What Men Fear of When It Comes to Sexual Intercourse?

Today’s topic may seem irrelevant to an inexperienced eye. The truth is that this topic contains very important knowledge for both men and women.

Since this is a very important subject, related to overall health, this article will fulfill its job and look at the topic from many different angles.

At the end of the article you will know the answers to many frequent and important questions, like – why are men bad in bed?

The Introduction

Okay, what’s the big deal here? Well, the keyword here is “sex,” and that keyword alone is very complex. To some, sex gives relationships meaning. To others, sex is a product of love. The truth is somewhere in the middle.

Sex is a very strong ingredient of a serum called love. In reality, it really works like glue. If it’s good, it can tie people together, if it’s bad, the opposite.

Now, you must understand that sex isn’t the main ingredient of love. I didn’t say that. There is much more to relationships than just sex, but the effects of sex on some relationships can be crucial.

What Sexual Problems Can Men Experience?

The most common problems that circle around men are actually pretty dangerous. They can trigger other health issues; in other words, they can trigger the “domino effect.” These problems can also be the reason why men are bad in bed.

According to a very thorough medical research, those problems are:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Dyspareunia
  • Absent ejaculation
  • Inhibited sexual desire

Erectile Dysfunction

man having sexual dysfunctionED, which is short for erectile dysfunction, is the inability of a penis to maintain an erection that’s good enough for sexual intercourse. From the previously mentioned research, I managed to get a shocking fact – 10% to 15% of men get affected by erectile dysfunction.

It is hard to accurately pinpoint the cause of this frequent male problem for every patient, but there are some well-known factors. According to this medical research, we can divide them into five groups: vascular, neurogenic, endocrine, iatrogenic, structural. Regardless of these five groups, the most common factors are:

  • Injuries
  • Bad blood flow
  • Mental issues
  • Surgery in the genital area
  • Old age

Premature Ejaculation

Although it is clear from the name, let’s dive into this problem a little bit deeper.

So, premature ejaculation is the inability to control the ejaculation while having (or about to have) sexual intercourse. People who suffer from PE either ejaculate shortly after the penetration or, in some severe cases, before penetration.

One of the most effective methods is drug intake. What I mean by “drug intake” is using a specific serotonin reuptake inhibitor antidepressant. 50mg of Sertraline is one of the most popular ones.

Dyspareunia

This problem isn’t very frequent like the other; however, it is very important; therefore, I must mention it. Dyspareunia represents pain in the genital area, before, during or after sexual intercourse.

Absent Ejaculation

Absent ejaculation comes as a side-effect of excessive drug intake. Common causes of this problem are

  • Antidepressants
  • Antipsychotic drugs
  • Prostatectomy

Inhibited Sexual Desire

Low sexual desire (libido) is a celebrity in the world of men. In other words, it is such a vicious killer that most men are afraid of it. Low sexual desire can be caused by many different factors. One of the factors is a low testosterone level.

Testosterone is a male sex hormone that regulates sexual desire, among other important things. The lack of this hormone can leave terrible marks on a man’s sex life.

What Makes Men Bad in Bed?

Okay, now it’s time to bring out the big guns. In this part of the article, you will get the answer to the most frequent questions, such as:

  1. Why is my husband terrible in bed?
  2. Why are fit men bad in bed?
  3. What makes guys bad in bed?

Let’s combine our knowledge from previous paragraphs and get our answers.

Okay, let’s begin.

What are Men’s Weaknesses in Bed? Why are Some Men Bad in Bed?

  1. Common sexual problems

We have talked about these problems in the previous paragraphs. If an individual is diagnosed with one of those problems (in some severe cases a patient can be diagnosed with more than one) he is definitely in a mental slump and that problem is his kryptonite.

That exact problem that he is diagnosed with can, and usually is the main reason why your man is bad in bed. He might not tell you this because he is too shy to admit it. Why is he shy, you may ask.

Well, simply because he is afraid of your opinion because it matters to him. He doesn’t want you to think of him as of a freak. Once you make him open himself, you should encourage him and help him find a solution. That is the best path to healing.

  1. Experience

shy couple under the blanketSome men are bad in bed just because of a lack of experience. With the lack of experience comes the lack of imagination and freedom to express his true self. Those things are crucial for good sex, and if your sex is bad, maybe your man isn’t experienced enough. Maybe he is still afraid of the unknown.

However, you shouldn’t worry about this. All that it takes is practice.

  1. Lack of trust

I have mentioned fear a few times. Besides fear, there is another important component that kills the thrill of sexual intercourse. That would be a lack of trust.

If your partner isn’t comfortable with you, it would be hard for him to get it going. Sex isn’t quite as easy for men, despite how much they talk about it.

There is a mental factor that plays a key role there. That’s exactly what this is.

To answer the third question, I will call upon research.

This research is talking about the effects exercise has on sperm count and testosterone. By exercising, you can naturally boost your testosterone, and we already know how important testosterone is for sex.

With that being said, it might just be that the reason for the bad performance of your man in bed is something previously mentioned above.

The Final Verdict

That would be it for this important topic. I hope you now understand why some men perform badly in bed. As you can see, there is much more to it than simple fear. The health components that are “in the game” are terrifying, so without jumping to conclusions too fast, be sure to make your man open up to you.

That will not only improve your relationship but potentially make him more comfortable and better in bed. All in all, we can all come to the conclusion that men can improve in this field. Whether it is health related or experience related, men can, with some work, definitely get back on track.
