Data gathered by the National Health and Social Life Survey (NHSLS) indicate that there are health related and psychosocial predictors of sexual difficulties. In particular, “the risk of PE is substantially higher in men who have poor to fair health, have emotional problems, or are under stress. Men who experience a >20% drop in household income are also at increased risk.”

It is interesting that stress, whether from financial misfortune or from poor health can lead to acquired PE. Erectile dysfunction and PE often occur together and ED in particular can be a sign of an underlying illness wreaking havoc on a man’s sexual function.
