Is premature ejaculation all in your head?

How much time do you spend worrying about premature ejaculation?

It’s an interesting question to ask, because the chances are that the more you worry about it the more likely it is to happen.

The reason I say this is I believe that worrying about premature ejaculation is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Now what is a self-fulfilling prophecy?

It means that by expecting something to happen you make it happen.

So if you weren’t originally going to orgasm early, by worrying and thinking that you will you in fact make it happen.

Some studies claim that by experiencing the emotional state of worry or nervousness you literally change the chemistry of your body to encourage premature ejaculation.

This is because when you worry your body releases the hormones adrenaline and dopamine into your bloodstream.

And some theories suggest that the presence of these chemical in the bloodstream make early orgasm more likely to happen that if they’re not around.

So that’s the complicated scientific way of explaining why premature ejaculation happens when you worry about it, but doesn’t it make sense intuitively anyway?

I mean, think about it…

If you spend all your time during sex worrying about premature ejaculation, don’t you think it’s much more likely to happen than if you spend all your time thinking about how long you’re going to last and how much the woman you’re with is going to enjoy it?

Personally I don’t need the scientific explanation to know that makes sense.

But whether or not you believe it doesn’t matter.

What matters is whether you’re willing to give it a try.

So do that tonight.

The next time you have sex instead of thinking and worrying about not lasting long in bed, spend your time consciously thinking about how long you’re going to last.

A simple shift in mental attitude could work wonders for you.
