Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is when a man ejaculates (or comes) sooner than he or his partner wishes. It occurs most commonly either during or very soon after penetration, but just thinking about a sexually stimulating situation can trigger ejaculation and sometimes it happens even before any direct stimulation of the penis occurs. Ejaculation often mostly occurs within two minutes of penetration. Some men last much longer and some come much more quickly. The important point to remember is that if ejaculation occurs sooner than the man and/or his partner wishes and this is causing distress in the sexual relationship, then it can be regarded as ‘premature’ or ‘rapid’.


Premature ejaculation is one of the most common, aggravating, sexual problems affecting men. It can occur at any age and under any situation, but it is most commonly a younger man's problem especially in the teens and twenties. In many ways, it is more related to the novelty of the sexual experience (new partner or different situation) than to the man’s age, although most men will experience it at some time. It only becomes a problem when one or other partner gets upset about it. It is very common and more than 40% of men are affected.


Causes
Most cases are caused by just being unable to control the ejaculatory response but there are also some conditions in older men that may interfere with ejaculation, such as changes in the prostate gland, hardening of the arteries, diabetes and neurological disorders. It has been generally thought that early sexual experiences were important in the shaping of future ejaculatory habits. Initial nervousness and hurry, such as in having sex in the back seat of a car, one-night stands, fear of discovery or of being heard at home through the wall, and other unsatisfactory early sexual experiences may contribute to establishing a pattern of rapid ejaculation.


Also a common reason for premature ejaculation is relationship disorders. Some of the components of relationship distress are: sexually demanding partners, unrealistic expectations, different needs and desires in a couple, dissatisfaction, lack of communication and trust, outside affairs, a partner who also has a sexual problem and an excessive desire to please a partner. Derogatory remarks made at the time tend to make matters worse and can lead to a cycle of failure and anxiety.
