Sexual Dysfunction in Men
Sexual dysfunction is the term used to describe a problem related to not being able to function sexually. All men will experience some form of sexual dysfunction at certain periods in their life. More chronic issues of sexual dysfunction can potentially be related back to how a man feels about himself as a man. A man who believes himself (even if unconsciously) to be emasculated (i.e. not man enough) will most likely experience ongoing sexual dysfunctions.
Sexual dysfunction paradoxically reinforces the negative self-belief and acts to protect the man from exposing that belief. It is better to not perform sexually than it is to perform and be found out to be lacking or inadequate as a man.
Premature ejaculation is the experience of having an orgasm extremely soon after physical intimacy is initiated. Like impotence, this experience is one that all men will have experienced occasionally. Premature ejaculation is a time a flight response to the fear of lacking in one’s power.
