My dickhead is very big. I can't stretch my skin fully outward. I need some tips. Will I be able to have healthy sex?
Practice stretching: If the foreskin comes back partly, one can practice stretching it for 30 seconds, daily in the shower. If the foreskin won't come back at all, then a primary care doctor or a urologist can take a look to see if any special cream is needed to help the skin be more stretchable. If a tight foreskin pulls back completely for the first time, pull it forward after a few seconds and practice again later. ...Read more
I am 45 yesrs old. Male. Aftrer having a healthy sex life all these years, now I find myself hard to get erection hard enough. Is this due to age?
You have ED:
This is the classic presentation of erectile dysfunction (ed). Early loss of erection with difficulty or inability to penetrate and maintain penetration suggests an issue with blood flow.

Yes: One doesn't exclude other. We just need to make sure that you're otherwise healthy enough.

If otherwise healthy including relationship, yet libido not quite there, consider check for low T (but that would be close to last on my list). Med side effe ...Read more
Recently I have not felt a healthy sex drive and I've had trouble with sexual performance. I'm in good shape and exercise everyday. What can I do?
I hope you get lots: I'm looking forward to you getting other replies - but let me start. Have you thought of considering it as a natural phase - like the seasons or the moon. To never ebb and flow is a bit unnatural. At your age, I'd almost expect your sexual expression to be maturing from youthful volatility into a deeper complexity. Try some non-judgmental curiosity to expand definitions of sex. Best! ...Read more

Absolutely: Being born without ovaries is not a reason to not have normal sexual function. The estrogen ovaries make can be replaced with pills or patches when the girl is old enough to start puberty. What is "healthy" for an individual is up to that individual. Most girls without ovaries have normal vaginas and uteruses. So standard heterosexual intercourse and even child bearing with donated eggs possible. ...Read more
How often should a married couple in their early 40s have sex per week to be considered as having a healthy sex drive?
Not written in stone: Amount of "sex drive" is not the only thing affecting how often a couple has sex. Both may have a healthy sex drive, yet relationship conflict may make them not desire sex with each other. Frequency of sexual intimacy (and satisfaction with this) varies widely. One study suggested that 40 to 49 olds have intercourse an average of 69 times a year. For more info: http://tinyurl. Com/mxnfhc3. ...Read more

Problems abound: As a male with a listed age of 18, I can see some obvious problems with your question. In my state, if you attempt or have sex with a 14-15 yo you can spend a good deal of time in prison, consensual or not. Each state has its "age of consent" based on knowledge that the brain remains behind the body in maturity. I suppose you have heard the term "jailbait" ...Read more

Condoms are useless if the lesions are on the scrotum and not the penis. Use sexual safety! ...Read more

Perhaps you can be more specific about what you are really concerned about. ...Read more
