Menarini has recently launched an advocacy that focuses on promoting awareness on premature ejaculation among Filipino couples.

I have a glimpse of sexual health knowledge about Premature Ejaculation.  Actually, I am just covering the said event.  Neither then, I was also oriented as this is new to me.

To give you more the idea, here are some write-ups:

Menarini launches “Commit to Control PE” advocacy for couples

Armed with the knowledge that 20% of relationships and marriages break down because of premature ejaculation, the sexual dysfunction suffered by 1 out of 3 men, the corporation aspires to inspire and encourage men to take action against this disorder.

Until recently, the winds have finally changed, and the topic is no longer confined and whispered about in secret.

In the first ever summit on Premature Ejaculation, the media and celebrity couples were free to speak up on what they know about the topic, and offer insights, observations — and even eye-opening stories were put forward by the likes of Anthony Pangilinan and Maricel-Laxa Pangilinan, Paolo Abrera and wife Suzie Entrata, Regine Tolentino and husband Lander Vera-Perez.

The lively exchange catalysed an open discussion of the condition. Experts were there providing guidance and wisdom:

  • Dr. Dennis Serrano explains the condition: Premature ejaculation (PE) occurs when a man is unable to control or delay ejaculation on his own wish after vaginal penetration, resulting in short latency time and decreased sexual satisfaction, as well as personal distress and interpersonal difficulty. Premature ejaculation (PE) is the most common sexual dysfunction in men, even higher than Erectile Dysfunction.
  • Dr. Margie Holmes stressed that the issue centers more on lack of control and should be measured not just by time but more on the ability to satisfy one’s partner.

During the summit, necessary actions that should be taken by a sufferer surfaced and were confirmed: begin by facing up to the issue… work with your partner — be supportive of each other’s needs and lack, discuss with your partner and the most crucial step, consult with your doctor. As the Sex Survey showed, couple tried different methods, and unfortunately reaching out to a doctor is not high on the list.

Premature ejaculation is not just a physiological problem affecting men, it is an issue that affects relationships between partners, between husbands and wives. Stress, dissatisfaction, insecurity – the problem of PE affects many, and sadly behind closed doors, many choose to brush it away, when in fact, they can get help.

This is one of the objectives of this event and like most things, awareness leads to understanding, understanding will lead to acceptance. And hopefully with acceptance (instead of denial) people can seek help, specifically from their doctors.

The company had set up a website that can help guide a man — and his partner, in determining if he indeed suffers from this condition. Visit for more information.
