There are many reasons for premature ejaculation (PE), and if you want to find a way to finally last longer again, then understanding the causes of your problem will help you to solve it.
It’s estimated that about 40% of all male adults suffer from premature ejaculation sometimes.
There is no exact medical description as to what exactly is “premature” – is it 10 seconds, 5 minutes, 10 minutes?
But the general understanding is that a man suffers from PE if he reaches his orgasm too early to be able to sexually satisfy his female sex partner.
The causes of PE can be both physical or psychological – but the good news is that there is no inherent, medical defect that makes you unable to last longer. So it is possible to overcome PE using the right methods. Pretty much the only exception where PE is associated with a serious medical defect is multiples sclerosis, but the vast majority of PE sufferers does not have MS.
The medical community distinguishes between two kinds of PE:
- Primary Premature Ejaculation is when you always had this problem, since you when you started having sex (this is sometimes also referred to as lifelong premature ejaculation or LPE – although it’s not really “lifelong” in the term that it will stay with you forever. It’s curable too.)
- Secondary Premature Ejaculation is when you previously did last longer, but at some point in your life started to develop this problem (this is sometimes also referred to as acquired premature ejaculation or APE.
Early Masturbation Habits
Early masturbation habits might have conditioned you to cum too soon. A lot of teenage boys are afraid that they might get “caught” by their parents or other people that live with them when they masturbate, so they did it quickly and secretly. You tried to rush yourself and hurry with it, and that established a physiological routine that persists until now.
Interestingly, many men who suffer from some kind of anxiety also suffer from premature ejaculation. Some psychologists also noted that many PE sufferers seem to think of sex as something that is morally wrong and feel guilty about it. If that is the case, it’s only natural to “get it done as quickly as possible”.
Hypersensitive Pelvic Musculature
Men with PE tend to be a lot more sensitive to vibratory stimulation of penile and pelvic tissue. That’s one of the reason why certain kind of premature ejaculation exercises actually can help you to overcome this problem. However, it’s important that you do these exercises exactly the right way – because done wrong, you might be training your muscles to cum even quicker.
Serotonin is a hormone that your body produces. PE men often have low serotonin levels.
Testosterone & DHT receptors
Some men developed excessive testosterone and DHT receptors. This leads to too much DHT and testosterone being stored – which basically puts the prostate in “hyper-mode” and will also cause a quick ejaculation.
Intuitive Ejaculation Reflexion
This again is caused by repeatedly over-ejaculating – basically you trained your prostrate to over-react. Again, using the right methods, you can easily and quickly “re-train” your prostrate to perform the way you want it to.
