ED at 25
My new BF has a bit of a problem. He is 25 and can' t keep his erection. I like sex alot but we can only manage 1 session and then maybe if i am lucky after a hour and a half he can manage another 7 mins but it never lasts. I like him soooo mush he is such a nice guy but I keep going home frustrated. he says its never happened to him before and I am starting to think its me and maybe i should stop demanding sex and wait for him to initiate. I dont know what to do! I have such a high sex drive if we spend the night together i end up in the bathroom with my vibrator while he sleeps. I really want to help him while helping myself.

Men can develop erection problems at any age and at any time in their lives. Erection problems can be caused by medical problems, emotional and psychological challenges, due to social challenges and due to cultural and spiritual factors.

It is possible that your bf is struggling to adjust to the new relationship with a woman who is clearly in touch with her sexuality. Maybe his previous girlfriend (s) were not as confident and assertive in their sexuality as you are.

You may need to learn to communicate about your sexual needs and anxieties. If the problem persists I would suggest seeing a sex therapist in person.
