Issues in the bedroom can unnerve even the closest of couples. Sometimes, though, your relationship isn't at the heart of these concerns in the least bit. Rather, as the reasons why men can't finish in bed that have nothing to do with you show, plenty of external factors can complicate the ability to reach orgasm. Oftentimes, it's nothing to take personally.
And really, occasional difficulty reaching climax isn't a huge problem for most people. It just happens. For some researchers, the inability to reach orgasm is only considered diagnosable sexual dysfunction if a problem occurs in about one-fourth of all sexual encounters, as explained in WebMD. If the frequency is lower than that, well, you and your partner are well within the definition of normal. Hey, sex is complicated. But as always, if you or a partner has serious concerns about bedroom issues, or anything else that affects your health, don't hesitation to contact a health professional for more information.
But even when neither you nor your partner has sexual dysfunction, it can still be frustrating to run up against occasional performance issues, so to speak. With that in mind, it's helpful to learn more about the perfectly normal things that can cause orgasmic difficulty.
