Some statistics: 30%! This is the worldwide proportion of men suffering from premature ejaculation.
Varying from one country to another, global statistics show that about one in three men suffer from premature ejaculation. Although widespread, this topic is taboo and often causes discomfort.
What is premature ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation is defined as a sexual dysfunction characterized by the fact that the man ejaculates too early or without proper control. On this basis, the definition of premature ejaculation varies for everyone.
More precisely, to define premature ejaculation, we must first define the term IELT: Intravaginal Ejaculation Latency Time. This is the time needed for a man to ejaculate during penetration.
In medicine, a man suffering from premature ejaculation is a man whose IELT is less than 120 seconds. Approximately 2-5 % of men fit this definition (3).
Other men considered suffering from premature ejaculation are those who lack control over their ejaculation, that is to say those who ejaculate sooner than they wish or before their partner reaching the orgasm. Approximately 25% of men fit this definition.
Having premature ejaculation causes many problems that can have serious consequences.
Besides an obvious embarrassment and permanent feeling of shame, premature ejaculation often results in erectile difficulties, producing lack of sexual desire and loss of self-confidence, leading to sexual dissatisfaction.
Sexual dissatisfaction may lead to adultery and / or relationship dissatisfaction, often leading to breakups and divorces, sometimes causing depression and even suicide.
Existing treatments are divided into three main categories:
- Drug treatment: often prescribed by a doctor or a sex therapist, it consists of antidepressants, mostly belonging to the class of SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors).
Unfortunately, this type of treatment, often expensive, can have many side effects such as nausea, sweating, loss of orgasm, etc...
- Psychotherapy and behavioral techniques: these treatments essentially consist of learning sexuality again and are mainly aiming at the sexual excitement control and the ejaculatory reflex rehabilitation.
Often expensive, this type of treatment requires a lot of work on oneself, patience, discipline and a good understanding and communication within the couple. And the results are highly variable.
- No side effectsAnesthetics sprays, creams and gels: anesthetic literally meaning "removal of sensations", gels, creams and sprays used to fight against premature ejaculation can cause erection difficulties and risks of insensitivity to the partner. In addition, requiring a local application before each sexual relations, this treatment removes any notion of spontaneity.
Unfortunately, to date, no single solution can put an end to the problem of premature ejaculation. In addition, all proposed treatments are accompanied by high costs, unpleasant side effects or lack of spontaneity in the sexual relations. That is why we invented Lovastic!
Subject of a patent, Lovastic innovates by its simplicity and discretion. It works naturally and allows better control of the excitation, thus delaying ejaculation.
