Premature Ejaculation and Genetics

In 1943, Schapiro noted that men with premature ejaculation seemed to have family members with similar complaints (19). Remarkably, this interesting observation has never been cited. To investigate the potential familial occurrence of premature ejaculation, I routinely asked 237 consecutively enrolled men with premature ejaculation about the family occurrence of similar complaints (23). Because of embarrassment only 14 men consented to ask male relatives about ejaculation latency. These 14 men reported a total of 11 first degree male relatives with information available for direct personal interview. In fact, 10 relatives fulfilled our strictly defined criterion of an ejaculation time of 1 min or less. In this small selected group of men, the calculated risk of having a first relative with premature ejaculation was 91% (CI 59-99). Therefore, the odds of family occurrence are much higher than the suggested population prevalence rate of 4-39%. Moreover, the high odds ratio indicates a familiar occurrence of the syndrome, far higher than by chance alone. On the basis of this preliminary observation, the influence of genetics gains substantial credibility (23).
