It’s not so important

You can live with Premature Ejaculation; it’s a problem that doesn’t really affect your sex life

Premature Ejaculation (PE) can have a negative effect on the quality of life. It is often difficult for men to relax and enjoy the experience of lovemaking if they are worried that ejaculation may occur too soon. Also, the partner may not be getting ample satisfaction from the experience and may avoid lovemaking, and also intimacy in general, as a result.
Men with PE often feel a whole range of negative feelings that stop them from speaking to anyone about the problem – depression, embarrassment, lack of confidence, loss of self-esteem, and even avoidance of sexual activity, to name just a few.

Continued PE ultimately leads to greater problems with partners and often disrupts relationships.
