Researchers Confirm Premature Ejaculation Essential for Human Survival
September 22, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsResearchers from the European Center of Reproductive Research (ECRR) have now confirmed previous theorizations that human males are genetically 'wired' to ejaculate prematurely.
The team, led by molecular genetics associate professor Eva-Lotte Homburg, centered the ECRR's 2 year study upon the previously documented theory that 'premature ejaculation of human males ensured the reproduction and survival of the human race'.
Referring to the documentation Homburg stated, 'the theory hypothesized that, if human females reached an acceptable level of sexual satisfaction (i.e. orgasm), prior to male ejaculation (within the female), a statistical majority of sexual encounters would cease prior to a male reaching ejaculation. Put simply, if a woman reached her sexual climax before the male it was more likely she would cease the continuation of sex before the male had an opportunity to ejaculate'.
Explaining further Homburg said that if the theory were true and a statistical majority of female's ceased sexual intercourse before their partner's opportunity to ejaculate, the human species would not be able to maintain any significant population growth. It is therefore surmised that the human population would more than likely dwindle to extinction, or in fact not have been able to procreate in significant numbers to advance a survivable population of the species.
Funded under a three-year grant from the Belgian Federal Department of Health and Sciences, Homburgs team of researchers were able to map the neuronal activation of the brain during ejaculatory response and study the expression of c-fos within the medial preoptic area (MPOA).
Using a proprietary technique, researchers discovered the human brains ejaculation 'timing mechanism' (ETMch) within the MPOA. 'Being able to identify and pinpoint precisely the brains mechanism for timing male ejaculation was a significant discovery, said Homburg. The research team speculated that if they were able to temporarily disrupt the specific pathway within the MPOA that premature ejaculating males would, as a result, be able to maintain extended periods of penis erection, stimulation and arousal without ejaculation.
By using a rudimentary and non-invasive procedure the team was able to isolate the ETMch and temporarily disrupt its specific neurological pathway. The results on volunteers were immediate and astounding. Homburgs test results showed that when the specific neurological pathway within the MPOA was disrupted, test subjects did not feel any sensation or need to ejaculate although all senses of stimulation and arousal remained while penis erection was maintained.
However, out of approximately 200 male volunteers a significant number (19%) suffered from a temporary condition known as vascocongestion, caused from prolonged sexual stimulation. This condition was immediately relieved when the temporary disruption of the neurological pathway ceased and test subjects were allowed to reach orgasm.
Homburgs findings have advanced the existing understanding of neuronal activity during ejaculatory response and have confirmed the theorizations on why human males are genetically structured to ejaculate prematurely.
Says Homburg, 'all men, as well as women, should feel comforted by these results and understand that while human male premature ejaculation may be disappointing to some, it plays one of the most vital and significant roles in human reproduction and population expansion of the human race'.
Homburgs team has been approved further funding to produce a marketable version of their non-invasive neurological (MPOA) disrupt technique. The team plans to make it publicly available within the next three-years. Patent application for the technique has been approved. The project is scheduled to end October 2010.
