Can women misinterpret PE as a sexual inexperience?

Ian Kerner, PhD
Sexual Health
Women who are uninformed about premature ejaculation (PE) sometimes think that it is a sign of immaturity or inexperience. Can you blame them? If you don’t discuss PE and what it really is, her only exposure to it may be the way it’s portrayed in movies or TV shows. That leaves her with an image of an overly horny adolescent who can’t control himself. Yet, that’s often hardly the case. Guys with PE can be very experienced, mature, and tuned in to their partners’ needs -- but they can’t translate those intentions into actions.
