I’ve had several prostate surgeries and hernia repairs. During the last hernia repair, the right testicle needed to be removed. Now my erections are inconsistent – sometimes they’re fine, and sometimes I’ll only last a minute. And when I have sex, I have a burning sensation in my groin area on the right side. I am 50 years old and too young to give up on sex. What can I do?
My wife and I are in our 20s and we’ve been married for 9 weeks. She was the first person I ever had sex with, and we had great sex up until a couple weeks ago. I will be in the mood, and get an erection. We start having sex, she gets on top...and then all of a sudden, I lose my erection. When it happened once, I started worrying about it happening all the time. I know it’s psychological, not physical...are there some techniques we can try?

My sweetie takes a medication for high blood pressure. Now he can’t get an erection or feel desire. If he is able to get an erection, it only lasts 10 minutes. It's very frustrating for me…I wear sexy lingerie and try other things, but it doesn’t help. Is anything we can do?

I can’t hold an erection with a condom on. What do you suggest?
I’ve been depressed for about four years, and I’ve been smoking marijuana to help me feel better. Since then, I’ve been having some problems with erectile dysfunction. Now I don't feel pleasure in sex and I don't get hard at all. I quit smoking marijuana about nine months ago, but still can't make my wife happy.
