Do you ever get anxious during sex? How does it affect you? (Part 2)

Yes very. From the time I know it is going to happen, thinking about my partner showing up and nothing happening. It’s like I’m trying to prove that something won’t happen before anything has the chance to happen. It’s affecting my whole being.

Yes, I immediately lose confidence and my erection when I start to think about being anxious or anything other than sex.

Yes, it creates performance anxiety

Yes I do. I start thinking before sex that I wouldn’t get hard. So I indirectly stop myself from being in the moment.

I go soft.

Starts overthinking

Yes I do.

I get normal erection during foreplay, but when there is time to penetration I go into my head way too much.

I do, it just makes me feel nervous and I feel like I won’t be able to satisfy the girl.

I never had this problem. I am experiencing ED since 2 days

I get anxious all the time, to the point where I’ve stopped having sex. I’m 36 years old and this problem has made me feel like I’m missing out on some wild experiences, and I’ve just accepted it now, I’ve broken off potential relationships due to this issue, which makes it worse,and I’m afraid I’ll never actually be happy. I’m constantly thinking about it which makes matters worse and I’ve stopped intercourse with partners every time they’ve tried to take my jeans off :pensive:

I ve been having this problem since very long time. But usually overcome it on the second or third date. But lately been having the problem with my steady gf. Don’t have an instinctive erection,have to masturbate and lose it during sex…even with ed pills.

I started getting performance anxiety a couple of years ago, but the last 1yr it has got to the point where i cannot get an erection fully, & its the same when i masturbate.
Ive been with my partner for 15yrs & married 4yrs ago, we have 2 kids & prior to a few years ago we had a good sex life, i love my wife & this issue is having a major impact on the marriage

In my first times i could never make it go up or get hard i guess its because I watched too mich porn or masturbated almost on a daily basis

Yes, I do. It disappoints my partner, which makes me feel alone and sad and like a failure. It is a vicious circle, because then I’m even more anxious the next time.

Sometimes! Just about whether I will stay hard

I’ve been married for almost 40 years so no I don’t get to anxious. I just have a hard time to get erection and maintain one. Pretty sure it is age thing

Yes, I think the thought of disappointing my partner is the worst for me. She has told me that she hasn’t had a vaginal orgasm since we’ve been together so that adds pressure that makes me not last as long

I do, started a couple of years ago during a long term relationship, then I started to put off having sex with my partner. It got to the point we were having sex about 3-4 times a year, my problem got worse. I wish I started to tackle it earlier

Yes, sometimes I do feel very anxious but because I’m so focused on trying to get an erection that I’m zoned out, and most of the time I can’t get the erection because I’m too focused on having it. Whenever I’m not thinking of it, I get erections easily. Also if I do have an erection, then I struggle with premature ejaculation. It’s very very frustrating because I have a long term relationship that is going down by this problem. It wasn’t like this a couple months back, it was the best sex, but now it’s horrible
