AB  - INTRODUCTION: This study explores the relationship between erectile function and 
      ejaculatory function, to inform the clinical psychosexological and sexual
      medicine practice treatment protocols. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 1,004
      Czech males aged between 15 and 84 years (m = 42.8 yrs; sd = 17.6 years)
      completed a sexual behavior questionnaire. A cross-sectional design was adopted. 
      Erectile function was measured with the International Index of Erectile Function 
      (IIEF-5) and ejaculatory function measured using self-report intravaginal
      ejaculation latency time and the Index of Premature Ejaculation (IPE). Linear
      regression analyses were used to explore the relationships between premature
      ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. RESULTS: The sample mean self-reported
      intravaginal ejaculatory latency time was 9.34 minutes. The overall mean on the
      IPE was 19.44 (sd = 2.368). The Control domain mean was 81.13 (sd = 17.22);
      Sexual Satisfaction domain mean 78.60 (sd = 20.59); and the Distress domain mean 
      was 86.86 (sd = 18.32). The mean score on the IIEF-5 was 19.28 (sd = 2.53). The
      results indicate a relationship between premature ejaculation and erectile
      dysfunction. With age significantly associated with all measures. CONCLUSIONS:
      Higher levels of erectile function are associated with a better control and
      sexual satisfaction, and less distress about ejaculation. This association
      supports the consideration of this relationship in the development of new
      clinical practice guidelines for erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.
