Thanks for your query.

From the description it appears that you are suffering from delayed ejaculation.

Delayed ejaculation can have psychological or physical causes.

Common psychological causes are:

•Strict religious background
•Lack of attraction for partner
•Conditioning caused by a habit of unusual masturbation
•Traumatic events (such as being discovered masturbating or having illicit sex, or learning one's partner is having an affair)

Physical causes may include:

•Use of certain drugs (such as prozac, mellaril, and guanethidine)
•Nervous system disease, such as a stroke or nerve damage to the spinal cord or back

Hope I answered all your questions. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
