When clients complain about sexual anxiety — whether it’s the inability to achieve erection or too-rapid ejaculation — they often find themselves dwelling on everything that could possibly go wrong in a future sexual encounter.
That kind of anxiety starts building up much earlier than the actual event itself and can feel crippling and paralyzing in other aspects of daily life. We call this anxiety “performance anxiety” because it reflects the fears of being unable to perform adequately in front of other people.
In this case, “other people” refers to a sexual partner, but performance anxiety rears its ugly head in other areas, ranging from public speaking to interviews.
