Abstract

As part of my PhD research project, I was interested in what causes
premature ejaculation. This case study presents analyses on possible
causal associations between premature ejaculation and anxiety, as well
as sexual distress and depression. The statistical method, structural
equation modeling, is introduced and applied, as is the concept of
latent variables. The results showed no long-term associations between
the study variables, and possible interpretations of this result are
presented. Pros and cons of using a previously collected data set are
discussed.
