Couple Touching SkinPremature ejaculation, an unfortunate occurrence in which a man ejaculates earlier than either he or his partner would like him to, is a condition that affects a great many men worldwide. While there have been a number of advances in the understanding of this particular type of sexual dysfunction, many researchers still debate the exact underlying causes. A recent study published in the British Journal of Urology explores the possible connection between premature ejaculation and penis sensitivity.

The Sensitive Penis

The human penis is an intricate structure composed of tissues, veins and skin. The penile skin contains many sensitive nerve endings that respond to touch and cause sexual arousal resulting in an erection. While this reaction is to be expected in a normally functioning penis, some have questioned whether it's possible that some men are too sensitive to stimulation, or hypersensitive, which results in early ejaculation.

The British Journal of Urology recently published the results of a study investigating the correlation between penile hypersensitivity and premature ejaculation (PE).

Penis Sensitivity Study

The basis for the belief that penile hypersensitivity may be a cause of PE stems from earlier clinical trials. These studies demonstrated the effectiveness of certain topical desensitizing agents (PSD502) in prolonging the ejaculatory response. While the use of such local anesthetics has been shown to help delay ejaculation, the results of this new study casts some doubt on the hypothesis that penis sensitivity is the leading contributor of PE.

Results

"The published data does not support unequivocally penile hypersensitivity as the cause of PE. Interpretation of the data is hampered by the variability of the populations described as having PE across studies. Data from the PSD502 clinical trials clearly shows that PSD502 increases ejaculatory latency, and improves control and sexual satisfaction when applied topically to men with PE 5 min before intercourse, enabling subjects to delay ejaculation up to six times longer than those who used a placebo."

Conclusion

"The clinical profile of PSD502 lends credibility to the penile hypersensitivity hypothesis for PE. The predominant action of local anaesthetics is to reduce neuronal firing in sensory afferents; the clinical profile of PSD502, which shows improvement of ejaculatory function in the absence of a generalized reduction in penile sensitivity, can most readily be explained based on an underlying hypersensitivity in patients with PE."

Hypersensitivity - ONE Cause of PE

What this study basically finds is that penile hypersensitivity may be a contributing factor to premature ejaculation but it is probably not the only one. Medical experts now generally agree that there are many types of PE and it is highly unlikely that any one cause is entirely responsible for the condition.

This should not detract from the effectiveness of certain treatments, such as the one mentioned in the study, that have shown promise in the treatment of PE. It merely means that there is no one cause, and therefore no single solution for all sufferers of premature ejaculation.

Effective PE Treatments

Other types of treatment which include penis exercises and penile traction devices have also been shown to decrease the occurrence of PE.

Traction Device: SizeGenetics

In addition to these long-term solutions, there are also non-prescription performance enhancers which can temporarily remedy and reduce instances of sexual dysfunction.

While penile hypersensitivity may not be the smoking gun that researchers had hoped to find, it may prove to be the underlying cause for many sufferers of premature ejaculation. Fortunately the available treatment options for those experiencing PE due to an extra-sensitive penis are relatively easy and inexpensive. Using the methods listed above, men can increase sexual stamina, gain more control over their erections, and ultimately prevent premature ejaculation from occurring.
