premature ejaculation in numbers


One in three men suffers from premature ejaculation.

The average age of PE sufferer is 42.

23% of sufferers attribute their early climaxing simply “getting older.”

However, PE affects men of all ages and demographics:

  • 18-24 – 10.9%;
  • 25-34 – 21%;
  • 35-44 – 23.6%;
  • 45-54 – 21.7%;
  • 55-70 – 22.8%.

Indeed, 68% of men with premature ejaculation are married (or living with their partner).

It’s not just us mere mortals, either: PE even affected the Greek God of fire, Hephaestus.


Over a third of men say they have learned to live with their premature ejaculation.

88% of PE sufferers want further help.

41% of men have turned to alcohol to address their condition.

And 16% have even tried illicit drugs.

Only 9% of men will see their doctor or physician about the issue.

And just 4.5% see a psychotherapist.

Of those who did seek professional help:

  • 92% of those, who saw a doctor, recorded little or no improvement;
  • 96% of those, who saw a therapist, marked low or no increase.


More than 1/2 of PE sufferers have tried special positions during sex to try and to improve their sexual performance.

Attempted treatments in history have included:

  • lotus flowers (Ancient Egypt);
  • oysters (Ancient Romans);
  • electrotherapy (early C.20th).

Other holistic therapies are still tried today:

  • meditation;
  • acupuncture;
  • psychoanalysis.

There is no medical evidence these treatments work.

There is a solution, however. You can take anti premature ejaculation supplements, for example, TestPlus.
