Hi there, thank you for posting your question on Ehealthforum. This is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor.

Ejaculatory incompetence or delayed ejaculation is complex. Usually the man does not have the same difficulty when alone and masturbating but, for some reason finds it very difficult to finish when his penis is inside his partner’s vagina.

One cause of this, though by no means the only cause, is the so-called Traumatic Masturbatory Syndrome or TMS. This in turn can arise from the practise of masturbating in the face down position.

Perhaps you may need to discuss this with a Sex Councillor. It can be resolved through behavioural therapy. Show your partner how you masturbate, hold her hand while she does it for you. She should also verbally encourage you to come. Once you learn how to ejaculate in her company you can then move on to intercourse.

This will take time and patience and there may be some setbacks. But with perseverance you will succeed.



Dr Andrew Rynne.
