How can premature ejaculation be misread as disinterest?

Ian Kerner, PhD
Sexual Health
Your partner may view your premature ejaculation (PE) -- or the way you deal with it -- as a sign that you’re not interested. That’s because many guys with PE tend to avoid foreplay or sex altogether as a way of hiding the problem -- out of sight, out of mind. Or they may make up excuses to eschew sex after foreplay so that their partners don’t discover that they’ve already ejaculated. If you act like this, you aren’t fooling anyone in the long run. She’ll be left feeling confused and undesired, but she’ll know something’s wrong, and you’ll both feel miserable. Sadly, lots of guys would rather allow their partners to feel like this than to admit the truth.
