidepressants and the increase in delayed ejaculation over the same period of time. I don’t think anybody’s done that.

keyboardwithsexHowever, we do know that more men are seeing doctors for delayed ejaculation, and we also know there’s been a dramatic rise in prescription of SSRI antidepressants.

Like I said, that doesn’t mean the two things are linked; it could just be that more men are finding the courage to talk about delayed ejaculation.

Even so, we do know that SSRI antidepressants can interfere with sexual function, and if you’re on these drugs, or for that matter any prescription drugs, go and see your doctor. You may find there’s an alternative medicine which will allow you to ejaculate normally.

Anti-depressants and delayed ejaculation

by SlowTrainComing

I'm a 30-yr old male who has been taking Zoloft, a SSRI similar to Prozac et al, awhile now and it works well vis-a-vis my depression. Unfortunately it makes it very hard to orgasm/ejaculate. This has actually had a significant adverse impact on a number of my relationships with women, for many years now. I'm tired of it but don't know what to do. I'm not prepared to discontinue anti-depressants altogether but tried switching to Wellbutrin two years ago and that didn't work.... Can anyone recommend any cures for this unhappy sexual situation?

Celexa has a chemical structure unrelated to that of other SSRI's. It is a highly selective inhibitor of serotonin reuptake with little or no affinity for other neurotransmitter receptors. This selectivity may result in fewer sexual side effects, such as decreased libido and delayed ejaculation, than other SSRI's. Celexa may also cause less drug interactions, which could make the antidepressant a good choice for medically compromised individuals such as the elderly or those with comorbid illness. Additionally, Celexa appears to be safe to use on a long-term basis and may cause less withdrawal when use is stopped
