Saboteurs of Sex Life

by Nick Swanson

While we’d all like for all of our sexual encounters to go smoothly, the fact is that sometimes it just doesn’t work out that way. Overcoming the different ‘sex saboteurs’ is important, but while things like toys, planning, and male enhancement products can all help, nothing will really work if you don’t take the time to prepare. Learning about the main saboteurs of sex life is the first step in defeating them outright. Here are the ten big ones you need to be aware of.

Saboteurs of Sex Life
  1. Erectile Dysfunction – Sometimes the fact is that a guy just can’t get it up or keep it up. Erectile dysfunction is often just a temporary, one time thing. But in other instances it’s an ongoing problem that needs to be addressed.
  2. Premature Ejaculation – Just as frustrating as erectile dysfunction is premature ejaculation. The most common sexual disorder among men under 50, this problem could be ongoing or occasional, but it’s always frustrating.
  3. Overactive Bladder – The last thing you want to think about during sex is your bladder, but overactive bladder may cause an orgasm to release urine. While going to the bathroom before you start is a good idea, sometimes this can’t be helped.
  4. Fatigue – If you’re too tired, odds are that you’re not going to perform. It takes rest in order to really perform properly, so be sure to get the rest you need.
  5. Self Esteem – If you don’t feel great about yourself, odds are you’re going to sabotage your own sexual encounter. Self esteem issues can cause you to experience a variety of issues that will all ruin your sexual encounters.
  6. Kids – Simply put, kids can sabotage sex without even trying. No matter their age or what they’re doing, plenty of parents find that kids interrupt their encounters quickly.
  7. Menopause – When you’re older, menopause can quickly and easily ruin a sexual encounter. Menopause is something that causes numerous issues, and it can certainly have a big impact on your sexual activity.
  8. Alcohol – While a few drinks are great for breaking the ice and kick-starting your libido, in the end it actually ruins things for you, especially if you drink too much. It can prevent erections and ruin the encounter entirely.
  9. Performance Anxiety – Being worried about the way you’ll perform in bed can actually trigger erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and numerous other issues.
  10. Stress – Stress can cause a loss of libido, ED, and much more. It’s probably sexual enemy number one.
