The Menarini Group is an Italian pharmaceutical company. It was founded in Naples, Italy, in 1886. Its headquarters is in Florence and has three divisions: Menarini Ricerche, Menarini Biotech and Menarini Diagnostics. It is committed to the search for pharmacological solutions for such therapeutic areas as cardiovascular diseases, oncology, pain/inflammation, asthma and anti-infectives. Menarini's research activities are carried out through Menarini Ricerche, which deals with all R&D activities, from the creation of new projects up to the drug registration.

Menarini was recently introduced in the Philippines in a form of an advocacy that focuses on promoting awareness on premature ejaculation among Filipino couples. 

What is Premature Ejaculation?Premature ejaculation is a type of sexual dysfunction, so your physician will be the best person to recommend clinically proven treatments that help you control ejaculation. Being unable to control ejaculation can lead to a decrease in quality of life and sexual satisfaction for couples. PE is frustrating, and can lower self-confidence and disrupt relationships and intimacy. 

Menarini, which is armed with the knowledge that 20% of relationships and marriages break down because of premature ejaculation, the sexual dysfunction suffered by 1 out of 3 men, the corporation aspires to inspire and encourage men to take action against this disorder.

The media and celebrity couples got the chance to talk about what they know about the topic, and offer insights, observations.  Celebrity couples like Anthony Pangilinan and Maricel-Laxa Pangilinan, Paolo Abrera and wife Suzi Entrata, Regine Tolentino and husband Lander Vera-Perez shared their real life stories about the said topic. The lively exchange catalyzed an open discussion of the condition. Experts were there providing guidance and wisdom: Dr. Margie Holmes, noted and popular author and psychologist specializing in sex therapy, as well as urologist and men’s health expert Dr. Dennis Serrano. 

Dr. Dennis Serrano explains the condition: Premature ejaculation (PE) occurs when a man is unable to control or delay ejaculation on his own wish after vaginal penetration, resulting in short latency time and decreased sexual satisfaction, as well as personal distress and interpersonal difficulty. Premature ejaculation (PE) is the most common sexual dysfunction in men, even higher than Erectile Dysfunction.

Dr. Margie Holmes stressed that the issue centers more on lack of control and should be measured not just by time but more on the ability to satisfy one’s partner.

Premature ejaculation is not just a physiological problem affecting men, it is an issue that affects relationships between partners, between husbands and wives. Stress, dissatisfaction, insecurity - the problem of PE affects many, and sadly behind closed doors, many choose to brush it away, when in fact, they can get help. This is one of the objectives of this event and like most things, awareness leads to understanding, understanding will lead to acceptance. And hopefully with acceptance (instead of denial) people can seek help, specifically from their doctors.

Menarini is determined to bring to the forefront of our consciousness the issue of PE --- primarily for Filipino couples. The company had set up a website that can help guide a man --- and his partner, in determining if he indeed suffers from this condition. The website helps a sufferer find the doctor for him, so that he can get treatment for the condition that hurts him, his partner and their relationship:
