Exercises to Overcome Sexual Performance Anxiety

I received the question below from a man who’s experiencing weak erections, which I believe are from sexual performance anxiety.

He feels that even though he’s conserving his semen he still can’t achieve strong erections.  This comes from the ancient Taoist theory that conserving your semen gives you sexual strength.

In my opinion, conserving your semen is not a good idea.  Ejaculating on a regular basis keeps your penis healthy and normally functioning. While some studies have shown that refraining from ejaculating CAN increase testosterone levels, it comes at a price… a rusty, out of shape penis.

Everything in moderation.

He also has a couple of other legitimate concerns regarding overcoming sexual performance anxiety that I address below:


Hi there

Just seen your site and I’m interested in your discoveries. I would like to buy your book.

I have suffered from PE and more recently chronic ED. Even when masturbating. Ive followed taoist theories and refrained, but I always seem to end up in the same place. Its weird I used to have the opposite problem, he was hard always. Its like something has changed.

My biggest fear is I used a topical steroid on my dick for a skin infection and this has somehow made me impotent. All the theories however lead me to start thinking its psychogenic.

Anyway is there any weight in tis taoist theory, or is it in my head,. Nothing shows up in any blood tests

Interested in ur thoughts..



Hello Darren:

I’ve changed my theory on conserving your semen.  No longer do I think it’s a good idea to refrain from ejaculating.  I feel the Taoists were wrong about this.

Regular ejaculation (once daily, or once every other day) is good for your sexual organ.  It sort of works it out, and the ejaculating on a regular basis keeps your stress levels low, and allows you to sleep well… which is good for improving your sex drive and erection quality.

I highly doubt the topical steroid did anything to permanently harm your penis.  Just thinking that there is something wrong with your penis is good enough to prevent you from having quality erections.

You need to know that your penis is healthy and working (regular masturbation will help provide you with this confidence in your “machinery”).  Nothing showing up on your blood tests is a great sign also.


Having any fear or worry will create sexual performance anxiety, and this fear alone can keep you from becoming erect.

Try and control this fear and worry… be calm, relax, enjoy the moment, and don’t even pay attention to your erection.

Having an erection is a natural function, and doesn’t need you to mentally force it to happen.

Let it happen on it’s own.

Try and force it to react, without the natural arousal stimuli taking place in the mind and body (while at ease, allowing energy to “flow), and you will have sexual performance anxiety.

In your case, some natural libido enhancement and erection strengthening exercises will help as well… you can read about them here, which will also help you, along with my techniques to overcome sexual performance anxiety…

Have a good one!

    also i am getting any feeling to have sex after marriage(may be due to anxiety/fear that i have been living with my professional issues).
    pl help me.

    • The fact that you wake up with an erection is a sign that you do not have a physical problem… its all in your head.

      You need to relax, sit back and enjoy sex… your erection is a natural process and happens all on its own… it does not need your mental “willing” and that could actually KEEP you from getting an erection… it can’t be forced
