Another problem that men have is delayed orgasm or inability to reach orgasm.

There are many causes of this. Certainly as you get older, it’s more difficult to reach orgasm. If you have lowered testosterone, it’s more difficult to reach orgasm and also men that are taking medications for depression such as SSRI’s will actually have their orgasmic threshold elevated and it’s more difficult to reach orgasm.

If you have more questions around having delayed orgasm, you could either see your family physician to find out why your orgasm is delayed and or see a sexual therapist. They can be very helpful.
