    How can you increase sexual sensitivity?
    November 30, 2008

    I'm 20 years old, and just getting into sex. I have hardly any sensitivity in my penis, can barely feel anything. It takes me up to an hour to reach orgasm, which is generally more painful and frustrating than enjoyable. I wasn't always like that though, I remember as a teenager I was sensitive, and could feel pleasure just by pressure and touch. Is there a way to increase sensitivity? Like a cream or something like that?

    I would actually get checked out to find out if there is some explanation for the reduced sensitivity - just to make sure.  the doctor after examining you may have some specific suggestions - I'd probably see a urologist for this one.  I'd also ask about a testosterone level to make sure that your inability to achieve orgasm easily is again, not due to a physical issue.
