Sexual Performance Anxiety

What does it mean if I can’t get an erection before sex?

There are endless reasons why this might happen even including a long week at work! Exhaustion, stress, and excitement are all reasons why some men are not able to “get it up”.

It’s so important to discuss this matter openly with your partner. Sharing your thoughts and feelings with one another may even improve the situation.

Losing an erection does not indicate a physical problem or measurement of how much you are attracted to your partner. On the contrary, it is indicative of over-excitement and desire to please her!


Erectile dysfunction from an emotional source is more common at an early age and during intercourse. Men will usually report good erections in foreplay and/or masturbation.

Here’s how to do it:

One way to treat erectile dysfunction is through medication. You must consult with your medical doctor to learn if the medications for erectile dysfunction are right for you. This type of medication belongs to a group of drugs called PDE5 blockers (an enzyme found in the penis) that includes Sildenafil (Viagra, Tarim), Vardenafil (Levitra) and Tadalafil (Cialis).

Professor Heruti Sexence in house M.D sexologist explains that the medications are easy to take and have high responsiveness due to their effectiveness and the low side effects. They are designed for men who experience a decrease in erection quality or the ability to maintain an erection throughout the duration of sexual activities. They are perfectly safe to use, with the exception of combining with nitrate group drugs, or in cases of unbalanced heart disease.
