Re: Type 1 Males...and sex
Hello, not sure if you're still checking this as it's been awhile since you posted so I'll be brief, but if you'd like to know more then feel free to ask.
Firstly, the best way to know about any aspect of being diabetic is to carry on talking to your boyfriend.
I'm type one, and a bloke and I can tell you that diabetes doesn't have to effect sex. There have been times when I've hypo'd after sex... but then I've hypo'd after a session in the gym. Any exertion of energy can lead to a hypo, not every time by any means. If your boyfriend has been diabetic for a while then he'll most likely know when his sugars are dipping and know if he has enough to see him through any activity.
As to the mechanics of sex, there is a possibility of issues depending on how well diabetes is controlled. For example, during a hypo an erection is not possible as the body sends blood to where it is most needed. Also, if blood glucose levels are regularly high for long periods of time, it can cause damage which would lead to more permanent erectile dysfunction. As with anything to do with diabetes, it's all about maintaining good control and having good knowledge of how you're affected by the condition.
As I said, the best thing to do is to talk to your fella, work out any issues and then just get to it.
