How can environmental factors contribute to sexual problems in men?

ANSWER

You may find it difficult to enjoy sex if there's no safe, private place to relax and become sexual. Or fatigue because of an overly busy work and personal life robs you of sexual energy. Parents may find it difficult to find the time to be sexually intimate because of the demands/presence of their children.

Fear of getting HIV (human immunodeficiency virus, which can lead to AIDS), the difficulties of striving for "safer sex," and the psychological effects of discrimination are just a few of the factors that can cause anxieties in men who have sex with men.
