I am a 24 year old male who has been married for less than a year to a woman I have bee with for 8 years. We have been sexually active for most of that time and have not had any real problems. Within the past 9 months or so I have been experiencing premature ejaculation. it seems that I cannot last much more than a minute (sometimes less) and I cannot get her to climax. She has been very understanding but as time has passed she is understandably frustrated. A sexual experience now normally means that she will not get satisfied and I feel insufficient and depressed because of this. She has a fairly straightforward approach to sex. There is not alot of foreplay, she enjoys oral stimulation but really only as a precursor to penetration. She rarely employs the use of toys and does not want to be "finished" by a toy. This kind of reduces the tools in my toolbox to my own performance which has been severely lacking. This has led to less intercourse because I do not want to be the only one seeking gratification in sex. I worry that over time this will lead to lessened sexual attraction and therefore very sparse sexual encounters with her. I can last longer during masturbation and fellatio but during intercourse or even using a Fleshlight does not last very long. I am contemplating seeing a physician to see if there are any physical explanations. I would like to see a sex therapist but I have no insurance and counseling sessions are far outside of my college budget. Personally I am fumbling my way through trying Kegel PC Muscle Exercises and trying to be mindful of my breathing. I have also heard that taking zinc supplements are beneficial in increasing testosterone and ginseng for energy. I thought this would be something that would fade away but it has not. I do not want to simply accept that this is what my new sex life is going to be. I would like to take proactive steps to improve the situation.
