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.
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.
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.
