Among other things, low libido and/or difficulty maintaining erections. Do you mean impotency in the sense of a low sperm count - or erectile dysfunction? They are not one and the same.

Impotency (and ED) have a number of causes - things as common as diabetes, high blood pressure, restricted blood flow from clogged arteries, lack of sleep, stress, etc., can have an adverse effect. A urologist can identify the cause(s) of a man's ED.

I've problems maintaining erections while masturbating..... but the erections are just fine when i'm with my partner.... or sometimes when i get erotic thoughts.

But, i've been smoking heavily frm last 1.5 yr.... so do i have impotency risks ?

Smoking causes the pluging of blood vessles to the penis which is needed to have an erection. In time, you will become unable to have an erection if you keep smoking. If you can get and keep an erection while in your partner until you orgasm, you are physically fine for now.

If your mastrubation technique is causing discomfort or otherwise not working well, then you should consider doing it differently or just limit yourself to sex with your girlfriend.

For the record, Shawn never stated his orientation... I've noticed that it's best not to make assumptions on these boards, as the users all have greatly varied sexual orientations and Scarleteen works hard to show us all that all orientations are good and equal [Smile] No offense intended...
