Stress can cause Premature Ejaculation

Stress reduces the enjoyment of pleasure, increases sensitivity to pain and stimulus and can cause occasional impotence and premature ejaculation. In fact, a higher prevalence of anxiety symptoms has been observed in males attending to sexology clinics.

Psychological factors may contribute to premature ejaculation although in many cases these alone are not the only nor the main cause of this problem.
