Dear Anne,

I would recommend that your bf see his medical practitioner or a sex therapist for an assessment. At his age erectile dysfunction can have an any number of possible causes that could be physical, psychological or social in cause and nature.

I would suggest you stop pretending that it does not bother you and speak to him in a supportive manner, reassuring him that erectile problems are very common amongst men and also very treatable.

Not to hurt you, but a reason could be that he lost sexual interest. The embarrassment could be because of guilt

The very first thing he must check out is to go for a check on his prostate, he is in the age group where it start first.His gp can do it.

It appears that he might have a problem with alcohol,period.Hopefully he does not abuse the drinking of alcohol.
There are many things that can affect his erection,alcohol,drugs,overweight,stress,unfit,certain meds etc etc.He might need to see a dr to check out his problem.
