Good idea (mostly): It's not exactly a thing you 'fix' but you sure can and should learn ways to manage it. CBT therapy will do that in general and if you ask for experience in treating sexual issues it will be even better. find a therapist you can work well with. Also, be as open as you can w/ partner - understanding is likely from one who cares or even loves you! Relaxed safe sex-play of all sorts may help too.
