Premature orgasms

It’s not only men that suffer from premature orgasms, according to scientists.

A study from the Hospital Magalhães Lemos in Portugal found a surprising percentage of women also peak too early during sex.

The survey of 510 Portuguese women, found that 40 per cent reported that they suffered from the sexual dysfunction while 3 per cent described the problem as chronic.

Traditionally premature ejaculation is a medical phenomenon associated with men but researchers wanted to discover if women are also affected.

A questionnaire was sent out to a cross-section of females aged between 18 and 45, which addressed the frequency of premature orgasm, if they ever felt a loss of control over the timing of the orgasm and if the issue caused distress.

The results revealed that, 40 per cent had experienced an orgasm earlier than desired at some point.

Findings revealed that the condition can pose a problem for many people, leading to ‘personal or couple discomfort’ during intercourse.

Despite premature orgasms affecting a surprising proportion, an inability to orgasm has been shown to be a more widespread problem – now we could have told them that!

A 2010 study of American women found that 54 per cent of women aged between 18 and 30 reported trouble reaching orgasm, making it the most common sexual complaint.

Are you one of the 40 per cent who suffer with premature orgasms?  Tell us why you think that it happens to you.

Or you one of the more common 54 per cent who have trouble reaching orgasm? We probably know why, but tell us anyway.
