INTRODUCTION A number of different theoretical approaches to understanding the etiology of ejaculatory dysfunction have been proposed, but no behavior genetic study has yet, to our knowledge, been conducted to explore the genetic and environmental influences on ejaculatory dysfunction. AIM The aim of the present study was to explore the genetic and environmental effects on premature (PE) and delayed (DE) ejaculation in a population-based sample. METHODS The genetic and environmental… Expand

Evidence for a genetic etiology to ejaculatory dysfunction
TLDR
A significant moderate genetic effect (28%) was found for PE and no clear-cut familial effect could be detected for DE, and significant associations between ejaculatory function and age were detected, but effects of age were generally very weak. Expand
Indicators of premature ejaculation and their associations with sexual distress in a population-based sample of young twins and their siblings.
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). TheExpand
Risks Factors in Premature Ejaculation: The Genetic Risk Factor
TLDR
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. Expand
Toward Evidence-Based Genetic Research on Lifelong Premature Ejaculation: A Critical Evaluation of Methodology
TLDR
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.

Twin Studies and Quantitative Genetics in Premature Ejaculation Research
Recently, investigators have put increasing efforts into understanding the genetic etiology of premature ejaculation. The quantitative genetic approach, in which twin and/or family data is used toExpand
Pathophysiology of premature ejaculation.

TLDR
Most of the proposed biological and psychological aetiologies of PE are not evidence-based and/or that attempts to confirm them have given conflicting results, and there are good data to support roles for genetic and psychological factors in lifelong PE. Expand
Gene Variants in Premature Ejaculation: Systematic Review and Future Directions.
TLDR
This systematic review has highlighted several genes that may be potentially associated with PE such as SLC6A4, and limitations such as variance in study methods, lack of robust findings, small sample sizes, and quality of reporting remain a major concern. Expand
Premature and delayed ejaculation: two ends of a single continuum influenced by hormonal milieu.
TLDR
Endocrine system is involved in the control of ejaculatory function and that PRL, TSH and testosterone play an independent role, according to a large series of subjects consulting for sexual dysfunction. Expand
Erectile Dysfunction in Young Men: Testosterone, Androgenic Polymorphisms, and Comorbidity With Premature Ejaculation Symptoms.
TLDR
Data suggest that ED has T-independent causes and that any comorbidity between PE and ED is not explained by a set of genes affecting both phenotypes, and no evidence suggesting that any of the genetic polymorphisms would moderate the association between T and ED symptoms is found. Expand
A Reassessment of the Possible Effects of the Serotonin Transporter Gene Linked Polymorphism 5-HTTLPR on Premature Ejaculation
TLDR
The present study indicated that the 5-HTTLPR polymorphism has a limited, if any, impact on ejaculatory function. Expand

Lifelong premature ejaculation: definition, serotonergic neurotransmission and drug treatment
TLDR
Based on fundamental insights into serotonergic neurotransmission, it is suggested that on-demand conventional SSRI treatment will not lead to similarly impressive ejaculation delay as that found after daily conventional SSri treatment. Expand
Prevalence of premature ejaculation: a global and regional perspective.
TLDR
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. Expand
The need for a revival of psychoanalytic investigations into premature ejaculation
TLDR
A revival of psychoanalytic research of PE in the four distinct, classified PE groups will probably contribute to a deeper insight in to the unconscious mental life of men affected by PE. Expand
Retarded ejaculation in men: an overview of psychological and neurobiological insights
TLDR
It is proposed that human research should start with the development of an operational definition of delayed ejaculation, and unselected epidemiological stopwatch studies are proposed which also provide information on the prevalence and incidence ofdelayed ejaculation in men. Expand
Lifelong premature ejaculation: current debate on definition and treatment
TLDR
Data of recent epidemiological stopwatch research of the intravaginal ejaculation latency time (IELT) support an ejaculation distribution theory, of a continuum of IELT in the general male population. Expand
Premature ejaculation: prevalence and associated conditions in a sample of 12,558 men attending the andrology prevention week 2001--a study of the Italian Society of Andrology (SIA).
TLDR
The results of the analysis of a large dataset show that subjects with PE who are seeking treatment either have experienced stress-related problems or have a physical condition predisposing to this dysfunction (genital anomalies, prostate inflammation). Expand
Proposal for a definition of lifelong premature ejaculation based on epidemiological stopwatch data.
TLDR
Lifelong premature ejaculation is defined as a neurobiological dysfunction with an unacceptable increase of risk to develop sexual and psychological problems anywhere in a lifetime. Expand
Premature ejaculation--does country of origin tell us anything about etiology?
TLDR
It appears that there is a preponderance of men from Islamic and Asian backgrounds presenting to the authors' unit with premature ejaculation, and possible mechanisms include psychosocial, familial, or genetic influences. Expand
The Neurobiological Approach to Premature Ejaculation
TLDR
Psychopharmacological treatment studies, animal research data and stopwatch assessments in men with rapid (premature) ejaculation indicate that lifelong rapid ejaculation is a neurobiological phenomenon related to central serotonergic neurotransmission and likely influenced by hereditary fac...

The Relationships Among Ejaculatory Control, Ejaculatory Latency, and Attempts to Prolong Heterosexual Intercourse
TLDR
Results indicated that although the four RE criteria were significantly correlated, the magnitudes of these correlations were small, suggesting that these commonly used RE criteria are largely independent and are not interchangeable and that research in this area needs to adopt a multivariate approach to assessment.
