Premature Ejaculation: What is it?

Excerpts from an article on Premature Ejaculation by Dr. Oyebade Jerry, in Modern Ghana:

PREMATURE EJACULATION – Exactly what is it?

Premature ejaculation is simply when a man ejaculates before he wants to, experiencing an orgasm with minimal stimulation. He doesn’t have control over when he releases. Having this issue once in a long while is not a problem, but if it becomes consistent? BIG problem.


#1: It Causes Low Self-esteem and Other Psychological Problems

Premature ejaculation affects one’s psyche and emotions. People with premature ejaculation suffer low self-esteem, lack of confidence, depression, and feelings of worthlessness. They also experience embarrassment, shame, frustrations, and general dissatisfaction.

#2: It Destroys Relationships and Causes Conflicts

Premature ejaculation can cause one to withdraw emotionally from one’s partner, avoid intimacy, and avoid sex altogether. This leads to cheating, extramarital sex, separation, breakups and divorce. Men who are not in relationships feel scared, ashamed, and too insecure to start one or approach a partner due to insecurity

#3: It is Difficult to Treat and Worsens with Time

We in the sex therapy world have a term called performance anxiety. This makes men with premature ejaculation have a worsening sexual experience. Due to past failure, the man fears (and unconsciously expects) not to be able to last long in bed; this anxiety leads to poor performance. And the poor performance further increases the performance anxiety which further worsens the sexual performance. And it doesn’t go away on its own.


From the doctors at American Male Medical:

As doctor Jerry says, “Sexual intimacy is one of the most beautiful gifts we can experience.”
