Premature Ejaculation (PE) is the most common sexual dysfunction complaint in men younger than 40 years.
Many men around the world ask themselves this question every time they have sex with their partners and feel an uncomfortable sensation of guilt after looking at her disappointment for the short sexual encounter they have just had, a situation that inevitable leads them to the sad conclusion that maybe they indeed are “too quick”.
Masters and Johnson have stated that a man ejaculates too quick if he does it before his partner achieves orgasm in more than fifty percent of his sexual encounters. Other sex researchers consider an early ejaculation the one occurring within two minutes of penetration, though there are some discrepancies on this timing. This condition of “quick ejaculation” is what is called Premature Ejaculation and in the US the prevalence rate in American males is estimated to range from 30-70%.
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 , this is the male reproductive tract.
Apart from the dissatisfaction in the sexual life of the partners and the stress this situation brings to the relation, if ejaculation continually occurs so early that it happens before commencement of sexual intercourse, as it does in grave cases of premature ejaculation, and the couple is attempting pregnancy, then pregnancy is impossible to achieve unless artificial insemination is used.
Many men think this is a hopeless situation, but that’s far from being true. There is cure for premature ejaculation and this can be achieved in a few weeks by treating the origin of the illness, this is the mind of the individual and by having the patience and discipline for following the correct techniques that will led to the total cure of the condition and the regaining of a healthy and satisfactory sexual life for both partners.
