For many of our members, they are ready and raring to go, but for some of our members, it may have been a while since they last had sex. For these individuals they may find that they are suffering from performance anxiety. Performance anxiety, what is that I hear you ask. Well, allow me to explain.

What is sexual performance anxiety?

Sexual performance anxiety is where you feel nervous, worried, stressed or otherwise anxious about having sex. Many of us experience these feels at some point in our lives, perhaps it is not to do with our time in the bedroom, but we have felt these feels about something. For some people, the thought of sex or the act of going to have sex is what triggers these feelings. If you are finding that you are being triggered by sex, the you may have performance anxiety.

What are the symptoms of sexual performance anxiety?

Many people get nervous, but for most nervous is just excitement without the breath. For people with sexual performance anxiety however they experience more. Symptoms include:

  • Difficulty getting hard or being turned on
  • A reduction in the desire to have sex
  • Tension forming and staying the body and the muscles
  • Heart rate increasing beyond what is normal from being excited
  • In some cases, it can lead to panic attacks
  • Hesitation or an unwillingness to have sex (where they would otherwise do so)
  • In very extreme cases, it can stop a man from being able to gain an erection

What are the causes of sexual performance anxiety?

Sexual performance anxiety can be caused by all sorts of things, but ironically it can also be caused by the very things that the symptoms of sexual performance anxiety result in. Foe example, for a man they may be worried or anxious about being able to gain and maintain an erection for a period of time. This can in turn cause sexual performance anxiety which then inhibits that man getting an erection. It can be quite a conundrum!

So that is what sexual performance anxiety is. In a future article I will deal with how to overcome sexual performance anxiety.
