I’m 23 and have been dating this girl, 22, for two years.
But I’ve had the same problem in past relationships.
Alcohol helps but I don’t want to drink every time I think I might have sex.
She says it’s fine but I can tell she’s just being nice.

DEIDRE SAYS: Premature ejaculation is very common.
Usually it’s a psychological issue, rather than a physical one. Alcohol probably helps because you are more relaxed.
However, the more you worry about this, the more it’s likely to happen.
