    Oddly enough, I've been experiencing performance anxiety myself. I'm guessing it's due to being in a LTR and dealing with a new "buddy" I recently befriended. I'm would really like to give Cialis a try myself. I will admit that I haven't yet because I'm a bit embarrassed to bring it up to my Dr. I know that's stupid, but is truth. I don't know if I can go :(

    I mean it is uncomfortable but think about it this way...

    Would you rather be a little uncomfortable asking your doctor about an ED pill

    OR

    Miss out on more sex because your performance anxiety?


    It wasn't even that bad asking the doctor, and I had to explain to him that I was a 24 year old virgin that had performance anxiety. He gave me a crap ton of free samples and a prescription.

    LOL

    @shy - I know it's ridiculous. I have more anxiety with the Dr. than with the situation itself. Can't explain it.

    Ahhh. Well in my case all I had to do was think about the possibility of missing out on ANOTHER opportunity to lose my virginity and that was enough to prompt me to go to the doctors.

    Maybe writing it down on a piece of paper and giving it to the doctor instead of asking him out loud would work lol? That might be easier. I'm sure the doctor has seen all kinds of awkward "ED talk" openings so it will be nothing new to him.

    Trust me, your doctor has heard and seen MUCH worse things. I would bet a decent amount of their visits are about the ED topic every week.

    During a period of particular stress and change in my life I experienced some performance failure. When it lasted a little too long I made an appointment with a doctor. Now I never go to doctors and hadn't seen one in over 20 years. I even told the doctor that i it wasn't for this issue he wouldn't have been seeing me then either. He suggested Cialis. I was reluctant because I don't like taking any pills or medications but, I decided to give it a try and he gave me a sample pack. I was skeptical about their effectiveness particularly since my issue was psycological and not physical. I needn't have been. They worked fantasically! I had no side effects and performed like my normal self. I would suggest that you don't delay any further and make an appointment to see your doctor. You won't regret it.

    Don't be so hard on yourself! Sorry pun NOT intended unless it really had you laughing and then of course I plained it that way!!!

    Look taking something to help you out is NOT a bad thing despite what society has to say about it. It is no different that taking something for diabetes. I'm probably the last one would EVER think suffered from, and to some extent still do, from horrible depression. I saw my doctor explained what was going on and for three years I took all sorts of meds to help me. And now I don't take or need anything...the pills, meds, dope, whatever you want to call it...gave me the boost to get over the hurdle and restore faith and confidence in myself. Dude do yourself a HUGE favor and see the doctor, get AND TAKE whatever it is they give you and trust me in a few months after seeing that huge monster grow and satisfy someone lucky enough to have it you probably won't need it anymore! No go to the doctor. And that will be 35$ co-pay at the front desk and I'll see you in three months.

    @sirramm -that was funny.

    Well it seems like Cialis is wonderful. So as soon as I work up the nerve to ask my doc about it, I'll be looking forward to getting past this little set back. I hate taking pills, and realize this is a short term thing. I just have to get past the awkwardness of getting physical with a stranger, aknd dealing with the doc.

    Thanks for the feedback and encouragement gang! I'm glad I can feel comfortable here to discuss. :)

    Order the generic brand of cialis online. It's cheaper and it's the same drugs in the pill. Also it means you won't have to go ask the doc.

    I actually thought about that. But it's been mentioned they aren't reliable.
    Plus I have no idea where online I can find a reputible place to order. I went online to Cialis to get a sample, but of course they send you a coupon and you have to go to your dr. LOL

    Thanks for the responses.

    If you are an otherwise healthy individual under the age of 50 who does not smoke, ED pills such as you mention are not an appropriate solution for your purposes. I hate to be the magnesium fanboy of the night, but try some if not for the simple relaxation properties it has. Mg is amazing for countering anxiety. More so than a lot of anti-anxiety meds. Most people are deficient in it, as well.

    Stress depletes mg in the body and inturn can cause anxiety, fear, depression, etc. People who have even remotely stressful lifestyles should be supplementing with mg so long as they have a functioning liver.

    I had a similar issue and doctor was really sympathetic. Since then, ended LTR and the ED went away along with the old BF. Guess I wasn't that into him after all.
