Erectile Dysfunction: practical tips
Sometimes men use masturbation to avoid premature ejaculation, i.e., they come before sex, hoping sex will last longer. Don't do this. Your mojo will be compromised. You can last as long as you want with orgasm control techniques such as stop-start and slow breathing.
Nervousness / performance anxiety
Worrying will get you nowhere. If you're nervous about 'performing' or satisfying your partner, or if its your first time with a new partner, nervousness could cause erectile dysfunction. Let's face it, not being able to get an erection is a serious dent in your pride. If you've had erectile dysfunction before, worrying about it might cause you to get it again. Solution: Stay calm, relaxed, and confident.Stress / physical tiredness
A serious cause of erectile dysfunction. Stress from financial problems, relationships, family and work are bad for erection performance. Stress zaps your physical energy so when you finally get to the bedroom you're ready for nothing but sleep. If this is you then forget about sex. Go to sleep to recharge your batteries. If you still have problems with erectile dysfunction even when you have plenty of time, stress could still be a cause. Don't rush into intercourse. A deep relaxing massage (receiving or giving) followed by lots and lots and lots of foreplay can work wonders for erections. DON'T start thinking about whether you can get an erection or not. Relax. Escape. Forget about work or other worries for now. Just let it come.No direct physical contact with the penis
It seems obvious but there it is: the penis needs constant direct physical contact to stay erect. As soon as your penis loses all contact (with hand / person / bed clothes or anything) you are going to lose the erection sooner or later. Think about this: no man on the planet, no matter how young or horny, can get an erection, stand up and keep the erection absolutely solid for more than say 2 minutes without some kind of physical contact. Try it. Impossible. So, apply this to your normal sex play. If you're kissing, etc, but your penis has no direct contact, when you try to go straight to penetration, it's not gonna work. Get some direct stimulation from hands or body.
Break in contact when putting on a condom
So, Everything is just perfect, you've got a solid erection and you're both ready for some hot sex. Take a condom out, get it out of the wrapper and leave it on your bedside table all ready to go.
