It will definitely be embarrassing at first when you’re unable to perform as usual but don’t worry about it, it will get better and especially if you have the support of your partner. Focus more on having a good time instead of performance.
2. Embrace variety
There are so many ways to please a woman other than penetration. Variety is not only about having sex with multiple partners. You can try out different things with just one partner.
Think sex toys, kink, role play etc. Do some research to find new sexual ideas that you can incorporate in your sex life that will be pleasing to both your partner and yourself.
3. Eliminate causes of ED
Seek medical attention to find out what is causing your erectile problems and work on eliminating the cause. If it’s a case of obesity, then lose weight. If it’s a health problem such as diabetes, get treatment.

4. Don’t stress over it
The worry of not being able to perform in itself is a huge limiting factor when it comes to enjoying sex. So don’t stress over it, let it go. Accept that you have a medical condition and don’t let it bother you.
Focus on having a good time and forget why you’re here in the first place. Be in the moment. Allow yourself to enjoy the pleasure being given to you instead of beating yourself up for not having a strong erection.
