Male sexual problems find out what is causing them and how you can fix them

Male sexual problems are a significant source of mental strain for many men. In a society that teaches men to be sexual beings and that emphasizes how much men should care about and think about sex, men are especially expected to be ready for sexual activity at a moment’s notice. Despite this being a stereotype about men, it’s not true for all men. Unfortunately, it means that some men, and other members of society, perceive sexual interest and prowess to be intrinsically linked to manhood. This link is not fair to the men who are not very interested in sex, or simply less interested than society expects them to be.

Stress And Sex Drive

That being said, medication and treatments for men that experience less interest with sex are often sought out. Part of this may actually be a medical condition called erectile dysfunction, but there’s not necessarily anything medically wrong with you if you are not as interested in sex. Part of this is a natural inclination for men to become less interested in sex as they grow older. Anyway, it’s important to remember that manhood is not defined by sexual interest or sexual prowess.

Being a man is the same as being any kind of adult. It’s about maturity and responsibility. It’s about providing for your family and being a generous and charitable person. Male sexual problems should not hold you back from thinking you are any less of a man. Ironically, just worrying about male sexual problems can even cause them. Anxiety about performance can actually cause erectile dysfunction and lowered performance in bed. In some men, ED can be just as much of a psychological issue as a physical one.

Ejaculation problems

Other sexual problems besides erectile dysfunction are: delayed ejaculation, retrograde ejaculation, and sexual arousal disorder.

  • Delayed ejaculation is when men struggle to reach orgasm despite not experiencing erectile dysfunction and being able to perform in bed normally. This kind of experience can even make a man’s partner feel inadequate if they are upset that they cannot make the man reach climax. This can even cause relationship issues. While it may help to seek medical attention for an issue such as this. It’s probably better to start with simple communication and understanding between the partners. Don’t blame each other, just talk about what is going through your mind.
  • Retrograde ejaculation is caused by ejaculate being sent into the man’s bladder instead of out of the man’s penis. It creates a visual effect of no ejaculation occurring, despite the man achieving and orgasm. This is not actually harmful to the man at all, but it can cause fertility issues since the sperm would not make it’s way into the woman.
  • Sexual arousal disorder is when the man does not experience any sexual arousal. This can also be linked to erectile dsyfunction.

  1. I remained a virgin till marriage because I was socially awkward and in most cases I prefer to avoid people, females especially. I was so poorly informed about sex, all i knew was from watching sex videos and reading mags. It was heartbreaking when on my wedding night, I was so excited that I barely lasted 5 minutes. My wife was terribly disappointed. However, she was supportive and helped me get proper sex ed, counsel and meds and now I’m much better

  2. A friend of mine was brave enough to tell me his problems in bed with his wife. At first I wasn’t sure what to tell him, as I was currently single and didn’t have much experience with sex. But, after using Google, I discovered this was a normal issue, and I knew I couldn’t take this lightly. Not only can this problem affect my friend’s mood and confidence, but it can also affect their marriage. I made sure to talk to him about this.

  3. My husband has suffered from Erectile Dysfunction for the past three years when he suffered from a stroke. This has really affected his self image even more the the symptoms of the stroke. I have been very understanding and encouraged my husband to visit with his primary physician about this problem. The doctor prescribed a low dose of Viagra which has greatly improved his performance in the bedroom. I am not totally sure if this positive effect is a result of the drug or the extra confidence that my husband has when taking the drug. Either way we have sex often and it is very enjoyable for both of us!

  4. Having a small penis (4″ when erect) has been a source of shame and embarrassment for me during my entire adulthood. Most women I’ve been with are polite and say it fits just fine, but a few have been visibly surprised that such a big and muscular man can be so under endowed. Guess it’s just my lot in life, you learn to love to give oral and make her think you’re a king that way!

  5. I heard a story from a coworker about her friend that was having problems in bed with his wife. Apparently they were having issues with sex so I recommended that they should try pills.

  6. I had a male patient today. He complained about having sexual problems. He could not be aroused be his wife and his marriage was suffering. I assured him I could help. I gave him a prescription for a make enhancement pills and sent him home.

  7. I had trouble getting it up. It sucked, so I started taking viagra. It really enhanced my sex life and I started to feel a lot better about myself all together. It was a very positive experience and I relish it to this day.

  8. Many know factors like stress, diet and exercise can effect libido. But what many don’t know or realize with their male partner is that medication can be fault of it too. Being on SSRIs for years has made it an extremely hard-task, and very frustrating, as they sometimes completely kill the drive. It became a viscious cycle, but thankfully after focusing on diet and exercise I’ve been able to “re-train” my self into the flow again.

  9. Sexual difficulties can really affect the quality of a relationship. My husband has always gotten spontaneous erections when HE desired sex, but if I decided to initiate, he remained completely limp. Since he could get hard sometimes, I knew that he wasn’t dealing with impotence so instead of blaming biology, I realized that there was something more complicated going on. I felt so bad about it that I ended up needing to see a psychiatrist because my own mental health was being affected by the mixed messages his male sexual problem caused in our relationship. The fact that this disorder occurred irregularly and only under certain conditions made it even more confusing, and even with research I was unable to find a similar case online. The doctor himself was unable to tell me exactly what was going on!

  10. ok so my wife always like the fact that it always take a while for me to ejaculate but now i’m starting to think something might be wrong with me. When we have sex no matter how hard i tried i would always take a very long time to get there which always seems to please her but after looking it up online i think i might have Delayed Ejaculation which is a serious medical condition. i really don’t know how to bring it up with anyone much less my wife.
