Male Masturbation/Losing erection
I am a 20 y.o male.
Yesterday, when I was masturbating, I was very horny, I had a rock hard erection and a great fantasy in my mind. However, just when I could feel the cum starting to come to the surface, and I could feel the orgasm coming close, my erection started to go and my dick went flat.
This often happens that I can't maintain a full erection when pleasuring myself.
Is it normal? What can I do to maintain a better, stronger erection?
ANSWER: You don't need an erection to masturbate. You can keep enjoying yourself even if you lose part of your erection. I suspect if you keep on instead of stopping, you will be training yourself to respond and the erection problem will not persist.
Feel free to ask me more questions!

QUESTION: Yes, but if i carry on masturbating without an erection, will i be training my penis to do it's sexual job without being erect. That could mean that when it comes to intercourse, i may go flat before we're done.
It is better if you're erect than not, for sure. Is this an ongoing problem or something that's happened only a few times? If it's a continuing problem, then you might see your doctor, who could order some hormonal tests and other blood work to see if you have a medical condition.
Using visual aids often helps males keep their erections longer.
