TEN TIPS ON HOW TO
ELIMINATE PREMATURE EJACULATION
What is premature ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation is, well, ejaculation that is premature
- that is it occurs before a man wants it, or too quickly during
intercourse to satisfy his partner. This, of course, is relative:
what's considered too quick for someone might be completely normal
What is normal, then?
Studies have shown that it is normal for men to have an
orgasm and ejaculate within 2 to 3 minutes after penetrating the
vagina. This is far quicker than what most men expect or wish (especially
when comparing their performance against those adult film stars.
That's one reason why they're in that business, folks).
There may also be an aspect of expectation on behalf of the man's
partner. Studies have suggested that most women climax after 10
to 15 minutes of intercourse. Keep in mind, however, that the majority
of women (some say between 65 to 75%) are unable to reach orgasm
by intercourse alone. Moreover, it is estimated that about 10% of
women can't reach orgasm at all!
Nevertheless, premature ejaculation exists and is actually a big
problem for many men. Indeed, it is the number one sexual complaint
among men under 50. Some will ejaculate immediately after erection,
right before penetration, or just seconds after it.
What causes premature ejaculation?
Most severe premature ejaculations are caused by biological
factors - including urinary tract infections, so if this is your
complaint, see a doctor.
Other causes include psychological factors, especially anxiety,
stress, or guilt. Many premature ejaculation problems go away by
themselves, as these underlying psychological factors disappear.
Lastly, drugs such as over the counter cold pills and cigarette
smoking have been implicated as causing or contributing to premature
ejaculation. If you smoke, consider this as yet another reason to
quit (as if the other health dangers are not enough ...)
Are there drugs for premature ejaculation?
Not officially, although serotonin uptake blockers or serotonin
reuptake inhibitors used to treat depression have been used "off-label"
to treat men with premature ejaculation. It is important to note
that these drugs have not been indicated for this treatment, and
therefore their use must only be prescribed by a knowledgeable physician.
So, what can I do to last longer?
