Erection During Foreplay and Kissing but When Ready to Have Intercourse Erection Is Lost

I have a strong erection during masturbation. And when I'm with a girl I have a erection when I'm kissing and doing foreplay. But when the time comes to have sexual intercourse my erection is quickly lost. This has been happening with girls I've meet at parties and going out. When I was with my ex-girlfriend this never happen.


It could be anxiety or there could be a physical reason so I always say - check it out if it persists. You sound relatively young - I assume - so I will make the assumption it is simply performance anxiety but to be sure - a doctor visit can confirm.
