I'm just wondering how normal this problem is or why it happens.

I tend to produce natural lubrication fairly easily (a long kiss will about do it), but after a bit, my body won't produce any more. I don't know if this is due to nervousness, discomfort, or some problem in my head rather than with my glands (generally this is the point when he tries to finger me if we do get carried away).

That is very normal and common. Some women produce a lot of lubrication, others very little. And everyone varies within themselves according to where they are in their menstrual cycle and with feeling aroused.

Producing alot of secretion doesn't necessarily mean you're aroused and being dry doesn't mean you're not aroused or that you're nervous/uncomfortable. If you feel nervous during sex, unrelated to your discharge, that is something to think about.

Almost everyone can benefit and get extra pleasure from adding additional lube during sex. It certainly doesn't mean that your body is deficient in some way.
