Why Does My Dick Go Limp Right Before Penetration?

I am 19 yrs old. I've had sex before but for some reason over the last year or so I have been unable to have sex because every time I try, my penis goes limp right as I try to insert it. I have no idea why this is happening...please help!


Hi there,

Let me preface my answer by saying that I am not a doctor.

There could be a number of reasons for this including psychological ones. Are you able to maintain an erection during masturbation? If this only occurs right before sexual intercourse the reason may be psychological rather than medical.

You may want to visit our erectile dysfunction site, as there is a lot of information there to help.

I would contact your doctor just in case there is a medical reason for this happening.

Thank you for your question.
