Premature Ejaculation presents a unique and innovative therapeutic program for the successful treatment of premature ejaculation. This descriptive and well-structured program is fundamentally different from traditional sex therapy and contemporary sexual medicine. Centred on the management of sexual excitement, it enables couples to prolong the length of intercourse without having to interrupt their lovemaking or resort to medication. The program’s sexological approach also empowers couples with the skills and knowledge to strengthen their sex life leading to a healthier and happier relationship.

Combining theory and practical instruction, François de Carufel’s book promotes a better understanding of premature ejaculation. It offers a new perspective on the causes of this dysfunction and provides practitioners and therapists with concrete ways to assist men and women in improving their sex life.

Premature Ejaculation will be of interest and value to health professionals and graduate students in all fields dealing with sexual difficulties, including psychology, social work, medicine, physical therapy, nursing and counselling.


"The author is congratulated for successfully delivering his well-established sexual management program for men with ejaculatory problems into this book. The integrated techniques are clearly described and should provide a valuable and accessible resource that can bring about meaningful change in this common and often challenging clinical situation for a man and his partner". - Kevan Wylie, MD FRCP FRCPsych FRCOG FECSM, Honorary Professor, University of Sheffield, UK, President of the World Association for Sexual Health.

"At a time when we sometimes blindly turn to pharmacologic strategies for sexual problems, it is heartening to come across a thoughtful, evidence-based sexological approach to a common male sexual complaint. Dr. de Carufel's concise yet comprehensive treatment guidance for men with premature ejaculation is a welcome addition to the clinical sexology toolbox." - Marta Meana, PhD, Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Nevada , Las Vegas, Past President of the Society for Sex Therapy and Research

"This book provides a description of a unique approach to the treatment of premature ejaculation, which focuses on the management of sexual excitement rather than on the control of the ejaculatory process. The detailed description of this approach may be helpful to many clinicians". - Robert Taylor Segraves, MD PhD, Professor of psychiatry, Case Western Reserve University, Editor-in-chief of the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy

"This book is essential because it teaches men that their body is like a musical instrument on which they can play pleasurable melodies in harmony with their partner. To be read, meditated upon and applied!" - Mireille Bonierbale, MD, Psychiatre-sexologue, Présidente de l’Association interdisciplinaire post universitaire de sexologie, Rédactrice en Chef de Sexologies : Revue Européenne de Santé sexuelle, Directrice de l'enseignement du DIU de Sexologie des CHU de Marseille et Montpellier.
