This definition of the premature ejaculation where it is not mentioned exactly how long is long enough, is the best one according to many experts.
This is definitely a problem for both sexual partners and it should be treated as such.
If the male in a couple reaches climax in for example 10 minutes and his partner regularly climaxes in 5 minutes, this is not considered a premature ejaculation problem. However, if a man delays his ejaculation for as long as 25 minutes but his partner needs 40 minutes of stimulation before reaching an orgasm, they have a problem.
It is clear that in such cases both partners aren’t satisfied and can become unhappy and frustrated.
However, some scientists define premature ejaculation as a medical problem when man ejaculates within two minutes of penetration.
Men shouldn’t be embarrassed if they have this kind of problem since it is the most common sexual dysfunction in men.
No one really knows how many men are suffering from this unpleasant condition because most men don’t like to talk about it particularly not to their physicians. According to some unofficial sources one in five men experiences difficulty with uncontrolled or early ejaculation at some point in life and more then thirty percent of men suffer from premature ejaculation constantly.
No one really knows what is causing this problem but since it is evidenced among men from the beginning of sexual education and researches, many experts have tried to tell exactly what the predominant cause is! Therefore, there are many theories and many possible explanations!
Premature ejaculation types
There are two types of premature ejaculation - primary and secondary. Primary premature ejaculation means that the individual recognized the problem as early as he entered sexual maturity. Secondary premature ejaculation is a condition which began later in life when an individual already had normal sex life and acceptable level of ejaculatory control.
