Hi, me and my girlfriend have being dating for about 2 years now, and we have recently become sexual active, although we have not had sexual intercourse, we are both virgins, but my 17 year old girlfriend wants me too have sex with her and I feel that I am not ready. but she kept asking so we tried anyway and I could not keep it up, is this because of nerves or a more serious problem?
Chances are good it was nerves and your feelings about pressured into sexual intercourse before you were ready. If the pressure continues or the erection difficulties, it might be a good idea to talk with a counselor.
