Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates sooner during sexual intercourse than he or his partner would like. Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint. Estimates vary, but as many as 1 out of 3 men say they experience this problem at some time. As long as it happens infrequently, it’s not cause for concern.
Premature Ejaculation Is Not A Disease.
One of the biggest misconceptions surrounding PE is that it is a sickness or disease affecting certain men only. Nothing can be far from the truth. It is a well established fact that even the most healthy males can and do experience PE at some point. While in some men the condition is a one time occurrence, in others it can happen a few times. Others yet might suffer from the more acute state of PE in which there is little or no control over the time it takes to ejaculate; which is typically within less than a minute of vaginal penetration. Numerous studies have clearly indicated that PE can have both biological and psychological triggers.
Premature Ejaculation Is A Common Condition
It has been estimated that more than seventy percent males experience PE (also known as rapid ejaculation) at some point while nearly twenty percent males between the ages of 18 – 59 suffer from regular PE. In some cases, lack of sexual activity can also leave a man overly anxious about having sex. Even among healthy males with an active sex life, PE is not uncommon as per- performance anxiety can lower the ejaculatory threshold and hamper what should otherwise be a pleasurable encounter for both individuals.
