My husband experiences numbness during sex in his penis

Patient

Q: My husband is 23 years old and he cannot hold an erection. When he does have an erection I am told that he must concentrate to keep it. I have tried talking to him about it but he refuses to see a doctor about it. We have tried watching porn sometimes it helps sometimes it doesn't. When he looses his erection he tells me that he experiences numbness and cannot feel anything. This has cause a major problem in our marriage. I am trying to be supportive but he refuses to help me figure it out. What can we do to fix this? Please help me!
