English translation:retrograde ejaculation / premature ejaculation
Explanation:
"ante moeniam" francamente non l'ho mai sentito, ma penso che si riferisca alla condizione detta anche "eiaculatio ante portas", cioè prima della penetrazione.

premature ejaculation
An imprecise term that usually indicates ejaculation occurring very shortly after the onset of sexual excitement, or ejaculation occurring before copulation or before the partner's orgasm.
This disorder is usually accompanied by feelings of guilt or relationship difficulties.

retrograde ejaculation
Ejaculation in which the seminal fluid is discharged into the bladder rather than through the urethra.
Retrograde ejaculation can occur as a consequence of some psychotropic drugs or radical prostatectomy.
[TABER ONLINE]

premature ejaculation,
ejaculation consistently occurring either prior to, upon, or immediately after penetration and before it is desired, taking into account factors such as age, novelty of the specific situation, and recent frequency of the sexual act. Used officially [DSM-IV], it denotes also significant resulting distress or interpersonal difficulty.

agree  Marie-Hélène Hayles: I've never heard of "ante moeniam" either - and there's not a single hit on google for it (nor is it in my medical dictionary). I've no reason to believe Gilberto would be wrong on this, but you might be safer just leaving it in Latin.

agree  bistefano: "ante moenia" (without final -m) means lit. "in front of the walls", in the context means "ejaculate at the very beginning of the penetration, before entry"
