What is Premature Ejaculation?


Among a number of problems related with the sexual health of men and of course his partner, we find Premature Ejaculation as the most common sexual problem , this is a pathology characterized by a lack of voluntary control over ejaculation. Masters and Johnson stated that a man suffers from premature ejaculation if he ejaculates before his partner achieves orgasm in more than fifty percent of his sexual encounters. Other sex researchers have defined premature ejaculation as occurring if the man ejaculates within two minutes of penetration; however, a survey by Alfred Kinsey, (yes the inquisitive scientist of the movie the recently showed in theaters) made in the 1950s demonstrated that three quarters of men ejaculated within two minutes of penetration in over half of their sexual encounters. Today, most sex therapists understand premature ejaculation as occurring when a lack of ejaculatory control interferes with sexual or emotional well-being in one or both partners. An estimated thirty percent of men suffer from premature ejaculation on a consistent basis.

Premature Ejaculation is believed to be a psychological problem and does not represent any known organic disease involving the male reproductive tract or any known lesions in the brain or nervous system. In short, PE is not a physiological problem or disease, though it manifests physiologically by considering the organ systems directly affected by PE, that include the male reproductive tract (ie, penis, prostate, seminal vesicles, testicles, and their appendages), the portions of the central and peripheral nervous system controlling the male reproductive tract, and the reproductive organ systems of the sexual partner (for the purpose of this discussion, the partner is assumed to be female) that may not be stimulated sufficiently to achieve orgasm. If the PE occurs so early that it happens before commencement of sexual intercourse and the couple is attempting pregnancy, then pregnancy is impossible to achieve unless artificial insemination is used. Perhaps the most affected organ system is the psyche of the partners. Both partners are likely to be dissatisfied emotionally and physically by this problem.

Frequency:In the US: The prevalence rate of PE in American males is estimated to range from 30-70%.Internationally: Estimates for European countries and India mirror the prevalence in the United States. The prevalence in other parts of Asia, Africa, Australia, and elsewhere is unknown.Mortality/Morbidity: No known direct morbidity or mortality results from PE. Race: No reproducible data exist on major differences between racial groups with respect to the incidence or prevalence of PE. Sex: PE is a condition that only affects males. Age: PE can occur at virtually any age in an adult man’s life. It is most common in younger men (aged 18-30 y), but it also may occur in conjunction with secondary impotence in men aged 45-65 years.If you or someone near you suffers from Premature Ejaculation problems you should know that this is a curable condition.
