You know how the song “stay a little bit longer” goes? Whenever I’m with my special someone, I always wanted to be with him for a longer period of time. I guess I’m THAT smitten whenever I’m with him. Lately, I have attended an event where being with your partner longer goes hand in hand. For the men who might be reading this, let’s talk about real relationship, and how you make it better for us women, shall we?
Menarini, the world’s largest Italian biopharmaceutical company in the world recently launched an advocacy that focuses promoting awareness on PE or premature ejaculation among Filipino couples. Now, let’s all be mature here. Did you know that 20% of relationships and marriages break down because of it? I guess it’s because love is always a two-way street. And they say that having a wife is a happy life, right? This sexual dysfunction is suffered by 1 out of 3 men and Menarini wants to take action to encourage men to face this problem.
Philippines is still one of the traditional and conservative countries I know. And talking about premature ejaculation would still be a sore subject, if not given proper attention. But you know, I’d rather have my partner tell me this, or we’ll just ban the relationship for life. Luckily for the men of today, media and celebrity couples were free to speak up on what they know about the topic, and offer insights, observations and even eye-opening stories. Celebrity couples Anthony and Maricel Laxa Pangilinan, Paolo Abrera and Suzie Entrata, Regine Tolentino and Lander Vera-Perez initiated an open discussion about the condition. And I think they could best talk about it, considering they are the long-time couples in the industry, with the happiest families I know. Joining them was Dr. Margie Holmes, popular author and psychologist specializing in sex therapy and Dr. Dennis Serrano, urologist and men’s health expert.
During the summit, they discussed the necessary actions that we should note, especially on the sufferer’s part. As I’ve said earlier, you should begin by facing the issue and talk to your partner about it. That was, you can be supportive of your needs and shortcomings. Be with each other when you see a doctor, because you will need all the support system that you should get.
But what exactly is Premature ejaculation? Dr. Serrano explains that “it occurs when a man is unable to control or delay ejaculation on his own wish after penetration, resulting in short latency time and decreased sexual satisfaction, as well as personal distress and interpersonal difficulty. Premature ejaculation (PE) is the most common sexual dysfunction in men, even higher than Erectile Dysfunction”. Dr. Margie Holmes seconded that “the issue centers more on lack of control and should be measured not just by time but more on the ability to satisfy one’s partner”.
Not being able to satisfy your partner is one big a problem. It’s stressful not just physically, but also emotionally. Say, this man wants to avoid being in bed with his lady because of his problem, as a woman, I would feel a lot of things like: a. he doesn’t like me that much; b. I’m not desirable enough, and the list goes on. You know how some women tend to think too much right?
Menarini’s answer to that is introducing Dapoxetine in the country. It is the first and only drug specifically developed for the treatment of PE and is now approved in over 50 countries. It has been tried and tested in over 16,000 men worldwide and it certainly improved controlling PE and provided sexual satisfaction for couples. Dapoxetine is available by prescription in 30mg and 60mg oral tablets.
So how longer can you control? Seek help from your doctor now and reduce the dissatisfaction, insecurity and the many problems of PE now. Happy wife, happy life – always remember that.
