Why does communication during sex matter if I have premature ejaculation?

Ian Kerner, PhD
Sexual Health
Communication is key during sex for the man with premature ejaculation (PE). For the man with PE, satisfying your partner through intercourse means waiting until she’s close to orgasm, then getting her on top, pronto. Sure, you could look, listen, and feel to determine her level of arousal. But why rely on guesswork? It’s really important that she tells you that she’s very close, because from a guy’s perspective it can seem like she’s closer to orgasm than she actually is.
