Among a number of problems related with the sexual health of many men and of course his partner, we find Premature Ejaculation as 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 brake and separation of the couple.
In short, premature ejaculation (PE) means "coming too quickly" and as mentioned above it's one of the most common of all sexual problems. Recently, there was a survey made of several thousand British males, and the results indicated that approximately 10 per cent of them stated that "often" or "sometimes" they had this trouble.
Additionally it has been found that PE is more common to occur in younger men than in the 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. According to a 2004 survey made in Europe, it showed that a considerable number of middle-aged men still have this problem and are looking for an effective treatment for premature ejaculation.
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 an early "conditioning" of the condition. 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.
