I'm pretty easily aroused, and when I'm on a date where we're cuddling and making out a lot of the time, I'm aroused the entire time, which ends up either in (ahem)vasocongestion, if we don't have sex, or not lasting particularly long, if we do. I just got out of a long-term relationship with a woman who preferred no foreplay and our lovemaking sessions were relatively short, so this wasn't much of an issue.
I get that this condition is vastly preferable to the opposite, but now that I'm meeting new women, I'd like to make out all night and not be worried about the negative effects.
