Premature ejaculation or PE is when a man ejaculates before he wanted to or too so. It is one of the most common sexual problems faced by men worldwide. In a recent survey, it was discovered but over 10% of men in the UK have suffered from this problem. There isn't an exact definition to what premature ejaculation actually is because the amount of time that is 'satisfactory' for one couple would be different to others. The 'average man' would normally last around 7.3 minutes but again this is an average and varies with every man. Fortunately there are treatments available to men wanting to last longer during sexual intercourse.
