Abstract

Approximately 20–30% of sexually active men suffer from Premature Ejaculation (PE), but the pathophysiology still remains unclear and the current available treatments for PE are unsatisfying. Considering the role of rhythmic bulbospongiosus and ischiocavernosus Muscles contractions on the ejaculatory reflex, we hypothesize that weakening this muscles via inhibiting it's contractions by Application of Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation prior to the planned sexual activity, may have a beneficial effect in the treatment of PE. Using miniaturized perineal on-demand stimulation device, in a home setting during sexual intercourse may become the first line of treatment for PE.
