Question: Ejaculation Problem... PLEASE HELP!

 JohnnyBravo - Sun Sep 11, 2005 3:22 am

Hi, I have never had a problem getting or sustaining an errection, however I never ejaculate during sex (with or without condom) or oral stimulation. I can ejaculate through masterbation but only if I do it myself. I've been with enough different girls to realize that this is a problem with me and not them. I am only 20 years old and this is starting to concern me. I'm wondering if it's a psycological problem maybe. However, I'm also a smoker if that has any bearing on the matter. I find even the thinest condoms greatly reduce the feelings accosiated with intercourse (to the point where it's un-pleasurable) and am wondering; could this simply be a sensitivity problem or is it likely something more serious? Also, is there any kind of sensitizing cream I could try? Any help with this matter would be most welcome. Thanks

Hello JohnnyBravo,

it would be advisable to cut or better yet QUIT smoking. Toxins you get from smoking can affect a lot of organs in your body and ejaculation/erection is not spared from this. However, as what you have mentioned in your post, we cannot rule out the possibility of an underlying psychiatric illness. It would be best if you consult your physician about this matter.
