Our expert says:
Erectile problems may occur for a number of possible reasons, the most problematic of all could be a health issue. If all is well on the physical front, it is likely that the difficulty is explained by a psychological block - e.g. fear of sexual failure/poor performance (e.g. losing erection, ejaculating too quickly, partner is not orgasmic or has pain during sex); anger at partner. Psychological factors like this essentially block the normal working of the sexual response and can be addressed through couple work with an experienced professional. The fact that you have been unable to keep an erection does not mean that you are gay. My advice would be to consult a medical practitioner and discuss your concerns. You could be referred to health professional with experience in this area alternatively you could contact the SASHA (South African Sexual Health Association) helpline Tel -0860 100 262 for referral. .
