Fear of performance, can lead to lack of sexual performance. As men age, along with stress, life, relationships, marriage, children, a man may have times in his life where his desire is stronger or not as strong. There are also occasions when a man can just suddenly become flaccid or it may not be as strong as it used to be. All of this is normal, but with some men it creates a problem if viewed as a problem. I have gotten so many emergency calls in my private practice about sudden male performance problems, that a man is panicked about, but is completely natural. A few common asked questions are, I suddenly became flacid, nothing came out, my climax is not as strong, I am not able to release. All of these things can happen for a man once in a while and it is normal, the real problem can begin when it does "normally happen" and a man freaks outs causing stress and anxiety over the situation.
This is pertaining to losing an erection, and this can be brought by anxiety. What happens is a man becomes too anxious the blood that is suppose to go to his penis now goes to other parts of the body, (know as fight or flight). Also known as "amygdala hijack" in which our emotional memory, lodged in the limbic center of our brain, rules our reactions without the benefit of logic or reason...which causes our bodies to go into a "fight or flight" response'. If a man can break the cycle of anxiety then he can eliminate the amygdala hijack.
