Alright, so I have something that I have been worrying about alot lately. It has been about a week and a half since I last had a hard erection. I can't even stimulate myself. I am really worried about this. The only reason I can think of is that I have been under alot of stress lately (parents just got separated, and i moved to a new city about 3 months ago, but i just started counseling for the thing with my parents) so do I need to worry about Erectile disfunction? or is it just because i have been so worn out lately and there are alot of psycological things going on?
I am only 19, and I am do not have sex with my girlfriend, but sometimes we do engage in dry sex, (AKA dry humping) I am worried that the rubbing has affected the nerves in my penis, but i just don't know. Please help me!

According to your description, (your parents divorced and you moved into another city), it is possible that emotional stress has caused temporary erectile dysfunction. Rubbing can’t affect the nerves in your penis. Everything will be fine in time.
