What is Premature Ejaculation
Premature ejaculation is a common distressing male sexual dysfunction where a man experiences ejaculation too soon; typically less than 2 minutes after sexual contact. Over 30% of men suffer from premature ejaculation at some point in their lives and are unable to control or delay their ejaculation. The condition is more common in men between the ages of 18-35 years old, where the average male latency time is 7 minutes.
What causes Premature Ejaculation?
The exact root of premature ejaculation remains unclear as there are many factors to consider: psychological, physiological and environmental (lifestyle). The condition could stem from an emotional imbalance, stress, anxiety, depression or a physical problem including high blood pressure, hypersensitivity, diabetes and even excessive drinking. However, boosting your serotonin levels seems to help as it affects appetite, sleep and sexual desire.
