Male Problems

Sexual Difficulties for the male

It is important to consult with a doctor or other medical advisor when experiencing sexual problems of a physical nature. Each symptom carries a numerical indicator between '1' and '5' (where '1' is lowest) of the likelihood of the cause being a physical problem.

When the problem is psychological in nature, then it is almost certain that one of our psychosexual specialists will be able to help you completely alleviate the problem. (The term 'Psychosexual' here simply means 'sexual matters related to the mind'.)

  • Erectile Dysfunction: An inability to achieve an erect penis and/or to sustain it for sufficient time for satisfactory sexual intercourse. (4)
  • Premature Ejaculation: Ejaculation occurs too quickly after penetration, sometimes with greatly diminished physical sensation (1)
  • Withheld Ejaculation: Ejaculation is possible but there is a tendency to hold on - even though there may be no real knowledge as to why this situation exists (1)
  • Retarded Ejaculation: No matter how long intercourse lasts for, there is an inability to 'let go'; sometimes this affects masturbation as well, sometimes 'solo sex' causes no problem (2)
  • Penetration Anxiety: Attempts at penetration create anxiety, often resulting in the loss of an erection. (2)
  • Ejaculatory Pain: Anything between a dull ache and a sharp stabbing pain, this can occur during or just after ejaculation. (4)
  • Dry Ejaculation: This is sometimes caused by a phenomenon called 'retrograde ejaculation' (4)
  • Lack of drive: A complete absence or partial lack of drive or wish for sexual activity (3)
  • Fetish: A sexual fascination with an object or concept not directly associated with sexual intercourse (1)
  • Pelvic Steal: Penetration fails, even though there is no anxiety. When penetration can be accomplished with the female on top, this is physical condition requiring medical treatment (5)
  • Priapism: An erection fails to 'go down' and is involuntarily sustained for many hours (5)
  • Peyronie's Disease: A curvature of the erect penis (5)
