I can't seem to maintain an erection once I put on a condom. Is it supposed to feel really tight around the base or does that indicate that it's too small? I can have a firm erection and then moment after the condom is on, it goes soft and I can't get hard again for some time.
thanks for the help!
Try one of the larger brands of condoms like Magnums and see if it helps. Also try applying a little water based lubricant to the inside of the condom. Dont use too much as you dont want it to slip off.
misterted, I run into a similar problem but it isnt
the erection itself that goes soft its the head of my penis that shrinks. I pull out and is smaller than normal when fully erect and to prevent myself from going soft I hold the base of my penis and pinch and stroke to force the blood back up. you can also try a **** ring if my technique doesnt work.
Yes the condom is too tight, although nervousness can greatly affect why you lose the erection. I used to use cheap clinic condoms that were too tight and uncomfortable. They were garbage simply the cheapest form of protection (they're free)! I bought condoms and tried them and they're great! They are quite large and contains lubrication and they allow the sensations which those tight condoms don't. I believe that if they're too tight, they cause one to lose their erection. Depending on what size you are, try larger condoms if you think they're neccessary because from what I've experienced, the width being to small caused me to lose my erection and wait a while for it to return and that is not pleasant while you already have the condom on, it kind of ruins the mood!
I think it is condom anxiety, it is just psychological, I also have it, what I do is, my gf gives me oral and then I put on the condom when I am really hard and then she sits on it in cowboy position, then I carry her out of the bed, without taking my penis out and then I lay her on the bed and we have sex in missionary position, my penis keeps hard like that.
