GUYS are under pressure to perform between the sheets but these common sexual issues can mess with your mojo.
Sex isn’t all fun and games, it can also be stressful and bedroom issues can make you feel very self-conscious.
From penis problems to a waning sex drive, nearly a third of men experience some kind of difficulty when getting down and dirty.
Here are the three most common sexual problems for lads
1. Premature ejaculation
Premature ejaculation is when the man ejaculates before or very shortly after penetration.
Blowing your load too early is a common problem that affected 30% of lads last year alone, while 10% frequently suffer from it.
It’s a major cause of concern for men because they want to prolong pleasure in the sack for both themselves and their partner
If you do finish before you’d like, you’re certainly not alone. A recent study revealed that as many as one in three men say their romantic encounters end sooner than they’d expect or want.
A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine revealed that women wish romps would last for 23 minutes.
But the average man only last 3 minutes and 45 seconds in bed, according to Spreadsheets, an app that tracks users’ sex lives
2. Erectile dysfunction
If you have trouble getting it up, you could be suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED).
The surprisingly common condition, which actually affects half of all men between the ages of 40 and 70, is when a guy can’t get or maintain a hard enough erection for penetrative sex.
It can affect anyone, either as a one-off or reoccurring problem.
Many men come up with reasons to avoid getting down and dirty because the pressure to perform is too stressful, with guys often saying they’re too tired, not in the mood or have downed too much booze.
The problem, which can be psychological or physical, can also be linked with fatigue, stress, anxiety or depression.
Sometimes it’s a symptom of health conditions related to your blood vessels and heart, like diabetes, high cholesterol or high blood pressure.
3. Lack of libido
A loss of sexual desire affects a shocking amount of men over the age of 40.
According to some studies, up to a 25% of lads experience bedroom blues depending on their age and other factors.
If you suddenly notice a drastic drop in sex drive, it may be due to unnatural hormone changes and could be a symptom of low testosterone (also called hypogonadism).
