Every healthy relationship depends on how strong the bond between partners is. One of the ways to tell if the relationship is headed the right way is if there is healthy intimacy between the two. While it is easy for any couples to jump into bed or elsewhere and make love, some may find hurdles like premature ejaculation among others.
Premature ejaculation occurs when a man orgasms during sex sooner than he or his partner would like. Criteria for diagnosing this condition include that the man nearly always ejaculates within one minute of penetration or is almost never able to delay ejaculation. For most men the average time until ejaculation is about five minutes.
Delayed ejaculation DE is a common medical condition in which a man has difficulty reaching an orgasm. It should not be confused with erectile dysfunction the inability to achieve an erection or decreased libido low sex drivealthough both can sometimes contribute to DE. DE is not only frustrating to men but can complicate the sex lives of their partners as well. Whereas as a male orgasm can normally be achieved within several minutes, DE may prolong sex for 30 minutes or longer.
I get asked all the time, " Why is it easier for men to orgasm than women? Sometimes women ask how to make their man last longer because they aren't getting their chance, sometimes it's men asking what they can do to last longer. The bottom line is that it takes men an average of five to six minutes to reach orgasm, while it takes women an average of 15 to 20 minutes.
