    My husband of two years (been together 5 yrs) has just told me he loves wearing my clothes. I was seriously freaked out. I can live with him wearing panties but he likes to wear bras with water balloons and I can’t even look at him. I love my husband but don’t know what to do. Please help.

    Hi Dawn

    I’m currently having trouble maintaining an erection during sex with my partner at the moment everything is going fine and my erection feels really good and halfway through during sex I lose my erection in fact it’s happened twice in a row now.

    I’m also having trouble ejaculating inside my partner I have currently signed up with men’s health and on sildenafil with them but would really like some help and advice

    Many thanks

    Hello Mrs. Michales,
    I’m intrested in learning more about what you do. I’m in a rut with my wife and in my life … I’m not sure of the specifics that landed us or myself in this situation, all I really am sure about is that it’s defiantly taking g it’s toll on our marriage and our physical health.
    I’d like more information about getting help from a professional as yourself, things like the time and cost involved and where these things take place. I’ll be very appreciative for any information you’re eager to lend me.
    As if now, I’m seeking this for myself on behalf of my marriage. I’m sure that if I can, at least, get myself straight, that we could only benifit from it…and maybe even help to encourage a positive sence and atmosphere.
    I’m apprehensive in asking but quite concerned about the future.

  5. Please help as sex to me is a nightmere

    Hello David, this can happen to any man in his life. Most of the time it happens when there is anxiousness involved and it triggers the fight or flight response which then takes the blood away from the penis. The best advice I give to men who go through this is to not focus on the problem because that makes it worse. Take the time to focus on your partner and pleasing them in other ways before intercourse. Also depending on your age, as men get older they need more mental stimulation and direct stimulation to the penis. If you would like more information or to set up an appointment you can e-mail me at

    Hello Mary, this is something that would be helpful if we could talk about in a counseling session, as there are ways to understand it better and figure out how to deal with your feeling surrounding it…
