What is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature Ejaculation is a sexual dysfunction in which a man ejaculates or releases semen earlier than as desired by him. There is no set standard as such for how early too early is, but most doctors consider ejaculating within a minute of one’s arousal as Premature Ejaculation.

Research suggests that numerous people consider quick or early ejaculation sexy on a man’s part, but this condition could also lead to ejaculation immediately after penetration. Let’s face it, that doesn’t leave much scope for enjoyment or fulfilment for either partner. Hence, it is a condition that needs due attention and treatment.
