While we’d all love for sex to be like it is in the movies, it often isn’t. Things don’t go as smoothly as they might have you believe, and there are some common sex problems you could encounter.

It can suck when they happen, but what sucks more is when you can’t figure out a way around it. This is why I’ve put together this guide, telling you about the common sex problems and how you can deal with them.

Premature ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is the most common of all of the ejaculation problems. It is when the man reaches orgasm and ejaculations too soon, although just what defines “too soon” isn’t clear. Some suggest it is within the first minute, while others think a little longer.

Either way, it is something that happens to a lot of people. There are so many different reasons for it, too, and identifying the cause can help you find the solution. Things like stress, depression, relationship problems, and anxiety can all cause it.

So how do you deal with it? Masturbating an hour or two before sex can help. You can try using thicker condoms to reduce the sensations you feel during sex. You can also take a break during sex to bring yourself back from the edge. Talk to your partner and find a solution that works for you both.

Erectile dysfunction

One of the other common sex problems you might encounter is erectile dysfunction. It is particularly common among those over the aged of 40, but it can happen at any time. It can come and go, but if it is a persistent problem you should speak to your doctor.

Like premature ejaculation, it can be caused by a number of factors. Tiredness, stress, anxiety, and drinking too much could make it happen to you. It can also be caused by a physical factor, such as changes in hormones or as a side effect of medication.

Your best bet, if this is a long-term problem you are facing, is to speak to your doctor. They can help you come up with the best solution. You might also find things like cock rings are useful. They help to slow the flow of blood from the penis, which can help to keep it harder for longer.

Mismatched sex drives

Sometimes you might find that your sex drive does not match your partner’s. It might be that they desire sex more than you or that you want it more than they do. It can result in one partner being left feeling neglected and undesirable, while the other feels like they are being constantly pestered for sex.

There are certain things you can do to resolve this. The first is to sit down and talk about it. Talking to one another is the best thing you can do with any and all common sex problems, as it gives you the chance to share it with your partner. They can then help you through it.

Many also find that setting a sex schedule is a good idea. You’ll know exactly when to expect sex, which can heighten your arousal in anticipation of the event. You can ensure that you are both free of distraction and it can help you to meet in the middle.

No interest in sex

Having a mismatched libido isn’t the same as having no interest at all in sex. Some people find that they just don’t want to fuck. They love their partner and have a strong romantic attachment to them, but have absolutely no desire to have sex with them.

This is normal. Asexuality is described as a lack of sexual attraction to others. It is different to not having a similar libido to your partner, as you simply do not want sex.

Some asexuals find that they still have sex, though not very regularly. However, the majority don’t want it, and that is okay. The important thing is to talk to your partner about it to help them understand what it is like for you.

Other common sex problems

It isn’t rocket science, but talking to our partner about sex can be difficult. Got some tips you’d like to share? You can leave a comment in the box below.
