    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
