Do you ever get anxious during sex? How does it affect you?

Deflation. I constantly find it hard to stop thinking about all the issues at work.

yes

Definitely more with a new partner. It always feels like the first month or so is really stressful as I’m trying to relax into being calm with them.

Yes

Yes

I get worried I won’t get erect. I then worry whet my partner will think and it makes the situation worse

With most new partners, except if there’s a sense of complete relaxation and trust, which is rare at that stage…

Yes, it affects me in the way that I am unable to keep an erection

Yes I do feel anxious sometimes during sex with my partner, and when am afraid of finishing too early before satisfying mi wife. It affects me in a big way that confidence I would have started with shuts off.

Yes

Yes. As soon as we start engaging in kissing or even simply hugging, my mind is already projected at the potential failure coming.

Yes, I feel like I have an expectation to perform

I am hard during foreplay. Then when it comes down to penetration i overthink, and wonder if I’m hard enough, or if i will stay hard.

Yes, I feel like I’m losing my erection and then of course, I do

I’m with you brief-plum-squid: it feels like an out-of-body experience at times!

I’m with you brief-plum-squid: it sometimes feels like an out of body experience, which is REALLY not helpful!

All the time and more so with a new girl, once I get comfortable it gets better but I’m so concerned with getting it up that night by the time Dinner is over and it’s bed time over overthought everything to such a level that I can’t get into the mood and enjoy it myself. I really want her to be satisfied by me and the thought of not achieving that really deflates me.

Yes I had my first erection issues when I was with my first girlfriend and it keeps coming back to haunt me, I seem to be able to over ride viagra too. It’s very depressing.

I constantly am thinking about if I’m enjoying myself are they enjoying themselves and then usually turn to doubts about getting hard

I have started to get anxious. Most of the time I can get hard enough for penetration but will lose it quickly after. I lose it during sex because I am constantly worrying about keeping it up all the time. Performance anxiety, stress, fear is always innmy head. Seems as though almost anything can distract me now.
