Are you an aspiring or Certified Sex Coach™️ who struggles to support individuals dealing with premature ejaculation? You’re not alone, and this blog post is here to help.

At Sex Coach U, we recognize that language matters, especially regarding sensitive topics like sexual concerns. That’s why we prefer the term “early ejaculation” instead of “premature ejaculation.” Our approach to sex coaching is based on the belief that using language that speaks to the client’s experienceーrather than diagnosing or pathologizing themーis important. Terms like “premature ejaculation” can often reinforce the shame and stigma that individuals may already feel. We strive to create a safe and supportive space for all clients to explore and improve their sexual experiences.

In this post, we will cover a range of topics related to early ejaculation, including its definition and prevalence, physical and psychological causes, and individualized coping strategies. We will also explore the importance of involving clients’ partners in the coaching process and addressing any communication or intimacy issues they may be experiencing.

Our goal with this blog post is to encourage you to approach early ejaculation with a new perspective that empowers individuals and helps them find greater fulfillment in their sexual experiences. We hope that the information we provide will inspire you to think differently about early ejaculation and that you’ll feel more equipped to support individuals experiencing it. Let’s dive in together and explore the world of early ejaculation.

Understanding “Premature Ejaculation”

According to the American Urological Association, men and people with penises “who ejaculate before or shortly after penetration, without a sense of control, and who experience distress related to this condition may be diagnosed with Premature Ejaculation (PE).”

Early ejaculationーwhich we define more simply as ejaculating sooner than desiredーis a common concern for many individuals and can often cause distress and impact sexual satisfaction for all parties involved. Studies have shown that early ejaculation affects approximately 20-30% of men and people with penises at some point in their lives.

There are both physical and psychological causes of early ejaculation. Physical causes can include medical conditions such as diabetes, hormonal imbalances, or prostate issues, while psychological causes can include anxiety, stress, or relationship issues. 

As a sex coach, it is crucial to explore each client’s experiences and avoid making generalizations or assumptions about their concerns. By taking a holistic and personalized approach to coaching, you can help your clients identify the underlying causes of their early ejaculation and develop strategies that work for them to manage it.

Empowering and Depathologizing Approaches

Pathologizing early ejaculationーin other words, treating it as a medical condition that needs to be fixedーcan be harmful and reinforce feelings of shame and inadequacy that individuals may already be experiencing. Instead, it’s essential to empower clients to view early ejaculation as a natural part of the sexual experience that can be managed in a way that feels right for them.

As a sex coach, creating a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to share their experiences and feelings is crucial. This means avoiding language or behaviors that can be stigmatizing or dismissive of their concerns. For example, using terms like “one-minute man” can be hurtful and reinforce negative self-perceptions. Even the term “early ejaculator” may be considered stigmatizing because each individual is more than the issue they’re currently experiencing. Using “early ejaculator” can feel like you’re labeling the person AS the problem, which can contribute to a negative self-view. 

Instead, sex coaches can use empowering and depathologizing language, which normalizes the experience and emphasizes that it’s a common concern many people face. 

Sex coaches can also adopt behaviors that promote empowerment and reduce shame, such as actively listening to clients, validating their experiences, and offering personalized strategies that consider their unique needs and preferences. Using this approach, sex coaches can help clients develop a positive and accepting attitude toward their sexual experiences, leading to greater satisfaction and fulfillment in their lives.

Strategies for Coaching Premature Ejaculation

Managing early ejaculation can involve a variety of strategies tailored to the individual’s unique experience and needs. As a sex coach, it’s important to use a holistic approach that considers all aspects of a client’s sexual experience.

One approach is to use the MEBES© model (Mind, Emotions, Body, Energy, and Spirit), which involves all five parts of the sexual self, including their mental and emotional state, physical sensations and responses, energy levels, and spiritual connection. 

Clients can experience challenges in any or all of these areas, and the MEBES© Signature System can be used to assess and address these challenges. By using the MEBES© model, sex coaches can help clients identify areas where they may be stuck and provide tailored strategies.

For example, if a client is experiencing anxiety or stress related to their sexual performance, a sex coach may suggest mindfulness techniques, such as meditation or visualization exercises, to help them focus on the present moment and reduce feelings of worry or distraction. If a client is experiencing physical discomfort during sex, a sex coach may suggest experimenting with different positions or incorporating techniques such as breathwork to help them better control their sensations and responses.

Remember that what works for one person may not work for another. For example, if a client expresses that a particular strategy or technique did not work for them, it is important to adopt a supportive and open-minded approach. You could encourage open communication and exploration of alternative options, allowing the client to express their specific concerns and challenges. This process of feedback and adjustment ensures that the coaching sessions remain responsive to the client’s evolving circumstances, fostering a safe and empowering environment for their sexual growth and well-being.

In addition to these techniques, it’s important to address any underlying physical or psychological causes of early ejaculation. For instance, if a client is experiencing anxiety or depression, referring out to a psychologist comfortable with addressing these types of issues may improve their sexual function. Similarly, if an underlying medical condition is causing the issue, such as hormonal imbalances or nerve damage, referring to a medical doctor to address the root cause may be necessary to effectively manage the symptoms.

You may not know exactly what the psychological of physiological issue is, so if you suspect one of these might be the source of your client’s challenges, it’s best to refer out for testing, evaluation, and possibly treatment.

Communicating with Clients’ Partners

As sex coaches, we understand that sexual issues not only impact the individual but also their partners. We may want to consider involving clients’ partners in the sex coaching process so that together you can address any communication or intimacy issues they may be experiencing. By including partners, we can create a more collaborative and supportive approach to addressing early ejaculation.

Effective communication strategies are key in helping clients and their partners discuss early ejaculation in a healthy and productive way. Encouraging open and honest communication, active listening, and using “I” statements can create a safe and non-judgmental space for all parties to share their feelings and needs.

Empowering Clients for Fulfilling Sexual Experiences

Early ejaculation is a common sexual concern that can impact individuals of any gender. Sex coaches need to take an empowering and depathologizing approach when supporting clients with this issue. By creating a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to share their experiences and feelings, sex coaches can help clients view early ejaculation as a natural part of their sexual experience rather than a problem to be fixed (unless, of course, there is an underlying issue that can be resolved with psychological or medical treatment).

Sex coaches can use the MEBES© model to assess each client’s situation by considering various aspects of their life that may contribute to their concerns. Using this model, sex coaches can work with clients to develop personalized and holistic strategies for managing early ejaculation.

As a sex coach, continuing your education and training is important to best support your clients. You can provide the most effective support by staying up-to-date with the latest research and techniques. We hope this blog post has inspired you to approach “premature” or early ejaculation in a new light. May you be empowered to help your clients feel more fulfilled and satisfied in their sexual experiences.
