I'm in a long term committed relationship with a previously great and fulfilling sex life. 3 or 4 months ago we attempted to have morning sex and to my complete shock I was not hard when I was about to penetrate. I panicked and could not get hard. This led to several failed episodes in which both of us were quite disappointed and or upset. After several weeks of worrying about my condition I saw a doctor and got a sample of Levitra. Amazingly it worked and I thought I would never have to worry about this again. The negative thoughts slowly disappeared out of my head although they still lingered until a few weeks ago...
We were about to have sex for the 2nd time that night when I couldn't get it in. Flashbacks occurred and I went right back to square one. Several failed instances later I'm growing more frustrated and she is losing her sexual desire. Our talks seem to make me feel better but when the moment comes I still have the anxiety. Since our sexual encounters are becoming much less frequent I'm putting more and more pressure on myself.
What can I do?
Ps I am 100% sure it's a mental issue. I wake up every morning hard and have spontaneous erections.View Thread
