Problem maintaining an erection during intercourse
avatar
An_246780 posted:
I recently began into a relationship and since then we have begun becoming physically intimate. However during foreplay and other acts I can maintain an erection and sometimes even get close to orgasm, but when we actually try to have sex and I enter her vagina I almost immediately lose the erection and am unable to continue. I've tried Prelox but no luck with that. Any suggestions on a solution for this problem?

It may be a function of contact and stimulation, so suggest look at different positions. It could also be from stress, fatigue, guilt, anxiety, fear or actually anything that distracts your brain can kill erections - yes even during sex. Look at distractors and try to eliminate these.
