Expert Q & A Answers About male sexual dysfunction

My boyfriend’s lack of interest in sex is ruining our relationship. What can we do?

My boyfriend and I have been together for two years and generally have a good relationship. But for the last year, he’s not interested in sex. I didn’t know this happened to men and I feel discouraged and annoyed. We’re both in our early twenties. We used to be very sexually active but it seems as though sex is the last thing on his mind these days. I know he’s stressed, but sometimes he won’t even touch me for fear of turning me on. What do you suggest?

My boyfriend is on blood pressure medication and can’t get it up. How do I talk to him about it?

I am a 56-year-old post-menopausal woman with a healthy interest in sex. I have begun a serious relationship with a 66-year-old man, who is on medication for blood pressure and SSRI medication. He knows that the blood pressure med affects his sex life, but he acts as if there’s no problem. He hates the idea of Viagra and doesn’t want to talk about it. I love him and we talk about spending our lives together...but I want to be able to have sex. How can I get through to him?
