Refractory Period: This is normal. The "refractory period" is the time between climax and obtaining another erection. This interval gradually increases with age and is quite variable between individuals. A 17 year-old may have a refractory period of 10 minutes (or even zero), while a 70-year old man may take several days to be able to have another erection.
