    Most guys can actually only have intercourse for an average of about two to five minutes before ejaculating. For men with premature ejaculation (PE), though, that's an eternity -- most can only last about a minute or less before they come. How do we know this?

    Researchers have devised a system called Intravaginal Ejaculatory Latency Time (IELT), which measures how long a man can have intercourse before he ejaculates. Different researchers have found different times, but most report that men with PE typically last somewhere between 15 and 60 seconds. Many guys with PE can't even make it to penetration, so they have a hard time enjoying the full spectrum of sexual possibility.
