In the context of my busy urologic practice, I am often asked if there is any way to make male orgasms last longer. This area is one where men are jealous of women. I call it Venus Envy. For reasons unknown, nature designed humans so that women can experience prolonged wavelike orgasms, while men can experience brief and thunderous orgasms, five to seven seconds in duration.
Premature ejaculation is where a man ejaculates comes too quickly during sexual intercourse. It is a common ejaculation problem. Some health professionals prefer to use the term "rapid ejaculation". A study involving couples found the average time for ejaculation was about five-and-a-half minutes after starting sex. This time could be longer in the case of men who have sex with men. International guidelines define premature ejaculation as regularly ejaculating within one minute of entering your partner. However it is up to you and your partner to decide if you are happy with the time it takes you to ejaculate.
Print Diagnosis In addition to asking about your sex life, your doctor will ask about your health history and might do a physical exam. If you have both premature ejaculation and trouble getting or maintaining an erection, your doctor might order blood tests to check your male hormone testosterone levels or other tests. In some cases, your doctor might suggest that you go to a urologist or a mental health professional who specializes in sexual dysfunction.
