Although the adult film industry would have people believe that a real man can spend hours having intimacy without coming, the truth is that such men are definitely exceptions rather than the rule. (And, of course, when a man is actually engaged in intimacy, there isn’t always the option of stopping for a little while to let the urge to release lessen.) Still, men take it as a source of pride when they can "last long" while in bed - and consequently often feel ashamed when they "shoot quickly," that is experience early on emission. Even men who practice exceptional male organ care may have an issue with early on emission - and so it is a subject of concern to many. |
But just how common is early on emission? There have been quite a few studies on the subject. Not surprisingly, the answers vary.
For example, a 2006 study referenced that worldwide 30% of men experienced early on emission. However, a study from a year earlier quoted a figure of 21%. A 2015 study looking at only Italian men found prevalence of 18.5%.
Clearly, there is some disagreement about how many men experience early on emission. But this problem is compounded by the fact that opinions vary on how to define early on emission. Most men just assume it to mean coming too early, but what is too early to one man (or woman) may be different than what is too early to another man (or woman).
In recent years, there have been attempts to come up with a "universal" definition of early on emission. While this effort is ongoing, more doctors and researchers seem to be basically defining early on emission as the tendency to typically come within one minute of penetration.
There are other factors which can cause problems with studies, however. One of the biggest is that most studies are based on self-reported information. In other words, it is unlikely that a scientist can set up a study in which a man is actually observed engaging in coupling so that he can independently measure the time that passes from first penetrating to emission. Instead, studies rely on men to report whether they experience early on emission or not. Some may not offer a time-based definition, and so a man who considers coming after five minutes may classify himself as early on. And even if time-based definitions are provided, a man may not accurately assess his performance and may over- or under-estimate how long he typically "holds out" before releasing.
There’s also the issue of frequency. A man should pretty clearly classify himself as early on if he comes in one minute or less almost all the time. But what if it’s three-quarters of the time? Or half the time?
It’s also not at all unusual for a young and/or inexperienced male to come very quickly when having relations. It’s the rare man who, his first time in the game doesn’t come very soon after penetration. With experience often comes skill and the ability to delay emission. But some men, especially some with low self-confidence, may define themselves as early on based on their early experiences, even though they have since learned how to delay emission to a respectable degree.
The scientific world is still struggling with coming up with a definition that allows it to more accurately measure this issue; at the moment, it’s probably best to assume that somewhere around 20-25% of men experience some form of early on emission issues. But that percentage could change as more information is uncovered.
Male organ health does not correlate with early on emission, but men who practice good personal care tend to feel better about presenting their manhood to a partner. Guys should regularly use a top notch male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) that contains the amino acid L-arginine. This ingredient helps create situations where blood vessels are more accessible to increased blood flow. The crème should also include vitamin A, the anti-bacterial properties of which help fight unwanted and demeaning odor.
