What causes difficulty in ejaculation?

I'm 58 and I had a circumcision done about three months ago. Today my desire to have sex with my wife is very high; I have no problems with having erections but for some reason I stiill have some numbness and I can't ejaculate because I can't completely feel the warmth inside my wife's vagina.

No need to worry, there was much research done regarding your complaints. Proved no relationship between circumcision and erectile dysfunction.

People feel erectile dysfunction, low libido or Premature ejaculation for a few days to weeks, it's mostly physiological because of loss of skin all of a sudden. You will always be aware of your penis for a few days.

Other cause for Erectile dysfunction
1.     Decrease sensation in your penis
2.     Recently you had masturbated
3.     Stress
4.     Depression
5.     Fear of failure
6.     Low self-esteem (Chronic masturbation)
7.     Homosexuality
8.     Religious constrains
9.     Long term illness
10.     Negative attitude towards your partner
11.     Hormonal issue
12.     Long term drug usage.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My 52 year old b/f has not been able to ejaculate recently. He tells me it s his problem, not mine... I still feel inadequate though. I know he masturbates frequently and I know he has a woman he has phone sex with. Could his problem be too much masturbation or perhaps he s trying to keep two women satisfied? Could he have prostrate problems? He does get hard but doesn t always stay hard. He does ejaculate but only 1 out of 3 times.

My wife would rather have several sexual encounters a day but would prefer 5 to 15 minutes...I however cannot cum in such a short period of time. Usually we have sex until we are both exuasted and I still dont ejaculate. I have been avoiding sex with her because of this...we have been married for a year and a half and havent had sex 10 times...she takes it personally if I dont cum. I am on blood pressure pills and psych meds but this has been a problem of mine for years

The next day I noticed these lumps under the skin pretty much under and around the top half of my foreskin. They are more noticable while I'm erect and are more aggitating during that time. The feeling if I can describe is like cartilage.
