Thank you for posting your question with XXXXXXX I will do my best to help you.

The male sexual stimulation is predominantly psychological.

If you think about anything negative while involved in sexual activity, there is chance of losing erection. This occurs as the brain sends inhibitory signals due to those negative thoughts, stress, fear and anxiety. It is quite normal that if you lose concentration, you may lose erection.

Hence you should avoid negative thoughts while involved in sexual activity.

Be more involved in foreplay and after putting condom, continue foreplay and after you and your partner are ready, then only insert.

I hope that I have answered your question. If you have any more questions please contact me again anytime.
