Symptoms of premature ejaculation
The main symptom is the inability to ejaculate when desired; instead you find that you ejaculate far too quickly and before either you or your partner are ready which spoils your enjoyment.
This usually occurs during sexual intercourse but it can also happen in other types of sexual activities which includes masturbation.
This can occur at different stages during sexual intercourse, such as before, during and after vaginal penetration. Premature ejaculation often happens 90 seconds after penetration.
This leaves both of you dissatisfied and in your partner’s case, frustrated at this end result.
Less common in couples who know each other
Unsurprisingly, premature ejaculation is less likely to occur in couples who are familiar with each other or a married couple as compared to a one-off relationship, e.g. ‘one night stand’.
If you and your partner are relaxed and open with each other, have mutually consented to sexual intercourse and understand each other’s needs then there should not be a problem. But it can and does happen as several couples will testify to.
Basically, premature ejaculation is less of a problem for couples who know each other than those who don’t.
