Statistically speaking, 1 in 3 men suffer from premature ejaculation. And that sucks. Imagine ending a joyride as soon as you get in the car. You want to be a stud muffin in bed, but you can't. And it is hurting you and your relationships. But if you are brave enough to approach the subject, there is something you can do about it. But before we get there, here are 10 things only people who suffer from "The American Pie" syndrome will understand:

1. You don't want to be this guy, ever.

The party started too early:

And it ended before you wanted it to:

2. Or this guy.

You might employ all sorts of "tactics" before a date.

Though sometimes, it could backfire.

3. You might have self-esteem issues.

And it can sometimes get a tad awkward.

4. You try to think of boring, non-sexy things during love-making times:

Hello, grandma? Except there goes your excitement! But if it doesn't....

5. The power of your mind can only work so well.

Baby you're a firework!

6. You try untested and probably harmful products:

Because you're desperate enough to do stupid and unknown things.

7. Only to find that it is your state of mind at work. Remember this?

Boom. Boom. Boom.

Too early.

8. You worry this is the reason you drift apart from your partner.

Because this isn't just your problem to deal with. It affects others.

9. And you think you're the unluckiest person in the world.

You don't sob like that but it is actually kind of sad.

10. Why me?

You feel like Sean Bean.


11. But it doesn't have to be like that. Be brave. Approach the matter. 

Because the first step to fixing any problem, is addressing it!

12. Communicate with your partner.

Relationships are not all about sexy-times. It is more about communication than anything else.

13. Understand the problem. It is all science!

That's why untested products are bad.

14. Diagnose yourself.

The first step to treatment is getting yourself diagnosed. If you are too embarrassed, diagnose yourself first. And then repeat steps 11 and 12.

15. Take control.

Learn how to talk to your doctor about it. Treatment is available.
