Anxiety over solo masturbation

I have anxiety over my ability to get and maintain an erection. When I’m with my girlfriend, I am eventually able to get hard and stay hard because she is patient with me. However, when I masturbate solo I seem to get nervous that I will not get an erection but can still cum without an erection The high cause me shame and anxiety.

Hey! I’ve been having the same issues recently. It’s especially frustrating because a few months ago I was having healthy erections and suddenly my solo time fills me with anxiety and I have a hard time masturbating solo. When I’m with my partner there isn’t as much as an issue but I can’t seem to do it solo unless I have porn. Any progress made on your end? I hear that the sensate exercise helps with this. I have yet to try it.

Hey just thought I’d check in. After doing the program i can say that solo sensate really helped with this issue for me after a few weeks. I can now get and maintain an erection solo, it’s all about getting used to touching yourself without the pressure of getting hard. Eventually the erections come on their own
