Male Sexuality

It's a cultural stereotype that sexuality comes naturally to men. In fact, many men feel stymied by cultural and family beliefs that stigmatize male sexuality. In many cases, a young man's sexual experiences begin with quick, furtive exploration. He may learn to reach climax quickly during masturbation. Then, when it comes to sexual excitement with a potential lover, his body may react too quickly. This pattern can be very difficult to change, leading to insecurity and fear of underperforming.

The male ego is very much tied to sexuality. Issues of acceptance, performance, attractiveness, and youthfulness really do matter for men just as much as they do for women. When you add to this the stress levels of modern life, things can get tough. Lack of good communication skills between couples and the changing roles of men and women compound the problem. Many people simply don't take the time to develop skills to be great lovers.
