Dick Butkus brought erectile dysfunction screaming out of the closet when he became a spokesman for Viagra. PE, however, premature ejaculation remained behind, in the dark, undiscussed and embarrassingly inconvenient.
An estimated one-third of all men experience premature ejaculation. The clinical definition of the problem is for orgasm to be consistently reached within two minutes of penile insertion.
The drawbacks of PE being obvious, what are the solutions? Johnson and Johnson is working on approval of dapoxetine hydrochloride, an efficient anti-PE drug. Many physicians prescribing anti-depressants such as Prozac find it has the side benefit of alleviating PE, though anti-depressants can also cause impotence. Tantra sex techniques are effective; they center on delaying orgasm. Injecting the penis with hyaluronic acid gel not only doubles ejaculation time, it also makes the glans larger.
Premature ejaculation can result from any number of physical and psychological factors. If you are troubled by PE, your best bet is to talk with your healthcare provider regarding the solutions most appropriate to your case.
