What is premature ejaculation?
Much has been written about how to define premature ejaculation, but it boils down to this: When a man consistently ejaculates sooner during sexual intercourse than he or his partner would like, it’s said that he has “ejaculated prematurely.” In the medical world, experts generally agree that premature ejaculation is defined as when a man frequently ejaculates less than two minutes into intercourse. But the amount of time it takes the man to ejaculate is not important in defining the condition; it’s the result of the sexual experience that helps to define whether there’s a problem. If both partners are happy and feel satisfied, then there’s no issue. But if the partner is routinely distressed and feels that there was not sufficient time to enjoy the experience, then the man should seek to prolong the time to ejaculation.
How long should intercourse last?
This is a tough question to answer, as it depends on many factors, not the least of which is your partner’s preferences. However, it might be useful to see what a 2008 survey of Canadian and American sex therapists found: According to this group, the the average time for heterosexual intercourse is about seven minutes. This group went on to say that, on average, one to two minutes is not enough time for a man to satisfy a woman, three to seven minutes is adequate, seven to 13 minutes is desirable, and 10 to 30 minutes is too long.
On the other hand, a Cosmopolitan magazine poll found the “sweet spot” to be 15-25 minutes, not including foreplay, while a Men’s Health article put the range at 7-10 minutes. As you can see, your partner’s mileage may vary.
What causes premature ejaculation?
Although it’s not always possible to figure out why a man experiences premature ejaculation, the latest medical studies point to two things: higher-than-normal penis sensitivity and reduced levels of serotonin (a naturally produced chemical that helps with nerve connectivity in the brain). Other things that can cause premature ejaculation or make it worse include stress, anxiety and medical side-effects. No matter what the cause, it’s usually treatable, often with an over-the-counter solution.
Is premature ejaculation a mental disorder?
For a long time, experts thought premature ejaculation was a mental problem – that it was “all your head,” but that’s not what experts believe now. Today, experts know more about penis sensitivity and serotonin levels, and how these factors and others can cause premature ejaculation.
How common is premature ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation is extremely common. In fact, as many as one out of three men have experienced premature ejaculation at some time. It’s easily the most common male sexual problem, and it affects men of all ages and races.
Is premature ejaculation the same as erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is when a man has trouble achieving an erection. With premature ejaculation, the man can get an erection but he ejaculates sooner than intended.
Does premature ejaculation start at puberty or can it happen later?
Both are possible. If a man has always experienced premature ejaculation during sex, it’s called “lifelong premature ejaculation.” If the condition begins later in life, it’s called “acquired premature ejaculation.” Both can be helped with PREBOOST wipes.
When should I see my doctor?
