Ejaculation is the male sexual organ response of expelling semen from the body. The process is part of the male reproductive system. Boys begin experiencing this after entering puberty. The first time is a result of masturbation of the penis or through wet dreams, also known as nocturnal emissions. If the boy is unaware of the changes his body is going through this can be quite embarrassing. The early ejections contain almost no semen and can be clear in color. As the young man progresses through puberty it can take up to two years before the semen is fully developed. Adult men are able to reproduce for the entire life.
The condition of premature ejaculation is where the man will eject semen from the body prematurely after a short period of stimulation. This condition can cause psychological problems for the affected person. It can be difficult to classify whether a male has this condition based upon the individual’s sexual response. As a general guideline, if you are happy with your current amount of time before ejaculation and quality of sex life, then you should not worry about this problem.
However, if you feel that you are not performing how you think you should, you may have a problem with premature ejaculation. Most men that report this problem say that they eject sperm from the penis in just a few minutes. When they are with a partner they often reach orgasm long before their partner. Men can feel sexually inadequate and become depressed if the condition is not dealt with correctly. Most men can achieve orgasm in less than ten minutes. The average time for a male to reach orgasm is about seven minutes.
The only symptom of the condition is ejaculating sperm in just a few minutes. The causes can be related to events going on in your life. Stress and depression can both cause this condition. If you were brought up in a household where sex was not discussed and went through puberty without much guidance can also lead to this condition. The condition can be treated and overtime can eventually go away.
