User avatar Has he always had this problem or did it suddenly appear? Does he have any erectile dysfunction? Is he on any antidepressants or blood pressure medications? Does he drink to excess often?

It sounds very much like retarded ejaculation. It is a psychological disorder, and is treated with therapy, even if it just started.

However, he definitely needs to see a doctor to rule out any physical problems, as we can't accurately diagnose over the internet, of course.
