Am I sexually normal for my age—18?

Posted , 5 users are following.


So I've tried having sex and losing my virginity three times now

The first time, I was 15 and I couldn't get hard.

The second and third time happened towards the end of last year, when I was still 17, this year I turned 18, and I couldn't get hard.

I am now scared that I might have E.D. and I became not sexually active in fear of not pleasing a woman.

And when I masturbate, I struggle keeping it up.

I'm afraid to go to a doctor because I'm embarrased and insecure

Also, something I have always been insecured of--and hate talking about--is my penis.

I provided a pic of my flaccid penis since I struggle with getting it up.


Is it average for my age?

    If that's your flaccid penis it's WAY above average.

    How often do you get an erection when you wake up in the morning?

    By the look of your PIC. Its not called flaccid, its semi erect. I think your problem is entirely psychological not physical. Its because your age. At this age people can't have ED problem. Go to a distance area GUM clinic if you are embarrassed to see your local GP or local GUM clinic. You will be fine. Don't worry too much.
