most common of all male sexual dysfunctions, Premature
(also known as Ejaculatory
Control Dysfunction or
Rapid Ejaculation [RE]) is defined as:
or recurrent ejaculation with minimal sexual stimulation
before, on, or shortly after penetration and before the
person wishes it." (emphasis added)
American Psychiatric Association. (1994).
Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders, fourth
edition. Washington, DC: American Psychiatric Association.
seen above, the defining characteristic of this common dysfunction
is not ejaculation, but instead, ejaculation "...before
the person wishes it." Now
who wouldn't "wish" to have an ejaculation and the
highly pleasurable orgasm that accompanies it?
answer is an obvious one: ejaculation triggers the Male
Refractory Period (MRP): the
"down" time (literally and figuratively) almost
universally experienced by adult males following orgasm. Thus
it is MRP,
rather than orgasm and its accompanying ejaculation, that
is the true culprit.
MRP not an issue, men could cum as quickly as they want and
still be ready for more, just as women are able to do. Without
MRP, despite orgasm and ejaculation, neither erection or desire
would be lost and thus men would be able to continue on for
as long as they or their partners might like.
as all normal men must go through MRP following orgasm, this
refractory period forces men to either sacrifice pleasure
or sacrifice their erections. And many men either prefer to
enjoy pleasure at the cost of their continued erection, or
don't know how to stop pleasure in time. After all, it is
understandably contrary to Human nature to knowingly and deliberately
stop one's own sexual pleasure.
it comes as no surprise that this one dysfunction (Premature
Ejaculation) is reportedly suffered by as many as 75%
of all men:
Premature or rapid ejaculation (RE) has been identified
as the most common male sexual dysfunction and is
estimated to affect between one third and three quarters
of men (Chesney et al., 1981; Kinsey et al., 1948;
McCarthy, 1988; Nathan, 1986; Reading and Wiest, 1984; Spector
and Carey, 1990)."

"The relationships among ejaculatory control, ejaculatory
and attempts to prolong heterosexual intercourse"
(vol. 26, no. 1) Start Page: p27(21)
of ejaculatory control is probably the most common male
sexual problem. The main manifestation of this difficulty
is that the men consistently come more quickly than they
or their partners want in intercourse; hence the terms 'premature'
and 'rapid ejaculation'... It has been estimated that about
one-third of American men suffer from an inability
to control the timing of their ejaculations; that
is many millions of men."

millions of men" suffer from this dysfunction not primarily
due to the fact that they orgasm quickly but because in the
male, orgasm and ejaculation trigger MRP, and thus erection
is lost thereafter. Women can also orgasm quickly, yet this
is hardly seen as a dysfunction. This is because women
don't suffer from MRP; their sexual physiologies do not require
a "down" time after only a single orgasm.
Rutgers study is the first to show true evidence that for
some men it is possible to experience relatively rapid natural,
full orgasms with full ejaculations without triggering MRP,
and therefore without any "Premature Ejaculation"
dysfunction in evidence. Thus where MRP is not a factor,
neither can ejaculation be called "premature," and
therefore there is no dysfunction.
this study has shown, in very unique cases (such as that of
the research Subject) fully ejaculatory orgasms can occur
at intervals of only two minutes apart and yet still not fall
within the paradigm of defining characteristics as established
for "premature ejaculation." This is because where
no MRP exists, no loss of sexual functioning occurs. Thus
such orgasmic capacity actually enhances such men's capacity
for pleasure both for themselves and their partners.
shown by this Study, it is not the length of time to orgasm
that is the problem, but instead the loss of erection and
desire thereafter caused by MRP that is the dysfunction. Thus,
where MRP is not an issue, neither is "Premature Ejaculation."
yet despite this fact, not a single scientific investigation
has to-date ever been attempted to determine why it is that
natural male orgasm and ejaculation trigger the Male Refractory
Period in most men. Instead, sexologists continue to instruct
men only on treating the symptom through ejaculatory-control
and -delay techniques rather than working to find a "cure"
for MRP through investigation and research into the causes
is hoped this study might help motivate such an investigation.
