Can psychological factors cause sexual problems for men?

ANSWER

Yes. In some cases, premature and inhibited ejaculation are caused by psychological factors, including a strict religious background that causes the person to view sex as sinful, a lack of attraction for a partner, and past traumatic events.

Premature ejaculation, the most common form of sexual dysfunction in men, often is due to nervousness over how well he will perform during sex.
