Author Topic: erection trouble

Icon 1 posted      Profile for Nailo     Send New Private Message       Edit/Delete Post boyfriend and I have tried intercourse three times, but we have the same problems. I know, three times is nothing, but hopefully someone can help this stop. My boyfriend has no trouble getting an erection (or keeping one) while we have sex. Except for intercouse; when we try that, he just loses it, pretty quickly at that. He says it hurts a little, and it may be because of that. Why does it hurt him? We don't have STDs. He gets frustrated with himself, I tell him not to worry though, I try to tell him it's normal...he still looks really worried when he tries entering me. Am I right in thinking he has trouble keeping his erection because of being so worried?

That sounds about right. It's very likely that your boyfriend suffers from performance anxiety. This is vicious cycle. The more trouble you have, the more you worry about it, the more trouble you continue to have. Try to help your bf relax and not get too anxious about sex.
