I'm not sure if this is in the right area, but I thought I'd put it here because it doesn't involve me really.
So this male friend of mine and I are very close. He is in a monogamous relationship at the moment that isn't exactly smooth sailing. I'm a little worried about his sex life, which sounds like I'm prying but he's told me these things with hardly any prompting from me, I'm like his sounding board for his thoughts or something lol.
Anyway, he told me recently that he has no trouble orgasming when he's on his own, but during any kind of partnered sex, he has never orgasmed. He's had two sexual partners. The first girl he had sex with he thought it was because he didn't really have any feelings for her, but he has the same problem with his girlfriend now too, regardless of the problems they're having or not having at the time. He thought it was because of the way he was masturbating, but he's 'corrected it' (his words) and nothing has changed.
I've heard of men who have been sexually assaulted, and they sometimes orgasm despite it being a highly traumatic experience. So is this an uncommon problem? It's not something I've heard of before in men, and I do a lot of reading about sexuality.
