Some patients with premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction do well with sex therapy.  This involves talking about a man's relationships and sexual experiences.  These sessions can often reduce a man's performance anxiety by finding effective ways of dealing with stress.  Sex Therapy can often gain some insight into the causes and reasons for a man's premature ejaculation and/or erectile dysfunction as well as making recommendations on how to get better ejaculatory control and better erections.

Typical issues that can benefit from sex therapy are erectile dysfunction, pre-mature ejaculation, inability to ejaculate, lack of desire, sexual addiction, problems masturbating, concerns over sexual orientation, sexual confidence, intimacy and sexual relationship concerns.  Sex therapy often helps alleviate the concern men have over the size of their penis or testicles or the amount they ejaculate or how often they masturbate.

If the doctor determines that the patient can benefit from a prescription medication, that will be prescribed at the end of the therapy session.

Sex therapy often works best when it is used in conjunction with other modalities of treatment.

While many men see significant improvement after just one or two sessions, some men require 2-5 sessions to achieve long term benefit.  While many men may benefit from sex therapy, younger and less sexually experienced men are more likely to have an improvement.
