Performance anxiety

In any romantic relationship, there could be challenges to intimacy and sexual performance. It is something a couple and work through together, but you have to talk about it. A reader wants to know how men would want their partner to handle when they have a malfunction. Her man clams up and doesn’t talk about it. What can she do?

Obviously those “Houston, we have a problem” moments in the bedroom can get awkward and embarrassing. Making jokes about it or being too reactive can make it worse. So what is the best way to handle it?

Would you want your partner to back off and give it some time? Would it be helpful to switch things up and get creative? Is that a good opportunity to add some spice?

Have you ever had to deal with malfunction or lack of performance? How did you get past it?
