Lack of communication a major cause of premature ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation is somewhat of a delicate topic and a subject that the majority of sufferers are often unwilling to discuss with health care professionals or even close friends and partners.

It is no more so taboo than in conservative Asia. This is despite the fact that a whole third of the male population there, actually suffer with the condition.

They have launched the Asia Pacific Premature Ejaculation Prevalence and Attitude Study (AP PEPA), in a fresh move to combat the problem. Already raising a great deal of awareness about a condition that is reported to affect 30% of men, the study looked at 5,000 males aged 18-65 from around 10 countries worldwide.

Despite the fact such a large proportion (30%) of these men suffered with premature ejaculation, very few were willing to address the problem. According to Dr Lee who headed the research, male pride can often take precedence over a need to take action and embarrassment will often prevent the sufferer from seeking comprehensive advice from a trained health practitioner.

Common misconceptions

He spoke at a press conference alongside the secretary general of the Malaysian Urological Association, Dr Zulkifli Zainuddin. The pair discussed the great number of misconceptions, and the dire lack of comprehension surrounding premature ejaculation.

Our study

In response, we conducted our own poll, consisting of 200 regular customers, all of whom say they suffer with the symptoms of PE. We asked them individually, whether they ever discussed the problem with their partner or an expert.

Out of the 200, 120 said they had never spoken about the condition with anybody else, but had simply gone ahead and sought medical treatment. Interestingly, of the 80 who discussed the problem, 45 claimed that they had then been able to cope better with the condition, without the added anxiety.

Anybody suffering with premature ejaculation is strongly advised to seek out professional advice, in order to begin the treatment process early.
