What Is Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is a condition where a man climaxes sooner than he wants, expects and before the female partner expects, wants or before she climaxes. In medical jargon, there is no specific time mentioned which can define what would classify a certain climax as premature ejaculation and what would be normal.

What Is Premature Ejaculation

In a boarder and very general sense, when males climax and ejaculate in a matter of a few seconds to only a couple of minutes of having sex, it is referred to as premature ejaculation. Medical science describes premature ejaculation as a form of sexual dysfunction and it also considers it to be relevant when there is an act of sexual intercourse. However, in the real world, premature ejaculation is also associated with foreplay and masturbation. In a nutshell, if a man climaxes and ejaculates the sperm and semen in a very short period of time, it is premature ejaculation.

Experts consider premature ejaculation to be a type of sexual dysfunction. In reality, it is considered so only when the problem doesn’t get resolved on its own. Young men would inevitably experience premature ejaculation. There are many factors that influence and cause premature ejaculation. With more experiences of sexual intercourse and growing confidence, absence of psychological triggers and other demands of sexual performance, the premature ejaculation problem becomes nonexistent. If a man in his thirties report premature ejaculation after having sufficient experiences of sexual intercourse, it may be regarded as sexual dysfunction but the same wouldn’t be true in case of a teenager, an adolescent or young adult who is yet to have enough sexual encounters. 

There aren’t any surefire symptoms of premature ejaculation. A man may suddenly experience orgasm within minutes of foreplay or sexual intercourse and before he or his partner wants it, he would ejaculate. Pupil dilation, fatigue or orgasmic feelings are very common and cannot be considered to be a sign of premature ejaculation. These may also happen in a rare case of ejaculating quicker or sooner than expected.

However, there is one sign that would indicate premature ejaculation to be a regular or a consistent problem for a man. If ejaculation is not at all in the voluntary control of the man then premature ejaculation may be because of sexual dysfunction. Both men and women can control their orgasms to a certain extent. Without the will, involvement and voluntary participation, orgasm or ejaculation can be averted to a large extent. 

There are many causes of premature ejaculation including psychological factors, lifestyle, medical conditions, medications or physical history and they have to be taken into consideration if the situation is chronic.
