| | Re: Trouble Sustaining An Erection
I am a healthy 51 year old heterosexual male. I have always loved having sex and have never had problems. Recently, I have found myself single again and have had the pleasure of a number of women's company, only to find that I also had problems sustaining an erection.
At first I thought age, but honestly, I am in the best shape of my life at 51! So, I ruled that out. I thought about viagra, but I had no reason to believe that physiologically I had changed so much so soon.
What I noticed was this. While married, we did not have sex that often, I viewed some porn and masturbated occasionally. When we did have sex I could keep it up for hours. (I also had really good control).
One thing I noticed since being single was that I was having sex much more often, masturbating more and watching more porn. While the sex was awesome and often, I was getting over stimulated. I think Bengie is right, skip the "self service" and porn. I did and it made a huge (pun intended)difference. Not only "can" porn and masturbating over stimulate you, it can also set very unhealthy expectations for you about your partner (her body, her sexual proclivities, her performance, etc.) but also about yourself (Am I big enough, will I satisfy her, etc.).
I think it's all in my head, but since this is the 21st century, I have no problem looking into the Viagra if that is what will make the experience for both partners more enjoyable... Have fun!
