A quick summary from P.E 1.0:
- It is the commonest male sexual problem, affects men of all ages but more in young men. The true incidence is very low.
- Two types
- Lifelong ( never had control of his ejaculation)
- Acquired (could control for a period then lost control)
- Causes include:
- Anxiety, depression, guilt, emotional/mental stress, overexcitement, sexual immaturity, a new relationship.
- Excessive alcohol intake, tobacco, marijuana, cocaine, etc.
- Diabetes, multiple sclerosis, high blood pressure, thyroid problems, prostate disease.
Now, on today’s P.E. 2.0:
Some guys don’t ejaculate till about 10 minutes and complain that they have P.E. Some guys ejaculate immediately after penetration and complain that they have P.E.
So who really has P.E?
- Research has shown that the time taken for normal men to ejaculate is an average of 7.3 minutes and 1.8 minutes for men with P.E3 . So if you can delay ejaculation for 10minutes you don't have P.E., but if you want to delay it for 120 minutes like your spartan friends (Jokers), you just need to work on your techniques.
- P.E sometimes doesn’t only affect the guy by causing depression, embarrassment, lack of confidence, low self-esteem, etc. it could also have a negative impact on a relationship.
- P.E could be inherited. Though the genetic association is yet to be proven.1
- The management of P.E is based on the underlying cause.
- If you feel anxious, guilty or over excited, try to relax before sex. If this doesn’t work over time, talk to your partner or a therapist.
- Thinking of something way different from sex /tuning your mind off while having sex could help delay ejaculation.
- Using a condom could help in men that always engage in unprotected sex.
- Masturbating few minutes before actual sex, has been shown to help some men delay ejaculation by reducing sensitivity of the penis and thereby increasing the time it takes to ejaculate.
- For some men, stopping or cutting down on the use of alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs may improve their ability to control ejaculation.2
- In many cases P.E. resolves on its own over time without the need for medical treatment.2
Stay tuned for techniques such as the “deep breathing”, “start and stop”, “kegel’s exercise”, “squeeze method”, drugs and other techniques that can be used to treat P.E.
