Patient : My girlfriend and I are planning to have sex tomorrow for the first time (for me, second for her). We previously tried to have sex on a night when he had been making out and enjoying ourselves for awhile. Truthfully, it was about three and a half hours and by the time we went to have sex, I had had an erection for that time without a pause. When we tried to have sex, my penis was still hard, but not hard enough for penetration. I am worried this might happen again. First, what is a normal period to have an erection and is there anything wrong with me or was my penis just hard for too long? And second, is the answer for tomorrow just to move faster or should we plan to take a break in the middle to let me rest? Thank you for your help. This is embarrassing and I really appreciate your advice.
