I can't seem to keep my husband aroused and hard during foreplay and sex. What am I doing wrong?

Our Answer:
You're probably not doing anything wrong!

Most men do not need any help in staying aroused...when arousal cannot be maintained, often there are medical or emotional issues that need attention. Erectile dysfunction is an issue that needs clarification from your doctor--there may be many causes.

The very first step would be to have a heart-to-heart with your husband and see if there is anything in your relationship that is causing stress or emotional pain. Are there areas of shame or guilt that are unresolved and that might affect sex between you? If you conclude that there is nothing like that, then make your doctor’s appointment!
