Feeling down about PE? Find out what to do here

Mind your 🍆.

Here at smilingdick.com, we know that when your 🍆 is not behaving itself, it can stop you from enjoying the great sex you deserve. But once you get your thoughts off your disobedient member, what does it feel like when you check in with your mind?

Like any medical issue, there’s a whole lot more to premature ejaculation than climaxing too early. Below the surface, there’s some negative impacts on your emotional and mental wellbeing.

It’s been proven that men who suffer from premature ejaculation are also more likely to suffer from depression and anxiety, with their concerns often becoming intrusive and debilitating.

Yes, premature ejaculation does come with a unique set of emotions to work through — but it’s important to know that with the right tools and techniques, you and your 🍆, will be feeling 😊.

How PE can affect you

When a health issue begins to interfere with your sense of who you are, the ripple effects to your emotional and mental health can be dramatic. All of a sudden, something we all assume to be ‘natural’ or automatic — sex — becomes a real test of your abilities.

In a survey we ran of over 2,000 men, we begun to understand the full effect of premature ejactulation on mental health and emotional wellbeing. Here are some of the results:

  • 36% of men lost all confidence in the bedroom
  • 25% stopped having sex as a result
  • 22% felt a strain on their relationship
  • 20% avoided new relationships altogether
  • 18% felt changes in their mental health
  • 13% were drinking to absorb their anxieties

Many of the negative feelings that surround PE stem from not feeling like you’re not in control of your own body. And chances are, you’ve probably avoided talking about your problems in bed as well. It feels embarrassing, and opening up also makes it real. What you need to understand is that avoiding the issue is a stress unto its own. The longer you leave it, the worse that stress becomes.

Treating premature ejaculation

Treating premature ejaculation combines a two-pronged approach. It involves ongoing physical training to create new responses to stimulation, but also requires building up mental strength.

Numbing creams and sprays, pills and natural remedies simply mask the symptoms of PE and won’t cure it. Prolong, on the other hand combines the science behind the stop-start method with a vibrating device and six-week training program.

Not only do our independent clinical trials show that the benefits of using Prolong begin in week 1, reaching their max at week 6 of the program, the study even showed an overall improvement for distress like anxiety and depression.

On top of training with Prolong, you could try to incorporate come mental training into your everyday life. Why not try downloading one of the many apps that give you breathing exercises or meditation prompts throughout the day, like Headspace. Just 5 minutes a day can make a really big change in how you approach your anxiety.
