My husband and are have always had a very active sex life...until recently. A month or two ago my husband started having problems with keeping his erection. He gets excited, get erect, we have great oral sex and then move onto sex, he will get halfway through and then just lose his erection. He says it's not me, and we have had many talks (we are pretty open with each other), we have brought in toys, movies, different positions, just about everything...short of bringing in another person. I'm not going to say that we don't have stress, but I wouldn't say it was anymore than the average couple with two young children. I just find it odd that this is happening as he is only 25 years old, (I'm 28). I've tried oral when his erection begins to fade but nothing helps. This doesn't happen all the time, sometimes all things are a go and there are a few times that we will go for hours and he tells me he just can't orgasm. So 1/3 of the time he loses his erection, 1/3 of the time everything is great and 1/3 of the time he can't orgasm but keeps his erection. We are not drug users, don't drink to excess, (a few beers or a cocktail with friends once or twice a month), we talk openly and honestly with each other, and he is in good health (his doctors words) I could stand to lose a few pounds but what woman doesn't feel that way after two children. At times I feel like it's me because I know that I don't look the same way as I did when he met me, although he assures me that's not it, when I am naked he can't keep his hands off me. Please someone help...View Thread
Thank you, this makes a lot of sense, he keeps telling me that he is just worries about ending "too soon". and I keep telling him that that is not an issue for me. I just want our sex life back but I know it's going to be a long road we have to walk together. I know it's not porn, as we are very open about fantasy and role play.View Thread
