Finishing Too Soon: Why it Happens to Men and How to Stop It

by John Dugan Owner

Finishing too soon. Even the thought of this problem can make even the hardiest male shudder. Most men may scoff and claim it never happens to them, that their stamina is so great that they can go all night if necessary. But in fact, it’s the rare man who has not at least once or twice released a load of semen before he was ready to (or before his partner was ready for it).  And while there can be a connection between male organ health and performance status, sometimes even men who take superb care of their equipment can be a little quick on the trigger.

How many?

Just how common a problem is finishing too soon? There’s some debate on this point.

For example, a study was conducted in the United States that found about 75% of men came within two minutes of penetration about half of the time they had intimate contact. On the other hand, a more recent British survey found that only 10% of men claimed they sometimes had this issue. And other surveys have come up with figures of 20% to 30% of men being affected.


Why such wide variation? Were men in the 1940s simply less able to control their release? Perhaps, but it more likely has to do with a variety of things, including how the problem is defined, who is being asked, how the questions are phrased and how honest the respondents are being.

So what does it mean to finish too soon in the bedroom? Even here there is some disagreement. The Mayo Clinic considers it to mean consistently finishing within one minute of starting. A 2006 study concluded that men with this issue lasted, on average, 1.8 minutes. One 2005 study found that the average man lasts 5.4 minutes, and so theoretically anything under that could be considered too soon.

Practically, a man might be considered an early ender simply if he came before his partner was satisfied. If the partner also finishes after 1 minute, does it really matter if the man does, too? But by that same token, a man who can last for 30 or 40 minutes would be considered a quick shooter if his partner takes longer to reach fulfillment.


So there’s confusion about what constitutes finishing too quickly; however, most scientists agree that lasting between 3 and 7 minutes is pretty typical for men. Guys who fall short of that mark may be considered too early.


Many men are quick on the draw yet aren’t bothered by it. They accept it, enjoy their time inside their partner and are fine with finding other ways to please their partner once they have finished.

But some men desire more and so may seek treatment, which can be an involved process. Sometimes a man learns to last longer simply through age and experience. But there are a number of treatments (behavioral modification, topical anesthetic applications, counseling, kegel exercises, deep breathing, tantric exercises, oral medications, etc.) often employed to help a man last longer. They work well for some men, perhaps not so well for others.

If a man finds that, despite his best efforts, he still does not have the stamina he wishes he had when in an intimate situation, it’s best to remember that the quality of the contact is of much more importance than the duration. The man who is a tender, thoughtful lover is the true prize, whether his stamina is great or modest.

A healthy manhood is also a bonus, and regular use of a top shelf male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help a man achieve this. The crème should include both L-arginine and L-carnitine. The former is an amino acid that’s useful in the creation of nitric oxide, which in turns helps keep the blood vessels open and receptive to the increased blood flow needed for a happily functioning member. And L-carnitine is beneficial for the manhood that has experienced rough handling and is feeling a diminishment of sensation as a result. This neuroprotective ingredient helps restore lost sensation in the member.
