Abstract

A new definition was recently developed by a consensus panel of the International Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM). It is likely that no single dimension defines premature ejaculation (PE) and that the definition should involve multiple dimensions, such as time, perceived control over ejaculation, personal and partner distress, reduced sexual satisfaction, and relationship difficulty.
