Premature ejaculation occurs when a man experiences orgasm and ejaculates too quickly after sexual penetration. While the average time taken for men to ejaculate during sexual intercourse is around five and a half minutes, men who experience premature ejaculation may ejaculate in two minutes or less.
The condition can affect men of all age groups with a higher prevalence amongst younger men. Although definitive figures are hard to determine, it is thought that up to 30% of men will suffer from the condition at some point during their sexual lives.
Premature ejaculation is believed to have a wide range of causes including: stress and anxiety, psychological factors, early conditioning, neurological triggers, and genetic predisposition.
Whatever the reasons for the condition, premature ejaculation can be extremely stressful for men and their partners – often resulting in an unfulfilled sex life.
