Premature ejaculation: top five facts
Premature ejaculation (PE) is one of the most common sexual dysfunctions among men. PE is bad news for everyone involved.
What is premature ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation (PE) is when a man orgasms uncontrollably, either before or shortly after sexual stimulation begins and sometimes with little or no physical contact.
With premature ejaculation, the orgasm – lovemaking’s golden moment – becomes an unwanted, unwilled visitor who spoils the sexual experience and leaves both partners unsatisfied. PE is one of the most common sexual dysfunctions among males, affecting nearly every man at some point in his life.
What causes premature ejaculation?
PE may result from both physical and psychological problems, though it is usually difficult to find a clearly discernable cause. PE is most often the scourge of the young and inexperienced, men who tend to cum prematurely because of the nervousness they feel about how well they will perform. With experience and age men usually learn how to control (to some extent) ejaculation, but this isn’t always the case.
Other psychological factors that can cause PE include: a religious background in which sex is stigmatised, work-related stress and anxiety, guilt, depression, or past sexual trauma. Physical causes may include: an oversensitive glans penis (the top part of the penis), hormonal problems, past injuries, drug side-effects or neurological disease. In some cases, PE is simply caused by disinterest, or lack of attraction, for a sexual partner.
What can you do?
In many cases, PE declines as a man accumulates sexual experience and gains control over his ejaculation, much as children eventually gain control over their bladder during toilet training. Using relaxation or distraction techniques during sex can help delay orgasm, but the best way to gain mastery over ejaculation is by identifying the sensations that signal an approaching orgasm and communicating with your partner to tone down stimulation for a while.
Using a condom or numbing creams and gels, which reduce sensation, is another option. You could also experiment with different positions, or speak to your doctor about medications that may help treat PE.
Premature ejaculation isn’t good for either partner
There’s no doubt about it: premature ejaculation is bad news for your sex life. If a man is always worried about ejaculating too soon, it’s going to be difficult for him to relax and fully enjoy the lovemaking experience. But his partner is also left unsatisfied, especially if the man is so focused on delaying ejaculation that he ignores his partner’s sexual needs. For them, not only does the party end right after it starts, but they also might feel neglected if all of their lover’s attention is devoted to delaying ejaculation. As a result, both parties are left unsatisfied, and if this goes on long enough the couple may begin to avoid lovemaking, and even intimacy in general.
Men are not the only ones
According to a recent study in Portugal – the first and only study on female PE – it’s not only men who find themselves ejaculating prematurely. A recent survey of women in Portugal found that 40 per cent of those surveyed occasionally orgasm faster than they intend to during sex, while about 3 per cent met the criteria for being described as having a PE dysfunction.

Hi Job, first masturbation doesn’t lead to infertility regardless of how long a person has been doing it. This is just a myth. If a person’s reproductive organs are health, they will continue to produce sperm. On the other hand however, if you have been trying to get pregnant for longer than a year, it is important that you seek the services of a Specialist Gynecologist. They will be able to carry out tests as necessary and advice you and your partner on what to do.

Hi Jeff! Thank you for…
Hi Jeff! Thank you for reaching out to us. We’re afraid treating PE is not as simple as just taking a pill. In order to treat it correctly, now must first understand why it is happening. Premature Ejaculation is caused by a number of reasons including fear, anxiety or even stress. Anxiety that one will not perform can make him ejaculate much earlier or stress from home or work. In other cases, particularly in young men it could be the result of sexual inexperience, and so as the young man gets older he also gains more experience in controlling ejaculation.
There are a few things you one can do to improve control and last longer. In the short term, you can take short breaks during intercourse, you can also apply firm pressure underneath the penis during intercourse to push blood out of the penis hence decreasing sexual tension, distract yourself to think about other non sexual things or use penis desensitizers. Penis desensitizers come in the form of sprays and creams that can be applied on the penis minutes before intercourse and they help to delay ejaculation. Sometimes a condom can help reduce the sensitivity on the penis.
In the long term one can ensure they eat healthy and avoid lots of processed foods, begin to exercise which improves blood flow in the body, reduce or eliminate the use of alcohol including smoking and more importantly reduce stress during intercourse. Foreplay will also play a critical role in preparing your partner and getting them closer to an orgasm.

Hello Brian, thank you for…
Hello Brian, thank you for reaching out to us. If you are absolutely sure you want to stop, you should know that it will not be easy. This is because sex leads to the release of endorphins which is better known as the pleasure hormone. Second, masturbation has now become part of your arousal template which is the total amount of thoughts, activities, stimuli, smells etc. that arouse a person sexually.
To stop masturbating, you will need to identify the things that lead you to masturbate like seeing something, or just boredom. Also, when you get the urge to masturbate occupy yourself with another activity.
Please note that it could take you 21 days to 6 months to work on this and it might not work. If you are really committed, try and find a counselor or a therapist to help you through. Good luck!

Hello Denni, there are three…
Hello Denni, there are three types of erections. psychogenic, – are caused by what a person sees or imagines. reflexogenic,- come as a result of being touched or physically stimulated and nocturnal erections that happen at night because of interactions between hormones and the central nervous system. What you are experiencing is a mixture of psychogenic and reflexogenic erections. In both cases, you need to identify the triggers and avoid them. When relationships are new, it is natural that you will have an intense physical attraction to each other and want to express that sexually. Another way of avoiding these erections is to try and change focus, take deep breaths, try and calm down, and maybe shift your standing or sitting position.
