What are the different Sexual Problems in Men?

Men experience different sexual problems at some point in their lives. Either you are heterosexual (straight), homosexual (gay), or bisexual, sexual dysfunction or problems can affect your life. Though these problems are more common in aging men, different physical, psychological, or environmental causes can trigger male sexual dysfunction. 

A sexual problem or dysfunction refers to physical or psychological difficulties that prevent a man (and his partner) from experiencing satisfaction from sexual intercourse. These problems can occur during any phase of the sexual response cycle that includes arousal (excitement), desire (libido), orgasm, and resolution.

The National Health and Social-Life Survey (NHSLH) conducted a study to evaluate the prevalence of sexual dysfunction in the U.S. that shows, about 31% of men and 43% of women have reported experiencing some sort of sexual difficulties. Though men hesitate to share their sexual issues, in most cases sexual problems are easily curable

How do sexual Problems affect men?

Though sexual difficulties don’t impact physical health much, such issues can cause mental health issues and disrupt the quality of life greatly. These problems affect men by causing the following effects:

  • Low self-esteem
  • Lack of self-confidence
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Relationship difficulties 
  • Performance anxiety during sex etc.

The major categories of sexual dysfunction in men include:

Erectile dysfunction or ED is the inability to achieve and sustain a penile erection strong enough to perform penetrative sex. This problem is also known as impotence. 

According to the Massachusetts Male Aging Study, the prevalence of erectile problems increases with age. Several studies show that ED affects about 40% of men in their 40s and affects 70% of men in their 70s. Also, the chances of experiencing complete ED increases from 5% (in 40-year-old men) to 15% (in 70-year-old men). 

But according to more recent studies, ED issues are increasing in young men too. According to an article published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, about 26% of men who are less than 40 are ED patients. And about 8% of men who are between 20-29 have reported experiencing difficulty with erections. 

Most men experience erection related issues occasionally. Usually, tiredness, stress, anxiety, depression, nerve disorders, or lifestyle choices like alcohol abuse, lack of exercise, trouble with sleeping can cause ED. Also, side effects of medications for diabetes, kidney disease, blood pressure, etc. or even drug combinations can cause ED. But if this issue becomes frequent then it’s time to seek medical help.

Also, side effects of medications for diabetes, kidney disease, blood pressure, etc. or even drug combinations can cause ED. But if this issue becomes frequent then it’s time to seek medical help. 

Types of erections dysfunction

There are mainly 2 types of ED:

  1. Primary Erectile Dysfunction: If a man has never experienced a satisfactory erection for a prolonged period since his childhood or puberty, then it is called primary ED. Different psychological factors can cause this condition.
  2. Secondary Erectile Dysfunction: If a person used to experience normal erectile functions but later developed erectile difficulty due to physical problems, it is called secondary ED. Usually, physical health conditions and lifestyle choices are responsible for this issue.

2.Premature ejaculation

Premature ejaculation or PE is a sexual issue where ejaculation happens before or within about 1 minute during penetrative sex. This condition is also known as rapid ejaculation, fast orgasm, early ejaculation, premature climax, quick discharge, etc.

About 1 in every 3 men or 30%-70% men in the U.S. experience PE, making it the most common type of male sexual dysfunction. According to the American Urological Association, approximately 30%-40% of men around the globe between the ages of 18-59 suffer from PE issues.

Different biological and psychological factors are responsible for causing early ejaculation in men. Also, relationship issues and performance anxiety play a big role in causing PE. 

Types of premature ejaculation

Early discharge can be categorized into 2 types:

  1. Primary or lifelong: If a man experiences PE every time he has or had penetrative sex, he’s suffering from primary PE. This issue can bother him all his life starting from his very first sexual encounter.
  2. Secondary or acquired: When a man with average ejaculation time suddenly or gradually develops troubles with ejaculation and PE symptoms, it is called secondary or acquired PE.

3.Male orgasmic disorder

Male orgasmic disorder refers to a consistent delay in or absence of orgasm during penetrative sexual intercourse. If a man cannot reach orgasm after 22 minutes of penetrative sex, theoretically he is qualified for the diagnosis of delayed orgasm. This disorder is also known as Anorgasmia, delayed ejaculation, or absent orgasm. In some cases of Anorgasmia, a man can experience orgasm through masturbation or oral sex.

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), approximately 10% of men report facing difficulty with orgasm. But according to a clinical study, about 8% of men are estimated to experience delayed ejaculation. Generally, Anorgasmia is a more common health issue in women than men and it’s especially uncommon in the young population.

Though delayed ejaculation mainly occurs due to psychological factors, certain chronic diseases, side effects of medications, or surgeries can cause this issue in men. 

Types of male orgasmic disorder

There are mainly 4 types of orgasmic disorder:

  1. Primary or lifelong delayed ejaculation: It refers to the condition where a man has never experienced an orgasm since his maturity.
  2. Secondary or acquired delayed ejaculation: It refers to the condition where a man used to have the ability to ejaculate normally but later developed Anorgasmia.
  3. Generalized delayed ejaculation: In this condition, a man is unable to reach orgasm even when he is highly aroused with sufficient sexual stimulation.
  4. Situational delayed ejaculation: In this condition, a man can reach orgasm under specific circumstances like oral sex or masturbation.

4.Inhibited or Hypoactive sexual desire disorder

Inhibited sexual disorder (ISD) or Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) refers to the medical condition of low sexual desire. A man with ISD or HSDD hardly engages in sexual activity and doesn’t respond to his partner’s sexual stimulations. 

Low sex drive is considered to affect around 30% of men at some point in their lives. Different studies and analysis show that man can experience a low sex drive if he is interested in other people rather than his partner. Also, in general cases, men with ISD don’t feel interested in anyone. In extreme cases, men with ISD not only struggle with low sexual desire but also may find sex disturbing. 

The main cause of low sex drive is low testosterone. According to a clinical study, about 4 out of 10 men (over age 45) have low testosterone. Factors like alcoholism, fear of intimacy due to childhood abuse, male menopause, etc. cause low sex drive, Also, prescription drugs and psychological distress can contribute to ISD or HSDD.

Types of hypoactive or inhibited sexual desire

Theoretically, this disorder can be classified into 3 types:

  1. Lifelong (generalized): This indicates that a man never had or has a desire or mood for any sexual stimulation with his partner or alone. 
  2. Acquired (generalized): This indicates that a man had the desire for sex but now he lacks interest in sexual activity.
  3. Acquired (situational): This indicates that a man was previously interested in his partner sexually, now he lacks the sexual desire for that partner. But he is still interested in sexual activity either alone or with someone else.
