My boyfriend has an insensitive penis which he has had for the last 20 years. At present he has to masturbate to release his semen. He has asked me if I can help him to overcome this problem, but as I do not know the answer wondered whether you have any tips or suggestions that may help overcome this situation. Thank you

Hi there,

Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX

The sensitivity and insensitivity of the penis ,are dealt with the mind and its excitability to sexual feelings ,unless otherwise he had any external defect (any neurological defects).

The erection is caused by free flow of blood inside the blood vessels of penis during excitation .

In order to provide an fruitful experience ,you have to understand the sexual need of your boyfriend.

Sexual gratification differs from person to person,that may mislead their partner ,whether he is sensitive or try to know what part of you attract him the most.

Role play is an wonderful technique, use it before having sexual relationship.

Try to wear dresses ,which are attractive to him,

Try spending a lot of time ,with him.That is the best way to know his needs.

Have yourself prepared to know your partner before sexual relationship, have wonderful experience.

Take care and let me know if you have future questions.

Thank you for your response. Whilst I agree with your comments, the fact this problem has been with him for 20 years through other girlfriends and even a wife, in my view, means it is more serious. Besides role play which we indulge in, are there any aids, creams you could recommend that may help. I'm willing to try anything to help him. Thank you.

Thanks for writing back,

Yes of course,there are creams like vega h(viagra )which help to increase the size of penis,by increasing the blood flow to the shaft. Using the cream during the act of intercourse ,helps him to achieve erection ,with increased sensation. The side effects associated with the tablets are always less with the cream formations.
Try to have a word with psychologist about sex XXXXXXX therapy ,which involves counselling of both of you and relieving the unnecessary fears and misconceptions. Knowing the exact defect in the partner and get treated accordingly.

Penile reconstructive surgeries are the last line of managements ,if he still experience the problem,which help him to regain his sensitization.

Take care ,let me know the improvements in follow up queries.

Wish you good health.
