sex ed, over 40 edition

I am a 44 year old ciswoman and my partner is a 61 year old cisman. I have never been married and have had many sexual partners but this is my first time encountering this exact thing. It is also my first time being involved with someone who is more than a couple years older than me but I'm not sure if that's important. My question is about whether his lack of an erection during foreplay is a sign of not actually being turned on, even though he seems like he is. [more inside]

What's going on? How can we best enjoy sex?

We've been in a relationship for some time - I am 24 and she is 28 - but we only recently started having sex regularly because we used to live a distance from each other until we (finally!) moved in together. Both of us have physical challenges that seem to be making sex less enjoyable. [more inside]

To those with penile venous leak: have you had luck with ED meds?

Though I'm excited that there's a chance my ED (Erectile Dysfunction)—which was caused by venous leakage which mysteriously and suddenly occurred in my teens—can be controlled with Cialis, I'm scared to go on it due to bad experiences with meds in the past. Could someone who's been on Cialis, Viagra, etc. chime in? Would love to hear what people's experiences on it have been before 'taking the plunge.' [more inside]

nitroglycerin causes vasodilation--why doesn't it cause erection?

Nitroglycerin is used to treat angina by causing vasodilation of the blood vessels around the heart. Flushing is one of the side effects, indicating that vasodilation is not specific to only the heart. Do people use nitro to treat erectile dysfunction? Can erection be a side effect of nitro? Phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5) inhibitors (viagra) cause vasodilation and are not supposed to be used in combination with nitroglycerin for risk of severe drops in blood pressure. This made me wonder how these drugs are specific. Why couldn't nitro be used for the penis in addition to the heart?

Low sex drive and ED with new girlfriend

However, my libido has all but disappeared and we are unable to have sex without great difficulty. I need advice on why this has happened and how I can address it. Thank you. [more inside]

Having a hard time getting erect

I'll try to keep this short and thorough. I'm a 25 year old male, I've been dating my girlfriend for 3 months, and I'm still a virgin. I've never had a ton of sexual experiences in my past (oral), but this one has me a little confused and stressed out. About 4 days ago I was with my girlfriend and we were giving each other oral, (we haven't had vaginal sex yet) I always go down on her first and then she does down on me. Now normally I get incredibly turned on, very easily, and with anything from hugging and cuddling, to kissing and foreplay. It always gives me a very full and hard erection, and in the past I've never had any problem at all about having an orgasm. However on this night while my girlfriend was going down on me, right in the middle I suddenly became soft and completely lost my erection. This has never happened to me before, and in the last 4 days, everything that normally turns me on and gives me that full erection, has barely even given me a "chubby" so to speak. I'm finding it very hard to get turned on, and its making both my girlfriend and I quite upset. [more inside]

Being woken by nighttime painful erections.

Over the past few months I've been waking up several times during the night with an extremely turgid painful erection that won't go away unless I stand up and walk around for a bit, or raise my legs or squeeze my thigh muscles. When this happens, I don't feel sexually aroused and my penis doesn't feel responsive in any way - it seems to be purely a blood-pressure thing of some sort. [more inside]
