Premature: Ejaculation is sometimes called ill-timed ejaculation. It is a subjective evaluation. You may orgasm too quickly and not satisfy your partner. If you have concerns you can see your doc or a licensed sex therapist. It is not an illness. Peace and good health. It is not related to masturbation.
