Abstract

PURPOSE OF REVIEW:

Accumulating evidence suggests that premature ejaculation is the most common sexual symptom. This review focuses on the epidemiology of premature ejaculation from geographical and medical perspectives.

RECENT FINDINGS:

In the past year many articles have been published using the data from the Global Study of Sexual Attitudes and Behaviors, a large survey that investigated various aspects of sex and relationships among 27 500 men and women aged 40-80 years. Despite some methodological bias, discussed herein, a prevalence of more than 21% seems a realistic figure for premature ejaculation.

SUMMARY:

Premature ejaculation is the most prevalent sexual dysfunction in every country.
