Having trouble climaxing can ruin a good sexual experience, regardless of your age. It's the equivalent of being allowed to taste your food, but not being able to swallow it. How lousy is that? Of all the vast and varied men health issues, this is one that can really put a crimp on enjoying your sunset years. The good news is, you don't have to be locked into this particularly dissatisfying fate, and there are things you can actually do to help resolve this most troublesome of all men problems.
First, let's understand what causes can contribute to your losing the ability to "finish."
- Medications -- Not all medications will cause you to experience trouble climaxing, but there are some that do just that. Some of the common medicines that can cause this are blood pressure pills, antidepressants, and over the counter pain pills.
- Medical issues -- Diabetes is known to be one of the chief causes because it can do damage to the nerves responsible for the male orgasm. Also, if you've had surgery for an enlarged prostate you might find that your ejaculate is significantly lower, but this doesn't necessarily have an impact on achieving orgasm.
- Stress -- Sometimes, your physical health has nothing to do with your inability to have an orgasm. For many men, stress can play a serious role in the necessary "letting go."
Now that you know what can contribute to a crummy sexual finale, here are some tips that can help you get over that critical hump.
- Make good use of lubricants. This might come as a surprise to you, but the inclusion of lubricant during sex can greatly increase stimulation and usher you into home plate.
- Pay attention to your breathing. If you find yourself gasping for breath during sex, this isn't always a sign that you're enjoying yourself. You could be working too hard, in which case your body may be too wound up to reach orgasm. Breathe deeply and evenly to control this.
- Be comfortable in your own skin. Just because you're not as tight and lean as you were when you were 25 doesn't mean your partner finds you unattractive. Being comfortable with yourself is key to relaxing and enjoying the sexual experience and, ultimately, to achieving orgasm.
- Talk to your partner before (and during) sex. Lack of communication is one of the major sex killers. It could be that all you need is a change in position or rhythm to turn things around for the better. Be open with your partner about what turns you on, and as a result you may discover you've got no trouble after all.
