How to tackle Sexcuses

UKMedix (who sell Viagra online) have a forum all about sexual difficulties on their site and they declare that they know that what men say when it comes to sex isn’t always the real reason.  They believe underlying a lot of these excuses is a lack of erectile function confidence. Interesting. Men find that such an embarrassing problem they make up all sorts of other excuses all of which can make their partners feel frustrated and needy and stressed ..so we get on their case and stress them further and it all goes pear-shaped.

Problems shared are indeed problems halved and solutions could be both practical (Viagra, fitness, medical exam) or emotional (relationship therapy, counselling, massage, aromatherapy, reflexology)
