Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Low Male Libido



My husband is a 36 year old male who has a low sex drive. We have been married for 3 and a half years and he very rarely initiates sex (usually after I have nagged him about it). He is very affectionate and loving, yet that does not seem to translate into having sex. His work requires him to travel a lot, so he is often only home at weekends, which doesn`t help. But even when he has been home for a few weeks, we seem to only have sex once I have initiated it. When we do, he seems to lose his erection very quickly and I find I have to spend all my attention on maintaining it! The other aspect that I find strange is that he has never masturbated. Is that possible? He said that as a boy he tried it but it "didn`t work", so he has never masturbated since and doesn`t feel any particular need to do so. If I stimulate him by hand, he has no problems in having an orgasm. He hasn`t got diabetes and isn`t overweight, although he has high cholesterol. He does not experience work related stress. Please help, as it worries me greatly.
