Picture this: you’ve had a bit to drink, but you and your partner are raring to go. Right when your intimate time is about to get started, you’ve already finished. For a lot of men, this is a reality at some point in their lives. But, what is the root of it? Can alcohol cause premature ejaculation?
Craft Medical is taking a look into the many causes of PE (premature ejaculation) to help give our members relief and satisfaction in the ways you’ve been dreaming. Simply put, we want to help you reclaim your vitality. So, let’s start talking about alcohol and PE.
Understanding Premature Ejaculation
Before we talk about the causes of PE, it’s essential to have a quick discussion on premature ejaculation as a whole. When you’re in the moment, experiencing PE might feel like the end of the world. Thankfully, this is far from the truth.
Premature ejaculation is simply a condition where the body ejaculates prior to intercourse or within about a minute of penetration. Of course, there is no set time that a man is supposed to orgasm, but happening this quickly often means that there is an underlying issue.
After all, don’t you want to enjoy your time between the sheets?
Studies show that about 1 in 3 men experience PE at some point during their lives. If this has only happened once or twice, it simply isn’t cause for concern. Most likely, you were just feeling a bit off that day (or maybe it had been a while since you got some).
However, if you find yourself prematurely ejaculating during every sexual encounter you have, whether alone or with a partner, simple treatments are likely to help. You just have to reach out! After all, Craft Medical knows a thing or two about PE.
Can Alcohol Cause PE?
Ah, the million-dollar question: can alcohol cause PE? Chances are, you’ve had a few experiences in the bedroom that didn’t go quite too well after a night of drinking. Yes, sometimes, you can blame this on alcohol. Alcohol and other substances commonly result in sexual complications such as premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, or simply an unsatisfying orgasm.
For some men who experience premature ejaculation consistently, alcohol may actually prolong the experience because of the depressant’s effects on the body. Drinking can lower sexual function, making it more difficult for a man to orgasm or have a high libido. But, of course, all bodies are different, and this can often be the opposite.
In fact, premature ejaculation due to chronic drinking is quite common. Over time, the alcohol build-up in the body can cause severe damage to sexual function, leading to erectile dysfunction and PE.
In general, avoiding alcohol before having sex is the best choice. Alcohol has strange, often serious reactions within the body, making your date night not as appealing as you may have wanted. Whether this is because it ended too early or you simply couldn’t finish, alcohol may easily be the cause of either.
Other Common Causes of Premature Ejaculation
Along with alcohol, there are other common causes of PE that are crucial to discuss. As we mentioned, this happens to about 30% of men at some point in their lives, and the reasons vary all across the board. For some, it is a physical condition that results in premature ejaculation. For others, it is purely emotional.
In terms of physical complications, PE can sometimes be caused by inflammation or infection within the prostate. Other causes may be hormone imbalance, neurotransmitter imbalance, or some sort of inherited trait. None of these are problems to sweep under the rug, as they can create more serious, prolonged issues if not properly treated.
While we all know the effects of physical and biological issues on the body, we often forget about the complex impacts of emotional distress and imbalance.
Certain psychological factors play significant roles in causing PE, such as experiencing too much stress, anxiety, and depression. If you had traumatic sexual experiences in the past — especially as a child — this can also lead to PE and difficulty performing sexually. Even just worrying about prematurely ejaculating can be enough to make it happen. Most of the time, it’s psychological.
Thankfully, you can treat both the physical and psychological conditions that lead to PE. Even if you’ve been suffering from it for a while, that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck. After all, Craft is designed to shatter expectations and help you get your life back.
