Will drinking alcohol treat premature ejaculation?

Sexual Health

The negative effects of alcohol overuse, including liver disease, depression, an increased risk of accidents, and, of course, addiction, are well documented. Plus, alcohol consumption can raise your risk of developing erectile dysfunction, a condition that often goes hand in hand with PE, particularly in older men.
