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 answers: 

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.
