Intimacy Issues Volume One: Chapter Two
How to Last Longer in Bed – The Male Orgasm and Premature Ejaculation
A biological imperative for the propagation of the species, human males have evolved to achieve orgasm with relative ease — prompting some men to want to learn how to last longer in bed. According to a recent report posted by Psychology Today, an average of 30% of males age 18 to 85 experience what is referred to as premature ejaculation. This means that they become so aroused during a sexual encounter that they climax quite quickly, sometimes even before penetration. This can present an awkward situation if their partner is still over at the starting line with a revving engine and no passenger — so to speak.
Intimacy issues such as this, although common, tend to be omitted from everyday conversation due to the long lasting effects of shame and guilt placed upon sex by the Victorian Age. If premature ejaculation is a scenario that you relate to, you can see it as an opportunity to learn about yourself and to share these nuances with your partner rather than as a reason to withdraw in denial. PubMed.com reports that 85.1% of men experience climax during sexual activity, meaning that out of the nearly nine out of ten guys that reach cimax, three do so in a matter of time that both partners agree is too soon.
