Q: My boyfriend has trouble maintaining erection during sex.

I've been with my boyfriend for over a month now and we both care a lot about each other and are comfortable. The only problem is that for the past 3 months he says he's noticed that he's had trouble maintaining an erection especially during intercourse. I keep telling him it's psychological--he thinks about it way too much and I try to get him to relax. That wouldn't be such a big deal, but he won't let me give him oral stimulation because he's afraid of premature ejaculation. We're both only 22. He's too embarrassed to talk to anyone but me about it. What can I/he do? What could be the problem?

Get on the internet for adult materials like Adam & Eve.  Order penis rings.  Once you or your bf get a good erection, place the smallest ring possible at the base of the penis which will keep the blood from leaving the erection until removed.  Don't leave the ring on for more than 30 minutes. Lifting up on the penis when fully in will let the ring rub the clitoris and give you a mind blowing orgasm. Good luck, Col John.

Wish I had the solution. I'm in my mid 30's and can't shake this problem. I was prescribed the blue pill which works, but it's just a way of covering uo the problem. How is his physical condition? Does he exercise? Eat healthy? Is he over weight or has a big stomach? I've read a number of things online and all these factors contribute to a low testosterone problem.
