Premature Ejaculation is the most common sexual condition affecting men, but how much do you really know about early ejaculation commonly known as ED?
Defined loosely as when a man ejaculates too quickly during sexual intercourse, premature ejaculation is the most common ejaculation problem for men.
However, it can be difficult to define. This is because quite simply there is no cast-iron definition of how long sex should last, and it’s up to each individual man or couple to decide whether they are happy with the length of their intercourse.
What causes premature ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation can be caused by a variety of factors, both physical and psychological. It could be the result of prostate problems, thyroid problems or the effects of recreational drugs.
Likewise, it could be due to mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, stress or problems within the relationship.
As such a vague condition, it can be difficult to really understand early ejaculation. Thankfully, we’re here to help you bust some myths. Let’s take a look.
Although anxiety can indeed be a factor in premature ejaculation, it is not a set rule that early ejaculation sufferers also live with anxiety. This is because there is a distinction to be made between an anxiety disorder and sex-specific stress.
The latter, just like any other stress, is something that can be worked on fairly smoothly by talking through issues with partners, trying different positions and not taking things too seriously.
Premature ejaculation is more often than not a situational condition, meaning the circumstances surrounding intercourse have a significant part to play in the duration of a man’s performance.
Studies show that when men feel more relaxed – usually with a long-term partner – they tend to perform for longer, while more casual relations can lead to increased feelings of stress and excitement which can bring on early ejaculation.
Likewise, life stressors like family issues or money troubles can also bring on the condition.
It’s widely thought that early ejaculation and erectile dysfunction exclusively affect men on opposite ends of the age-scale (i.e. young people suffer from PE and old people suffer from ED).
In actual fact, premature ejaculation can strike at any age. One survey found that the rate of sufferers remains fairly steady at 25-30% from teens to age 50.
Men regularly project their early ejaculation anxieties onto their partners, but research actually shows that partners don’t care as much as you might think.
For women especially, the rate of orgasm in sex in general is only around 25%, with traditional methods often not doing enough to bring about climax on their own.
Other methods are therefore welcomed by many women, and these don’t often need men to maintain an erection.
As we said earlier, premature ejaculation is hard to define. Consequently, this leads many men to assume they have it just because they can’t last for extended periods of time.
The common consensus among health professionals is that being unable to perform for more than two minutes is an indicator of early ejaculation.
However, many men that last longer than this still assume they are sufferers.
For those who do indeed live with ED, effective and safe treatment is available. We use natural African herbs that has no side effects.
