Create worry period: Create a “worry period.” choose a set time and place for worrying. It should be the same every day (e.g. In the living room from 5:00 to 5:20 P.M.) and early enough that it won’t make you anxious right before bedtime. During your worry period, you’re allowed to worry about whatever’s on your mind. The rest of the day, however, is a worry-free zone. Postpone your worry to your worry period.

Dr. Kevin Passer
Child Psychiatry 35 years experience
Sex therapy: There are actually folks who specialize in this area and they are called sex therapists. As performance anxiety is quite common, a good sex therapist should be quite well versed at addressing your concerns and issues. I also suggest finding a patient partner. Share your concerns with he or she in an open and honest manner. Most people are more understanding than many might think.
