INTRODUCTION. Premature ejaculation (PE) is quite common. Although effective treatments do exist, only a few affected people consult a practitioner in order to overcome their problem. At the same time, studies have shown that reading didactical documents about their PE problem (bibliotherapy) can be useful to men. AIM. The aim of this study was to improve the bibliotherapy approach using up to date knowledge and techniques. The expected benefits were: (1) an effective manual shorter than previous ones, (2) easier to assimilate therapeutic principles and (3) a method thereby made accessible to a broad population most of whom usually do not consult for this type of sexual problem. METHOD. A short bibliotherapy titled The Practical Guide of PE [in French] was tested among PE subjects who were diagnosed with PE according to DSM-IV-TR criteria. Assessments were made at baseline (N = 421), at 4-8 months (N = 120) and at 10-14 months (N = 79) after they read The Practical Guide. A control group of 66 subjects was left on a waiting list and was assessed two months after baseline. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES. Self-reported ejaculatory latency time, feeling of control upon ejaculation, sexual satisfaction, distress related to PE, anxiety experienced during sexual intercourse and sexual cognitions (SIQ). RESULTS. Significant improvements were found for all the self-reported parameters, both at 4-8 and at 10-14 months after the bibliotherapy. The improvements were associated with an adjustment of sexual cognitions. The response to treatment seemed better for those subjects with moderate PE. Although the severity criteria used in this study did not precisely meet the ISSM criteria for lifelong PE, they were likely related. The response did not seem to be affected by variables such as age, education or personality. CONCLUSION. Its cost/benefit ratio makes The Practical Guide a valuable therapeutic tool. [less ▲]

An original technique of insertion and corporotomy closure on the level proximal is described. Proximal angle of corporotomy is closed on the pipe of the hydraulic cylinder by a point of vicryl which was installed before the device implantation. This simple technique allows correct installation of proximal extremity of the prosthesis in the tail of the cavernous body and avoids damage and perforation to the prothesis.
