However rest assured, it is actually a lot more common than you’d expect. According to Everyday Health, doctors estimate between 20 and 30 per cent of men will experience premature ejaculation at some stage of their lives.
The publication suggests there are three psychological reasons for premature ejaculation:
-Previous sexual experiences that linked sex to excitement and anxiety.
- Anxiety related to sexual performance or other life issues.
- Fear of erectile dysfunction.
So how exactly does one delay ejaculation and become a marathon man in the sack. Well Pete Davidson, star of Saturday Night Live and boyfriend of Ariana Grande, has some, err, advice. Be warned, it’s not ideal and quite confronting.
According to the 24 year-old comedian, Davidson pictures his father’s death to delay ejaculation.
Davidson’s father was a firefighter who passed away in the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York. While Davidson has been fairly open about this traumatic experience, he may have gone a little too far in this instance when talking to radio host Howard Stern.
“I was just thinking of my Dad being burned alive. That’s what I do. I just think of my Dad seeing that fire coming right towards me,” Davidson told Stern in the confronting interview.
There are of course a number of other expert backed methods to delay ejaculation, and although we’ve never slept with Ariana Grande, we imagine we’d turn to these techniques to last the distance before reliving traumatising life events.
Davidson also went on to discuss how he and Ariana began dating, as well as how his his diagnosed borderline personality disorder and lack of confidence affects his romantic life.
“Any time we’re intimate, I’m always apologising and saying thank you. I swear to God. I’m like, you’re awesome for doing this, thank you so much,” Davidson said of sex with Grande.
