I failed my first sex experience and now I have erectile dysfunction and lost my libido since 1 year till now all tests show that im good. Why?

I failed my first sex experience and now I have erectile dysfunction and lost my libido since 1 year till now all tests show that im good. Why?

Sex is not pass/fail: We tend to be very secretive about real sex, so you may not hear what we hear. Most 1st experiences are disappointing. The urge is strong enough so most of us try, try and try again until we get better at it. Many never become pleased w/ their performance. I'm so glad your tests were good. That means you'll do fine once you relax and discover how to have fun and enjoy feelings. That's the key. ...Read more
