Male Rat Sexual Behavior

Male rat studies have demonstrated that serotonin (5-HT) and 5-HT receptors are involved in the ejaculatory process. As far as is currently known, 5-HT2C and 5-HT1A receptors determine the speed of ejaculation. For example, studies with D-lysergic acid diethylamide and quipazine, which are nonselective 5-HT2C agonists, suggest that stimulating 5-HT2C receptors delays ejaculation (3). However, 2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodophenyl-2-aminopropane, which equally stimulates 5-HT2A and 5-HT2C receptors, also increases ejaculation latency (4), whereas the selective 5-HT2A receptor agonist 2,5-dimethoxy-4-methylampheta-mine does not have this effect (3). On the other hand, activation of postsynaptic 5-HT1A receptors by the selective 5-HT1A receptor agonist 8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylaminotetralin) in male rats resulted in shorter ejaculation latency (3).

On the basis of these male rat studies, Waldinger (1,5) has hypothesized that premature ejaculation is related to a hypofunction of the 5-HT2C receptor and/or a hyperfunction of the 5-HT1A receptor. In contrast, delayed ejaculation is postulated to be related to a hyperfunction of the 5-HT2C receptor and/or a hypofunction of the 5-HT1A receptor.
