INTRODUCTION Over the past 20 years our knowledge of premature ejaculation (PE) has significantly advanced. Specifically, we have witnessed substantial progress in understanding the physiology of ejaculation, clarifying the real prevalence of PE in population-based studies, reconceptualizing the definition and diagnostic criterion of the disorder, assessing the psychosocial impact on patients and partners, designing validated diagnostic and outcome measures, proposing new pharmacologic…

An update of the International Society of Sexual Medicine's guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of premature ejaculation (PE).
TLDR
A new unified definition of PE is offered and best practices treatment recommendations are presented to guide clinicians, both familiar and unfamiliar with PE, in facilitating treatment of their patients.
An Update of the International Society of Sexual Medicine's Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Premature Ejaculation (PE)
TLDR
An update of the International Society of Sexual Medicine's guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of premature ejaculation (PE) and best practices treatment recommendations are presented to guide clinicians, both familiar and unfamiliar with PE, in facilitating treatment of their patients.
Premature ejaculation: an update on definition and pathophysiology
TLDR
To understand the revised definition of PE, its etiology and pathophysiology is necessary to improve the clinical management of this medical condition and form the basis of future research in this regard.
Management of premature ejaculation: a clinical guideline from the Italian Society of Andrology and Sexual Medicine (SIAMS)
TLDR
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.
Premature Ejaculation: 2020 Update
TLDR
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.
Redefining a sexual medicine paradigm: subclinical premature ejaculation as a new taxonomic entity
TLDR
Application of these diagnoses to men who meet the criteria for SPE and/or LCEE, but not the overt conditions, could improve access to treatment for these patients and reduce progression to the more serious clinical disorder.
New insights on premature ejaculation: a review of definition, classification, prevalence and treatment.
TLDR
The complaints of acquired PE patients may be more severe, whereas complaints of patients experiencing premature-like ejaculatory dysfunction seem to be least severe among men with various forms of PE.
Oral agents for the treatment of premature ejaculation: review of efficacy and safety in the context of the recent International Society for Sexual Medicine criteria for lifelong premature ejaculation.
TLDR
This systematic review of well-controlled clinical trials in PE has demonstrated that while many oral agents, particularly SSRIs, tramadol, and dapoxetine have proven effective and safe for the treatment of men with PE, few have been evaluated for their effects on the specific elements of the ISSM criteria.
Advantages and limitations of current premature ejaculation assessment and diagnostic methods: a review.
TLDR
A comprehensive penile stimulation that simulates sexual intercourse could be useful to record intensity and duration parameters before the ejaculatory threshold, providing a more accurate method of describing and diagnosing PE versus a single chronological observation.

An evidence-based definition of lifelong premature ejaculation: report of the International Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM) ad hoc committee for the definition of premature ejaculation.
TLDR
The ISSM definition of lifelong PE represents the first evidence-based definition of PE, and will hopefully lead to the development of new tools and Patient Reported Outcome measures for diagnosing and assessing the efficacy of treatment interventions and encourage ongoing research into the true prevalence of this disorder.
AUA guideline on the pharmacologic management of premature ejaculation.
TLDR
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.

TLDR
It is proposed that combination therapy integrating sex therapy and sexual pharmaceuticals is frequently the best treatment approach for premature ejaculation and this approach would result in prolonged ejaculatory latency, improved treatment satisfaction, and superior long-term outcome.
Disorders of orgasm and ejaculation in men.
TLDR
The recommendations concerning state-of-the-art knowledge of disorders of orgasm and ejaculation represent the opinion of seven experts from seven countries developed in a process over a 2-year period.

TLDR
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.
Development and evaluation of the Arabic Index of Premature Ejaculation (AIPE).
TLDR
AIPE shows a potential to be a reliable aid to decrease the number of misdiagnosed cases of PE and presents data supporting its validity.
