Premature Ejaculation Explained
Every once in a while we need to talk about the elephant in the room, and this time the elephant’s name is Premature Ejaculation.
Mayo Clinic states that premature ejaculation haunts one in three men, regardless of age or geographical location. (Ok, that is pretty many anxious dudes thinking about football, baseball or stupid sexy Flanders, while they are trying to postpone the inevitable.)
The Big Picture
So, why is this happening anyway?
The answer lies in human evolution. Dr. Brian Steixner, M.D., Director of the Institute of Men’s Health at Jersey Urology Group in Atlantic City, says that premature ejaculation is actually a good thing if we take a look at the big picture.
“Only in human society is fast orgasm undesirable,” says Steixner. “If we all had fifteen inch penises and could last two hours like porn stars, we would never have kids and our species wouldn’t survive. Lasting 10 seconds means more chances of kids—more offspring. Our species endures.”
Steixner also explained that our ability to ejaculate quickly, is actually linked to “the darkest periods of human evolution, when we were under constant threat from predators, rival tribes, or everything else we’ve more or less conquered these days.”
It is just that our reproductive system didn’t get the memo saying that these times are long gone and that our bedrooms are now pretty much free from those wild animals looking to hurt us. Or are they?
