Summary Premature ejaculation (PE) and erectile dysfunction (ED) are different sexological issues. However, they have many little-known links. PE is the most common male sexual dysfunction, but ED is undoubtedly the most common reason that medical help is sought. As a consequence, PE is largely under-diagnosed and under-treated, while ED has received great scientific and clinical attention in recent years. There are plenty of reasons for this: (i) PE is classically considered as psychogenic in…

The specific underlying mechanisms supporting the association between erectile dysfunction (ED) and premature ejaculation (PE) are still not completely clarified. To summarize and discuss all

Clomiphene seems to be useful in the pharmacological treatment of PE compared to the placebo, and after intervention and comparison of the results between the two groups, IELT, sexual indexes, and QOL improved in the study group, but significant differences were observed only in the IelT andQOL findings.
Evaluation of premature ejaculation.
A greater understanding of how to diagnose PE correctly, and a more widespread use of a structured diagnostic approach, could lead to better treatment outcomes in the future.
The pathophysiology of acquired premature ejaculation
Acquired PE is commonly due to sexual performance anxiety, psychological or relationship problems, erectile dysfunction (ED), and occasionally prostatitis and hyperthyroidism, consistent with the predominant organic etiology of acquired PE.
Hormonal correlations of premature ejaculation
Public interest on sexual dysfunctions has likewise increased in the general population: the time lapse between the first symptoms of sexual dysfunction and the seeking of medical advice has been significantly reduced, whereas demand for a treatment has markedly increased.
Epidemiology of Premature Ejaculation and its Impact on Quality of Life
It is important that women understand the issue and provide adequate moral support to the male partner to address the issue together and to improve the men’s quality of life.
Evaluation of Premature Ejaculation
The progress in PE research is discussed including evidence based evaluation methods and the classification of PE into four PE subtypes is relevant for pharmacotherapy and counseling of men with complaints of PE.

A robust metaanalysis of available data linking ED with premature ejaculation (PE) concludes that the connection between ED and PE in certain circumstances is real and may allow for the evaluation and treatment of either presenting symptom to become clearer.
Management of premature ejaculation: a clinical guideline from the Italian Society of Andrology and Sexual Medicine (SIAMS)
Evidence-based clinical guidelines provide the necessary up-to-date guidance in the context of PE secondary to organic and psychosexological conditions, such as prostate inflammation, endocrine disorders, and other sexual dysfunctions, and suggest how to associate pharmacotherapies and cognitive-behavioral therapy in a couple-centered approach.


AUA guideline on the pharmacologic management of premature ejaculation.
Recommendations on the use of medications currently available in the United States are provided, based on a consensus of expert opinion following review of the literature, which assumes the absence of partner sexual dysfunction.
Premature ejaculation: an observational study of men and their partners.
Shorter IELT was significantly associated with reduced ejaculatory control and sexual satisfaction and increased distress and interpersonal difficulty, indicating the need for additional PRO measures to characterize PE.
Erectile dysfunction: Expectations beyond phosphodiesterase Type 5 inhibition
This review is intended to give the clinician some basic concepts of the pathophysiology of erection with relevance to the clinical practice, and to discuss the newest therapeutic approaches for those patients who do not respond to the treatment with oral inhibitors of phosphodiesterase Type 5.
Penile sensitivity in men with premature ejaculation
Penile hypersensitivity, as measured by an SMV-5 vibrometer, does not appear to be a major factor contributing to premature ejaculation.
Evaluation and Treatment of Premature Ejaculation: A Critical Review
The pause-squeeze technique remains the current treatment of choice for the disorder, however, this unitary treatment recommendation disguises a multidimensional disorder which has yet to evolve an operational definition, psychometrically sound assessment procedures, or clearly articulated etiology.
Disorders of ejaculation
Premature ejaculation is in fact classically considered psychogenic in nature, but recent data have demonstrated that pro-static inflammation/infection has been found with high frequency in premature ejaculation, suggesting a role of prostatic pathologies in the patho-genesis of some cases of failure of ejaculatory control.
Defining Premature Ejaculation for Experimental and Clinical Investigations
A flowchart is suggested, based on data and a rational analysis of 40 years of research, for characterizing PE in ways that could assist the development of the field.
