    About 90%of the time I perform great sexually but every now and then, I lose my erection during sex before I can cumm. Because of that, I use viagra from time to time. when I do, sometimes I either can't cumm or it takes me a long time to. I'm 41 and I do drink a lot of beer. What could be causing this?

    That's why. Erections can be lost if you consume alcohol within a couple of hours of doing the deed. Alcohol slows the blood flow which is needed for getting and maintaining an erection.

    And if you drink a lot of beer, you're probably overweight, which is also a factor in erection problems.

    Booze will definitely do it as it de-sensitises the head of the penis, especially after a long period of stimulation. Our question is: do you feel the need to drink heavily before sex, and if so, why? Are there issues with control without alcohol? Viagara? Make sure its the real McCoy, there is some shit out there mixed with all sorts. Not good.

    Actually, 90 percent isn't so bad. Certainly not bad enough to take drugs to fix it. Let's say you have sex four times a week. That means about twice a month you can focus on all the other wonderful ways to have sex.

    Get your blood sugar checked.

    Would you care to define "a lot"?

    Beer probably doesn't help but hey it happens to the best of us occasionally!

    It used to happen to me if I got overheated.
