How long does an average erection last?
For about the last year or so, I've noticed that my erection doesn't last long at all without intercourse. I'm only 22, so this doesn't seem to be normal. Like if I want to do foreplay with my girl, if I mess around for longer than about 5 minutes, then my erection starts to soften, and find it hard to get it back hard, or sometimes not able to get one back at all. I don't ever have a problem getting one, just keeping one. Now if we start to have intercourse before I lose it, everything is fine. My girl is starting to wonder if I think she's attractive sometimes since this has happen a few times. I'm kind of embarrassed to tell her my problem, so I haven't talked to her about it yet, but plan on it. The main concern here is, how long does an average erection occur for and if this isn't normal what I'm experiencing, should I go to a doctor about this. Also, if anybody asks, some things about me: I'm in really good shape, I lift weights and do some cardio weekly, I eat pretty healthy, I don't smoke, I don't do drugs, I might drink maybe once a month, no STDs, under a little stress now, but when I first noticed this problem, I haven't been under any stress. Thanks for any help.
