I would like to have sex until I die. I am 69 and had no ed issues until I was 62. Even if I can't have sex, I will think about having sex until I die. 200 times a year would be about right. When I was in my 30's, about 400 times a year would be about right,View Thread
I've been married for almost 35 years. We haven't made love for somewhere between 3-5 years ( I lost count). The reason for this is my wife has physical and emotional issues, among them COPD, PTSD and hormone blocker related to breast cancer surgery. She talks fondly of the good old days and can see at some point that are sex life might resume.
I can understand situations where a woman may lose interest in sex; she never liked it, physical changes, an unskilled partner.
The only male perspective I have is my own. Despite ED issues related to age and health, I haven't given up. I think sex is a strong part of a man's nature as long as his partner is willing.
The only reason I can think of a man not wanting to have sex is fear of failure. He shouldn't spend the rest of life worrying about failing and should be talking to a therapist about his issues.View Thread
5 1/2 would be called average. It's her problem and therefore your problem. If she didn't want to have sex frequently with a penis that she claims was the right size she has other issues. Do you feel friction when you make love to her? The first couple of inches are the most important. There are a lot of ways to please a woman; orally manually, toys.
I don't measure myself against a penis chart regarding length and girth, but I am likely on the good side of average, but only average. My wife had lovers with large penises but greatly preferred mine. She would ask for me to almost withdraw and reenter so the stimulation she preferred was in the front of the vagina. Most women find a large penis uncomfortable.
A typical man enjoys frequent sex. The best way to get it is to make the experience as pleasurable as possible for his partner. Every woman responds differently and a man needs her to provide direction to what will get it done rather than guessing. He needs to make her know that he enjoys taking direction to give her pleasure. Not asking is not caring. He should also pay attention to her response to what he does and not get preoccupied with his own pleasure. Making love, allows for feeling things outside solo sex. Something like a back rub or foot massage can provide an unexpected sexual response.View Thread
An average male of his age is going to want to have sex as often as he can with a willing partner. He may be suffering performance anxiety and lack of confidence. If a man feels that he can't be a good lover he may avoid sex and you really haven't pushed the issue.
What attracts him to your relationship is not physical intimacy. If physical intimacy is important to you and you find another boyfriend, make sure your dog is content sleeping in another room.View Thread
I also went through a course of acupuncture. I research everything and heard it wouldn't help. I did .it anyway, because most of the cost was covered under my supplemental insurance. It didn't help. I sort of hold out hope that weight loss and a different diet might help.
Worse thing about it is walking was my preferred exercise. When I finally retire, I'll start exercising in the water.View Thread
I've had it for quite a while; non diabetic peripheral neuropathy. It hasn't progressed but it sucks. If on my feet for more than 10 or 15 minutes, the sponge rubber kicks in. Normal course of treatment is antidepressants. I took one where you keep on increasing the dosage and it never worked. The other antidepressant which is the standard is Neurontin which I won't take because of side effects. I've tried the hot peppers and the herbal rubs and they don't bring any relief.
I cope with it. I take off my shoes at work and socks when I'm home. I put a pillow case with frozen gel packs next two my feet to get the burning sensation to abate.
When my feet start to get spongy, I sit down for a few minutes and they go to just being numb and burning.
A person is better of with diabetic neuropathy because it is treated by treating the diabetes. Non diabetic, doctors say too bad, so sad.View Thread
I've been with my wife for 35 years. For the last 25 years I've been dealing with my wife's PTSD. She's self medicated with alcohol during that time and smoked even though she has COPD. Convincing her not to smoke and drink was a tough sell. This year she was diagnosed with breast cancer and the worry over that and the treatment has made it a tough a year.
She went in for bone density screening and found that she has preosteoperosis. Alcohol keeps your bones from absorbing calcium and as a result she stopped drinking and smoking last Thursday. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she is now motivated enough to keep with it.View Thread
