I’m a 50-year-old man. When I have sex with my partner, I just do it once and then my

manhood refuses to get erect again. What can I do to go for more rounds? I don’t want my

relationship to suffer because of this. Please help.

Dr Eve responds:

Aging brings sexual changes. Just as our bodies age, everything slows down. This means that erections are less easy to get and maintain and that sexual energy and drive gets a

little less too, so you don’t have a problem. Now you have to change your sexual expectations of yourself. Make the one round the best round. Slow all the sexual

play down and spend lots of time caressing, talking and playing with your partner. Penetration is just one part of all this fun.
