Wouldn't call it so: As one passes through puberty the testosterone surge that triggered many unexpected erections is starting to level off. If you are trying to get erections for whatever reason you can overthink this & stress to the point it becomes less effective. I would take a break for a while & things should re-set at a normal baseline of capability.
