Sexual performance anxiety refers to a psychological and physical condition where an individual constantly worries about their performance in bed. This condition affects both men and women. It is much more noticeable in men because it causes them to lose their erection during or prior to sexual intercourse.
Sexual performance anxiety is related to various causes. Most of the time, it goes away on its own once the individual has mustered enough self-confident to indulge in sexual activities. However, more severe cases normally require intensive sessions of sex therapy or counseling. Certain forms of medications have also been known to encourage sexual performance anxiety.
