Understanding Male Sexual Problems -- Symptoms

What Are the Symptoms of Sexual Problems in Men?

The symptoms of sexual problems in men include:

  • Lack of sexual desire, sexual fantasies, or interest in sexual contact
  • Inability to have or maintain any erection
  • Inability to have or maintain an erection sufficient for sexual functioning
  • Inability to reach an orgasm despite adequate sexual stimulation and signs of arousal
  • Ability to achieve orgasm only after an unusually lengthy period of stimulation
  • Ability to achieve orgasm only during masturbation or during oral sex
  • Ability to achieve orgasm only in situations that are considered bizarre or taboo, such as fetishes

  • Lack of ejaculation
  • Persistent erection unassociated with sexual desire
  • Bloody ejaculation (This can be frightening but is usually not serious.)
