INTRODUCTION Recently, in anticipation of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders V, much consideration has been given to the diagnostic criteria for premature ejaculation (PE). The scientific community is yet to agree not only on the etiology of PE, but also on the most suitable diagnosis and forms of treatment. It has been suggested that the diagnostic criteria of PE should be strictly empirical and rely on intravaginal latency time alone, whereas others stress the need to… 
Premature Ejaculation: 2020 Update
Although the pathophysiology of these four PE syndromes has not been completely elucidated yet, pharmacotherapy must be considered the treatment of choice for lifelong PE patients whereas treating the underlying pathology must be the initial goal for patients with acquired PE.
No Evidence for Long-Term Causal Associations Between Symptoms of Premature Ejaculation and Symptoms of Anxiety, Depression, and Sexual Distress in a Large, Population-Based Longitudinal Sample
When fitting structural equation models to test hypothesized causal pathways, symptoms of anxiety and sexual distress at the first measurement time point did not predict future PE or predict increments or decrements in anxiety, sexual distress, or depression later on.
Canadian male sexual health council survey to assess prevalence and treatment of premature ejaculation in Canada.
PE is a prevalent sexual problem that poses special challenges to clinicians and causes considerable burden to Canadian men and their partners, and there remains a stigma associated with PE.
Psychometric Properties of the Iranian Version of the Premature Ejaculation Diagnostic Tool
The PEDT was invariant across sexual health status and perceived similarly by men with and without PE, and represents a suitable tool for screening PE in Iranian men.
Considerations for an evidence-based definition of premature ejaculation in the DSM-V.
It is recommended that the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual committee adopt criteria similar to those adopted by the International Society of Sexual Medicine, and lifelong PE in heterosexual men be defined as ejaculation occurring within approximately 1 minute of vaginal penetration on 75% of occasions for at least 6 months.
The impact of ejaculatory dysfunction upon the sufferer and his partner

In conclusion, ejaculatory dysfunction has a negative impact on both the man and his female partner and, consequently, it has implications for the couple as a whole.
Risks Factors in Premature Ejaculation: The Genetic Risk Factor
There is no real hard evidence today to suggest that being a first-degree relative of a man with lifelong premature ejaculation is a risk factor for PE, and genetic research of PE should consider the existence of these PE subtypes and the accurate measurement of the IELT with a stopwatch.
Subjectively measured ejaculation latency time and its association with different sexual activities while controlling for age and relationship length.
The findings highlight the need for more extensive studies on and increased knowledge of different aspects of ejaculatory function before a valid and suitable definition for premature ejaculation can be formulated.
Toward Evidence-Based Genetic Research on Lifelong Premature Ejaculation: A Critical Evaluation of Methodology
It is important to take into account that the (serotonergic) modulation of the IELT is variable among men and may even be absent, which means that serotonergic genetic polymorphisms may only be found in men with PE who respond with an ejaculation delay treatment with a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor.
History of Premature Ejaculation
The initial rather rigid view that all men with PE should undergo psychotherapy has changed to a more flexible view that various treatments can be applied to treat PE and that psychoeducation and counselling remains essential in every treatment.


Dysregulation of emotions and premature ejaculation (PE): alexithymia in 100 outpatients.
It is suggested that alexithymic features, and in particular, an externally oriented cognitive style, can be seen as possible risk and/or maintenance factors for PE, and may contribute to a more serious manifestation of this condition.
Premature and delayed ejaculation: genetic and environmental effects in a population-based sample of Finnish twins.
The results suggested moderate genetic influence on PE, but not on DE, and omission of the additive genetic component did not directly result in a significantly decreased model fit for the PE model.
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.
Etiology of ejaculation and pathophysiology of premature ejaculation.
The pathophysiology of both lifelong and acquired PE appears to be both neurobiogenic and psychogenic, and pharmacologic intervention of PE can modify intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (IELT), which suggests that IELT is a biological variable, and is likely biologically dependent upon neurotransmitters and hormones.
Diagnosing premature ejaculation: a review.
The diagnosis of PE is based upon sexual history of a shortened latency time, poor control over ejaculation, low satisfaction with intercourse, and distress regarding the condition.
Prevalence of premature ejaculation: a global and regional perspective.

The effort to determine the global burden of premature ejaculation (PE) has been impeded by the lack of a clear and universally accepted definition of the condition, but current evidence suggests a global prevalence of PE of approximately 30% across all age groups.
Correlation between ejaculatory and erectile dysfunction.
The aim of this review article is to propose a new taxonomy of PE, which considers ED as an important factor of PE and vice versa.
