Can't easily get hard during sex
I can't easily get an erection during sex and some times i can't get an erection at all,even when i do get an erection i easily lose it(within 40 seconds) even during penetration.I can easily get erected and during masterbation(although i don't imagine or see normal porn to get hard i have to see kinky porn which is unrealistic in real life like bdsm or gangbang),also i have to mention that the erection i get during masterbation is not that strong like i used to get in my teens and if i don't stop using my hand during masterbation i lose my erection within 40 seconds. Some information about myself: I am 22 years old,i play sports and hit the gym regularly,i don't have any history of any disease whatsoever.i recently got my hormones and blood test done,every single thing seems to be fine. Some things i think might have caused the problem: 1 drug abuse:i am a occasional weed smoker,have been smoking 5 joints a month for the last 2 months,i am a chainsmoker,i have been smoking 10 times a day for the last 1.5 year 2.excessive masterbation:I masterbate 2 times a day regularly 3.watching kinky porn might have caused me to loose interest in normal sex cause whenever i masterbate i think about or see those kinky unrealistic porn
