Does Masturbation Cause Premature Ejaculation?

Masturbation Is Part Of A Healthy Sex Life

There’s no way that masturbation can be a sole cause of premature ejaculation. In fact, it’s necessary for a healthy sex life.

People who never masturbate, both men and women, often have many problems in the bedroom when they start having sex for the first time because they don’t know what to expect.

And for a man who is not able to have sex every single day, masturbation is a great way to relieve yourself – it’s almost essential otherwise you will just feel too horny and frustrated!

Masturbation allows you to discover part of your own sexuality – what you like and don’t like – and helps you to better communicate that to your partner.

Ejaculation Is Quicker With Masturbation

A key difference that you should remember, especially if you are sexually inexperienced with a partner, is that masturbation and sex are different.

Sure, both of them give you pleasure and result in an ejaculation but because you have a feedback loop between your hand and the pleasures that you feel then you can achieve orgasm much more quickly with masturbation.

Your partner may be able to develop their technique and get better but apart from listening to you and watching you, they are never 100% sure that they are hitting the right spots.

So if you have little experience in the bedroom then it is worth reminding yourself that from a physical point of view, she cannot arouse you as well as you can do yourself.

A lot of guys walk into the bedroom expecting to come as quickly as it normally does with masturbation. Because they expect this, they often get anxious and this anxiety feeds into a greater likelihood of premature ejaculation.

The Small Problem With Masturbation

Already we have discovered that masturbation can sometimes give you false expectations of real sex.

Another thing to bear in mind is that sex is so much more than stimulating the penis. Let’s compare it to a masturbation situation.

When you masturbate, you focus on a situation that you control: your thoughts or watching pornography. Then you apply a stimulation to your penis.

Real sex is not just about receiving stimulation and pleasure. It’s also about giving pleasure. Not just during penetration but also during foreplay.

So remember, masturbation is very different to real sex so don’t expect that your ejaculation time for sex should be anything like for masturbation. Drop these expectations when you enter the bedroom.
