What causes a penis to become limp during intercourse but not during oral sex?

He could have ED, he could be nervous, could be used to more friction and a firmer grip from masterbation or from oral, or could be a medication hes taking. There are probably more reasons that I cant think of but im sure more people here will chime in and answer.

Sarah, I never used to go limp, but sometimes as I've gotten older, I notice that there are certain positions that make me lose steam quicker than others. If my wife is giving me head and I'm fully erect, she usually climbs aboard, but I start to lose abit within a min or 2. But then if we switch to missionary, I get harder again. So it might be gravity as much as mental arousal, or age. How old is he?

He is 30. And sometimes he can orgasm when I'm on top or from the back, but more often then not he goes limp in any position. He says it feels good but he just goes limp, I hate it, I'm 25 and I am so horny. But he just doesnt "feel like it"

Viagra works for me! I had the same problem, but no more!
Tell him to ask his doctor for it.
I use the 100 mg. Great stuff!
