My girlfriend who is more sexually experienced than me says that you can wear out a guys penis if you have to much sex, like you can make him hurt down there sort of how a girl feels after sex. Is this true? I think she must be joking but I am not sure. I have heard guys can get tired but wearing out his penis.

Umm ... I don't think you can really wear it out, per se. I could be wrong tho.

Having too much of anything can be bad tho. Maybe the muscles in your groin area might be feeling a little over worked, but that really has little to do w/ your penis. Also, if you're not using enough lube, it can cause friction, which does actually hurt. But that can happen after only having sex once.

You are using condoms and lube, right?

It's a common myth, for the most part. While a guy's penis may become sore if he has sex or masturbates very frequently or for extended periods of time, you can't "wear it out" permanantly -- it'll be perfectly usable again in the future.

Occasionally, if there's too much stimulation over a short period of time, the skin may become a little irritated and sore, or it may become temporarily painful for him to have an erection. It's just like any other body part -- if you suddenly exercise it a lot, it might be a little sore for a day or two.

Also, hon, if you're hurting right after sex, you might want to try to figure out why -- sex shouldn't hurt, but if you're going at it too vigorously or not using enough lube, you can get sore pretty easily.

You're not likely to wear out a penis any more than you'd wear out your finger.

No you can't wear it out permanmently, but if you ejaculate too many times in a short period, your balls can get sore. Generally teens have a greater resilency at this than do older guys, but even for teens there is a limit. If for example you tried to ejaculate ten times over the course of an hour, your balls would be pretty sore, even if you used enough lube that your penis was not chaffed. Usually this isn't a problem, because if your penis and balls are "too tired" they usually go on strike well before you get to that point.
