Sexual Performance Anxiety and ED: What You Need to Know

This performance mindset leads many men to be self-conscious, self-critical, worried, tense and anxious while being sexual. This in turns often results in bringing about the very problem they were worrying about in the first place: erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation or difficultly experiencing orgasm. These sexual problems can be caused by various medical conditions, or may even result from—or be made worse by—various medications you may taking. If you experience these problems frequently while being sexual with someone else, but seldom experience them while being sexual by yourself, then it is unlikely that a medical problem or medication is the principle cause. But if you are unsure, consult with your physician first for an assessment.
It can be useful to talk to someone about their experiences of feeling ready for sex — and having sex for the first time — because they may have experienced the same feelings as you. Another important factor to consider is sexual health and safe sex practices. If you talk to your general practitioner GP , they can give you information on how to stay sexually healthy and make your first time more enjoyable. This information can help keep you safe and protected from STIs or an unintended pregnancy.
