I'm a 34 year-old male with an embarrassing and irritating problem that's destroying my sex life.

When sexually aroused, I produce and emit a large amount of pre-ejaculatory fluid. By sexually aroused I mean even watching something sexy on the computer, or thinking about sex. This seems to be getting worse over the years.

The problems this causes me are two-fold.

Firstly, when I'm in an intimate situation with a woman, I'm nervous and embarrassed when we reach the point where my penis is exposed because at that point I'm very wet. I've seen and heard different reactions to this and it's usually of disgust or surprise. The worst part is sometimes I don't even have an erection when this happens so it's just a flaccid penis oozing pre-ejaculate From that point onwards it becomes difficult if not impossible for me to continue with sex since Im so embarrassed.

Secondly, if I am able to advance beyond foreplay and into intercourse, I can't keep a condom on for more than a few minutes before it's so slippery inside from pre-ejaculate that it starts to come off. At this point I have to stop sex, take off the condom, dry my penis off and put on a new one. Usually after 3 or 4 times my partner and I get so frustrated that I stop being able to perform. Unfortunately it's very difficult for me to achieve orgasm through intercourse - I usually need at least 20 minutes of constant activity so obviously this becomes an issue when I have to change condoms every 3 minutes.

Overall I'm pretty healthy. My one thought is that I masturbate too much (at least once a day) so I've cut back to once a week but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

I know a certain amount of pre-ejaculate is normal but when it's so much that it begins to ruin my sex life, I feel I need help.

Is there anyone that can offer any advice on what to do about this? I'm desperate!

Hi there, thank you for posting your question on Ehealthforum. This is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor.

This problem will get less as you get older. Some antihistamines might reduce it and that's worth trying. But its normal. Tell the lady that she is exiting you too much. Try to have a sense of humour about it. I do not think there is any surgery for this and in any case that would be too radical.

How to avoid condoms slipping off due to excessive precum
For condoms slipping off, try the "female condom." It goes in the woman's vagina(or guy's ass) and stays in there. You go in and out ofthe condom. They make a little crinkly noise is their only drawback. They're totally worth trying out some time. You have to have a partner willing to try it, but sex does take some figuring out. You can't realistically just turn off the lights and everyone has a good time.

As you know, men produce precum on a spectrum of none to tons. You're on the tons end and some people think it's hot. I'm pretty much drizabone and think precum is hot.
