What Causes Sexual Performance Anxiety?


Have you ever felt anxious before sex? If so, you’re not alone. It’s pretty common for men of all ages to feel anxious before and during sexual activity.

What causes sexual performance anxiety? A number of things, including:

  • Body image issues (you are concerned about your weight or penis size).
  • You are concerned you may not satisfy your partner.
  • You’re worried about premature ejaculation.
  • Relationship issues are taking a toll.
  • Daily stress.

When you feel anxious for any of these reasons, your body releases powerful stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. These hormones actually constrict blood vessels, which in turn reduces blood flow to parts of your body, such as your penis. This makes it hard to get and keep an erection, and that doesn’t help your performance anxiety.

Performance anxiety can worsen over time and have a significant negative effect on an individual’s sex life. In many cases, men lose all interest in sex. It sounds hard to believe, but many men actually throw in the towel and give up on the idea of having sex.

Studies have shown that performance anxiety is one of main contributors of erectile dysfunction. If you’re suffering from ED, try to find ways to destress so you can reduce the level of anxiety hormones in your body.

Some excellent ways to destress are exercise, meditation, listening to music or just going for a hike and being around nature. It’s okay, guys can enjoy nature, too. It does our mind, heart and spirit a lot of good to be around the natural world.

Here are some other ways you can treat your sexual performance anxiety:


Counseling and sex therapy can help you and your partner work out any intimacy issues you may have. It’s important that you shop around for the right therapist for this to work for you. Make sure you feel completely comfortable opening up to this person. You may need another man to talk to, or you may only feel comfortable speaking with a woman. Only you know what you need.

Guided Imagery

OK, it may sound cooky, but research has actually shown that guided imagery, or visualization, can be a good technique for helping relieve sexual anxiety. The idea is to experience yourself in your mind performing like a beast. Do this exercise every day. This shouldn’t be a hard exercise for most guys. The key is to not let your current reality slip in there. In your mind, you do NOT have ED or performance anxiety. You are like a porn star. You can go and go and go and she can’t get enough of you. Think about this over and over and it can send the right signals to the rest of your body.
