Some studies have claimed that Premature Ejaculation is caused by a psychological source. However, recent studies on Dutch men have brought forth the idea that maybe genetics play a larger role.
The study tested 89 men who have had trouble with premature ejaculation since their first sexual experience. In these men, Serotonin levels were far lower than the 92 men that had never had such experiences. The areas of the brain that lacked sufficient levels of Serotonin were the same areas that control ejaculation.
Dr. Marcel Waldinger, the conductor of the study, determined that this means it may be possible to treat Premature Ejaculation with gene therapy.
Dr. Hall, a psychotherapist, confirmed that Premature Ejaculation is not purely psychological and that “serotonin was linked ejaculation and that researchers were developing drugs for the condition that prolong this hormone’s action.”
