Per the above delayed ejaculation. PseudoSkull (talk) 06:42, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep. Well-known medical condition. Has a Wikipedia entry. SemperBlotto (talk) 06:44, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep. Medical entity. Has a DSM-5 and ICD-10 code, and has specific diagnosis criteria. Wyang (talk) 09:16, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
User:Wyang, User:SemperBlotto, but you guys aren't voting keep I don't think for the sense of premature + ejaculation, i.e. not "You cummed too fast for me to handle." but rather "You have a medical condition that causes you to ejaculate very quickly during sexual acts." I think what you two are suggesting is that there should be another definition for the condition that the current entry doesn't have? Same for delayed ejaculation.

I don't think it's a separate sense. This is the name of a medical entity, and colloquial uses are based on that medical entity. Wyang (talk) 23:05, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
Well shouldn't the fact that it is a "medical entity" at least be explained somewhere in the entry, to clarify to readers? PseudoSkull (talk) 02:03, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
And just clarify to me why this "medical entity" is different from, say, bite to the neck or ejaculation inside the anus? I know they're not "DSM-5" or "ICD-10", but I'm almost positive there are some terms that fall under both of these categories that are highly SOP and would not be welcome here on Wiktionary. PseudoSkull (talk) 02:07, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
Because an ejaculation that's premature but doesn't meet the diagnostic criteria isn't the same thing as the medical condition that can be confirmed present by showing it does meet them. I'm sure the world is full of men who ejaculate too soon because they're inconsiderate jerks, or for other non-medical reasons. Also, I'm sure that someone blurting out some word or phrase before they're supposed to could be described as a premature ejaculation, too, but that's not the same thing.

  • Keep. Kolmiel (talk) 13:59, 29 July 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep per the above. bd2412 T 03:13, 31 July 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep. I've updated the definition, it's a bit lengthy but I don't think I can make it much shorter without hurting the definition. W3ird N3rd (talk) 01:25, 8 August 2017 (UTC)
