Delayed ejaculation: You didn't list any medications or medical problems which would be useful in figuring out what's going on. Best to go see your Family Doc for a medication review & evaluation.

Sexual Dysfunction: The mainstay of medical treatment for premature ejaculation has been ssri type antidepressants. Paxil (paroxetine) 10-20mg is most often used.

Talk to your partner about this issue and remind them that it is not their fault. Talk about other possible positions, stimulation of other parts (scrotum, rectum, neck, ears, etc) to intensify your sexual experience. Performance anxiety may be an issue that a therapist can help with. ...Read more
