What Causes Premature Ejaculation?

If you’re reading this — whether you’re looking for solutions after an official diagnosis or just craving a more satisfying sexual experience with your partner — you’re dealing with concerns about premature ejaculation.

Here’s the good news: You’re not alone.

Millions of men are living with premature ejaculation, also known as PE. It's likely the most common sexual dysfunction in men, affecting approximately 30 percent of all males worldwide!

Men typically have two big questions around this condition: “What causes premature ejaculation?” and “How do you treat premature ejaculation?”

We’ll tackle the first one here, starting with the biology of ejaculation.

How Does Ejaculation Work?

Ejaculation is controlled by the nervous system — in this case the brain, spinal cord, and genital nerves. The amazing feeling you get during an orgasm happens in your brain (and reverberates throughout your body), but in reality, ejaculation is a reflex — it can happen even without the brain's involvement.

What Are The Most Common Causes of PE?

Experts believe premature ejaculation in males can be linked to neuro-biological issues — the once-prevailing assumption that it’s “all in your head” has all but vanished today.

Here are the most common causes of premature ejaculation cited by medical professionals and literature:

  • High penile sensitivity

  • Serotonin deficiency

  • Elevated oxytocin levels

  • Psychological factors, including depression and anxiety

  • Stress

  • New sex positions and/or partners

When it comes to something as personal as premature ejaculation, it might be tempting to do your research entirely online about this condition. And there are plenty of products available without a prescription that can help address premature ejaculation.

But because there may be medical conditions responsible for changes in your sexual function — conditions that may be treatable — we always recommend a conversation with your doctor if you’ve recently experienced premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, pain with ejaculation, or severe delay or total inability to experience ejaculation or orgasm.
