    Hi all,

    Although i'm more of a lurker-kind-of-member, i'd really like to ventilate a few of my frustrations here on this board with you about the seemingly complex relationship i have with my dick.

    At 7.9 inches in length and 5.2 in girth i know that i statistically have a penis that is above average. The whopping 2 partners i've had the pleasure to share the bed with have both made countless very positive remarks about it. Nonetheless i still feel very inadequate and small. I'm so conscious about the size of my penis that it's in the back of my mind all day long. I'm so obsessed with it that if my girlfriend makes a remark about a random topic that has only the word ''penis'' in it, i can feel down all day long. Can you imagine what i feel like when she blurts out something about a former bed partner...

    Needless to say, these thoughts also affect my erection qualities. I do have rock hard erections when masturbating, and i also have nightly erections. I don't smoke, eat very healthy and work out 4 times a week. So it's nothing physiological i guess.
    With sex it's a different world. I am so anxious what somebody thinks when seeing or touching my penis that i shrivel up. When i do get hard i mostly can't get to a full erection unless i help myself with it. When fucking for a few minutes my dick gradually loses it's hardness to a 60% erection, at this point i have to help myself again to regain a full erection. This cycle ends when i cum.

    At 26 this is so frustrating the hell out of me. Why can't i be blessed with a penis that is even remotely aligned to what i sexually feel/desire. I have been diagnosed with failure anxiety and have had treatment in the past for a depression.

    Are there any members that can relate to this or maybe have glorious insights how to battle this?

    A more important question for me is , why can't you be blessed with attitudes about your penis and yourself that are aligned to the size of your penis?

    I totally sympathise but it seems to me that your "failure anxiety" and "depression" are best treated by getting some counselling and/or psychotherapy.

    Surprisingly this is not as unusual as you might think. At some point in the past something happened to trigger this response. It could go clear back to your childhood and you may have zero memory of what it was.

    The other thing is that many common medications purchased over the counter can cause ED. There are a number of antihistamines and allergy medications that can have this side-effect, and many anti-depressants can have it as well. There is one anti-depressant that has the opposite effect and can actually cause priapism.

    Often, cialis or viagra can help you. The one that works by the way is the one that works for you. Levitra and Viagra have the same method of operation so if viagra does not work odds are pretty good that levitra will not work either.

    You need to discuss this with your MD and look very carefully for this effect from any medication you are taking or any medication you may have taken recently.

    Good luck with this problem. ED even if minor is no fun at all. It is almost like it seems by design to occur at the worst possible times. I have been on injectables for it for years and though they work unlike anything else on the planet the inconvenience is beyond the comprehension of most.

    I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure / high cholesterol and been prescribed blood pressure tablets - 1st lot caused me ankle swelling and general body heat - with little effect on blood pressure - but I also noticed the 3 or 4 erections / week I used to wake up with literally vanished. Switched to another bp tablet & statins at same time - bp control ok - but penis more flaccid than ever & passed a blood clot - which urologist checked out - nothing sinister found. Now on 3rd type of bp tablet ( I have stopped statins for now) - this type opens up arteries - some semblance of a waking erection returning - but not exactly useful ! Joys of old age (66) and medication ! My GP (female) is not into prescribing the likes of viagra - preferring to 'cure' the bp side effect by the 'right one
