Premature Ejaculation-When Comin’ Instead Eof Goin’!

February 2, 2016

 

Nothing is more embarrassing to a man than a problem of rapid ejaculation.  Men are interested in satisfying their partners and when they ejaculate\cum too soon, it is a source of embarrassment and anxiety for every man and a source of frustration and lack of fulfillment for every partner.

Premature ejaculation (PE) is a problem that plagues 36,000,000 men and is defined as ejaculation within 5 minutes of penetration. It is important to point out that premature ejaculation depends on the satisfaction of the partners.  It is a sexual event for a male actually includes erection orgasm, and ejaculation.

The exact etiology of PE isn’t clear, but it is felt to be a lack of control of the receptors to the nerves from the spinal nerve to the prostate gland and the seminal vesicles, the two organs behind the prostate gland that store the sperm prior to ejaculation.

A list of treatments that have been shown NOT to be beneficial incldues:

1. Long-term psychoanalysis.

2. Getting drunk.

3. Use of one or more condoms.

4. Concentrating on something other than sex while having intercourse. (i.e. Baseball line-ups, or state capitals)

5. Biting one’s cheek.

6. Frequent masturbation.

7. Testosterone injections.

8. Tranquillizers.

9. PD5 inhibitors.

Current treatment options available include selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI’s), utilizing the side effect of delayed ejaculation via their impact on the receptors in the brain. In numerous studies, these medications taken on a regular basis have been shown to prolong ejaculation. Drugs in this category include Zoloft, Anafranil and Prozac.

Topical creams have been tried in the past and recently, a company, Promescent, (for more information go to Promescent.com) has come out with a spray that is applied to the penile glans to lessen sensitivity. It is available online without a prescription and the feedback from the men who have tried it has been very positive.

My current recommendation is for men to start with Promescent if that is not successful, then consider the SSRI’s.

Bottom Line:  Premature ejaculation is a very common problem affecting millions of American men.  It certainly impacts the relationship between a man and his partner.  Help is available.  Speak to your doctor.

TSA Pat Down…With a “Happy Ending”!

December 1, 2010

A 47 year old gay man was arrested at San Francisco International Airport after ejaculating while being patted down by a male TSA agent.  Percy Cummings, an interior designer from San Francisco, is being held without bail after the alleged incident, charged with sexually assaulting a Federal agent.

According to Cummings’ partner, Sergio Armani, Cummings has “multiple piercings on his manhood” which were detected during a full body scan.  As a result, Cummings was pulled aside for a pat-down.  Armani stated that the unidentified TSA agent spent “an inordinate amount of time groping” Cummings, who had apparently become sexually aroused.  Cummings, who has a history of sexual dysfunction, ejaculated while the TSA agent’s hand was feeling the piercings.  The TSA agent, according to several witnesses, promptly called for back up.  Cummings was thrown to the ground and handcuffed.

A TSA spokesperson declined to comment on this specifc case, but said that anyone ejaculating during a pat-down would be subject to arrest.

EjD, Ejaculatory Dysfunction-The New Sexual Dysfunction

April 11, 2010

Millions of men suffer from EjD or ejaculatory dysfunction.  The most common variety is premature ejaculation followed by retarded ejaculation or not being able to achieve an orgasm.  Another less common EjD is retrograde ejaculation or seminal fluid going back into the bladder instead of exiting the penis at the time of orgasm.  This article will discuss the three common EjD conditions and what can be done to resolve them.

It is estimated that one-third of American men suffer from premature ejaculation or ejaculation within seconds of vaginal penetration.  This is of great concern and embarrassment to those who experience this malady.

One folk remedy that is available to all men is self-stimulation or masturbation. Having repeated orgasms will bring on delayed ejaculation in nearly every man. The best premature ejaculation tip is to double the number of orgasms a man has per week. And if that doesn’t work, double it again.  Now isn’t that a great assignment?

Another method that requires cooperation with the partner or significant other is the “pull out technique.” This consists of having sex for a few minutes then pulling out and stopping for a few minutes to postpone orgasm.

Another method is to decrease the stimulation of the penis using desensitizing cream such as topical xylocaine.  Also, using one or more condoms can decrease the sensation and can prolong ejaculation.

When these non-pharmacologic techniques are ineffective there are medications that can help prolong the time from penetration to ejaculation. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs — are known to cause delayed ejaculation.  Using an SSRI four to six hours before intercourse, men prone to premature ejaculation can last longer.

Delayed ejaculation (or retarded ejaculation) affects a much smaller number of men.  With this problem, men cannot reach orgasm at all, at least not with a partner.  It is most common associated with aging where more stimulatin is required for a man to reach an orgasm with advancing years because the nerve endings in the penis become less sensitive.  Delayed ejaculation may be caused by medicines – like antidepressants– are common culprits.

Retrograde ejaculation is the least common of the ejaculation problems. Retrograde ejaculation can be caused by diabetes, nerve damage, and various medications such as alpha-blockers like Flomax, which are used to treat enlargement of the prostate gland. Retrograde ejaculation is harmless and won’t interfere with the feeling of orgasm. (It can also make for an easy post-sex clean-up.) But since it does affect fertility, some men may need treatment if their partners are trying to get pregnant.

Bottom Line

EjD is a common medical condition that can be overcome.  Be open and communicate with doctor and share your concern with your partner.  Don’t suffer in silence and let the tension mount up and compounding the problem.  Most men with some advice and perhaps some medication from their doctor can overcome this problem.  This translates to less worry and more sex.  Who could ask for anything more?
