Quick release of sperms or semen is called Premature Ejaculation.

Occasional premature ejaculation issue is very common and there is nothing to worry about this condition. But, if the quick release of sperm keeps happening every time you masturbate or have sex, then you need to get the problem fixed. In order to treat premature ejaculation problem, you and your doctor should understand what causes the quick release of sperm.
Types of premature ejaculation
There are two types of premature ejaculation. Lifelong (primary) and acquired (secondary) premature ejaculation.
Lifelong premature ejaculation is considered to be the case if you have been ejaculating in less than a minute after sexual intercourse of even before actual penetration and if this has been happening ever since you started masturbating.
Acquired premature ejaculation is considered if you never had quick ejaculation problem before but started seeing the issue recently or been facing it continuously for the past several times.
As said, occasionally ejaculating too soon isn’t an issue at all. This can happen when you have a longer gap from previous ejaculation or when you are too excited with your partner.
