What exactly is premature ejaculation (PE) in men?
The release of a mixture of fluids and sperm from the male body at the peak of sexual intercourse is known as ejaculation. Many men develop premature ejaculation during their lifetimes. If a man consistently reaches orgasm more rapidly than he (or his partner) wishes, this is known as premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation is only something to be worried about if it leads to frustration, anxiety or any other form of discomfort or inter-relational tension.
Premature ejaculation is commonly reported in men, with around 1 in 3 experiencing it over their lifetime. If you cum predictably within 60 seconds of commencing coitus, or you cannot delay your climax and experience emotions of stress or frustration as a result, a doctor may diagnose PE. What precisely are the reasons one might develop this ailment?
What are the exact causes underpinning premature ejaculation?
The precise causal mechanisms behind premature ejaculation are not entirely mapped. Once deemed a wholly psychological condition, researchers have since become aware of a plethora of factors involved in this illness, both mental and physical.
Some psychological issues capable of maximizing the probability of developing this condition are:
- Traumatic sexual experiences
- Sexual repression
- Feelings of worthlessness
- Sexual or paraphilic guilt
Some physiological causes could also be at the root of PE, including:
- Hormonal disruption
- Prostate disease
- Genetic susceptibility
- Abnormal serotonin levels
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter involved in the male orgasm, among other processes. Increased blood concentrations of serotonin prolong the amount of time it takes to ejaculate, and lower concentrations reduce this time, producing an orgasm quicker than would be desired.
What are some treatments to delay premature ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation is a symptom of an underlying issue rather than a disease unto itself. Therefore, treating the root causes of premature ejaculation is the optimal course of action.
If your premature ejaculation is caused by any of the psychological issues outlined earlier in the article, the preferable course of action would be to speak to a licensed therapist or counsellor, preferably one who specialises in male sexual disorders.

There are also some physical measures you can take in the comfort of your own home that may ameliorate premature ejaculation. You could try masturbating an hour or two before sex, or avoiding intercourse and directing sexual energies to other forms of intimate activity to relieve performance-related stress.
Another simple fix to delay orgasm by reducing the feeling in the sensitive nerve-endings that densely populate the glans is to use condoms. They provide a barrier that can prolong the duration of coitus by decreasing friction on the skin. Some manufacturers include a topical anaesthetic that numbs the nerves of the penis slightly.
What medications are available for premature ejaculation?
If the underlying issue behind a case of ED is to do with serotonin levels, you might be prescribed an antidepressant that works on the serotonergic system. Dapoxetine, in particular, seems to be the most efficacious of these in extending the length of time a man can partake in coitus before he reaches sexual culmination. Always consult your physician before commencing any medical therapy.
Kegel: A possible premature ejaculation cure?
A weakness in the ejaculatory muscles, also known as the pelvic floor, is one of the more common reasons that men experience poor ejaculatory control. Performing specific strength exercises called Kegels targets the correct muscles, strengthening them to the effect of radically improved ejaculatory control, and can even cure the condition entirely.
How to delay ejaculation – the best ways
Locate the Pelvic Floor
Try to cut off the flow while in the middle of urinating, or tense the muscles that prevent the passage of flatulence. These actions involve the pelvic floor muscles required for the correct performance of a kegel. Kegel can be done in any position, but most beginners find lying down a good initial pose.
Tense and hold
Once you have a located the pelvic floor, tighten and hold for three seconds, then release for three. Ten repetitions should be enough for the beginner. A good visualization is to try to pull your testicles up inside your body.
Isolate the right muscles
The best way to do this exercise is to isolate the necessary muscles. You should do your best to avoid tensing the surrounding tissues like the abs, glutes (buttocks) and legs. Breathe as naturally as possible while maintaining tension.
