At the University of Michigan School of Social Work Sexual Health Certificate Program, one of the favorite subjects I taught last year was on the subject of male sexual functioning. When there are “penis problems” it can have an enormous effect on our sense of self and our relationships. Whenever anyone is struggling with men’s sexual functioning, I am hyper-focused on intervening with solutions ASAP.
ERECTILE DIFFICULTIES (ED)
ED can be caused by many things. After a first session, I generally have a good idea as to what the cause may be, and will work with you to create an appropriate treatment plan.
The first thing we want to rule out is a physical health issue. If you decide to get a physical before you come to see me, tell your medical provider that you are experiencing ED so they will know what to check for. And if appropriate, once I have seen you, I can refer you to one of the exceptional urologists I work with.
Back in the day of the caveman, the strong survived by ejaculating quickly. Man was never more vulnerable than when he was copulating. Today, you may not need to worry about being eaten by a woolly mammoth, however you may feel just as vulnerable with your partner if you are not lasting as long as you want. You don’t need to suffer with shame or embarrassment any longer. There are a variety of ways to treat rapid ejaculation, and we’ll work together to find the right solution for you.
Men who experience difficulty ejaculating can feel tremendous shame, which can add a great deal of stress to the relationship. It can be equally difficult for the spouse or partner who frequently wonders things like why she isn’t capable of having her partner ejaculate inside her. I have had many clients who had never previously ejaculated inside their partner and, after treatment, they could.
