Premature Ejaculation and Can't Maintain Erection


Q: My twenty five year old boyfriend prematurely ejaculates nearly every time we have sex (unless it we've had sex multiple times in one day or night). Last night, however, we had sex after going out and drinking a little. He ejaculated pretty fast. At about 5am he tried to initiate intercourse again but he couldn't get hard. Then, again the next morning at 9 am he still couldn't hold an erection and around noon he could maintain his erection but it wasn't nearly as hard as it usually is. He did finish that time. I am just confused because it seems these two problems are completely opposite on the spectrum. I know he finds me immensely attractive and it has nothing to do with me but I can tell he is embarrassed that he can't ever get me to finish. These problems seem like two opposite sides of the spectrum so it is very confusing. Does it seem like there is something wrong and is there anything he can do to help himself? Thanks.
