Myths and Facts About Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation (PE) is often talked about, laughed about, and thought about, especially by those who suffer from it. But while premature ejaculation may be the topic of many jokes, there are a lot of rumors and myths about it that float around.

If you suffer from premature ejaculation, there is no reason to dwell on the inaccuracies of circulating myths. It is best to tackle the myths head-on so you can get closer to possible solutions. Here are a few of the most common myths and facts about premature ejaculation:

MYTH: You Are Alone

FACT: A lot of men who suffer from premature ejaculation believe they are part of a select few who also suffer from the problem. The fact is that almost 1 out of every 3 men at all age ranges are affected by premature ejaculation. And the percentage may be as high as 70% for men under 40, but is not documented because the men do not tell their doctor and keep it to themselves.

MYTH: Premature Ejaculation is a Psychological Problem

FACT: While in many cases there are psychological issues that are the root cause of premature ejaculation, in some cases, the sufferer may simply have an oversensitive penis, a hormonal imbalance, or in even fewer cases, a deformation in the internal structure of the male sex organs that prevent the restriction of ejaculation fluid.

MYTH: There is No Cure

FACT: While it is true that there is no singular "cure" for premature ejaculation, there are a variety of remedies and solutions that can help you control it. Men who suffer from premature ejaculation all have a different root cause. Some may have primary premature ejaculation which started during puberty, while others have secondary premature ejaculation and started having ejaculatory issues later on after puberty. Some may have root psychological issues that need to be worked out in therapy. Others may have an oversensitive penis that needs to be controlled through technique or desensitizing practices.

MYTH: Ejaculation Can't Be Controlled

FACT: Many people, both men and women, believe that the ejaculatory process in the male is uncontrollable. But that simply is not true. You learned early in life to control your bladder, right? We don't pee in public, but learn to control the urge until we can reach a proper facility. The same goes for the male ejaculation process. Through practice and muscle exercise, a man can learn to control the timing of their ejaculation and prolong sex.

MYTH: Premature Ejaculation Won't Affect Your Social Life

FACT: The fact is that the inability to function in the bedroom can transfer into your everyday life. Your self-confidence could dwindle and self-image can suffer. It's best to tackle the problem of premature ejaculation and find a good remedy or solution so you can be more outgoing and confident in your everyday life.

MYTH: Premature Ejaculation Goes Away With Age

FACT: The fact is that premature ejaculation is a condition that affects almost one-third of ALL men over the age of puberty. Whether you are 21 or 71, you are just as likely to suffer from this condition.
