Premature ejaculation

Disappointing? Sure. Embarrassing? Yes. But premature ejaculation, like flatulence, constipation and diarrhoea, may just be a part of life. The proof: a 1948 study by the noted biologist Alfred Kinsey revealed that a whopping 75 per cent of men ejaculate within two minutes of initiating sex, and within a minute or sometimes seconds after penetration. (Perhaps you can thank the adult-film industry for raising your expectations - and hers.)

Of course, that isn't to say you can't learn to master your own domain. You can. In fact, you will. And that goes for those other below-the-belt troubles as well. Whether a case of the trots leaves you perched on the porcelain throne or you're pumping out more gas than a herd of cows, we've uncovered scientific strategies to help you take back control of your body. The bonus: they won't hurt your ego, either.
