Specializes in General Practice

Masturbation: No. Now that does not mean that you have not had a part in this by letting yourself lose control and have ejaculation so very quickly and not training your brain and your body to slow down. Premature ejaculation takes some time to practice sexual stimulation and taking your time to ejaculate. One must edge up to the orgasm and back off and practice this. There are books to read.

Specializes in Psychiatry

Masturbation: Masturbation does not cause premature ejaculation, but climaxing by yourself is a different situation from sexual activity with a partner. This can be accompanied by all kinds of anxieties which can interfere with your experience. You can get help with this -- there are many possible ways.
