In fact, Jamaican men pride themselves so much on their incredible stamina in the bedroom that very few would dare to admit that they climax sooner than they planned and will even try various 'products' to increase their staying power. However, one recent study found more than 1, men who were willing to open up on the subject, and share intimate details of why they ejaculate sooner than they intended during sexual intercourse. In the study, published online in the Journal of Sexual Medicine , approximately 30 per cent of men said they were dissatisfied with how long they lasted in bed. Of the more than 1, men who participated, of them reported that they ejaculated sooner than they wanted to during sex. The researchers then split the men into two groups - those who met the criteria for premature ejaculation classified as ejaculating in less than two minutes and those who lasted longer, but were still finishing sooner than they desired. When the researchers asked the men why they thought they ejaculated earlier than expected, most men from both groups said it was either a lack of control or hypersensitivity.
