Anxiety causes premature ejaculation as the chemicals released in the brain increase the speed at which sperm move through the tubes. However SSRIs have the opposite effect. Taking SSRIs for a long time can screw up the system. The more confidence you get, the less anxious you will be so the longer you will last. I think its just a case of practice makes perfect.
I really hope i dont want to sound contrasending here, but all women are different i have met girls who really works with and some who it really doesn't. Point is dont be too disheartened if it hasn't go with one girl as next girl is likely to be completely different.
Goodluck my friend
Sorry I hit wrong edit ........LOL
