Am I suffering from performance anxiety?
Q: I am a 26 years old male and getting married in December 2008. My problem is that whenever I masturbate I get good erection. Last year I had sex with a girl but at that time failed to get an erection and this same thing happened twice last year. Is it a performance pressure or is there something seriously wrong with me? Secondly, if I masturbate after a week’s gap, then the amount of ejaculation is less as compared to when I masturbate after 2 or 3 days. What is the problem with me?
A:Most likely to be performance pressure, but could be other situational factors. There does not seem to be anything wrong with the masturbatory erection. This means that the mechanism is probably intact. Stop obsessing with your ejaculate volume and concentrate on your work. Variations in ejaculate volume are normal. For any further diagnoses, you’ll have to undergo a proper history taking and a clinical examination.
