Sex, Marriage and Premature Ejaculation

From the covers of magazines (men’s and women’s alike) to TV and movies, there’s no doubt we live in a sex-obsessed culture.

And what’s not to be obsessed with? When it’s good, sex can really enhance your quality of life.

But magazines, TV, and movies depict an idealized version of sex and love that don’t always (or ever) mirror reality. As a company devoted to helping actual humans have more fulfilling sex, we wanted to find out how real couples — living in in this uncontrolled experiment we call everyday existence — are navigating their intimate lives together.

So we put together a survey on sex and marriage and sent it out to men and women living all over the United States. The questions on our survey covered several topics:

  • Overall marital happiness

  • Satisfaction with sex life

  • Frequency of intercourse

  • Duration of intercourse

  • History of sexual dysfunction

More than 100 men and women submitted responses: 68 men and 54 women, with an average age of 42. Here’s what we discovered from the results.

Marital and Sexual Satisfaction

We asked couples, “How important is it that your sexual needs are fulfilled in your marriage?”

For the majority (63%)  of respondents, sexual fulfillment was either extremely important or very important, with 26% finding it somewhat important. Only 11% said sexual fulfillment wasn’t important.

The good news: Overall, the couples we surveyed were satisfied with both their marriages and their sex lives.

In terms of marital bliss, 83 percent of couples said they were either very satisfied or satisfied with their marriage’s happiness. Where sex is concerned, 70 percent of couples said they were either very satisfied or satisfied.

On average, the couples have sex twice per week, with six respondents getting it on seven times per week, and 23 respondents either skipping the question or reporting that they don’t have sex regularly at all (zero times per week).

When we asked about the frequency of orgasm, things got interesting: While the men surveyed said they orgasmed an average of 78% of the time, the women surveyed the only orgasm 50% of the time on average.

Our results provide a real-world illustration of the orgasm gap, which can be blamed partly on the fact that it takes women longer to reach orgasm than it does men (an average of 17 minutes to a man’s 5.5-minute average).

Sexual Dysfunction and Marriage

Just over 43% of respondents said they have experienced no sexual dysfunction at all in their relationship at all. But for the other 57%, a variety of sexual issues have cropped up throughout their marriages:

  • Premature ejaculation: 22.13%

  • Low sex drive: 22.13%

  • Erectile dysfunction: 12.30%

  • Pain during intercourse: 9.02%

  • Vaginal dryness during intercourse: 9.02%

We asked the 69 respondents who experience sexual dysfunction in their relationships to tell us how that dysfunction affects their marriage.

While 43% didn’t believe their sex lives affect their overall marriage at all, the rest undoubtedly did. Of those who said they experience “emotional spillover,” as we called it, they cited the following:

  • Frustration: 33.33%

  • Sadness or pessimism: 17.39%

  • Bitterness: 10.14%

  • Shame or embarrassment: 4.35%

  • Self-condemnation: 2.90%

Premature Ejaculation and Relationships

Age stats of sexually active married couples

The men who reported suffering from premature ejaculation (subjective or otherwise) greatly ranged in age — it’s a myth about premature ejaculation that only young men are affected by it.

And more than 30% of those men reported feeling frustration, shame, embarrassment, sadness, or pessimism related to their sexual dysfunction.

These feelings are consistent with wider scientific findings: a 2008 literature review in the Journal of Sexual Medicine concluded that premature ejaculation “significantly negatively impacts men and their partners and may prevent single men forming new partner relationships.”

Premature ejaculation can certainly take a toll on a man’s self-esteem, as well as a couple’s well-being. But there’s hope!

First, you’re not alone: Premature ejaculation is the most common sexual dysfunction in the world.

And finally, there are products out there designed to help you last longer and have more satisfying sex. Promescent’s over-the-counter male delay spray is clinically proven to be effective: In a study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research, nearly 75% of participants found that using Promescent made their sexual experience better.
