What happens if your man cum’s too quickly? Premature ejaculation (PE) is the most common sexual problem affecting a great number of men around the world, causing many relationships to enter a stressful dynamic that can lead to an abrupt break and separation of the couple. But what is premature ejaculation exactly and what can you do about it?

According to the Mayo Clinic, premature ejaculation is defined as trouble getting or maintaining your erection, and report that 1 in 3 men report this problem in their lifetime. Though this is a very common condition, it can be devastating for men and their relationships.

It has been found that PE is more common to occur in younger men than in older males. This is not really surprising because it has been proved that there exists the tendency for it to improve with age, i.e., men generally get better control as they grow older and acquire more sexual experience.

However, not every male accomplishes this. No one can deny that premature ejaculation matters in the life of the man suffering from this condition, it matters mainly because it makes people unhappy and frustrated. And in cases of severe PE, it can even threaten or even ruin a marriage because it spoils the sex lives of both partners. Sometimes, the condition is so advanced and frustrating that the man cannot even manage to have intercourse with the partner because he invariably ejaculates before he can get into the vagina. This can be devastating for a man’s self-confidence. And, of course, it can be hugely frustrating and annoying for his partner, too.

For many years, many sex experts have been inclined to say that premature ejaculation is caused by early conditioning. In other words, the male’s early, rushed, and maybe furtive sexual experiences had to be so quick in order to avoid detection that the idea permeated deep into his brain and all this hectic rush has conditioned him to climax as quickly as possible.

However, in a number of surveys, it has been found that many men with premature ejaculation problems say that they did not have rushed, hasty early sexual experiences, though others say they did. These maintain that they were fast ejaculators right from the start of their sex lives.

As you can imagine, men who suffer from premature ejaculation are interested in treatment to improve their condition. According to the Mayo Clinic, treatment options include behavioral techniques, topical anesthetics, medications, and counseling. If you are struggling with premature ejaculation, be sure to talk with your doctor about your options.
