embarrassed man

After coming off an SSRI, Zoloft, a few months ago, I have struggled with severe premature ejaculation and a slight case of ED. I could really use some help. Do you have any suggestions for things I could try, or people like yourself that could help me?

    You don’t state your age or why exactly you took Zoloft or for how long, so I don’t have much to go on. Still, seems to me you have two options—self-help or professional therapy. I recommend the former first, and if you still have issues, the latter.

    In case you don’t know, PE is men’s #1 sex problem. Fortunately, among men not troubled by other issues, it’s also usually fairly easy to resolve. Over the past 60 years, sex therapists have developed a program that teaches around 90% of men to last as long as they’d like—without drugs. I’ve distilled the sex therapy program into a low-cost, self-help e-booklet, The Cure for Premature Ejaculation. I suggest you work your way through the program over a few months. The Cure carries a money-back guarantee through PayPal, so it’s risk-free. But your PE may well be complicated by other mental health issues, so it’s hard to say if my e-booklet will do the trick.

    You say you’re also experiencing “a slight case” of ED. Like I said, I know next to nothing about you, and ED has many risk factors. But a big one is worry/stress/anxiety, for example worries about life after Zoloft and stress about PE. If you’ve never read up on ED, I suggest you obtain my low-cost e-book, Enjoy the Best Sex of Your Life. Its 135 chapters include several on erections and ED, and may help you understand what’s happening with you. (The Cure for PE is one chapter in the e-book, so if you get the book, no need to buy The Cure separately.)

    If self-help tools don’t provide sufficient benefit, then I’d suggest consulting a sex therapist. If you’re unfamiliar with sex therapy, the therapist does NOT have sex with you and does NOT watch you have sex. Sex therapy is a form of talk-based psychotherapy with “homework.” It usually takes four to six months of weekly one-hour sessions. It costs $150-250/hour, though many therapists discount fees for those who can’t afford standard rates. For more, read my low-cost e-article, An Intimate Look at Sex Therapy (also a chapter in my e-book), and/or see the film, “Hope Springs” with Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones. To find a sex therapist near you, visit the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, the Society for Sex Therapy and Research, or the American Board of Sexology.

    I wish you great sex.
