Dealing with performance anxiety?

Sometimes a new relationship can bring anxiety – even the bedroom kind. People don’t like to talk about it because it is embarrassing and awkward. You want to believe that you both can’t keep your hands off each other and because it’s brand new – everything will be all good. Well, not always.

Whether it is stress related, alcohol-induced, or bad timing, performance anxiety can happen to anyone. What do you do when it strikes?

Do you ignore it and wait for it to go away? Do you talk about it while it is happening – (uhh not happening?) or wait till another time to have a discussion?

What do men prefer? Would it bother you to talk about it with your partner?

Happy New Year MIA!

One thing I’d ask in the new year as it relates to the blog, is to that conversation stay geared to the topic. Although this becomes a sounding board for many other issues and items, it only seems considerate of the moderator to at least make an attempt on the topic. It will also encourage others to join in as well as hopefully boost disengaged oldies to re-engage. As the conversation steer away from the topic and becomes of a more personal nature, are we able to take personal issues offline for futher discussion?

Additionally, if you are properous in your relationship(s), there may be others that need or are seeking advice and feedback and insight from others. Let’s allow them the opportunity please.

Happy New Year Kids!

Foxy thinks Performance Anxiety may be why that “good catch” is still single. But if you are willing to work through pre-mature problems maybe that is a testament to your commitment.

Happy New Year ATL and all. Nice opening.

Performance issues, and this is just from my perspective, is not something I have found to happen to all, as if it can strike ‘anyone’ without warning all of sudden. From my experience there are ways to work with, and through this one, and most certainly hope for those who experience it. That said, I also must say it is an absolute offline conversation to help work through.

Why even bother having sex given the sheer enormity of the universe
