Yes: Everyone is different condoms impact sensation - for some that's good because of decreased premature ejaculation try experimenting with different types of condoms also try placing a drop of lubricant on the inside of the condom before putting it on -- that may belp.

Loss of erection: Using a condom on a spontaneous occasion with a new or relatively new partner may cause self consciousness or stress which can cause erectile dysfunction.
